    As the virtualization of networks continues to attract attention from both industry and academia, the virtual network embedding (VNE) problem remains a focus of researchers. This paper proposes a one-shot, unsplittable ...
  • A multi-user game-theoretical multipath routing protocol to send video-warning messages over mobile ad hoc networks 

    Mezher Mezher, Ahmad; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica; Cruz Llopis, Luis Javier de la; Pallarès Segarra, Esteve; Tripp Barba, Carolina; Urquiza Aguiar, Luis; Fornés Guardia, Jordi; Sanvicente Gargallo, Emilio (2015-04-17)
    Article
    Open Access
    The prevention of accidents is one of the most important goals of ad hoc networks in smart cities. When an accident happens, dynamic sensors (e.g., citizens with smart phones or tablets, smart vehicles and buses, etc.) ...
  • CoCoA+: an advanced congestion control mechanism for CoAP 

    Betzler, August; Gómez Montenegro, Carlos; Seyfettin Demirkol, Ilker; Paradells Aspas, Josep (Elsevier, 2015-10-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) has been designed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) for Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Due to the limited radio channel capacities and hardware resources of such ...
  • Integration of body sensor networks and vehicular ad-hoc networks for traffic safety
