11. A Load Balancing Algorithm to Overcome the Rate-Limiting Effects in IEEE 802.11 Networks
Topic: Networking
Published: 11/26/2007
Authors: Vincent Gauthier, Richard Antoine Rouil, Nada T Golmie
Abstract: In an IEEE 802.11 network, a single user can reduce the performance of all other users attached to the same access point. To overcome this problem, we propose to take advantage of the increasing number of devices supporting multiple network interface ...

12. A Low-Complexity Solution to Decode Diversity-Oriented Block Codes in MIMO Systems with Inter-Symbol Interference
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/1/2012
Authors: Hamid Gharavi, Chong Xu
Abstract: In this paper we firstly propose a block-code based general model to combat the Inter-Symbol Interference (ISI) caused by frequency selective channels in a Multi-Input Multi- Output (MIMO) system and/or by asynchronous cooperative transmissions. The ...

13. A Methodology to Evaluate Wireless Technologies for the Smart Grid
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/4/2010
Authors: Michael R Souryal, Camillo A Gentile, David Wesley Griffith, David E Cypher, Nada T Golmie
Abstract: This paper presents a methodology for assessing the suitability of various wireless technologies for meeting the communication requirements of Smart Grid applications. It describes an approach for translating application requirements to link traffic ...

14. A Model-Based Analysis of First-Generation Service Discovery Systems
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 500-260
Topic: Networking
Published: 10/1/2005
Authors: Christopher E Dabrowski, Kevin L Mills, Stephen Quirolgico
Abstract: Future commercial software systems will be based on distributed service-oriented architectures in which applications are composed dynamically from remote components. A key part of service-oriented computing is the ability for clients to discover remo ...

15. A New Standard for Securing Media-Independent Handover: IEEE 802.21a
Topic: Networking
Published: 12/31/2013
Authors: Rafa Marin-Lopez, Fernando Bernal-Hidalgo, Subir Das, Lidong Chen, Yoshihiro Ohba
Abstract: When enabling handover between different radio interfaces (e.g., handover from 3G to Wi-Fi), reducing network access authentication latency and securing handover related signaling messages are major challenging problems, amongst many others. The IEEE ...

16. A Novel Model-Based Indoor Positioning Using Signal Strength
Topic: Networking
Published: 9/3/2007
Authors: Kamran Sayrafian, D Kaspar
Abstract: A simple technique to estimate the position of a mobile node inside a building is based on the Received Signal Strength (RSS). In a previous publication, we investigated the feasibility of using circular array antennas and beamforming in order to ena ...

17. A Novel Topology Control Scheme for Future Wireless Mesh Networks
Topic: Networking
Published: 11/30/2008
Authors: Yi Qian, Kejie Lu, Tao Zhang, Shengli Fu
Abstract: In this paper, we address the topology control issue for future wireless mesh networks (WMNs) based on the principle of service-oriented design. In particular, we propose a novel topology control scheme that attempts to maximize the overall throughpu ...

18. A Profile for IPv6 in the U.S. Government - Version 1.0
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 500-267
Topic: Networking
Published: 7/1/2008
Authors: Douglas C Montgomery, J. Stephen Nightingale, Sheila E Frankel, Mark Erwin Carson
Abstract: This publication seeks to assist Federal agencies in formulating plans for the acquisition of IPv6 technologies. To achieve this, we define a standards profile for IPv6 in the USG that is intended to be applicable to all future uses of IPv6 in non-cl ...

19. A Quantum Network Manager That Supports A One-Time Pad Stream
Topic: Networking
Published: 2/11/2008
Authors: Alan Mink, Lijun Ma, Anastase Nakassis, Haolang Xu, Oliver T Slattery, Barry J. Hershman, Xiao Tang
Abstract: We have begun to expand the NIST quantum key distribution (QKD) system into a quantum network to support secure cryptography. We are starting with a simple three-node network, one Alice switched between Bob1 and Bob2. To support such a quantum networ ...

20. A Review of Current Research Work on BGP Security
Topic: Networking
Published: 7/1/2005
Author: Kotikalapudi Sriram
Abstract: We examine the performance of multimodal biometric authentication systems using state-of-the-art Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) fingerprint and face biometric systems on a population approaching 1,000 individuals. Majority of prior studies of multi ...
