Following this observation, a considerable effort in the literature has been devoted to the design of distributed algorithms that optimally configure the WLAN parameters based on current conditions. In this paper, we propose a novel algorithm that, in contrast to previous proposals which are mostly based on heuristics, is sustained by mathematical foundations from multivariable control theory. A key advantage of the algorithm over existing approaches is that it is compliant with the 802.11 standard and can be implemented with current wireless cards without introducing any changes into the hardware or firmware. We study the performance of our proposal by means of theoretical analysis, simulations, and a real implementation. Results show that the algorithm substantially outperforms previous approaches in terms of throughput and delay.02 A Cooperative Clustering Protocol for Energy Saving of Mobile Devices with WLAN and Bluetooth Interfaces One of the most widely used wireless communication standards is a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) (IEEE 802.11). However, WLAN has a serious power consumption problem. In this paper, we propose a novel energy saving approach that exploits the multiradio feature of recent mobile devices equipped with WLAN and Bluetooth interfaces. Unlike previous approaches, our work is based on clustering. In our work, a cluster is a Bluetooth Personal Area Network (PAN), which consists of one cluster head and several regular nodes. The cluster head acts as a gateway between the PAN and the WLAN, enabling the regular nodes to access the WLAN infrastructure via low-power Bluetooth. We present a distributed clustering protocol, Cooperative Networking protocol (CONET), which dynamically reforms clusters according to each node’s bandwidth requirement, energy use, and application type. CONET does not require modifications of existing wireless infrastructures because clustering is performed independently of WLAN access points. We implemented the CONET prototype with four wearable computing devices to evaluate the performance on real hardware. We also simulated CONET for large networks of more than 100 mobile nodes. Both results demonstrate that our approach is effective in reducing the power consumption of WLAN.03 A Distributed and Scalable Time Slot Allocation Protocol for Wireless Sensor Networks There are performance deficiencies that hamper the deployment of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) in critical monitoring applications. Such applications are characterized by considerable network load generated as a result of sensing some characteristics of the monitored system. Excessive packet collisions lead to packet losses and retransmissions, resulting in significant overhead costs and latency. In order to address this issue, we introduce a distributed and scalable scheduling access scheme that mitigates high data loss in data-intensive sensor networks and can also handle some mobility. Our approach alleviates transmission collisions by employing virtual grids thatMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

We show that our algorithm derives conflictfree time slot allocation schedules without incurring global overhead in scheduling. Furthermore, we verify the effectiveness of our protocol by simulation experiments. The results demonstrate that our technique can efficiently handle sensor mobility with acceptable data loss, low packet delay, and low overhead.04 A Medium Access Control Scheme for Wireless LANs with Constant-Time Contention In today’s wireless networks, stations using the IEEE 802.11 Standard contend for the channel using the Distributed Coordination Function (DCF). Research has shown that DCF’s performance degrades especially with the large number of stations. This becomes more concerning due to the increasing proliferation of wireless devices. In this paper, we present a Medium Access Control (MAC) scheme for wireless LANs and compare its performance to DCF and to other efficient schemes. Our scheme, which attempts to resolve the contention in a constant number of slots (or constant time), is called CONTI. The contention resolution happens over a predefined number of slots. In a slot, the stations probabilistically send a jam signal on the channel. The stations listening retire if they hear a jam signal. The others continue to the next slot. Over several slots, we aim to have one station remaining in the contention, which will then transmit its data. We find the optimal parameters of CONTI and present an analysis on its performance. More comprehensive evaluation is presented in the simulation results where we compare CONTI, DCF, and other efficient schemes from the literature. We consider the number of slots used, the collision rate, the throughput, the delay, and the fairness. The highest throughput was achieved by CONTI. Moreover, our results provide measurements from each of the schemes that we consider and provide the insight on each scheme’s operation.05 A Privacy-Preserving Location Monitoring System for Wireless Sensor Networks Monitoring personal locations with a potentially untrusted server poses privacy threats to the monitored individuals. To this end, we propose a privacy-preserving location monitoring system for wireless sensor networks. In our system, we design two innetwork location anonymization algorithms, namely, resource and quality-aware algorithms, that aim to enable the system to provide high-quality location monitoring services for system users, while preserving personal location privacy. Both algorithms rely on the wellestablished k-anonymity privacy concept, that is, a person is indistinguishable among k persons, to enable trusted sensor nodes to provide the aggregate location information of monitored persons for our system. Each aggregate location is in a form of a monitored area A along with the number of monitored persons residing in A, where A contains at least k persons. The resource-aware algorithm aims to minimize communication and computational cost, while the quality-aware algorithm aims to maximize the accuracy of the aggregate locations by minimizing their monitored areas. To utilize the aggregate location information to provide location monitoring services, we use a spatial histogram approach that estimates the distribution of the monitored persons based on the gathered aggregate location information. Then, the estimated distribution is used to provide location monitoring services through answering range queries. We evaluate our system through simulated experiments. The results show that our system provides high-quality location monitoring services for system users and guarantees the location privacy of the monitored persons.Madurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

However, they face to a unique challenge based on the fluctuating nature of heterogeneous spectrum bands as well as the diverse service requirements of various applications. In this paper, a spectrum decision framework is proposed to determine a set of spectrum bands by considering the application requirements as well as the dynamic nature of spectrum bands. To this end, first, each spectrum is characterized by jointly considering primary user activity and spectrum sensing operations. Based on this, a minimum variancebased spectrum decision is proposed for real-time applications, which minimizes the capacity variance of the decided spectrum bands subject to the capacity constraints. For best-effort applications, a maximum capacity-based spectrum decision is proposed where spectrum bands are decided to maximize the total network capacity. Moreover, a dynamic resource management scheme is developed to coordinate the spectrum decision adaptively dependent on the time-varying cognitive radio network capacity. Simulation results show that the proposed methods provide efficient bandwidth utilization while satisfying service requirements.07 Adaptive Location-Oriented Content Delivery in Delay-Sensitive Pervasive Applications In this paper, we introduce a delay-sensitive service that involves transmitting large amounts of location-based data to nodes at multiple locations. Given a limited amount of access points (APs) and an abundance of service requests that result from the nodes moving around, a typical content delivery service would inevitably introduce considerable delay. To solve this problem, we analyze the movement pattern of mobile nodes and approximate it as a semi-Markov process. Based on this model, we explore different components of the underlying service delay and propose that APs should use a multicast strategy to minimize the queuing delay component. Furthermore, we demonstrate the feasibility of employing nodes, which already have their own local copies of location-relevant data, to relay such data to other nodes by employing one or multiple communication channels. Lastly, we examine the resulting algorithms and study their performance relative to baseline content-delivery schemes through simulations.08 An Improved Geocast for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks Geographic addressing of packets within mobile ad hoc networks enables novel applications, including hard real-time engagement simulation in military training systems, geographic command and control functions in training and emergency communications, and commercial messaging applications as well. The most scalable implementation of geoaddressing is via a geocast protocol, where nodes selectively retransmit packets based on local decision rules. Well-designed retransmission heuristics yield scalable geographic flooding that outperforms alternative geoaddressing approaches. However, previous geocast implementations, while effective, fall into two categories. Approaches based on flooding are unscalable due to the high load they generate. Scalable approaches, on the other hand, have trouble in complex environments, lacking sufficient intelligence about the necessary directionality of packet flow. The present paper defines a novel geocast heuristic, the Center Distance with Priority (CD-P) Heuristic, which both significantly improves on reliabilityMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

