61. A Secure VANET MAC Protocol for DSRC Applications
Topic: Networking
Published: 11/30/2008
Authors: Yi Qian, Nader Moayeri, Kejie Lu
Abstract: Vehicular ad hoc networking is an important component of Intelligent Transportation Systems. The main benefit of vehicular ad hoc network (VANET) communication is seen in active safety systems that increase passenger safety by exchanging warning mess ...

62. Call Admission Control for Mobile Agent Based Handoff in Wireless Mesh Networks
Topic: Networking
Published: 11/17/2008
Authors: Yi Qian, Bo Rong, Kejie Lu, Michel Kadoch
Abstract: Wireless mesh network (WMN) has emerged recently as a promising technology for next-generation wireless networking. In WMN, it is important to provide an efficient handoff scheme, due to the frequent user mobility. To address this issue, we propose ...

63. Performance of A Novel Topology Control Scheme for Future Wireless Mesh Networks
Topic: Networking
Published: 11/17/2008
Authors: Yi Qian, Kejie Lu, Tao Zhang, Shengli Fu, Ayat Jafari
Abstract: In this paper, we address the topology control issues for future wireless mesh networks (WMNs). In particular, we propose a novel topology control scheme that attempts to maximize the overall throughput in the network and that takes into account traf ...

64. Directional Antenna for Multipath Ad Hoc Routing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7529
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/15/2008
Authors: Hamid Gharavi, Bin Hu
Abstract: Multipath routing can be effectively used to maximize the utilization of network resources for real-time traffic. In mobile ad-hoc network environments, this approach can suffer from co-channel interference due to the simultaneous transmission of pac ...

65. Efficient Error Concealment for the Whole-frame Loss Based on H.264/AVC
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/15/2008
Authors: Hamid Gharavi, Bo Yan
Abstract: For low bit-rate video communications, each video frame usually fills the payload of a single network packet. In this situation, the loss of a packet may result in loosing the entire video frame. Currently, most existing error concealment algorithms ...

66. IEEE 802.21 Transport Solution Using Cross-Layer Optimized Stream Control Transmission Protocol
Topic: Networking
Published: 9/15/2008
Authors: Richard Antoine Rouil, Nada T Golmie, Nicolas Montavont
Abstract: The Media Independent Handover (MIH) architecture is designed to facilitate the signaling and enable seamless handovers in heterogeneous networks. In this paper, we propose a solution using the Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) to efficient ...

67. QOS-Aware Channel Scanning for IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN
Topic: Networking
Published: 9/15/2008
Authors: Nada T Golmie, Sang-Jo Yoo
Abstract: Channel scanning is an important aspect of seamless handovers since it is required in order to find a target point of attachment (PoA). In the IEEE 802.11 WLAN, scanning of other channels causes service disruptions with the current AP so that the pro ...

68. A Robust Model-Based Approach to Indoor Positioning Using Signal Strength
Topic: Networking
Published: 9/9/2008
Authors: Kamran Sayrafian, Dominik Kasper
Abstract: A simple technique to estimate the position of a mobile node inside a building is based on the Received Signal Strength (RSS). In previous publications, we investigated the effectiveness of using circular array antennas and beamforming in order to en ...

69. Architectural Considerations for Mapping Distribution Protocols
Topic: Networking
Published: 8/1/2008
Authors: Kotikalapudi Sriram, Young-Tak Kim, Douglas C Montgomery
Abstract: In this paper, we present a discussion of some architectural ideas pertaining to the mapping distribution protocol. The efficiency of this protocol in terms of response time and the volume of traffic load it generates are important considerations. We ...

70. Guide to General Server Security
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-123
Topic: Networking
Published: 7/25/2008
Authors: Karen Ann Scarfone, Wayne Jansen, Miles C. Tracy
Abstract: The purpose of this document is to assist organizations in understanding the fundamental activities performed as part of securing and maintaining the security of servers that provide services over network communications as a main function. The docume ...
