Home networking: Performance and architecture challenges

Khaldoun Al Agha, Walter Grote, Yutaka Takahashi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Some of the technical papers presented and accepted after a careful review at the IFIP Home Networking Conference held in December 2007 in Paris, France, are discussed. The first paper explore a new architecture that permits to extend the high bit coverage area in UWB standard using radiofrequency to optical signal transceivers and optical fibers. The second paper present a performance analysis to study the goodput of Wi-Fi-based home networks for mixed traffic with the help of two different analytical models. The third paper propose a new architecture that achieves a distributed energy allocation by sharing computational resources in home environments. The fourth paper offer a new routing mechanism for sensor networks by balancing traffic load on possible routes while keeping complete connectivity of the network.