This paper describes the new technique as well as an evaluation study comparing it to previous approaches.09 Analysis of Best Channel Feedback and Its Adaptive Algorithms for Multicarrier Wireless Data Systems Multiuser diversity techniques are used in multicarrier data systems to enhance downlink cell throughput. This requires downlink channel information from the users that is opportunistically used by a base station to send data to the users with good channel condition. Channel feedback from the user to the base station incurs high overhead especially when many users are in the cell and each user needs to report channel information over multiple channels, as in OFDMA systems. To reduce the quantity of feedback information without significant throughput degradation, a practical strategy is to deliver feedback on a partial set of channels with the best channel quality. We call it best feedback, and this reporting scheme carried out for best four or five among 24 channels has been already adopted in the IEEE 802.16e standard. Considering real feedback conditions, we investigate the performance of a best feedback scheme and derive the optimal number of channels for which information needs to be fed back to keep the throughput gap (compared to a full feedback scheme) within a target margin. From the optimal condition, we propose an adaptive best feedback algorithm, where the number of reported channels is adjusted to adapt to the number of users in the cell. We also propose an adjusted periodic feedback algorithm, where users are divided into groups and scheduling is carried out group by group, so a user can report feedback information when his group is scheduled, thereby reducing the frequency of feedback transmission. To support differentiated performance, we further propose heterogeneous feedback algorithms where users are divided into heterogeneous groups, each with a different group size or a different feedback period. Numerical results validate our analysis and provide meaningful insights into the design of various channel feedback schemes.10 Anticollision Protocols for Single-Reader RFID Systems: Temporal Analysis and Optimization One of the major challenges in the use of Radio Frequency-based Identification (RFID) on a large scale is the ability to read a large number of tags quickly. Central to solving this problem is resolving collisions that occur when multiple tags reply to the query of a reader. To this purpose, several MAC protocols for passive RFID systems have been proposed. These typically build on traditional MAC schemes, such as aloha and tree-based protocols. In this paper, we propose a new performance metric by which to judge these anticollision protocols: time system efficiency. This metric provides a direct measure of the time taken to read a group of tags. We then evaluate a set of well-known RFID MAC protocols in light of this metric. Based on the insights gained, we propose a new anticollision protocol, and show that it significantly outperforms previously proposed mechanisms.11 Autonomous Deployment of Heterogeneous Mobile Sensors In this paper, we address the problem of deploying heterogeneous mobile sensors over a target area. Traditional approaches to mobile sensor deployment are specifically designed for homogeneous networks. Nevertheless, network and device homogeneity is an unrealistic assumption in most practical scenarios, and previous approaches fail when adopted in heterogeneous operative settings. For this reason, we introduce VorLag, a generalization of the Voronoi-based approach which exploits the Laguerre geometry. We theoretically prove the appropriateness of ourMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

In addition, we demonstrate that VorLag can be extended to deal with dynamically generated events or uneven energy depletion due to communications. Finally, by means of simulations, we show that VorLag provides a very stable sensor behavior, with fast and guaranteed termination and moderate energy consumption. We also show that VorLag performs better than its traditional counterpart and other methods based on virtual forces.12 Breath: An Adaptive Protocol for Industrial Control Applications Using Wireless Sensor Networks An energy-efficient, reliable and timely data transmission is essential for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) employed in scenarios where plant information must be available for control applications. To reach a maximum efficiency, cross-layer interaction is a major design paradigm to exploit the complex interaction among the layers of the protocol stack. This is challenging because latency, reliability, and energy are at odds, and resource-constrained nodes support only simple algorithms. In this paper, the novel protocol Breath is proposed for control applications. Breath is designed for WSNs where nodes attached to plants must transmit information via multihop routing to a sink. Breath ensures a desired packet delivery and delay probabilities while minimizing the energy consumption of the network. The protocol is based on randomized routing, medium access control, and duty-cycling jointly optimized for energy efficiency. The design approach relies on a constrained optimization problem, whereby the objective function is the energy consumption and the constraints are the packet reliability and delay. The challenging part is the modeling of the interactions among the layers by simple expressions of adequate accuracy, which are then used for the optimization by in-network processing. The optimal working point of the protocol is achieved by a simple algorithm, which adapts to traffic variations and channel conditions with negligible overhead. The protocol has been implemented and experimentally evaluated on a testbed with off-the-shelf wireless sensor nodes, and it has been compared with a standard IEEE 802.15.4 solution. Analytical and experimental results show that Breath is tunable and meets reliability and delay requirements. Breath exhibits a good distribution of the working load, thus ensuring a long lifetime of the network. Therefore, Breath is a good candidate for efficient, reliable, and timely data gathering for control applications.13 Channel-Aware Routing in MANETs with Route Handoff In wireless mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), packet transmission is impaired by radio link fluctuations. This paper proposes a novel channel adaptive routing protocol which extends the Ad hoc On-Demand Multipath Distance Vector (AOMDV) routing protocol to accommodate channel fading. Specifically, the proposed Channel-Aware AOMDV (CA- AOMDV) uses the channel average nonfading duration as a routing metric to select stable links for path discovery, and applies a preemptive handoff strategy to maintain reliable connections by exploiting channel state information. Using the same information, paths can be reused when they become available again, rather than being discarded. We provide new theoretical results for the downtime and lifetime of a live-die-live multiple path system, as well as detailed theoretical expressions for common network performance measures, providing useful insights into the differences in performance between CA-AOMDV and AOMDV. Simulation and theoretical results show that CA- AOMDV has greatly improved network performance over AOMDV.14 Cognitive Medium Access: Exploration, Exploitation, and CompetitionMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

First, the scenario in which a single cognitive user wishes to opportunistically exploit the availability of frequency bands is considered. By adopting tools from the classical bandit problem, optimal as well as low complexity asymptotically optimal solutions are developed. Next, the multiple cognitive user scenario is considered. The situation in which the availability probability of each channel is known is first considered. An optimal symmetric strategy that maximizes the total throughput of the cognitive users is developed. To avoid the possible selfish behavior of the cognitive users, a game-theoretic model is then developed. The performance of both models is characterized analytically. Then, the situation in which the availability probability of each channel is unknown a priori is considered. Low-complexity medium access protocols, which strike an optimal balance between exploration and exploitation in such competitive environments, are developed. The operating points of these low-complexity protocols are shown to converge to those of the scenario in which the availability probabilities are known. Finally, numerical results are provided to illustrate the impact of sensing errors and other practical considerations.15 Compatibility between Three Well-Known Broadcast Tree Construction Algorithms and Various Metrics Broadcast routing is a critical component in the routing design. While there are plenty of routing metrics and broadcast routing schemes in current literature, it remains an unsolved problem as to which metrics are compatible with a specific broadcast routing scheme. In particular, in the wireless broadcast routing context where transmission has an inherent broadcast property, there is a potential danger of incompatible combination of broadcast routing algorithms and metrics. This paper shows that different broadcast routing algorithms have different requirements on the properties of broadcast routing metrics. The metric properties for broadcast routing algorithms in both undirected network topologies and directed network topologies are developed and proved. They are successfully used to verify the compatibility between broadcast routing metrics and broadcast routing algorithms.16 Context-Based Network Estimation for Energy-Efficient Ubiquitous Wireless Connectivity Context information brings new opportunities for efficient and effective system resource management of mobile devices. In this work, we focus on the use of context information to achieve energy-efficient, ubiquitous wireless connectivity. Our field-collected data show that the energy cost of network interfaces poses a great challenge to ubiquitous connectivity, despite decent availability of cellular networks. We propose to leverage the complementary strengths of Wi-Fi and cellular interfaces by automatically selecting the most efficient one based on context information. We formulate the selection of wireless interfaces as a statistical decision problem. The challenge is to accurately estimate Wi-Fi network conditions without powering up the network interface. We explore the use of different context information, including time, history, cellular network conditions, and device motion, to statistically estimate Wi-Fi network conditions with negligible overhead. We evaluate several context-based algorithms for the estimation and prediction of current and future network conditions. Simulations using field-collected traces show that our network estimation algorithms can improve the average battery lifetime of a commercial mobile phone for an ECG reporting application by 40 percent, very close to the estimated theoretical upper bound of 42 percent. Furthermore, our most effective algorithm can predict Wi-Fi availability for one and ten hours into the future with 95 and 90 percent accuracy, respectively.Madurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

