CARES: Computation-Aware Scheduling in Virtualized Radio Access Networks

In a virtualized radio access network (RAN), baseband processing is performed by software running in cloud-computing platforms. However, current protocol stacks were not designed to run in this kind of environment, the high variability on the …

Identifying 5G System Enhancements: Enabling Technologies for Multi-Service Networks

The fifth generation (5G) of mobile and wireless communications networks aims at addressing a diverse set of use cases, services, and applications with a particular focus on enabling new business cases via network slicing. The development of 5G has …

POSENS: A Practical Open Source Solution for End-to-End Network Slicing

Network slicing represents a new paradigm to operate mobile networks. With network slicing, the underlying infrastructure is ``sliced'' into logically separate networks that can be customized to the specific needs of their tenant. Hands-on …

On the level of detail of synthetic highway traffic necessary to vehicular networking studies

The proper modeling of road traffic is paramount to the dependability of studies on vehicular networking solutions intended for highway environments. Yet, it is not clear which is the actual level of detail in the mobility representation that is …

Overhearing-Assisted Optimization of Address Autoconfiguration in Position-Aware VANETs

Vehicular networks allow vehicles to exchange information that can be used to improve traffic efficiency and drivers' safety. In addition to these new applications, Internet connectivity is also expected to be available in the cars of the near …

Performance evaluation of a tree-based routing and address autoconfiguration for vehicle-to-Internet communications

Vehicular ad hoc networks have proven to be quite useful for broadcast alike communications between nearby cars, but can also be used to provide Internet connectivity from vehicles. In order to do so, vehicle-to-Internet routing and IP address …

New insights from the analysis of free flow vehicular traffic in highways

Building vehicular networks in roads and highways is a challenging research topic with a large number of applications ranging from traffic jams and car collisions prevention to efficient route planning. The analysis of the distance between vehicles …

TREBOL: Tree-Based Routing and Address Autoconfiguration for Vehicle-to-Internet Communications

Efficient vehicle-to-internet routing and address autoconfiguration are two of the missing pieces required to provide Internet connectivity from vehicles. Here, we propose TREBOL, a tree-based and configurable protocol which benefits from the …
