Quality of Service in TDM/WDM Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPONs)
Found in: Computers and Communications, IEEE Symposium on
By Ahmad R. Dhaini, Chadi M. Assi, Abdallah Shami
Issue Date:June 2006
pp. 616-621
Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPONs) are currently being designed to deliver multiple services and applications, such as voice communications (VoIP), standard and highdefinition video (STV and HDTV), video conferencing (interactive video) and data traf...
Concurrent Multipath Transfer Using SCTP: Modelling and Congestion Window Management
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing
By T. Daniel Wallace,Abdallah Shami
Issue Date:November 2014
pp. 2510-2523
Concurrent multipath transfer (CMT) using the stream control transmission protocol (SCTP) can exploit multihomed devices to enhance data communications. While SCTP is a new transport layer protocol supporting multihomed end-points, CMT provides a framework...
Energy-Aware Resource Allocation Strategies for LTE Uplink with Synchronous HARQ Constraints
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing
By Dan J. Dechene,Abdallah Shami
Issue Date:February 2014
pp. 422-433
In this paper, we propose a framework for energy efficient resource allocation in multiuser localized SC-FDMA with synchronous HARQ constraints. Resource allocation is formulated as a two-stage problem where resources are allocated in both time and frequen...
Intelligent Consensus Modeling for ProlineCis-Trans Isomerization Prediction
Found in: IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
By Paul D. Yoo,Sami Muhaidat,Kamal Taha,Jamal Bentahar,Abdallah Shami
Issue Date:January 2014
pp. 26-32
Proline cis-trans isomerization (CTI) plays a key role in the rate-determining steps of protein folding. Accurate prediction of proline CTI is of great importance for the understanding of protein folding, splicing, cell signaling, and transmembrane active ...
Analysis of Enhanced Collision Avoidance Scheme Proposed for IEEE 802.11e-Enhanced Distributed Channel Access Protocol
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing
By Khalim Amjad Meerja, Abdallah Shami
Issue Date:October 2009
pp. 1353-1367
In enhanced distributed channel access (EDCA) protocol, small contention window (CW) sizes are used for frequent channel access by high-priority traffic (such as voice). But these small CW sizes, which may be suboptimal for a given network scenario, can in...
A Novel MIMO-Aware Distributed Media Access Control Scheme for IEEE 802.11 Wireless Local Area Networks
Found in: Local Computer Networks, Annual IEEE Conference on
By Dan J. Dechene, Khalim Amjad Meerja, Abdallah Shami, Serguei Primak
Issue Date:October 2007
pp. 125-132
This paper proposes a new distributed media access control (MAC) scheme to improve the network performance of Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) wireless systems. In particular, this novel MAC scheme efficiently schedules two simultaneous transmissions ...
Robust QoS Control for Single Carrier PMP Mode IEEE 802.16 Systems
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing
By Xiaofeng Bai, Abdallah Shami, Yinghua Ye
Issue Date:April 2008
pp. 416-429
The IEEE 802.16 WirelessMAN standard provides a comprehensive quality-of-service (QoS) control structure to enable flow isolation and service differentiation over the common wireless network interface. By specifying a particular set of service parameters, ...
A New Framework for Rapid Restoration in Optical Mesh Networks
Found in: Parallel Processing Workshops, International Conference on
By Wei Huo, Chadi Assi, Abdallah Shami
Issue Date:August 2004
pp. 363-370
A fundamental problem that needs to be addressed when designing survivable optical transport networks is the capability of these networks to quickly recover from element failures. Current restoration signaling is a two-phase messaging procedure between the...
QoS-Aware Power-Efficient Scheduler for LTE Uplink
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing
By Mohamad Kalil,Abdallah Shami,Arafat Al-Dweik
Issue Date:February 2015
pp. 1
The continuous increase of mobile data traffic has created a substantial demand for high data rate transmission over mobile networks. However, mobile devices are provided with small batteries that can be drained quickly by high data rate transmission. Moti...
