1. Software Enabled Future Internet – challenges in orchestrating the future Internet - Galis, Alex; Rubio-Loyola, Javier; Clayman, Stuart; Mamatas, Lefteris; Kuklinski, Slawomir; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Zahariadis, Theodore
This position paper presents SoftINTERNET an initiative for a service-aware and management-aware network control infrastructure for heterogeneous networks (i.e., wired and wireless) that uses software driven features for the elaboration, development, and validation of networking concepts. The proposed infrastructure aims to optimally integrate the connectivity and management layers. It operates across multiple network environments and on top of private and public network clouds utilising fixed and mobile virtual resources, OpenFlow enabled network devices like switches and routers, and networks of Smart Objects. In this position paper, we discuss the motivation, architecture and research challenges for such a promising concept.

2. Multilayered reinforcement learning approach for radio resource management - Kevin, Collados; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Hu, Zheng
In this paper we face the challenge of designing self-tuning systems governing the working parameters of base stations on a mobile network system to optimize the quality of service and the economic benefit of the operator. In order to accomplish this double objective, we propose the combined use of fuzzy logic and reinforcement learning to implement a self-tuning system using a novel approach based on a two-agent system. Different combinations of reinforcement learning techniques, on both agents, have been tested to deduce the optimal approach. The best results have been obtained applying the Q-learning technique on both agents, clearly outperforming...

3. Optimized path selection in a game-theoretic routing protocol for video-streaming services over MANETs - Mezher, Ahmad; Tripp Barba, Carolina; Urquiza Aguiar, Luis; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica; Martín Faus, Isabel Victoria; Cruz Llopis, Luis Javier de la; Sanvicente Gargallo, Emilio
Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are infrastructureless networks formed by wireless mobile devices. Recently, the demand over multimedia services such as video streaming has increased specially since the number of mobile end users is growing as well. MPEG-2 VBR is one of the most fitting video coding techniques for MANETs which improves the distribution of video streams specially when it is used with a proper multipath routing scheme. In this article, we aimed to design a routing scheme to dynamically select the forwarding paths using a game-theoretic approach over a multipath routing protocol. Our proposal seeks to describe an equation of the probability p of sending video frames through the best...

4. Autonomic resource management in virtual network - Mijumbi, Rashid; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Serrat Fernández, Juan
Virtualization enables the building of multiple virtual networks over a shared substrate. One of the challenges to virtualisation is efficient resource allocation. This problem has been found to be NP hard. Therefore, most approaches to it have not only proposed static solutions, but have also made many assumptions to simplify it. In this paper, we propose a distributed, autonomic and artificial intelligence based solution to resource allocation. Our aim is to obtain self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-healing and context aware virtual networks

5. Multi-agent based resource allocation in next generation virtual networks - Mijumbi, Rashid; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis

6. A price based load balancing scheme for multi-operator wireless access networks - Choque, Johnny; Agüero, Ramon; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Muñoz, Luis
We study a load balancing strategy, based on the price offered by the base stations to the end-users who are willing to establish a connection. The proposed scheme is compared with a pure load balancing procedure, in a scenario comprising two different operators.We study the impact of modifying the price offered by the base stations, in terms of the achieved load balancing, as well as considering the revenue obtained by the operators. Furthermore, we also enhance the two former access selection schemes, by incorporating the willingness of reducing the number of handovers, so as to analyze the impact over this particular parameter, and over all the previous results. The...

7. On the equilibrium of pricing assignment for heterogeneous wireless access networks - López, Carmen; Choque, Johnny; Agüero, Ramon; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Muñoz, Luis
Next generation networks and service providers are rapidly evolving in order to satisfy the demands of an increasing number of users. Nowadays, one of the most relevant research lines in the Heterogeneous Wireless Access Networks realm is the use of procedures and mechanisms so as to provide intelligence to the network, with the main goal of optimizing its performance. Furthermore, mobile communication users are becoming more demanding, and thus it becomes essential for the providers to be able to offer a competitive value for money. This paper pursues the objective of obtaining, from an analytical perspective, the optimum price assignment strategy according to the characteristics of a particular scenario, analyzing...

