O mercado de dispositivos móveis apresenta uma grande heterogeneidade, sendo composto por smartphones, tablets, notebooks, netbooks, sensores e outros dispositivos com diferentes interfaces de comunicação sem fio. Este trabalho propõe uma alteração na estrutura do protocolo de roteamento Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) para que seja possível que esses dispositivos formem uma rede de comunicação. Essa alteração compreende a troca do modo de endereçamento IP para o endereçamento UUID. Essa alteração possibilitará a abstração dos meios de transmissão de dados, permitindo que diferentes dispositivos forme uma rede ad hoc. A comunicação entre dispositivos com diferentes tecnologias de transmissão de dados ocorre por meio de um dispositivo intermediário que possui ambas tecnologias de transmissão. A fim de analisar o comportamento do protocolo implementado são realizadas transmissões de dados em uma rede Wi-Fi operando em conjunto a uma rede emulada, que utiliza a estrutura FakeInterface. Essa rede emulada foi construída para possibilitar a execução de testes durante o desenvolvimento do trabalho e para confirmar o funcionamento do protocolo com múltiplas interfaces de rede.; The mobile market has a great heterogeneity...

This paper presents an Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS) developed on Android platform, which is open source and free. The developed application has as its main objective the free use of a Vehicle-to- Infrastructure (V2I) communication through the wireless network access points available in urban centers. In addition to providing the necessary information for an Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) to a central server, the application also receives the traffic data close to the vehicle. Once obtained this traffic information, the application displays them to the driver in a clear and efficient way, allowing the user to make decisions about his route in real time. The application was tested in a real environment and the results are presented in the article. In conclusion we present the benefits of this application. © 2012 IEEE.

Ao longo dos anos a Internet vem se tornando o principal meio de comunicação, onde muitas empresas e organizações a usam como base para os seus serviços, sendo que na maioria dos casos, estas empresas têm vários provedores de Internet (Modelo Multi- Provedor). Entretanto, a Internet atual não provê garantias de Qualidade de Serviço (Quality of Service - QoS). Para contornar esse problema, as empresas realizam um Acordo de Nível de Serviços (Service Level Agreement - SLA). Dentro desse contexto, esta dissertação de mestrado tem por objetivo desenvolver uma arquitetura para negociação de redes virtualizadas na Internet do Futuro utilizando técnicas de classificação de tráfegos para decidir, a partir dos dados coletados e das políticas de SLA, por qual ISP (Internet Service Provider) enviar os dados de acordo com a classe que os dados se enquadram. Espera-se assim atender aos requisitos de QoS de cada classe de tráfego, e diminuir os custos da empresa. Para realizar a validação da arquitetura proposta, foram efetuados experimentos baseados no protocolo OpenFlow e no emulador Mininet. Os resultados mostraram a eficiência do modelo desenvolvido, bem como a capacidade do mesmo de cumprir os objetivos definidos.; Over the years the Internet has become the primary means of communication...

Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rsfMRI) studies reveal a complex pattern of hyper- and hypo-connectivity in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Whereas rsfMRI findings tend to implicate the default mode network and subcortical areas in ASD, task fMRI and behavioral experiments point to social dysfunction as a unifying impairment of the disorder. Here, we leverage a novel Bayesian framework for whole-brain functional connectomics that aggregates population differences in connectivity to localize a subset of foci that are most affected by ASD. Our approach is entirely data-driven and does not impose spatial constraints on the region foci or dictate the trajectory of altered functional pathways. We apply our method to data from the openly shared Autism Brain Imaging Data Exchange (ABIDE) and pinpoint two intrinsic functional networks that distinguish ASD patients from typically developing controls. One network involves foci in the right temporal pole, left posterior cingulate cortex, left supramarginal gyrus, and left middle temporal gyrus. Automated decoding of this network by the Neurosynth meta-analytic database suggests high-level concepts of “language” and “comprehension” as the likely functional correlates. The second network consists of the left banks of the superior temporal sulcus...

The introduction of new digital services in the cellular networks, in transmission rates each time more raised, has stimulated recent research that comes studying ways to increase the data communication capacity and to reduce the delays in forward and reverse links of third generation WCDMA systems. These studies have resulted in new standards, known as 3.5G, published by 3GPP group, for the evolution of the third generation of the cellular systems. In this Masters Thesis the performance of a 3G WCDMA system, with diverse base stations and thousand of users is developed with assists of the planning tool NPSW. Moreover the performance of the 3.5G techniques hybrid automatic retransmission and multi-user detection with interference cancellation, candidates for enhance the WCDMA uplink capacity, is verified by means of computational simulations in Matlab of the increase of the data communication capacity and the reduction of the delays in the retransmission of packages of information; Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior; A introdução de novos serviços digitais nas redes celulares, em taxas de transmissão cada vez mais elevadas, tem impulsionado recentes pesquisas que vêm estudando maneiras de aumentar a capacidade de transmissão de dados e diminuir os atrasos nos enlaces direto e reverso de sistemas de terceira geração WCDMA.

