Efficient Scheduling Algorithms For Wireless Resource Allocation And Virtualization In Wireless Networks, Mohamad Kalil Nov 2015

Efficient Scheduling Algorithms For Wireless Resource Allocation And Virtualization In Wireless Networks, Mohamad Kalil

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The continuing growth in demand for better mobile broadband experiences has motivated rapid development of radio-access technologies to support high data rates and improve quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) for mobile users. However, the modern radio-access technologies pose new challenges to mobile network operators (MNO) and wireless device designers such as reducing the total cost of ownership while supporting high data throughput per user, and extending battery life-per-charge of the mobile devices. In this thesis, a variety of optimization techniques aimed at providing innovative solutions for such challenges are explored.

The thesis is divided into two ...


Advanced Compression And Latency Reduction Techniques Over Data Networks, Fuad Shamieh Apr 2015

Advanced Compression And Latency Reduction Techniques Over Data Networks, Fuad Shamieh

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Applications and services operating over Internet protocol (IP) networks often suffer from high latency and packet loss rates. These problems are attributed to data congestion resulting from the lack of network resources available to support the demand. The usage of IP networks is not only increasing, but very dynamic as well. In order to alleviate the above-mentioned problems and to maintain a reasonable Quality of Service (QoS) for the end users, two novel adaptive compression techniques are proposed to reduce packets’ payload size. The proposed schemes exploit lossless compression algorithms to perform the compression process on the packets’ payloads and ...
