    In this paper, the authors propose a novel mobility management scheme to support fast handover for both the mobile receiver and publisher in Named Data Networking (NDN). This proposal uses the hierarchical names to identify the target access router (AR), and then the network-based branching node selection is adopted for the distributed mobility management. The analytical results demonstrate that the proposed scheme inherits the scalability and efficiency of NDN in the mobile Internet.

    This paper presents a theoretical analysis on the caching effects in urban vehicular ad hoc network scenarios. Quantitative relationship is found among the caching performance metric and network parameters including vehicle density and transmission range. And the vehicle mobility is also considered to predict the future caching effects. Simulations show that our theoretical model matches well with the simulated reality in different scenario settings.

    This paper proposed a Data Privacy Protective Mechanism for wireless body area networks. This mechanism combines symmetric key with an asymmetric key to transmit user's data (Sensor Nodes). Then, it cuts and reorganizes the data in the process of transmission to better capture defense and the attacks of the nodes (Master Nodes). Ultimately transmits these data securely under the condition that the data collected by the nodes are confidential and secure (Remote Server).

  4. Landmark-based device calibration and region-based modeling for RSS-based localization

    In this paper, we proposed an automatic device calibration process to overcome device diversity problem and a region-based modeling method to train a radio map. Unlike conventional calibration methods requiring manual data collection, our system could automatically collect pair-wise radio signal strength (RSS) samples between devices and train the RSS transform function without extra human power. In addition, the proposed modeling method well represents the effects of signal noise and dynamic obstacles. The experiments have shown that our system could provide robust tracking in particular applications.

  5. A multi-mode IFFT/FFT processor for IEEE 802.11ac: design and implementation

    This paper presents an efficient implementation for an IFFT/FFT processor that is compliant with IEEE 802.11ac specifications. The processor supports both uplink and downlink processing for multi-user system, where multiple antennas are utilized. A fully pipelined architecture supported by a word-length optimization algorithm enables this processor to achieve low power, reduced complexity, and high throughput. When evaluated and compared with similar designs, the processor is proven as a reliable and efficient design, and the processor implements all modes required by IEEE 802.11ac.