We consider the problem of allocating resources in large wireless net- works in which multiple information flows must be accommodated. In particular, we seek a method for selecting schedules, routes, and power allocations for networks with terminals capable of user-cooperation at the signal level. To that end, we adopt a general information-theoretic communications model, in which the datarate of a wireless link is purely a function of transmission power, pathloss and interference. We begin by studying the case of resource allocation when only point-to-point links are available. The problem is NP-hard in this case, requiring an exponentially-complex exhaustive search to guarantee an optimal solution. This is prohibitively difficult for anything but the smallest of networks, leading us to approximate the problem using a decomposition approach. We construct the solution iteratively, developing polynomial-time algorithms to optimally allocate resources on a per-frame basis. We then update the network graph to reflect the resources consumed by the allocated frame. To manage this decomposition, we present a novel tool, termed the Network-Flow Interaction Chart. By representing the network in both space and time, our techniques trade off interference with throughput for each frame...

Within the European Union (EU) rail transport is currently the least integrated transport mode. This leads to delays, extra costs, and insufficient use of rail freight, especially for time-sensitive cargo. This also represents a missed opportunity in terms of moving towards a greener transport modal split within the EU. Rail freight, for which international activity represents 50 percent of total activities, will not be able to develop fully if border crossing rail operations do not deliver a better service for shippers and freight operators who require seamless trans-national transport as is possible by road, air and sea. Observing that the modal split of rail in the EU is stagnating at around 16 percent after years of decline, the European Commission proposed a regulation on a European rail network for competitive freight to be based on a number of rail freight corridors which entered into force on November 9, 2010. Regulation No 913/2010 makes it mandatory to create a European rail network for competitive freight based on international freight corridors...

Nearly all neuronal information processing and interneuronal communication in the brain involves action potentials, or spikes, which drive the short-term synaptic dynamics of neurons, but also their long-term dynamics, via synaptic plasticity. In many brain structures, action potential activity is considered to be sparse. This sparseness of activity has been exploited to reduce the computational cost of large-scale network simulations, through the development of event-driven simulation schemes. However, existing event-driven simulations schemes use extremely simplified neuronal models. Here, we implement and evaluate critically an event-driven algorithm (ED-LUT) that uses precalculated look-up tables to characterize synaptic and neuronal dynamics. This approach enables the use of more complex (and realistic) neuronal models or data in representing the neurons, while retaining the advantage of high-speed simulation. We demonstrate the method's application for neurons containing exponential synaptic conductances, thereby implementing shunting inhibition, a phenomenon that is critical to cellular computation. We also introduce an improved two-stage event-queue algorithm, which allows the simulations to scale efficiently to highly connected networks with arbitrary propagation delays. Finally...

Approved for public release; distribution unlimited.; Multimedia holds the promise of increased knowledge, creativity and productivity for virtually any application that can be imagined. The ability to present information in both an informative and entertaining way can lead to an enhanced quality of life for an increasingly larger segment of the world's population. However, information generated in a multimedia format presents special challenges for communication networks. This thesis is an attempt to understand the impact of multimedia computing as it relates to the transmission requirements to support large volume data exchange in a distributed computing environment. With a good understanding of these requirements one will be better equipped to evaluate the various physical transmission media and communication services available to meet the high transmission demands imposed by multimedia data exchange.; http://archive.org/details/telecommunicatio00gibb; Major, United States Marine Corps

In the last decade, 802.11 wireless devices data-rates have increased by three orders of magnitude, while communications experiencing low throughput are still largely present. Such throughput loss is a fundamental problem of wireless networking that is difficult to diagnose and amend. My research addresses two key causes of throughput loss: MAC layer protocol overhead and destructive link interference. First, I design WiFi-Nano reducing the channel access overhead by an order of magnitude leveraging an innovative speculative technique to transmit preambles. This new concept is based on simultaneous preamble transmission and detection via a self-interference cancellation design, and paves the way to the realization of the collision detection paradigm in wireless networks. Next, I propose 802.11ec (Encoded Control), the first 802.11-based protocol that eliminates the overhead of control packets. Instead, 802.11ec coordinates node transmissions via a set of predefined pseudo-noise codewords, resulting in the dramatic increase of throughput and communication robustness. Finally, I design MIDAS, a model-driven network management tool that alleviates low throughput wireless links identifying key corrective actions. MIDAS' key contribution is to reveal the fundamental role of node transmission coordination in characterizing destructive interference. I implement WiFi-Nano...