However, a better system performance, e.g., in terms of a lower overall frame loss ratio (FLR), can be achieved if BER and FDR are jointly optimized. In this paper, we propose a cross-layer optimization scheme called traffic-adaptive scheme for multicode CDMA operating over a time division multiple access (TDMA) channel. Based on the traffic condition and buffer status, this scheme employs a Markov Decision Process (MDP) to determine the optimal value of the maximum number of simultaneous data frames that can be transmitted in each time slot of a TDMA frame so as to minimize the overall FLR of the system. To facilitate implementation, we also propose an approximation scheme named the rateadaptive scheme to reduce the computation cost. Simulation and analytical results show that both the traffic- adaptive scheme and rate-adaptive scheme can significantly reduce FLR, increase the system throughput, and optimize the packet access delay of the system. Furthermore, the rate-adaptive scheme can achieve a performance close to the traffic-adaptive scheme when the traffic load in the system is high.18 Data Delivery Properties of Human Contact Networks Pocket Switched Networks take advantage of social contacts to opportunistically create data paths over time. This work employs empirical traces to examine the effect of the human contact process on data delivery in such networks. The contact occurrence distribution is found to be highly uneven: contacts between a few node pairs occur too frequently, leading to inadequate mixing in the network, while the majority of contacts occur rarely, but are essential for global connectivity. This distribution of contacts leads to a significant variation in the fraction of node pairs that can be connected over time windows of similar duration. Good time windows tend to have a large clique of nodes that can all reach each other. It is shown that the clustering coefficient of the contact graph over a time window is a good predictor of achievable connectivity. We then examine all successful paths found by flooding and show that though delivery times vary widely, randomly sampling a small number of paths between each source and destination is sufficient to yield a delivery time distribution close to that of flooding over all paths. This result suggests that the rate at which the network can deliver data is remarkably robust to path failures.19 Design and Performance Analysis of Mobility Management Schemes Based on Pointer Forwarding for Wireless Mesh Networks We propose efficient mobility management schemes based on pointer forwarding for wireless mesh networks (WMNs) with the objective to reduce the overall network traffic incurred by mobility management and packet delivery. The proposed schemes are per-user-based, i.e., the optimal threshold of the forwarding chain length that minimizes the overall network traffic is dynamically determined for each individual mobile user, based on the user’s specific mobility and service patterns. We develop analytical models based on stochastic Petri nets to evaluate the performance of the proposed schemes. We demonstrate that there exists an optimal threshold of the forwarding chain length, given a set of parameters characterizing the specific mobility and service patterns of a mobile user. We also demonstrate that our schemes yield significantly better performance than schemes that apply a static threshold to all mobile users. A comparative analysis shows that our pointer forwarding schemes outperform routing-basedMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

We have collected a large continuous acceleration data set from eight experimental subjects going about their normal daily routine for three days each. Each subject is instrumented with a data collection apparatus that simultaneously logs 3-axis, 80 Hz acceleration data from six body locations. We use this data set to optimize a firstprinciples physical model of the commonly used velocity damped resonant generator (VDRG) by selecting physical parameters such as resonant frequency and damping coefficient to maximize the harvested power. Our results show that with reasonable assumptions on size, mass, placement, and efficiency of VDRG harvesters, most body- mounted wireless sensors and even some consumer electronics devices can be powered continuously and indefinitely from everyday motion. We have optimized the power harvesters for each individual and for each body location. In addition, we present the potential of designing a damping- and frequency-tunable power harvester that could mitigate the power reduction of a generator generalized for “average” subjects. We present the full details on the collection of the acceleration data sets, the development of the VDRG model, and a numerical simulator, and discuss some of the future challenges that remain in this promising field of research.21 Discriminant Minimization Search for Large-Scale RF-Based Localization Systems In large-scale fingerprinting localization systems, fine-grained location estimation and quick location determination are conflicting concerns. To achieve finer grained localization, we have to collect signal patterns at a larger number of training locations. However, this will incur higher computation cost during the pattern-matching process. In this paper, we propose a novel discriminant minimization search (DMS)-based localization methodology. Continuous and differentiable discriminant functions are designed to extract the spatial correlation of signal patterns at training locations. The advantages of the DMS-based methodology are threefold. First, with through slope of discriminant functions, the exhaustive pattern-matching process can be replaced by an optimization search process, which could be done by a few quick jumps. Second, the continuity of the discriminant functions helps predict signal patterns at untrained locations so as to achieve finer grained localization. Third, the large amount of training data can be compressed into some functions that can be represented by a few parameters. Therefore, the storage space required for localization can be significantly reduced. To realize this methodology, two algorithms, namely, Newton-PL and Newton-INT, are designed based on the concept of gradient descent search. Simulation and experiment studies show that our algorithms do provide finer grained localization and incur less computation cost.Madurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

MANET communications represent a diversification in communication technology necessary to solve the stringent end-to-end requirements of QoS-based communication networks. Of the many challenges in this complex distributed system, the problem of routing based on a predefined set of customer preferences, critical to guaranteeing quality-of-service, is the focus of this research. Specifically, this paper modifies a cluster-based QoS routing algorithm for mobile ad hoc networks with the aim of providing fault tolerance, which is a critical feature in providing QoS in the link failure-prone environment of mobile networks. Performance of this new fault-tolerant cluster-based QoS wireless algorithm is evaluated according to failure recovery time, dropped packets, throughput, and sustained flow bandwidth via simulations involving node failure scenarios along QoS paths.23 Distributed Multi-Interface Multichannel Random Access Using Convex Optimization The aggregate capacity of wireless ad hoc networks can be increased substantially if each node is equipped with multiple network interface cards (NICs) and each NIC operates on a distinct frequency channel. Most of the recently proposed channel assignment algorithms are based on combinatorial techniques. Combinatorial channel assignment schemes may sometimes result in computationally complicated algorithms as well as inefficient utilization of the available frequency spectrum. In this paper, we analytically model channel and interface assignment problems as tractable continuous optimization problems within the framework of network utility maximization (NUM). In particular, the link data rate models for both single-channel reception and multichannel reception scenarios are derived. The assignment of both nonoverlapped and partially overlapped channels is also considered. We then propose two distributed multi-interface multichannel random access (DMMRA) algorithms for single-channel reception and multichannel reception scenarios. The DMMRA algorithms are fast, distributed, and easy to implement. Each algorithm solves the formulated NUM problem for each scenario. DMMRA requires each node to only iteratively solve a local, myopic, and convex optimization problem. Convergence and optimality properties of our algorithms are studied analytically. Simulation results show that our proposed algorithms significantly outperform utility-optimal combinatorial channel assignment algorithms in terms of both achieved network utility and throughput.24 Dynamic Conflict-Free Transmission Scheduling for Sensor Network Queries With the emergence of high data rate sensor network applications, there is an increasing demand for high-performance query services. To meet this challenge, we propose Dynamic Conflict-free Query Scheduling (DCQS), a novel scheduling technique for queries in wireless sensor networks. In contrast to earlier TDMA protocols designed for general-purpose workloads, DCQS is specifically designed for query services in wireless sensor networks. DCQS has several unique features. First, it optimizes the query performance through conflict-free transmission scheduling based on the temporal properties of queries in wireless sensor networks. Second, it can adapt to workload changes without explicitly reconstructing the transmission schedule. Furthermore, DCQS also provides predictable performance in terms of the maximum achievable query rate. We provide an analytical capacity bound for DCQS that enables DCQS to handle overloadMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

