Network Calculus: from theory to practical implementation

  • Bouillard A.
  • Boyer M.
  • Le Corronc E.

The idea to write a document gathering existing results of network calculus stems from the French-founded project PEGASE (2010-2013). It took several years to write a complete book. During these years, we benefited from the support of many colleagues and friends, specially at ONERA and LINCS. We would like to thank Éric Thierry, for the fruitful discussion we constantly had with and that co-authored many contributions we present in this book. We also would like to acknowledge another co-author, Laurent Jouhet, from whom we took the idea of the Section 1.3 "Network Calculus in four pages". One of our objectives in writing this book was to clarify some aspects of Network calculus. In particular, we would like to thank Guillaume Dufour, who is the initial author of the proofs of continuity insensitivity of Paragraph 6.3.3.3, as well as Thomas Calbas, for his preliminary work on the EDF service policy of Section 8.3.4 and Jörg Liebeherr, whose feedback on EDF was very valuable. Finally, we would like to thank the colleagues that read preliminary version of the book for their support and valuable comments. Cédric Mauclair, who reviewed a very preliminary version of the book, and Pierre Roux, Élie de Panafieu and Jean-Yves Le Boudec who reviewed some quite final version of this book. 11

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • Sharma S.

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

  • Wang H.
  • Wu Q.

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
