Recent advances in peer-to-peer (P2P) technologies will enable users to establish ubiquitous connectivity among their personal networked devices and those of others. Building on top of such technologies, we propose a platform of middleware and user interaction tools, called MyNet, that allows everyday users to easily and securely access and share with(More)
In this paper, an efficient scheme is proposed based on the introduced deadline-credit-based (DC) policy. This scheme is appropriate for any prerecorded media, but is particularly relevant for prerecorded semisoft continuous media (CM) applications. Semisoft are applications with very small initial delay tolerance and, thus, for which very small amount of(More)
—While pure web-based services and P2P technologies are popular for personal and social networking, they both have inherent limitations. A hybrid P2P/Infrastrucutre approach could leverage strengths and address limitations of both paradigms. In this paper we propose such a platform based on MyNet, our P2P personal and social networking system. The new(More)
Home networks and networked consumer electronic devices are increasingly becoming a part of our everyday lives. One of the challenges in designing smart home technology is making these systems secure and, at the same time, easy-to-use for non-expert consumers. We believe that mobile devices equipped with a " touch " network interface and corresponding(More)
— In the past, wireless network reliability issues have received limited attention. Previously proposed solutions have focused on protection against base station failures, which may require significantly more base stations than necessary. Actual data from wireless carriers suggest that problems in the backhaul are the uttermost reliability problems faced,(More)
The Quality of Service (QoS) of real time applications is aaected in a rather direct manner by the timely delivery of Application-level Data Units (ADUs) which are typically mapped into several Network-level Data Units (NDUs). As a consequence, it would be reasonable to associate a common deadline with all the NDUs in one ADU and develop a scheduling policy(More)