NS2 simulations demonstrate that DCQS significantly outperforms a representative TDMA protocol (DRAND) and 802.11b in terms of query latency and throughput.25 Dynamic Time Slot Partitioning for Multimedia Transmission in Two-Hop Cellular Networks In recent years, there has been an exponential increase in the number of mobile phone users. In addition, a significant growth in the demand for high-rate multimedia services over wireless networks, such as video conferencing, multimedia streaming, etc., was noted. Different solutions were proposed to support high-quality high data rate delivery to mobile users, including resource allocation techniques for packet-radio-based next generation cellular networks. In this paper, an efficient time slot allocation method—Dynamic Time Slot Partitioning (DTSP) algorithm based on statistical multiplexing is proposed for a two-hop cellular architecture. In DTSP, the available bandwidth resources are increased by partitioning each time slot into several minislots wherein different numbers of minislots are allocated to different users. The DTSP algorithm is based on asynchronous time-division multiplexing, wherein users with variable number of packets in their buffers can transmit data sequentially without any loss in the overall available resources. The key advantage of DTSP is that it can flexibly adapt to different quality of service requirements, especially when combined with adaptive modulation. It has been observed that the system capacity achieved by the DTSP algorithm in the downlink mode using adaptive modulation is up to 41 percent higher than when existing solutions are employed. In addition, DTSP results in significantly lower time for data transmission than the state-of-the-art region and time partitioning techniques.26 Effective Scheduling in Infrastructure-Based Cognitive Radio Networks In this paper, we investigate a joint scheduling and power control for an infrastructure-based cognitive radio network (CRN) in coexistence with a cellular primary radio network (PRN). The PRN uses a set of licensed nonoverlapping orthogonal frequency channels for transmission. This set of channels is also accessed in an opportunistic manner by a set of cognitive radio base stations (CR-BSs) to support secondary users (SUs). The problem is formulated to maximize the spectrum utilization of SUs without causing excessive interference to active primary users (PUs) of the PRN. In addition, all the serviced SUs must meet a certain Quality of Service (QoS), such as satisfying a predefined signal to interference noise ratio (SINR). A centralized solution for joint scheduling and power control is derived to make the global accessing decision for all unserved SUs. With the assumption that the knowledge of all subscribers is available, a coordinator of the CRN can use the joint scheduling and power control algorithm to maximize the spectrum utilization of serviced SUs by solving a mixed- integer linear programming (MILP) with an NP-hard complexity. To avoid the NP-hard complexity, we propose a suboptimal heuristic greedy algorithm that can be obtained at a much lower complexity based on the coloring interference graph among unserved SUs effected by serviced SUs and active PUs. Its superior performance over the existing algorithms is demonstrated through simulations.27 Efficient Data Collection in Wireless Sensor Networks with Path-Constrained Mobile Sinks Recent work has shown that sink mobility along a constrained path can improve the energy efficiency in wireless sensor networks. However, due to the path constraint, a mobile sink with constant speed has limited communication time to collect data from the sensor nodes deployed randomly. This poses significant challenges in jointly improvingMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

To address this issue, we propose a novel data collection scheme, called the Maximum Amount Shortest Path (MASP), that increases network throughput as well as conserves energy by optimizing the assignment of sensor nodes. MASP is formulated as an integer linear programming problem and then solved with the help of a genetic algorithm. A two-phase communication protocol based on zone partition is designed to implement the MASP scheme. We also develop a practical distributed approximate algorithm to solve the MASP problem. In addition, the impact of different overlapping time partition methods is studied. The proposed algorithms and protocols are validated through simulation experiments using OMNET++.28 Efficient Location Training Protocols for Heterogeneous Sensor and Actor Networks In this work, we consider a large-scale geographic area populated by tiny sensors and some more powerful devices called actors, authorized to organize the sensors in their vicinity into short-lived, actor-centric sensor networks. The tiny sensors run on miniature nonrechargeable batteries, are anonymous, and are unaware of their location. The sensors differ in their ability to dynamically alter their sleep times. Indeed, the periodic sensors have sleep periods of predefined lengths, established at fabrication time; by contrast, the free sensors can dynamically alter their sleep periods, under program control. The main contribution of this work is to propose an energy-efficient location training protocol for heterogeneous actor-centric sensor networks where the sensors acquire coarse-grain location awareness with respect to the actor in their vicinity. Our theoretical analysis, confirmed by experimental evaluation, shows that the proposed protocol outperforms the best previously known location training protocols in terms of the number of sleep/awake transitions, overall sensor awake time, and energy consumption.29 Endpoint-Based Call Admission Control and Resource Management for VoWLAN This paper examines two specific aspects of resource management in Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs)—Call Admission Control (CAC) and handling of Link Adaptation (LA) events. A self-consistent system to manage these for Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) over an IEEE 802.11 WLAN is presented. The proposed CAC scheme is based on the Endpoint Admission Control (EAC) paradigm, where the endpoints probe the network to determine if the call can be supported with acceptable Quality of Service (QoS). The proposed scheme was evaluated on an experimental testbed and test results show that correct admission decisions were made under various network configurations. The scheme also determines if LA has resulted in the system becoming congested and, if so, the voice codec of the handset which has undergone LA is adapted so as to restore the system to its earlier state, thereby alleviating the congestion. The proposed scheme was evaluated on the experimental testbed and test results show that the codec adaptation scheme was very effective at overcoming the effects of LA for VoIP over WLAN.Madurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

In XCC, routers provide multibit feedback to sources, which, in turn, adapt throughput more accurately to the path bandwidth with potentially faster convergence times. Such systems, however, require precise knowledge of link capacity for efficient operation. In the presence of variable-capacity media, e.g., 802.11, such information is not entirely obvious or may be difficult to extract. We explore three possible algorithms for XCC which retain efficiency under such conditions by inferring available bandwidth from queue dynamics and test them through simulations with two relevant XCC protocols: XCP and RCP. Additionally, preliminary results from an experimental implementation based on XCP are presented. Finally, we compare our proposals with TCP and show how such algorithms outperform it in terms of efficiency, stability, queuing delay, and flowrate fairness.32 Fast Detection of Mobile Replica Node Attacks in Wireless Sensor Networks Using Sequential Hypothesis Testing Jun- Won Due to the unattended nature of wireless sensor networks, an adversary can capture and compromise sensor nodes, make replicas of them, and then mount a variety of attacks with these replicas. These replica node attacks are dangerous because they allow the attacker to leverage the compromise of a few nodes to exert control over much of the network. Several replica node detection schemes have been proposed in the literature to defend against such attacks in static sensor networks. However, these schemes rely on fixed sensor locations and hence do not work in mobile sensor networks, where sensors are expected to move. In this work, we propose a fast and effective mobile replica node detection scheme using the Sequential Probability Ratio Test. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work to tackle the problem of replica node attacks in mobile sensor networks. We show analytically and through simulation experiments that our scheme detects mobile replicas in an efficient and robust manner at the cost of reasonable overheads.Madurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

Our goal is to encapsulate and broadcast video streams encoded in scalable manner to enable heterogeneous mobile devices to render the most appropriate video substreams while achieving high energy saving and low channel switching delay. The appropriate streams depend on the device capability and the target energy consumption level. We propose two new broadcast schemes, which are flexible in the sense that they allow diverse bit rates among layers of the same stream. Such flexibility enables videos to be optimally encoded in terms of coding efficiency, and allows the coded video streams to be better matched with the capability of mobile devices. We analyze the performance of the proposed broadcast schemes. In addition, we have implemented the proposed schemes in a real mobile TV testbed to show their practicality and efficiency. Our extensive experiments confirm that the proposed schemes enable energy saving differentiation: between 75 and 95 percent were observed. Moreover, one of the schemes achieves low channel switching delays: 200 msec is possible with typical system parameters.34 Integration Gain of Heterogeneous WiFi/WiMAX Networks We study the integrated WiFi/WiMAX networks, where users are equipped with dual-radio interfaces that can connect to either a WiFi or a WiMAX network. Previous research on integrated heterogeneous networks (e.g., WiFi/cellular) usually considers one network as the main and the other as the auxiliary. The performance of the integrated network is compared with the “main” network. The gain is apparently due to the additional resources from the auxiliary network. In this study, we are interested in integration gain that comes from the better utilization of the resource rather than the increase of the resource. The heterogeneity of the two networks is the fundamental reason for the integration gain. To quantify it, we design a generic framework that supports different performance objectives. We focus on the max-min throughput fairness in this work and also briefly cover the proportional fairness metric. We first prove that it is NP-hard to achieve integral max- min throughput fairness, then propose a heuristic algorithm, which provides twoapproximation to the optimal fractional solution. Simulation results demonstrate significant integration gain from three sources, namely, spatial multiplexing, multinetwork diversity, and multiuser diversity. For the proportional fairness metric, we derive the formulation and propose a heuristic algorithm, which shows satisfactory performance when compared with the optimal solution.35 Interference-Aware Routing in Wireless Multihop Networks Interference is an inherent characteristic of wireless (multihop) communications. Adding interference-awareness to important control functions, e.g., routing, could significantly enhance the overall network performance. Despite some initial efforts, it is not yet clearly understood how to best capture the effects of interference in routing protocol design. Most existing proposals aim at inferring its effect by actively probing the link. However, active probe measurements impose an overhead and may often misrepresent the link quality due to their interaction with other networking functions. Therefore, in this paper we follow a different approach and: 1) propose a simple yet accurate analytical model for the effect of interference on data reception probability, based only on passive measurementsMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

