    The flexibility of Cloud computing allows elastic services to adapt to changes in workload patterns in order to achieve desired Service Level Objectives (SLOs) at a reduced cost. Typically, the service adapts to changes ...
  • Vehicular networks on two Madrid highways 

    Gramaglia, Marco; Trullols Cruces, Óscar; Naboulsi, Diala; Fiore, Marco; Calderón, Maria (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    There is a growing need for vehicular mobility datasets that can be employed in the simulative evaluation of protocols and architectures designed for upcoming vehicular networks. Such datasets should be realistic, publicly ...
  • WiBed, a platform for commodity wireless testbeds 

    Escrich, Pau; Baig Viñas, Roger; Dimogerontakis, Emmanouil; Carbo Sole, Eloi; Neumann, Axel; Fonseca, Alexander; Freitag, Fèlix; Navarro Moldes, Leandro (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Testbeds are a stage between the simulation and the production stages. To this end they must be as close as possible to production environments (i.e. real hardware, on the field deployments) while also keeping the traits ...
  • Experiences with distributed heterogeneous clouds over community networks 

    Selimi, Mennan; Freitag, Fèlix; Martí, Daniel; Pueyo, Roguer; Escrich, Pau; Baig Viñas, Roger (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014)
    Conference lecture