8. Policy-assisted planning and deployment of virtual networks - Davy, Steven; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Astorga Rivera, José Antonio; Jennings, Brendan; Rubio-Loyola, J.
We present an approach for deploying and subsequently managing a virtual network overlay, which is tailored to an end-user’s request. Our approach combines a binary integer optimisation process to decide on the number and placement of virtual routers, and an autonomic network management system that subsequently manages the configuration of the running virtual network. High-level optimisation policies are used to guide the optimisation process to identify a virtual network that favours lower hosting costs or higher network quality (we use mean delays as a quality metric). Low-level deployment policies are generated and used to govern the deployment and management of the virtual networks. Our...

9. Policy-based pricing for heterogeneous wireless access networks - Baliosian, Javier; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Richart, Matias; Saavedra, Juan; Borba, Mariela; Melus Moreno, José Luis
Our cities are already covered by a myriad of diverse wireless access networks. The most ubiquitous access networks are the well organized homogeneous and centralized operator-based cellular networks that sustain their business model on a captive client basis. However, a new billing paradigm is rising, where a client can choose to connect to the provider that best comply with his/her current requirements and context. Inside this paradigm, this paper presents a distributed, rule-based pricing strategy aimed to improve the quality of service and to increase the global income of a service provider. The performance and reliability of the rule-based decisions is supported by a Finite...

La irrupción de nuevos servicios, y el imparable aumento del número de tecnologías de acceso a disposición de los usuarios, hace que los diferentes actores involucrados en el ámbito de las comunicaciones tengan que replantearse sus estrategias tradicionales. Es necesario afrontar el diseño de una arquitectura capaz de asumir los retos que van apareciendo, siendo clave romper con algunas de las soluciones tradicionales, que no son capaces de responder a las nuevas exigencias que aparecen. Uno de los aspectos más importantes es afrontar el diseño desde un punto de vista global, haciendo que las diferentes entidades cooperen entre sí de...

11. Alternatives for indoor location estimation on uncoordinated environments - Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Cotrina Navau, Josep
Approaches based on signal-strength measurements are at present the most popular on indoor location due to their reasonable accuracy and cost effective deployment. In this paper, we present an outlook of our research on different alternatives to implement an indoor location approach based on signal-strength measurements for an uncoordinated environment, an environment where we do not have any control on the number of access points, their location, availability or transmitted power.

12. Platforms and software systems for an autonomic internet - de Meer, H.; Paler, A.; Fischer, A.; Mornard, O.; Lefevre, L.; Rubio Loyola, Javier; Astorga Rivera, José Antonio; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Chai, W.K.; Mamatas, L.; Galis, A.; Clayman, S.; Cheniour, A.
The current Internet does not enable easy introduction and deployment of new network technologies and services. This paper aims to progress the Future Internet (FI) by introduction of a service composition and execution environment that re-use existing components of access and core networks. This paper presents essential service-centric platforms and software systems that have been developed with the aim to create a flexible environment for an Autonomic Internet.

13. Evaluación de prestaciones de RSVP extendido para un escenario con garantías de distribución - Postigo Boix, Marcos; Melus Moreno, José Luis
In some guaranteed data delivery scenarios, servers can quickly and carefully allocate the available bandwidth among the requests of the users to reduce rejections. This is particularly important when reservations are higher than minimum required delivery rate (semi-elastic reservations). As an example, when semi-elastic reservations utilize all the available server bandwidth and a new flow reservation arrives, it is useful to reallocate current reservations to accept the new one. The RSVP protocol is receiver oriented and it is in charge of setting up these reservations. However, in some cases, to reallocate bandwidth in a receiver riented way could delay the required...

14. Estrategia de búsqueda de dispositivos basada en el historial de conexiones utilizando redes neuronales - Abad Padilla, José Alfredo; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis
La movilidad es una de las principales características de las redes de comunicación actuales y produce cambios en su estructura, que en muchas ocasiones no son advertidos por la totalidad de los dispositivos que la conforman, principalmente por la distancia entre los dispositivos y el rango de transmisión. Por ello, la comunicación entre dos dispositivos se convierte en un problema de enrutamiento, el cual se define como la búsqueda de trayectorias mediante una adecuada estrategia. Para abordar esta situación, planteamos una estrategia de búsqueda basada en el historial de onexiones del dispositivo móvil. Por naturaleza, una persona tiende a exhibir comportamientos repetitivos,...

