Consistent Network Management for Software-Defined Networking Based Multicast

Thomas Kohler et 3 al.

Sep 1, 2016 in IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management
Updating a network is an essential and continual task in the management of today`s softwarized networks. When applying updates on distributed network elements, desired network properties, such as drop- and loop-freeness, might be transiently violated. Although being crucial, update consistency has yet been less considered in network management. In this paper, we argue for incorporating the particu...

eSPICE: Probabilistic Load Shedding from Input Event Streams in Complex Event Processing

Ahmad Slo et 3 al.

Feb 14, 2020 in Arxiv
Complex event processing systems process the input event streams on-the-fly. Since input event rate could overshoot the system's capabilities and results in violating a defined latency bound, load shedding is used to drop a portion of the input event streams. The crucial question here is how many and which events to drop so the defined latency bound is maintained and the degradation in the quality...

Dynamic QoS-Aware Traffic Planning for Time-Triggered Flows with Conflict Graphs

Jonathan Falk et 5 al.

May 5, 2021 in Arxiv
Many networked applications, e.g., in the domain of cyber-physical systems, require strict service guarantees, usually in the form of jitter and latency bounds, for time-triggered traffic flows. It is a notoriously hard problem to compute a network-wide traffic plan that satisfies these requirements, and dynamic changes in the flow set add even more challenges. Existing traffic-planning methods ar...

Efficient Capturing of Environmental Data with Mobile RFID Readers

Harald Weinschrott et 3 al.

Jan 1, 2009 in 2009 Tenth International Conference on Mobile Data Management
In this paper we introduce a novel scenario for environmental sensing based on the combination of simple and cheap RFID-based sensors and mobile devices like mobile phones with integrated RFID readers. We envision a system that exploits the availability of these devices to cooperatively read sensors installed in the environment, and transmit the data to a server infrastructure. To achieve quality ...

Communication primitives supporting the execution of atomic actions at remote sites

Kurt Rothermel

Jan 1, 1984 in Proceedings of the ACM SIGCOMM symposium on Communications architectures and protocols
A request manager is described that provides a set of communication primitives supporting the cooperation between processes requesting service and processes providing service. These communication primitives allow the initiation and termination of atomic actions at remote sites. They also maintain recoverable action state tables, which can be used to recall uncompleted actions during restart recove...

An Overlay Network for Forwarding Symbolically Addressed Geocast Messages

Frank Dürr, Kurt Rothermel

Jan 1, 2006 in Proceedings of 15th International Conference on Computer Communications and Networks
Geocast, which allows for forwarding messages to hosts residing at specified geographic areas, is a promising communication paradigm with a wide range of applications. Geocast target areas can be specified either by geometric figures or symbolic addresses, such as /usa/f 1/miami/market-street. In this paper, we present a novel geocast routing protocol for symbolically addressed messages. Compared ...

iSense: Energy-aware crowd-sensing framework

Mohamed Abdelaal et 4 al.

Jan 1, 2017 in 2017 IEEE 36th International Performance Computing and Communications Conference
Recently, crowd-sensing has rapidly been evolved thanks to the technological advancement in personal mobile devices. This emerging technology opens the door for numerous applications to collect sensory data from the crowd. To provide people with a motive for participating in data acquisition, the crowd-sensing systems have to sidestep burdening the resources allocated to the mobile devices, id est...

PreCon - Expressive Context Prediction Using Stochastic Model Checking

Stefan Föll et 3 al.

Jan 1, 2011
Ubiquitous systems need to determine the context of humans to deliver the right services at the right time. As the needs of humans are often coupled to their future context, the ability to predict relevant changes in a user`s context is a key factor for providing intelligence and proactivity. Current context prediction systems only allow applications to query for the next user context (e.g. the us...

Bandwidth-efficient content-based routing on software-defined networks

Sukanya Bhowmik et 4 al.

Jan 1, 2016 in Proceedings of the 10th ACM International Conference on Distributed and Event-based Systems
With the vision of Internet of Things gaining popularity at a global level, efficient publish/subscribe middleware for communication within and across datacenters is extremely desirable. In this respect, the very popular Software-defined Networking (SDN), which enables publish/subscribe middleware to perform line-rate filtering of events directly on hardware, can prove to be very useful. While dep...