To validate our proposal, we have performed experiments in a real testbed, setup in our indoor office environment. We show that the analytical predictions of our interference model exhibit good match with both experimental results as well as more complicated analytical models proposed in related literature. Furthermore, we demonstrate that a simple probeless routing protocol based on our model performs at least as good as well-known probe-based routing protocols in a large set of experiments including both intraflow and interflow.36 Localization of Mobile Nodes in Wireless Networks with Correlated in Time Measurement Noise Wireless sensor networks are an inherent part of decision making, object tracking, and location awareness systems. This work is focused on simultaneous localization of mobile nodes based on received signal strength indicators (RSSIs) with correlated in time measurement noises. Two approaches to deal with the correlated measurement noises are proposed in the framework of auxiliary particle filtering: with a noise augmented state vector and the second approach implements noise decorrelation. The performance of the two proposed multimodel auxiliary particle filters (MM AUX-PFs) is validated over simulated and real RSSIs and high localization accuracy is demonstrated.37 MAC Layer Throughput Estimation in Impulse-Radio UWB Networks The inherent channel characteristics of impulse-based UWB networks affect the MAC layer performance significantly. Most previous studies on evaluating MAC protocols are based on prolonged simulations and do not account for the multiple access interference due to multipath delay spread. In this work, we develop CTU, an analytical framework for Capturing the Throughput dependencies in UWB networks, while taking into account the PHY layer effects. The key attributes of CTU are: 1) It is modular; it can be easily modified to provide a basis for evaluating a wide range of MAC protocols for impulse-based UWB networks. The only requirements are that the MAC protocol under study be based on time-hopping and the modulation scheme be pulse position modulation; these are common design decisions in UWB networks. 2) It considers the channel characteristics in addition to MAC layer effects; CTU correlates probabilistically the multipath delay profile of the channel with the packet error rate. We employ CTU to evaluate the performance of different generic medium access procedure. We compare the results with those from extensive simulations and show the high accuracy of CTU. We use CTU to assess the impact of various system parameters on the MAC layer performance; we make several interesting observations that are discussed in depth.38 MAP: Multiauctioneer Progressive Auction for Dynamic Spectrum Access Cognitive radio (CR) is a promising paradigm to achieve efficient utilization of the limited spectrum resource by allowing the unlicensed users to access the licensed spectrum, and dynamic spectrum access (DSA) is one of the fundamental functions of CR networks. Market-driven spectrum auction has been recognized as an effective way to achieve DSA. In spectrum auction, the primary spectrum owners (POs) act as auctioneers who are willing to sell idle spectrum bands for additional revenue, and the secondary users (SUs) act as bidders who are willing to buy spectrum bands from POs for their services. However, conventional spectrum auction designs are restricted within the scenario of single auctioneer.

We propose MAP, a Multiauctioneer Progressive auction mechanism, in which each auctioneer systematically raises the trading price and each bidder subsequently chooses one auctioneer for bidding. The equilibrium is defined as the state that no auctioneer and bidder would like to change his decision. We show analytically that MAP converges to the equilibrium with maximum spectrum utilization of the whole system. We further analyze the incentive for POs and SUs joining the auction and accepting the auction result. Simulation results show that MAP well converges to the equilibrium, and the spectrum utilization is arbitrary closed to the global optimal solution according to the length of step.39 Minimum Bandwidth Reservations for Periodic Streams in Wireless Real-Time Systems Reservation-based (as opposed to contention-based) channel access in WLANs provides predictable and deterministic transmission and is therefore able to provide timeliness guarantees for wireless and embedded real- time applications. Also, reservation-based channel access is energy-efficient since a wireless adaptor is powered on only during its exclusive channel access times. While scheduling for Quality of Service at the central authority (e.g., base station) has received extensive attention, the problem of determining the actual resource requirements of an individual node in a wireless real-time system has been largely ignored. This work aims at finding the minimum channel bandwidth reservation that meets the real-time constraints of all periodic streams of a given node. Keeping the bandwidth reservation of a node to a minimum leads to reduced energy and resource requirements and leaves more bandwidth for future reservations by other nodes. To obtain a solution to the minimum bandwidth reservation problem, we transform it to a generic uniprocessor task schedulability problem, which is then addressed using a generic algorithm. This algorithm works for a subclass of priority-driven packet scheduling policies, including three common ones: fixed-priority, EDF, and FIFO. Moreover, we then specialize the generic algorithm to these three policies according to their specific characteristics. Their computation complexities and bandwidth reservation efficiencies are evaluated and guidelines for choosing scheduling policies and stream parameters are presented.40 Mobile Sampling of Sensor Field Data Using Controlled Broadcast Mobile objects can be used to gather samples from a sensor field. Civilian vehicles or even human beings equipped with proper wireless communication devices can be used as mobile sinks that retrieve sensor-data from sampling points within a large sensor field. A key challenge is how to gather the sensor data in a manner that is energy efficient with respect to the sensor nodes that serve as sources of the sensor data. In this paper, an algorithmic technique called Band-based Directional Broadcast is introduced to control the direction of broadcasts that originate from sensor nodes. The goal is to direct each broadcast of sensor data toward the mobile sink, thus reducing costly forwarding of sensor data packets. The technique is studied by simulations that consider energy consumption and data deliverability.41 Mobility Tracking Based on Autoregressive Models We propose an integrated scheme for tracking the mobility of a user based on autoregressive models that accurately capture the characteristics of realistic user movements in wireless networks.

Our simulation results validate the accuracy of the proposed tracking scheme even when only a small number of data samples is available for initial training.42 Modeling and Improving TCP Performance over Cellular Link with Variable Bandwidth To facilitate a viable evolution of cellular networks toward extensive packet data traffic, the High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) technology is introduced. The various link adaptation techniques employed by HSDPA augment the bandwidth variation, which is identified as one of the most important factors resulting in the deterioration of TCP performance. In this paper, we firstly build an analytical model of TCP throughput to explain why the bandwidth variation degrades the TCP performance. Subsequently, a split-connection Window Adaptation TCP Proxy is proposed to improve the TCP throughput in HSDPA networks. To use the precious cellular link resources sufficiently, the length of the queue in Node-B is intentionally kept around the reference value through adaptively adjusting the sending window size of TCP proxy based on the dynamic values of varying bandwidth. Since both the disturbance caused by bandwidth variation and the feedback delay are prone to lead an unstable queue system, the robust sliding mode variable structure control theory is employed to design the proper control law to weaken the impact of noise and delay on the stability of the queue system in Node-B. The theoretical analysis and the enhanced scheme are verified through simulation experiments. The simulation results show that our TCP proxy is able to resist against bandwidth oscillation and improve the cellular link utilization.43 Multicast Throughput for Hybrid Wireless Networks under Gaussian Channel Model We study the multicast capacity for hybrid wireless networks consisting of ordinary ad hoc nodes and base stations under Gaussian Channel model, which generalizes both the unicast and broadcast capacities for hybrid wireless networks. Assume that all ordinary ad hoc nodes transmit at a constant power P, and the power decays along the path, with attenuation exponent alpha > 2. The data rate of a transmission is determined by the Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) at the receiver as Blog(1+ SINR). The ordinary ad hoc nodes are placed in the square region AðaÞ of area a according to a Poisson point process of intensity n=a. Then, m additional base stations (BSs) acting as the relaying communication gateways are placed regularly in the region AðaÞ, and are connected by a high- bandwidth wired network. Let a ¼ n and a ¼ 1, we construct the hybrid extended network (HEN) and hybrid dense network (HDN), respectively. We choose randomly and independently ns ordinary ad hoc nodes to be the sources of multicast sessions. We assume that each multicast session has nd randomly chosen terminals. Three broad categories of multicast strategies are proposed. The first one is the hybrid strategy, i.e., the multihop scheme with BS-supported, which further consists of two types of strategies called connectivity strategy and percolation strategy, respectively. The second one is the ordinary ad hoc strategy, i.e., the multihop scheme without any BS-supported. The third one is the classical BS-based strategy under which any communication between two ordinary ad hoc nodes is relayed by some specific BSs. According to the different scenarios in terms of m, n, and nd, we select the optimal scheme from the three categories of strategies, and derive the achievable multicast throughput based on the optimal decision.Madurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

