1. Functional Evaluation of the Cloud Type Virtual Policy Based Network Management Scheme for the Common Use between Plural Organizations

Kazuya Odagiri, Shogo Shimizu, Naohiro Ishii
Pages: 62 - 70
In the current Internet system, there are many problems using anonymity of the network communication such as personal information leaks and crimes using the Internet system. This is why TCP/IP protocol used in Internet system does not have the user identification information on the communication data,...

2. Evaluating the Performance of Recoverable End-of-life Products in the Reverse Supply Chain

Santoso Wibowo, Srimannarayana Grandhi
Pages: 71 - 79
Evaluating the performance of recoverable end-of-life products with respect to a set of specific criteria is challenging. This is due to multi-dimensional nature of the decision making process, multiple evaluation criteria, and subjective and imprecise assessments. To effectively deal with this issue,...

3. An Intelligent Cross-Layer QoS-Aware Protocol with Traffic-Differentiation-Based for Energy Efficient Communication in WSNs

Jawad Ahmad Haqbeen, Takayuki Ito, Mohammad Arifuzzaman, Takanobu Otsuka
Pages: 80 - 92
Despite an increase in energy efficiency of WSNs research in couple of last years, still the key challenge in the design of WSNs remains to maximize the quality of service (QoS) and energy efficiency of network system. The layered strength and functionality collaboration is commonly considered as one...
