Delayed and Network Queues

Presents an introduction to differential equations, probability, and stochastic processes with real-world applications of queues with delay and delayed network queues. Featuring recent advances in queueing theory and modeling, Delayed and Network Queues provides the most up-to-date theories in queueing model applications. Balancing both theoretical and practical applications of queueing theory, the book introduces queueing network models as tools to assist in the answering of questions on cost and performance that arise throughout the life of a computer system and signal processing

Swarms and Network Intelligence in Search

This book offers a comprehensive analysis of the theory and tools needed for the development of an efficient and robust infrastructure for the design of collaborative patrolling unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) swarms, focusing on its applications for tactical intelligence drones. It discusses frameworks for robustly and near-optimally analyzing flocks of semi-autonomous vehicles designed to efficiently perform the ongoing dynamic patrolling and scanning of pre-defined “search regions”. It discusses the theoretical limitations of such systems, as well as the trade-offs between the systems’ various economic and operational parameters.

Virtualized Software-Defined Networks and Services

This comprehensive resource presents the latest developments in key software-defined network (SDN) technologies including SDN controllers, network control and management applications, southbound protocols, and northbound interfaces. Network Function visualization (NFV) technologies are reviewed, including NFV infrastructure, virtualized network functions, and virtual network management and orchestration. Professionals find comprehensive discussions on the relationship between SDN and NFV and how they may integrate into unified future network architecture. Virtualization network services including, cloud, carrier Ethernet services, and IP VPN services are also covered.

Link-Layer Cooperative Communication in Vehicular Networks

This book presents link-layer cooperative frameworks to improve transmission reliability and network throughput of distributed TDMA MAC protocols in vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). The main objective of this book is to present link-layer node cooperation schemes to enhance the link-layer performance of vehicular networks, in terms of reliability and system throughput. The authors present approaches proposed for the medium access control (MAC) and node cooperation in VANETs.