However, the available spectrum changes dynamically with the primary user (PU) activity, necessitating frequent PU sensing coordination and exchanging network topology information in a multihop CR ad hoc network. To facilitate these tasks, an always-on, out-of-band common control channel (CCC) design is proposed that uses noncontiguous OFDM subcarriers placed within the guard bands separating the channels of the licensed spectrum. First, the task of choosing the OFDM-specific parameters, including the number, power, and bandwidth of the subcarriers is formulated as a feasibility problem to ensure that the CCC does not adversely interfere with the PU operation. Second, for unicast messaging between a given pair of users, a subset of the guard bands may be chosen, which allows an additional measure of protection for the adjacent PU spectrum. For this, the multiarm bandit algorithm is used that allows the guard band selection to evolve over time based on the observed interference from the PU. Results reveal that our proposed CCC ensures connectivity and improved PU protection with a limited trade-off in data rate when compared to frequencyhopping and cluster-based CCC schemes.45 On the Design of Opportunistic MAC Protocols for Multihop Wireless Networks with Beamforming Antennas Beamforming antennas promise a significant increase in the spatial reuse of the wireless medium when deployed in multihop wireless networks. However, existing directional Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols with the default binary exponential backoff mechanism are not capable of fully exploiting the offered potential. In this paper, we discuss various issues involved in the design of MAC protocols specific for beamforming antennas. Based on our discussion, we argue that the traditional binary exponential backoff mechanism limits the possible spatial reuse and aggravates some beamforming-related problems such as deafness and headof- line blocking. To grasp the transmission opportunities offered by beamforming antennas, we design an Opportunistic Directional MAC (OPDMAC) protocol for multihop wireless networks. The OPDMAC protocol employs a novel backoff mechanism in which the node is not forced to undergo idle backoff after a transmission failure but can rather take the opportunity of transmitting other outstanding packets in other directions. This mechanism minimizes the idle waiting time and increases the channel utilization significantly and thereby enables OPDMAC to enhance the spatial reusability of the wireless medium and reduce the impact of the deafness problem without additional overhead. Through extensive simulations, we demonstrate that OPDMAC enhances the performance in terms of throughput, delay, packet delivery ratio, and fairness. To further improve its performance, we discuss and evaluate the benefits of carefully choosing some protocol parameters instead of using the default values commonly used by other directional MAC protocols.Madurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

This paper presents quantitative evaluations of false positives and their impact on monitoringbased intrusion detection for ad hoc networks. Experimental results show that, even for a simple three-node configuration, an actual ad hoc network suffers from high false positives; these results are validated by Markov and probabilistic models. However, this false positive problem cannot be observed by simulating the same network using popular ad hoc network simulators, such as ns-2, OPNET or Glomosim. To remedy this, a probabilistic noise generator model is implemented in the Glomosim simulator. With this revised noise model, the simulated network exhibits the aggregate false positive behavior similar to that of the experimental testbed. Simulations of larger (50-node) ad hoc networks indicate that monitoring-based intrusion detection has very high false positives. These false positives can reduce the network performance or increase the overhead. In a simple monitoring-based system where no secondary and more accurate methods are used, the false positives impact the network performance in two ways: reduced throughput in normal networks without attackers and inability to mitigate the effect of attacks in networks with attackers.47 On the Information Flow Required for Tracking Control in Networks of Mobile Sensing Agents We design controllers that permit mobile agents with distributed or networked sensing capabilities to track (follow) desired trajectories, identify what trajectory information must be distributed to each agent for tracking, and develop methods to minimize the communication needed for the trajectory information distribution.48 Optimal and Efficient Graph-Based Resource Allocation Algorithms for Multiservice Frame-Based OFDMA Networks This paper addresses the resource allocation problem in Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA)-based wireless networks. The resource allocation problem is posed as an optimization problem with individual user constraints. This formulation provides a special structure that lends to efficient solution of the problem. We develop an optimal algorithm based on standard graph theory and Lagrangian relaxation. Based on the special structure of the problem, the proposed resource allocation algorithm attains the optimal solution at a much lower complexity compared to general- purpose optimization algorithms used by previous OFDMA resource allocation approaches. Moreover, the resource allocation problem solved by the proposed algorithm supports practical features such as discrete modulation set and multiple OFDM symbols per resource allocation decision. Furthermore, by assuming even power allocation across the OFDM subchannels, a suboptimal resource allocation algorithm with lower complexity is developed. The proposed algorithms enable the system designer to control the tradeoffs among system performance, system complexity, and the quality of service (QoS) experienced by the users. Extensive simulations are conducted to evaluate the performance and complexity of the proposed algorithms under different system operating conditions..49 Optimal Stochastic Location Updates in Mobile Ad Hoc NetworksMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

The trade off between the operation costs in location updates and the performance losses of the target application due to location inaccuracies (i.e., application costs) imposes a crucial question for nodes to decide the optimal strategy to update their location information, where the optimality is in the sense of minimizing the overall costs. In this paper, we develop a stochastic sequential decision framework to analyze this problem. Under a Markovian mobility model, the location update decision problem is modeled as a Markov Decision Process (MDP). We first investigate the monotonicity properties of optimal NU and LSU operations with respect to location inaccuracies under a general cost setting. Then, given a separable cost structure, we show that the location update decisions of NU and LSU can be independently carried out without loss of optimality, i.e., a separation property. From the discovered separation property of the problem structure and the monotonicity properties of optimal actions, we find that 1) there always exists a simple optimal threshold-based update rule for LSU operations; 2) for NU operations, an optimal threshold-based update rule exists in a low-mobility scenario. In the case that no a priori knowledge of the MDP model is available, we also introduce a practical model- free learning approach to find a near-optimal solution for the problem.50 Performance of Cognitive Radio-Based Wireless Mesh Networks Cognitive radio presents a new approach to wireless spectrum utilization and management. In this work, the potential performance improvement gained by applying cognitive radio to wireless mesh networks is investigated. Specifically, the potential benefits in terms of QoS provided to users and the efficiency of resource utilization are quantified in a system consisting of a collection of one or more service provider wireless networks. To achieve this, we formulate the problem mathematically using integer linear programming. It is shown that the cognitive radio abilities provide an advantage over the classical network, either by improving QoS through increasing the probability of accepting connection requests, or by reducing the resources needed to fulfill the QoS requirements of users. This advantage is gained without impacting the service of primary clients. More importantly, we show that virtual wireless networks can be created, utilizing only the residual wasted bandwidth of the primary service providers. These virtual networks are able to support large volumes of users, while still ensuring that QoS reliability requirements, such as acceptance probability guarantees, are achieved.51 Processing Continuous Range Queries with Spatiotemporal Tolerance Continuous queries are often employed to monitor the locations of mobile objects (MOs), which are determined by sensing devices like GPS receivers. In this paper, we tackle two challenges in processing continuous range queries (CRQs): coping with data uncertainty inherently associated with location data, and reducing the energy consumption of battery-powered MOs. We propose the concept of spatiotemporal tolerance for CRQ to relax a query’s accuracy requirements in terms of a maximal acceptable error. Unlike previous works, our definition considers tolerance in both the spatial and temporal dimensions, which offers applications more flexibility in specifying their individual accuracy requirements. As we will show, these tolerance bounds can provide well-defined query semantics in spite of different sources of data uncertainty. In addition, we present efficient algorithms that carefully control when an MO should sense or report a location, while satisfying these tolerances. Thereby, we particularly reduce the number of position sensing operations substantially, which constitute a considerable source of energy consumption.

