Elasticity Detection

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This thesis develops a technique to detect whether the cross traffic competing with a flow is elastic or not, and shows how to use the elasticity detector to improve congestion control. If the cross traffic is elastic, i.e., made up of flows like Cubic or NewReno that increase their rate when they perceive available bandwidth, then one should use a scheme that competes well with such traffic. Such a scheme will not be able to control delays because the cross traffic will not cooperate to maintain low delays. If, however, cross traffic is inelastic, then one can use a suitable delay-controlled algorithm. Our elasticity detector uses an asymmetric sinusoidal pulse pattern and estimates elasticity by computing the frequency response (FFT) of the cross traffic estimate; we have measured its accuracy to be over 90%. We present the design and evaluation of Nimbus, a congestion control protocol that uses the elasticity detector to switch between delay-control and TCP-competitive modes. Our results on emulated and real-world paths show that Nimbus achieves throughput comparable to or better than Cubic always, but with delays that are much lower when cross traffic is inelastic. Unlike BBR, Nimbus is fair to Cubic, and has significantly lower delay by 40-50 ms. Compared to Copa, which also switches between a delay-controlling and a TCP-competitive mode, Nimbus is more robust at correctly detecting the nature of cross traffic, and unlike Copa, it is usable by a variety of delay-based and TCP-competitive methods.

Congestion Control For 6LoWPAN Wireless Sensor Networks  Toward The Internet Of Things
Author: Hayder Al-Kashoash
Publisher: Springer
Release Date: 2019-07-14
Pages: 159
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next big challenge for the research community. The IPv6 over low power wireless personal area network (6LoWPAN) protocol stack is considered a key part of the IoT. In 6LoWPAN networks, heavy network traffic causes congestion which significantly degrades network performance and impacts on quality of service aspects. This book presents a concrete, solid and logically ordered work on congestion control for 6LoWPAN networks as a step toward successful implementation of the IoT and supporting the IoT application requirements. The book addresses the congestion control issue in 6LoWPAN networks and presents a comprehensive literature review on congestion control for WSNs and 6LoWPAN networks. An extensive congestion analysis and assessment for 6LoWPAN networks is explored through analytical modelling, simulations and real experiments. A number of congestion control mechanisms and algorithms are proposed to mitigate and solve the congestion problem in 6LoWPAN networks by using and utilizing the non-cooperative game theory, multi-attribute decision making and network utility maximization framework. The proposed algorithms are aware of node priorities and application priorities to support the IoT application requirements and improve network performance in terms of throughput, end-to-end delay, energy consumption, number of lost packets and weighted fairness index.

Scheduling And Congestion Control For Wireless Internet
Author: Xin Wang
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Release Date: 2013-07-30
Pages: 53
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This brief proposes that the keys to internet cross-layer optimization are the development of non-standard implicit primal-dual solvers for underlying optimization problems, and design of jointly optimal network protocols as decomposition of such solvers. Relying on this novel design-space oriented approach, the author develops joint TCP congestion control and wireless-link scheduling schemes for wireless applications over Internet with centralized and distributed (multi-hop) wireless links. Different from the existing solutions, the proposed schemes can be asynchronously implemented without message passing among network nodes; thus they are readily deployed with current infrastructure. Moreover, global convergence/stability of the proposed schemes to optimal equilibrium is established using the Lyapunov method in the network fluid model. Simulation results are provided to evaluate the proposed schemes in practical networks.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Technology is taking us to a world where myriads of heavily networked devices interact with the physical world in multiple ways and at multiple scales, from the global Internet down to micro and nano devices. Many of these devices are highly mobile and must adapt to the surrounding environment in a totally unsupervised way. A fundamental research challenge is the design of robust decentralized computing systems that are capable of operating under changing environments and noisy input, and yet exhibit the desired behavior and response time, under constraints such as energy consumption, size, and processing power. Biological systems are able to handle many of these challenges with an elegance and efficiency still far beyond current human artifacts. The goal is to obtain methods on how to engineer technical systems, which have similar high stability and efficiency. With this book, we present a comprehensive overview of the most promising research directions in the area of bio-inspired computing. According to the broad spectrum addressed by the different book chapters, a rich variety of biological principles and their application to ICT systems are presented.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Mohammed Dahleh symposium brought together leading researchers in several areas of engineering and science. Many of the presentations focused on new emerging research areas of key significance. These new areas have in common that the dynamics and control theory and methods provide the appropriate framework for the understanding of the corresponding phenomena, while at the same time providing many of the tools necessary for their application to relevant technologies. Examples of these opportunities include the areas of systems biology, quantum feedback and control, fluid dynamics, and control applications in nanotechnology. This collected volume demonstrates the importance of these emerging areas in the current research agenda in science and technology and shows that a unique opportunity exists to drastically extend the scope and impact of dynamics and control methods far beyond their traditional areas of application in engineering.

Scalable Performance Signalling And Congestion Avoidance

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book answers a question which came about while the author was work ing on his diploma thesis [1]: would it be better to ask for the available band width instead of probing the network (like TCP does)? The diploma thesis was concerned with long-distance musical interaction ("NetMusic"). This is a very peculiar application: only a small amount of bandwidth may be necessary, but timely delivery and reduced loss are very important. Back then, these require ments led to a thorough investigation of existing telecommunication network mechanisms, but a satisfactory answer to the question could not be found. Simply put, the answer is "yes" - this work describes a mechanism which indeed enables an application to "ask for the available bandwidth". This obvi ously does not only concern online musical collaboration any longer. Among others, the mechanism yields the following advantages over existing alterna tives: • good throughput while maintaining close to zero loss and a small bottleneck queue length • usefulness for streaming media applications due to a very smooth rate • feasibility for satellite and wireless links • high scalability Additionally, a reusable framework for future applications that need to "ask the network" for certain performance data was developed.
