• Algorithms for distributed caching and aggregation 

    Tiwari, Mitul (2007-12)
    In recent years, there has been an explosion in the amount of distributed data due to the ever decreasing cost of both storage and bandwidth. There is a growing need for automatic distributed data management techniques. The ...
  • Architectures and algorithms for high performance switching 

    Prakash, Amit (2004)
    Switches are ubiquitous in modern computing, appearing in wide-area networks, multiprocessor servers, and data storage systems. With the the advent of high-speed link technology, switches have become the bottleneck in ...
  • Cross-layer discovery and routing in mobile ad-hoc networks 

    Venkataraman, Meenakshi (2006-05)
    Communication in ad hoc networks traditionally relies on network addresses known a priori. This work addresses the need for application-aware adaptive communication that creates network routes based on applications’ dynamic ...
  • Flow decomposition of cost-constrained networks 

    Bodas, Shreeshankar Ravishankar (2007-12)
    In this thesis, we consider the problem of communicating data over a network of cost-constrained networks. We first look at a network with a single source and a single destination and prove that the information-theoretic ...
  • A fractional N frequency synthesizer for an adaptive network backplane serial communication system 

    Rangan, Giri N. K. (2005)
    An architecture and design of a Phase Locked Loop based frequency synthesizer is developed in this dissertation. Using multiple phases generated by a ring oscillator, this synthesizer is able to generate non-integer ...
  • Improving performance and incentives in disruption-tolerant networks 

    Shevade, Upendra (2010-08)
    The recent proliferation of personal wireless devices has led to the emergence of disruption-tolerant networks (DTNs), which are characterized by intermittent connectivity among some or all participating nodes and a ...
  • Network congestion control 

    Yang, Yang (2001-08)
    In a shared network such as the Internet, end systems should react to congestion by adapting their transmission rates to avoid congestion collapse and to keep network utilization high. The robustness of the current ...
  • Network-on-chip implementation and performance improvement through workload characterization and congestion awareness 

    Gratz, Paul V., 1970- (2008-12)
    Off-chip interconnection networks provide for communication between processors and components within computer systems. Semiconductor process technology trends have led to the inclusion of multiple processors and components ...
  • Retrospect on contemporary Internet organization and its challenges in the future 

    Gutierrez De Lara, Felipe (2011-05)
    The intent of this report is to expose the audience to the contemporary organization of the Internet and to highlight the challenges it has to deal with in the future as well as the current efforts being made to overcome ...
  • Scalable and flexible network measurement 

    Song, Han Hee, 1978- (2006-05)
    As the Internet continues to grow, it is increasingly important for users, service providers, and application developers to measure, debug, and understand the performance of the wide-area network. Consequently, network ...
  • ShaRE: run-time system for high-performance virtualized routers 

    Kokku, Ravindranath (2005)
    The enormous size and scope of today’s Internet make the deployment of new network technologies and advanced services difficult. One strategy to address such ossification is to combine two evolving trends in building ...