A QoS- aware routing (QAR) protocol and an admission control (AC) protocol are two of the most important components of a system attempting to provide QoS guarantees in the face of the above mentioned difficulties faced. Many QAR and AC- based solutions have been proposed, but such network layer solutions are often designed and studied with idealized lower layer models in mind. This means that existing solutions are not designed for dealing with practical phenomena such as shadow fading and the link quality-dependent fluctuation of link transmission rates. This paper proposes and evaluates new solutions for improving the performance of QAR and AC protocols in the face of mobility, shadowing, and varying link SINR. It is found that proactively maintaining backup routes for active sessions, adapting transmission rates, and routing around temporarily low-SINR links can noticeably improve the reliability of assured throughput services.53 Rendezvous for Cognitive Radios Cognitive radios have been touted as a solution to communicating in a Dynamic Spectrum Access environment. This paper examines how cognitive radios initially find one another among the expanse of ever-changing open spectrum, termed the rendezvous problem. Specifically, it addresses the problem of rendezvous under varying levels of system capabilities, spectrum policies, and environmental conditions. The focus is on rendezvous when there are are no control channels or centralized controllers, which we term the blind rendezvous problem. Under these conditions, a sequence-based and modular clock blind rendezvous algorithms are proposed, and it is shown that the performance of these algorithms compares favorably to that of a random blind rendezvous algorithm. Specifically, the sequence- based algorithm provides a bounded Time To Rendezvous (TTR) and the ability to prioritize channels where rendezvous is more likely to occur; the modular clock algorithm reduces the expected TTR, requires little precoordination among radios attempting to rendezvous, and is robust to radios sensing different sets of available channels.54 Scalable Localization with Mobility Prediction for Underwater Sensor Networks Due to harsh aqueous environments, non-negligible node mobility and large network scale, localization for large-scale mobile underwater sensor networks is very challenging. In this paper, by utilizing the predictable mobility patterns of underwater objects, we propose a scheme, called Scalable Localization scheme with Mobility Prediction (SLMP), for underwater sensor networks. In SLMP, localization is performed in a hierarchical way, and the whole localization process is divided into two parts: anchor node localization and ordinary node localization. During the localization process, every node predicts its future mobility pattern according to its past known location information, and it can estimate its future location based on the predicted mobility pattern. Anchor nodes with known locations in the network will control the localization process in order to balance the trade-off between localization accuracy, localization coverage, and communication cost.

Our paper introduces and demonstrates the efficacy of a new PCO protocol implementation that, by disabling all collision resolution mechanisms for a suitable portion of the node operations, lets the rapid establishment of a common clock and its maintenance. The key idea is to allow signals to be superimposed in time, a feature that is absent in previous implementations, because it is prevented by traditional medium access schemes. We map the PCO protocol into an event-driven asynchronous coloring algorithm, based on the local exchange of information to explain its convergence properties. The event-based description of the PCO protocol sets the stage for our experimental comparison with a competing decentralized network synchronization approach, namely, the Reference Broadcast Protocol (RBS). For comparison, we combined RBS with an asynchronous average consensus protocol, running exactly on the same MicaZ platforms. The experimental results showcase the better scalability of the PCO scheme compared to the competing method based on RBS, proving that the PCO primitive is a reasonable option to consider for wireless sensor network applications.56 Secret Key Establishment Using Temporally and Spatially Correlated Wireless Channel Coefficients When implementing data encryption and decryption in a symmetric cryptosystem, secure distribution of the secret key to legitimate nodes can be a challenge. In this paper, we consider establishing secret keys using the common wireless channel, with particular emphasis on the spatial and temporal correlations of the channel coefficients. Specifically, we investigate the influence of channel correlation on the bound of the key size generated from the common channel using a simple single-input single-output channel model, and we verify the existence of a sampling approach able to generate a key using the minimum possible sampling window. We also explore decorrelation of the channel coefficients in a multiple-input multiple-output channel, and we use a statistical independence test to demonstrate that this process cannot be separated into spatial and temporal decorrelation processes. The insights gained from these studies assist in the development of a practical key generation protocol based on a published channel coefficient quantization method and incorporating flexible quantization levels, transmission of the correlation eigenvector matrix, and LDPC coding to improve key agreement in an authenticated public channel. Finally, we present simulations with real channel measurements that solidify the fundamental conclusions.57 Secure High-Throughput Multicast Routing in Wireless Mesh Networks Recent work in multicast routing for wireless mesh networks has focused on metrics that estimate link quality to maximize throughput.

Mobile Virtual Private Network (VPN) has been developed to secure mobile user’s communication between untrusted external networks and the protected private internal network. However, the IETF’s mobile VPN does not address how to support NEMO. In addition, it is not suitable for real-time applications. In this paper, we propose architecture and protocols to support VPN in NEMO, which is called Secure NEMO (SeNEMO). The proposed SeNEMO, based on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), is specifically designed for real-time applications over VPN. It allows an entire network to move and still maintains session continuity. In addition to analyzing the security vulnerabilities, we also propose analytical models to evaluate the performance of the proposed SeNEMO. The analysis is validated by extensive simulations. The results show that the proposed SeNEMO can reduce signaling cost significantly.60 Security Games for Vehicular NetworksMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

This paper investigates security aspects of VANETs within a game-theoretic framework where defensive measures are optimized with respect to threats posed by malicious attackers. The formulations are chosen to be abstract on purpose in order to maximize applicability of the models and solutions to future systems. The security games proposed for vehicular networks take as an input centrality measures computed by mapping the centrality values of the car networks to the underlying road topology. The resulting strategies help locating most valuable or vulnerable points (e.g., against jamming) in vehicular networks. Thus, optimal deployment of traffic control and security infrastructure is investigated both in the static (e.g., fixed roadside units) and dynamic cases (e.g., mobile law enforcement units). Multiple types of security games are studied under varying information availability assumptions for the players, leading to fuzzy game and fictitious play formulations in addition to classical zero-sum games. The effectiveness of the security game solutions is evaluated numerically using realistic simulation data obtained from traffic engineering systems.61 See-Through Walls: Motion Tracking Using Variance-Based Radio Tomography Networks This paper presents a new method for imaging, localizing, and tracking motion behind walls in real time. The method takes advantage of the motion-induced variance of received signal strength measurements made in a wireless peer- to-peer network. Using a multipath channel model, we show that the signal strength on a wireless link is largely dependent on the power contained in multipath components that travel through space containing moving objects. A statistical model relating variance to spatial locations of movement is presented and used as a framework for the estimation of a motion image. From the motion image, the Kalman filter is applied to recursively track the coordinates of a moving target. Experimental results for a 34-node through-wall imaging and tracking system over a 780 square foot area are presented.62 Spatial-Temporal Coverage Optimization in Wireless Sensor Networks Mission-driven sensor networks usually have special lifetime requirements. However, the density of the sensors may not be large enough to satisfy the coverage requirement while meeting the lifetime constraint at the same time. Sometimes, coverage has to be traded for network lifetime. In this paper, we study how to schedule sensors to maximize their coverage during a specified network lifetime. Unlike sensor deployment, where the goal is to maximize the spatial coverage, our objective is to maximize the spatialtemporal coverage by scheduling sensors’ activity after they have been deployed. Since the optimization problem is NP-hard, we first present a centralized heuristic whose approximation factor is proved to be 1 2 , and then, propose a distributed parallel optimization protocol (POP). In POP, nodes optimize their schedules on their own but converge to local optimality without conflict with one another. Theoretical and simulation results show that POP substantially outperforms other schemes in terms of network lifetime, coverage redundancy, convergence time, and event detection probability.63 Stealthy Attacks in Wireless Ad Hoc Networks: Detection and CountermeasureMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

