    The transition towards full network virtualization will see services for smart ecosystems including smart metering, healthcare and transportation among others, being deployed as Service Function Chains (SFCs) comprised of ...
  • Slicing in WiFi networks through airtime-based resource allocation 

    Richart Gutiérrez, Matías Mario; Baliosian De Lazzari, Javier Ernesto; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Agüero Calvo, Ramón (2018-11-23)
    Article
    Open Access
    Network slicing is one of the key enabling technologies for 5G networks. It allows infrastructure owners to assign resources to service providers (tenants), which will afterwards use them to satisfy their end-user demands. ...
  • Slicing with guaranteed quality of service in WiFi networks 

    Richart Gutiérrez, Matías Mario; Baliosian, Javier; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Agüero Calvo, Ramón (2020-06-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    Network slicing has recently been proposed as one of the main enablers for 5G networks. The slicing concept consists of the partition of a physical network into several self-contained logical networks (slices) that can be ...
  • A novel dynamic programming inspired algorithm for embedding of virtual networks in future networks 

    Kibalya, Godfrey Mirondo; Serrat, Joan; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Yao, Haipeng; Zhang, Peiying (2020-06-06)
    Article

    Network virtualization is envisioned to support flexible, cost effective and on-demand deployment of multiple Virtual Networks (VNs) on a shared underlying infrastructure. A key challenge under the virtualization paradigm ...
  • Extent prediction of the information and influence propagation in online social networks 

    Ortiz Gaona, Raúl Marcelo; Postigo Boix, Marcos; Melus Moreno, José Luis (2020-03-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present a new mathematical model that predicts the number of users informed and influenced by messages that are propagated in an online social network. Our model is based on a new way of quantifying the tie-strength, ...
  • An alternative procedure to obtain the mortality rate with non-linear functions: Application to the case of the Spanish population

  • Feasibility study to evaluate the potential entry of a new F-MVNO into the Spanish mobile market 

    Tomas, Joaquin; Melus Moreno, José Luis (Sciencedomain International, 2017)
    Article
    Open Access
    The mobile market until a decade ago had been composed mainly of Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). To promote greater competition in this market the European Commission (EC) has promoted various actions in the regulatory ...
  • Self-adaptive online virtual network migration in network virtualization environments 

    Zangiabady, Mahboobeh; García Robledo, Alberto; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Rubio Loyola, Javier (Wiley-Blackwell, 2019-01-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    In Network Virtualization Environments, the capability of operators to allocate resources in the Substrate Network (SN) to support Virtual Networks (VNs) in an optimal manner is known as Virtual Network Embedding (VNE). ...
  • Fast and efficient energy-oriented cell assignment in heterogeneous networks 

    Rubio Loyola, Javier; Aguilar Fuster, Christian; Díez Fernández, Luis Francisco; Agüero Calvo, Ramón; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Serrat Fernández, Juan (Springer, 2019-06-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    The cell assignment problem is combinatorial, with increased complexity when it is tackled considering resource allocation. This paper models joint cell assignment and resource allocation for cellular heterogeneous networks, ...