In this paper we have quantified the consistency of word usage in written texts represented by complex networks, where words were taken as nodes, by measuring the degree of preservation of the node neighborhood. Words were considered highly consistent if the authors used them with the same neighborhood. When ranked according to the consistency of use, the words obeyed a log-normal distribution, in contrast to Zipf's law that applies to the frequency of use. Consistency correlated positively with the familiarity and frequency of use, and negatively with ambiguity and age of acquisition. An inspection of some highly consistent words confirmed that they are used in very limited semantic contexts. A comparison of consistency indices for eight authors indicated that these indices may be employed for author recognition. Indeed, as expected, authors of novels could be distinguished from those who wrote scientific texts. Our analysis demonstrated the suitability of the consistency indices, which can now be applied in other tasks, such as emotion recognition.; FAPESP; FAPESP; CNPq (Brazil); CNPq (Brazil)

Este trabalho apresenta o desenvolvimento de um sistema sem fio de gestão de iluminação pública. Através do sistema desenvolvido, é possível controlar a potência de cada lâmpada de vapor de sódio de alta pressão dos postes de iluminação pública de determinada região. Desta maneira, nos horários em que as vias públicas se tornam menos utilizadas, é possível reduzir a potência e o brilho das lâmpadas e economizar energia elétrica. O sistema proposto utiliza o protocolo ZigBee para realizar a comunicação sem fio entre os módulos instalados nos postes. Este protocolo é baseado no protocolo IEEE 802.15.4 desenvolvido especialmente para redes de sensores sem fio e foca em baixo consumo de energia e transmissão da informação nó a nó da rede. Também é possível instalar sensores (luminosidade, umidade, etc.) nos módulos projetados e transformar cada unidade de iluminação pública em uma central de monitoramento de determinada região. Os resultados mostram que o sistema economiza energia, sendo possível reduzir a potência das lâmpadas em até 60% sem que o fator de potência do reator saia do valor mínimo estipulado na regulamentação (0,92). Os módulos desenvolvidos dão a opção ao operador de escolher a potência das lâmpadas em três valores distintos: 100%...

Este trabalho visa o estudo de redes ad hoc sem fio, em especial, os protocolos da subcamada MAC do modelo OSI. Neste tipo de rede sem controle centralizado, o acesso ao meio se torna uma parte crítica no processo de comunicação entre terminais. Assim sendo, a principal motivação deste trabalho é investigar como os protocolos da subcamada MAC podem afetar o desempenho da rede do ponto de vista das aplicações, em especial, tráfego VoIP e de dados. Para tal, foram feitas análises comparativas entre diversos protocolos, baseadas em resultados de simulações feitas no simulador de redes ns2. Tais resultados mostram que a maior parte das alternativas ao protocolo padrão IEEE 802.11 ainda precisam amadurecer para que possam tornarse comercialmente viáveis. Um protocolo, no entanto, se destaca dos demais em cenários de tráfego misto (voz e dados), apresentando melhoria de desempenho em relação ao IEEE 802.11: o IEEE 802.11e, variante do IEEE 802.11 com funções de suporte a QoS.; This work presented here is focused on studying ad hoc wireless networks, in particular, the MAC sublevel protocols from the OSI reference model. In these networks, the lack of a centralized control makes the medium access control a critical part in the communication process between network terminals. Thus...

Current pace of ocean resources exploitation have set the alarm for tighter environmental monitoring. Recent European legislation requires very accurate measurements of reference values for all types of ocean pollution, including acoustic noise. For near shore or offshore construction, platforms or infrastructures extensive measurements should be carried out before during and after exploitation activities have taken place. Environmental monitoring requires the deployment of sensors with specific requirements in terms of location, spatial coverage and data access rates. In some cases, monitoring includes accessing real time information regarding detecting intruders, their localization and, eventually, their interception. A key component of any environmental monitoring network is a high performance wireless communication network capable or interconnecting both fixed and moving sensing platforms for retrieving data and transmitting commands. The Underwater Acoustic Network initiative has recently demonstrated with an at sea experiment (Trondheim, May 2011) a full functioning 3 fixed node and 2 mobile node network for collecting data and performing surveillance tasks. A summary of the results are presented and issues discussed.; FCT; FP7

Routing in opportunistic networks is a very important and challenging problem because opportunistic network utilizes the contact opportunities of mobile nodes to achieve data communication.Social-based routing uses behavior of human beings which can form a community with the same interests to deliver the message.In this paper,we analyze the drawbacks of the original friendship-based algorithm, which defined social pressure metric to determine nodes'friendship community, but the metric couldn't distinguish the distribution characterization of the connection length which has an important impact on the selection of links with better quality. Further, the existing friendship-based routing doesn't consider the buffer management, which is vital for routing design in opportunistic networks. We propose a New Friendship-based routing with buffer management based on Copy Utility, named NFCU. NFCU algorithm, which not only considers the contact periods in constructing social pressure metric to solve the drawbacks of the original friendship-based routing scheme efficiently, but also considers the buffer management, that can efficiently determine which copy of the message should be deleted timely according to the copy utility function. Our proposed strategy can reduce the network overhead significantly...

