Self-Aware Networks and Quality of Service

Abstract:   We will describe a self-aware packet network design that uses smart and ACK packets to collect and store data about network state. Smart packets also search for routes using QoS criteria suggested by users. Connections then forward their payload using dumb packets along routes which have been discovered by smart packets. Extensive experiments on several tast-beds we have implemented, based on wired and ad-hoc wireless connectivity, will be described.

Short Bio:   Erol Gelenbe is the University Chair Professor and Director of the School of EECS at UCF. A Fellow of ACM and the IEEE, his interests span neural computation, computer networks, and computer and network performance evaluation and QoS. In 2001 he was awarded the medal of Officer of the National Order of Merit of France for his research contributions.
