Grid-based Coordinated Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks

Grid-based Coordinated Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks

Date: January 2007
Creator: Akl, Robert G. & Sawant, Uttara
Description: This paper discusses grid-based coordinated routing in wireless sensor networks and compares the energy available in the network over time for different grid sizes. The authors explore the quality of service of wireless sensor networks, how the coordinator nodes are elected, and the size of the grid area that will minimize the total energy consumption and extend the lifetime of the network.

Retention and Recruitment of Women in Computer Engineering

Retention and Recruitment of Women in Computer Engineering

Date: July 2006
Creator: Akl, Robert G. & Garlick, Ryan
Description: This paper describes the efforts and results of a plan for actively recruiting women students to undergraduate computer engineering programs at the University of North Texas (UNT). It also describes a series of activities aimed at improving retention rates of women students already in our programs. Such recruitment and retention of women is critical to the country's efforts to increase the number of engineering professionals, and is a priority for the Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) Department at UNT.

Throughput Optimization in Multi-Cell CDMA Networks

Throughput Optimization in Multi-Cell CDMA Networks

Date: March 2005
Creator: Akl, Robert G.; Naraghi-Pour, Mort & Hegde, Manju V.
Description: In this paper, the authors investigate the performance of a multi-cell CDMA network by determining the maximum throughput that the network can archive for a given grade-of-service requirement, quality-of-service requirement, network topology and call arrival rate profile. The analysis is restricted to the reverse link and accounts for mobility of users between cell. A constrained nonlinear optimization problem is formulated that maximizes the network throughput subject to upper bounds on the blocking probabilities and a lower bound on the bit energy to interference ratio. The goal is to optimize the usage of network resources, provide consistent grade-of-service for all the cells in the network, and maintain a pre-specified quality-of-service. The solution to the optimization problem yields the maximum network throughput as well as the maximum number of calls that should be admitted in each cell for a given topology and call arrival rate profile. Our optimization algorithm yields significantly higher throughput compared with traditional call admission schemes.

Throughput Validation of an Advanced Channel Assignment Algorithm in IEEE 802.11 WLAN

Throughput Validation of an Advanced Channel Assignment Algorithm in IEEE 802.11 WLAN

Date: February 2009
Creator: Haidar, Mohamad; Al-Rizzo, Hussain Mudhaffar Younis, 1957-; Chan, Yupo; Akl, Robert G. & Bouharras, Mohamad
Description: In this article, an enhanced channel-assignment algorithm at the Access Points (APs) of a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) is validated. The algorithm aims to maximize the Signal-to-Interference Ratio (SIR) at the user level in order to determine the appropriate channel at the APs. The initial channel assignment step at the APs is based on minimizing the total interference between APs. Based on this initial assignment, the SIR for each user is calculated. Then, another channel assignment is performed based on maximizing the SIR at the users. The algorithm can be applied to any WLAN, irrespective of the user distribution and user load. Results show that the algorithm is capable of significantly increasing the SIR over the WLAN, which in turn should improve throughput. Therefore, the authors use OPNET simulation tool to construct several realistic scenarios in order to validate our results.