Finding sparse cuts is an important tool in analyzing large-scale distributed networks such as the Internet and Peer-to-Peer networks, as well as large-scale graphs such as the web graph, online social communities, and VLSI circuits. In distributed communication networks, they are useful for topology maintenance and for designing better search and routing algorithms. In this paper, we focus on developing fast distributed algorithms for computing sparse cuts in networks. Given an undirected $n$-node network $G$ with conductance $\phi$, the goal is to find a cut set whose conductance is close to $\phi$. We present two distributed algorithms that find a cut set with sparsity $\tilde O(\sqrt{\phi})$ ($\tilde{O}$ hides $\polylog{n}$ factors). Both our algorithms work in the CONGEST distributed computing model and output a cut of conductance at most $\tilde O(\sqrt{\phi})$ with high probability, in $\tilde O(\frac{1}{b}(\frac{1}{\phi} + n))$ rounds, where $b$ is balance of the cut of given conductance. In particular, to find a sparse cut of constant balance, our algorithms take $\tilde O(\frac{1}{\phi} + n)$ rounds. Our algorithms can also be used to output a {\em local} cluster, i.e., a subset of vertices near a given source node, and whose conductance is within a quadratic factor of the best possible cluster around the specified node. Both our distributed algorithm can work without knowledge of the optimal $\phi$ value and hence can be used to find approximate conductance values both globally and with respect to a given source node. We also give a lower bound on the time needed for any distributed algorithm to compute any non-trivial sparse cut --- any distributed approximation algorithm (for any non-trivial approximation ratio) for computing sparsest cut will take $\tilde \Omega(\sqrt{n} + D)$ rounds...

Synchronization in networks with delayed coupling are ubiquitous in nature and play a key role in almost all fields of science including physics, biology, ecology, climatology and sociology. In general, the published works on network synchronization are based on data analysis and simulations, with little experimental verification. Here we develop and experimentally demonstrate various multi-cluster phase synchronization scenarios within coupled laser networks. Synchronization is controlled by the network connectivity in accordance to number theory, whereby the number of synchronized clusters equals the greatest common divisor of network loops. This dependence enables remote switching mechanisms to control the optical phase coherence among distant lasers by local network connectivity adjustments. Our results serve as a benchmark for a broad range of coupled oscillators in science and technology, and offer feasible routes to achieve multi-user secure protocols in communication networks and parallel distribution of versatile complex combinatorial tasks in optical computers.; Comment: 13 pages, 4 figure and supplementary information

We analyze the performance of a linear code used for a data compression of Slepian-Wolf type. In our framework, two correlated data are separately compressed into codewords employing Gallager-type codes and casted into a communication network through two independent input terminals. At the output terminal, the received codewords are jointly decoded by a practical algorithm based on the Thouless-Anderson-Palmer approach. Our analysis shows that the achievable rate region presented in the data compression theorem by Slepian and Wolf is described as first-order phase transitions among several phases. The typical performance of the practical decoder is also well evaluated by the replica method.; Comment: 8 pages, 3 figures

Kiamilev, Fouad E.; In recent years, rapid development of wireless communication systems has en- abled developers to design and increase the connectivity of devices within the home environment. At the same time, smart methods for lowering power consumption have been studied to help combat rising energy costs. This thesis presents the design and implementation of an energy smart wire- lessly controllable home automation network. The design consists of a base station that has an FPGA, acting as a coprocessor, running a Linux distribution on the Xilinx MicroBlaze soft core. The FPGA has many peripherals including Ethernet connectivity and allows for further prototyping of possible communication meth- ods. Also connected to the FPGA is a ZigBee 802.15.4 wireless radio which allows for data to be passed between ZigBee wireless networks to coordinate turning items within the house on and off. This is accomplished by tracking a user through a house using a wearable wireless beacon and automating power saving responses. A simple prototype of the design is implemented using simple electrical devices for validating the basic functions and testing has shown successful results were achieved. The overall goal of the project is to learn to design an embedded system from scratch and have a platform that can be used as an educational module for future projects...
