Quality of service in network communication is mainly assured by traffic management consisting in a variety of protocols and mechanisms whose role is to prevent the network from being congested. Traffic management has been a very active area of research for two decades following the conception of packetswitched integrated services networks, such as the Internet. This chapter provides samples of the state of the art in traffic management. It includes contributions on traffic theory, traffic and… 


The proposed system is designed to accept information about any emergency cases such as the passing of president, or any other VIP persons, ambulances, or fire extinguisher trucks using radio frequency identification technology.

Problem of optimization of a transport traffic at preliminary registration of queires with use of CBSMAP-model

The problem of optimization of a transport traffic at preliminary registration of demands with use of the CBSMAP model is investigated. For the solution of an objective application of the queueing

Real-Time Traffic Controlling Through Multi-Agent Technology

The proposed multi-agent system technology is one of the modern software techniques, capable of handling complexity in the dynamic environment and provides remarkable efficiency than the other existing methods.


This dissertation will analyze and present an automated process in road intersections of industrial zones, with traffic interruptions of the main road with the purpose of the safe passage of heavy vehicles and personnel, in order to improve working conditions.

Network Traffic Analysis Using Queuing Model and Regression Technique

This paper aims to provide a history of the publication of this book and some of the key events leading up to and including its publication.

Shared-Use Bus Priority Lanes on City Streets: Case Studies in Design and Management

This paper examines the policies and strategies governing the design and, especially, operations of bus lanes in major congested urban centers. It focuses on bus lanes that operate in mixed traffic

Scheduling Trains on Parallel Lines with Crossover Points

Extensive numerical investigations show that the approach successfully and consistently creates train schedules of high quality and shows that compound buffers accurately portray the technical constraints of the real system.

Research on High Performance Intrusion Prevention System Based on Suricata

Research on the Suricata IPS applied to Huawei Kunpeng 920 CPU and Galaxy Kylin operating system, designs defense rules for common network threats at present, and tuning the performance of SuricATA IPS in a high-traffic network environment is presented.

The public transport control system

The article is devoted to the construction of an accurate forecasting system of public transport arrival, a systems-based analysis of traffic jams, traffic light schemes and individual parameters of

Ant traffic rules

The study of ant traffic can not only uncover basic principles of behavioral ecology and evolution in social insects but also provide new insights into the study of traffic systems in general.



An Approach to Support Traffic Classes in IP Networks

The approach allows for the dynamic distribution of network resources among classes, based on the measured quality of service and on the sensitivity of classes to performance degradation, without implying any substantial change to current IP technologies.

A scalable technique for quality-of-service management termed egress admission control is developed, which allows for cross traffic that cannot be directly measured, and scheduling policies that may be ill-described across many network nodes.

Congestion at flow level and the impact of user behaviour

Efficient network QoS provisioning based on per node traffic shaping

This paper focuses on the class of rate-controlled service (RCS) disciplines, in which traffic from each connection is reshaped at every hop, and develops end-to-end delay bounds for the general case where different reshapers are used at eachHop, and establishes that these bounds can also be achieved when the shapers at each hop have the same "minimal" envelope.

Packet management techniques for measurement based end-to-end admission control in IP networks

A thorough investigation of an EMBAC scheme, in which probing queues congestion control is enforced by means of a probing packet expiration deadline at each router, and it is shown that EMBac-PD can provide strict QoS guarantees even in the presence of very light probing overhead (few probing packets per flow setup).

Distributed admission control

This paper describes a framework for admission control for a packet-based network where the decisions are taken by edge devices or end-systems, rather than resources within the network, and allows networks to be explicitly analyzed, and consequently engineered.

A Framework for Policy-Based Management of QoS Aware IP Networks

A policy framework suited for dynamic network management in QoS-enabled IP networks is described and a system prototype pointing out the main features of a Differentiated Services network management and configuration based on Policy System Management is shown.

A Queue Management System for Differentiated-Services IP Routers

A queue management system that, in conjunction with scheduling mechanisms, is able to support class differentiation and is supported by a prototype that was subject to several tests, in terms of packet drops and burst tolerance.

An ECN probe-based connection acceptance control

This paper discusses an ECN (Explicit Congestion Notification) probe-based admission control protocol that is fast, scalable and robust and concludes that probe- based admission control is viable in both partitioned and integrated networks, but more research is needed to understand the implications for network policy control.

Endpoint admission control with delay variation measurements for QoS in IP networks

Results show that, despite the lack of core routers cooperation, toll-quality performance figures can be obtained even in severe overload conditions and a comparison with an EAC scheme driven by probe losses only shows that the use of delay variation statistics as endpoint decision criterion is a key factor for EAC effectiveness.
