With the emergence of Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks (WMSNs), the distribution of multimedia contents have now become a reality. Without proper management, the transmission of multimedia data over WMSNs affects the performance of networks due to excessive packet-drop. The existing studies on Quality of Service (QoS) mostly deal with simple Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and as such do not... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Location check-ins contain both geographical and semantic information about the visited venues. Semantic information is usually represented by means of tags (e.g., “restaurant”). Such data can reveal some personal information about users beyond what they actually expect to disclose, hence their privacy is threatened. To mitigate such threats, several privacy...

The energy harvesting technology enables nodes to gather energy from a surrounding environment, and store excessive energy for later use. With the energy harvesting technology, the MAC protocol design paradigm shifts from “how to reduce energy consumption” to “how to optimize performance with harvested energy.” Legacy MAC protocols such as Framed...

In this paper, a downlink cellular traffic offloading framework with social-aware device-to-device (D2D) content sharing and proactive caching is studied. In the considered system model, each user equipment (UE) is intelligent to determine which content(s) to request/cache and to share according to its own preference. As the central controller, the base station (BS) can establish cellular... Read more on IEEE Xplore

With the expected surge in the global IP traffic, service providers would need to adapt accordingly to operate disruption and loss free networks supported with the developing IP infrastructure. With the disposal of the hierarchical network structure, radio access networks are moving towards a flat-IP architecture and novel topological set-ups in the backhaul. Hence, a routing paradigm that... Read more on IEEE Xplore