15. Surveillance with alert management system using conventional cell phones - Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Brezmes, Tomas; Cotrina Navau, Josep; Rersa, Marc
In the present paper we expose the development of a real-time monitoring prototype of human activities using a single cell phone equipped with some sensors. The monitoring system is reduced to the minimum expression; no special hardware is required as far as a conventional cell phone will monitor the user, classify the user activities with respect to a customized rule’s set, and finally trigger the corresponding alerts, when necessary.

16. Técnicas de evaluación de la calidad en la Imagen. Tendencias y métricas basadas en bordes - Silvestre, Javier; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis
En los últimos años se ha dado un increment o exponencial en el uso y desarrollo de todo tipo de aplicaciones multimedia, como la videovigilancia, los sistemas de visión industriales o los sistemas de telediagnóstico y análisis de imagen médica. En este tipo de aplicaciones el elemento de entrada al sistema es la imagen. La calidad de la imagen de entrada puede influir en el comportamiento del sistema, haciendo necesario conocer la calidad de la imagen de entrada y acotar los límites de degradación que las aplicaciones pueden tolerar. En este trabajo se analizan algunas de las técnicas más recientes,...

17. Business-driven management of differentiated services - Rubio Loyola, Javier; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Charalambides, Marinos; Aib, Issam; Pavlou, George; Boutaba, Raouf
Several intra- and inter-domain quality of service (QoS) provisioning mechanisms for IP networks have been researched and developed using Differentiated Services (DiffServ) technology. However, the incremental efforts needed to manage DiffServ networks from a business-oriented viewpoint have received relatively little attention. This paper addresses this gap and presents a framework for achieving business-driven QoS provisioning in DiffServ over MPLS networks. We provide a rich model of SLA and business indicators as well as reasonable mapping functions that define, with key degrees of importance, the impact of business indicators over service management policies. Business and service indicators are used to control static and dynamic admission of services. The paper advances the state of the...

18. Activity monitoring of employees working on large premises - Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Sempere-Payá, Víctor-M.; Silvestre, Javier
In this paper we expose our present work on a real-time monitoring system of human activities, using only a single cell phone equipped with some particular sensors. This way the monitoring system is reduced to the minimum expression, no especial hardware is required as far as a conventional cell phone will monitor the user. In particular, we expose our progress on a monitoring system devoted to supervising employee’s work on large premises, detecting abnormal behaviours, hazardous situations and managing the corresponding alert procedures.

19. User activity monitoring using conventional cell phones - Brezmes, Tomas; Gorricho Moreno, Juan Luis; Cotrina Navau, Josep; Rersa, Marc
User activity monitoring has a considerable potential for a whole range of new applications in different environments: user surveillance, military purposes, health-care, etc. More precisely, in health-care there is an implicit potential application monitoring elderly people or patients suffering an illness. Besides, nowadays our society is more than ever exposed to an aging population, which is one of the main concerns of present administrations. Any technical approach alleviating the ever increasing health-care budget will be welcomed. Thankfully, recent progress in communication technologies and sensor miniaturization has opened the door to new approaches overcoming the above mentioned situation, involving, for example, remote...

20. Monitoring of a virtual infrastructure testbed - Magana, Edgar; Astorga Rivera, José Antonio; Serrat Fernández, Juan; Valle Alarcón, Rafael
This paper presents a SNMP-based Monitoring Agents for Multi-Constrain Resource Scheduling in Grids (SBLOMARS) as an effective solution for resource usage monitoring in virtual network environments. SBLOMARS is different to current large-scale distributed monitoring systems in three essential aspects: Firstly, it reaches a high level of generality by the integration of the SNMP protocol and thus, facilitates to handle heterogeneous operating platforms. Secondly, it is able to self-configure the polling periods of the resources to be monitored depending of network context and finally, it makes use of dynamic software structures to interface with third parties, allowing to be deployed in a wide range of devices, from simple mobile access devices to robust multiprocessor...