Stealthy packet dropping disrupts the packet from reaching the destination through malicious behavior at an intermediate node. However, the malicious node gives the impression to its neighbors that it performs the legitimate forwarding action. Moreover, a legitimate node comes under suspicion. A popular method for detecting attacks in wireless networks is behavior-based detection performed by normal network nodes through overhearing the communication in their neighborhood. This leverages the open broadcast nature of wireless communication. An instantiation of this technology is local monitoring. We show that local monitoring, and the wider class of overhearing-based detection, cannot detect stealthy packet dropping attacks. Additionally, it mistakenly detects and isolates a legitimate node. We present a protocol called SADEC that can detect and isolate stealthy packet dropping attack efficiently. SADEC presents two techniques that can be overlaid on baseline local monitoring: having the neighbors maintain additional information about the routing path, and adding some checking responsibility to each neighbor. Additionally, SADEC provides an innovative mechanism to better utilize local monitoring by considerably increasing the number of nodes in a neighborhood that can do monitoring. We show through analysis and simulation experiments that baseline local monitoring fails to efficiently mitigate most of the presented attacks while SADEC successfully mitigates them.64 Supporting Efficient and Scalable Multicasting over Mobile Ad Hoc Networks Group communications are important in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs). Multicast is an efficient method for implementing group communications. However, it is challenging to implement efficient and scalable multicast in MANET due to the difficulty in group membership management and multicast packet forwarding over a dynamic topology. We propose a novel Efficient Geographic Multicast Protocol (EGMP). EGMP uses a virtual-zone-based structure to implement scalable and efficient group membership management. A networkwide zone-based bidirectional tree is constructed to achieve more efficient membership management and multicast delivery. The position information is used to guide the zone structure building, multicast tree construction, and multicast packet forwarding, which efficiently reduces the overhead for route searching and tree structure maintenance. Several strategies have been proposed to further improve the efficiency of the protocol, for example, introducing the concept of zone depth for building an optimal tree structure and integrating the location search of group members with the hierarchical group membership management. Finally, we design a scheme to handle empty zone problem faced by most routing protocols using a zone structure. The scalability and the efficiency of EGMP are evaluated through simulations and quantitative analysis. Our simulation results demonstrate that EGMP has high packet delivery ratio, and low control overhead and multicast group joining delay under all test scenarios, and is scalable to both group size and network size. Compared to Scalable Position-Based Multicast (SPBM) [20], EGMP has significantly lower control overhead, data transmission overhead, and multicast group joining delay.65 Temporal Link Signature Measurements for Location Distinction We investigate location distinction, the ability of a receiver to determine when a transmitter has changed location, which has application for energy conservation in wireless sensor networks, for physical security of radio-tagged objects, and for wireless network security in detection of replication attacks.

This detection can be performed at a single RX or collaboratively by multiple receivers. We use 9,000 link signatures recorded at different locations and over time to demonstrate that our method significantly increases the detection rate and reduces the false alarm rate, in comparison to existing methods. We present a procedure to estimate the mutual information in link and link signature using the Edgeworth approximation. For the measured data set, we show that approximately 66 bits of link information is contained in each measured link signature.66 The HIDENETS Holistic Approach for the Analysis of Large Critical Mobile Systems Dealing with large, critical mobile systems and infrastructures where ongoing changes and resilience are paramount leads to very complex and difficult challenges for system evaluation. These challenges call for approaches that are able to integrate several evaluation methods for the quantitative assessment of QoS indicators which have been applied so far only to a limited extent. In this paper, we propose the holistic evaluation framework developed during the recently concluded FP6-HIDENETS project. It is based on abstraction and decomposition, and it exploits the interactions among different evaluation techniques including analytical, simulative, and experimental measurement approaches, to manage system complexity. The feasibility of the holistic approach for the analysis of a complete end-to-end scenario is first illustrated presenting two examples where mobility simulation is used in combination with stochastic analytical modeling, and then through the development and implementation of an evaluation workflow integrating several tools and model transformation steps.Madurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

This hierarchical communication framework combines mobile backbone nodes, which have superior mobility and communication capability, with regular nodes, which are constrained in mobility and communication capability. An important quantity of interest in mobile backbone networks is the number of regular nodes that can be successfully assigned to mobile backbone nodes at a given throughput level. This paper develops a novel technique for maximizing this quantity in networks of fixed regular nodes using mixed-integer linear programming (MILP). The MILP-based algorithm provides a significant reduction in computation time compared to existing methods and is computationally tractable for problems of moderate size. An approximation algorithm is also developed that is appropriate for largescale problems. This paper presents a theoretical performance guarantee for the approximation algorithm and also demonstrates its empirical performance. Finally, the mobile backbone network problem is extended to include mobile regular nodes, and exact and approximate solution algorithms are presented for this extension.68 Throughput-Lifetime Trade-Offs in Multihop Wireless Networks under an SINR-Based Interference Model High throughput and lifetime are both crucial design objectives for a number of multihop wireless network applications. As these two objectives are often in conflict with each other, it naturally becomes important to identify the trade-offs between them. Several works in the literature have focused on improving one or the other, but investigating the trade-off between throughput and lifetime has received relatively less attention. We study this trade-off between the network throughput and lifetime for the case of fixed wireless networks, where link transmissions are coordinated to be conflict-free. We employ a realistic interference model based on the Signal-to-Interference-and-Noise Ratio (SINR), which is usually considered statistically sufficient to infer success or failure of wireless transmissions. Our analytical and numerical results provide several insights into the interplay between throughput, lifetime, and transmit power. Specifically, we find that with a fixed throughput requirement, lifetime is not monotonic with power—neither very low power nor very high power result in the best lifetime. We also find that, for a fixed transmit power, relaxing the throughput requirement may result in a more than proportional improvement in the lifetime for small enough relaxation factors. Taken together, our insights call for a careful balancing of objectives when designing a wireless network for high throughput and lifetime.69 Towards Zero Retransmission Overhead: A Symbol Level Network Coding Approach to Retransmission We present SYNC, a physical layer transmission scheme that drastically reduces the cost of retransmission by introducing network coding concepts to symbol level operation. It piggybacks a new packet on each retransmitted packet, and exploits the previously received packet (possibly with error) at the receiver to recover both the retransmitted packet and the piggybacked packet. The piggybacking is achieved through higher modulation, but it does not decrease the decodability of the mixed packets owing to the previously received packet at the receiver, which can be analytically shown. SYNC works independently of other PHY level performance boosting schemes suchMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.

The proof-of-concept SYNC prototype has been implemented on a software defined radio (SDR) platform. The measurement data shows that under the same channel condition SYNC achieves 110 percent and 42 percent median throughput gain over traditional retransmission and SOFT, respectively. We also show that SYNC can be used proactively where the feedback as to the success of the previous transmission is not available, such as in broadcast.70 Traffic-Differentiation-Based Modular QoS Localized Routing for Wireless Sensor Networks A new localized quality of service (QoS) routing protocol for wireless sensor networks (WSN) is proposed in this paper. The proposed protocol targets WSN’s applications having different types of data traffic. It is based on differentiating QoS requirements according to the data type, which enables to provide several and customized QoS metrics for each traffic category. With each packet, the protocol attempts to fulfill the required data-related QoS metric(s) while considering power efficiency. It is modular and uses geographical information, which eliminates the need of propagating routing information. For link quality estimation, the protocol employs distributed, memory and computation efficient mechanisms. It uses a multisink single-path approach to increase reliability. To our knowledge, this protocol is the first that makes use of the diversity in data traffic while considering latency, reliability, residual energy in sensor nodes, and transmission power between nodes to cast QoS metrics as a multiobjective problem. The proposed protocol can operate with any medium access control (MAC) protocol, provided that it employs an acknowledgment (ACK) mechanism. Extensive simulation study with scenarios of 900 nodes shows the proposed protocol outperforms all comparable state-of-the-art QoS and localized routing protocols. Moreover, the protocol has been implemented on sensor motes and tested in a sensor network testbed.71 Type-Aware Error Control for Robust Interactive Video Services over Time-Varying Wireless Channels We propose a scheme called Type-Aware Error Control (TAEC) to provide robust interactive video services over timevarying wireless channels. Basically, TAEC explores the temporal dependence of video frames by pushing out the lower impact frames. In doing so, queuing delay is controlled and the important frame is retransmitted multiple times. We consider the application of the nonstationary stochastic control to further improve the wireless system throughput by exploring the multiuser diversity gain. The techniques involved in our proposed solution consist of constructing a Markov model, reducing the number of parameters estimated, and avoiding the state explosion problem. The provisioning of immediate bandwidth guarantee is another feature of TAEC, i.e., when exploring the multiuser diversity gain, the users share their reserved bandwidth only if the perceived video qualities are acceptable. As shown in the simulation, TAEC improves the perceived video quality in terms of luminance PSNR when compared to other schemesMadurai Trichy KollamElysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited Elysium Technologies Private Limited230, Church Road, Annanagar, 3rd Floor,SI Towers, Surya Complex,Vendor junction,Madurai , Tamilnadu – 625 020. 15 ,Melapudur , Trichy, kollam,Kerala – 691 010.Contact : 91452 4390702, 4392702, 4394702.
