High-level distribution for the rapid production of robust telecoms software: comparing C++ and ERLANG

J. H. Nyström, P. W. Trinder, D. J. King
2008 Concurrency and Computation  
Erlang interoperates at low cost with conventional technologies, allowing incremental reengineering of large distributed systems.  ...  Investigating the potential advantages of the high-level Erlang technology shows that two significant benefits are realised.  ...  It is straightforward to deduce that for the DM, as with most distributed applications, computation speed does not limit performance, but rather performance is dominated by communication and process management  ...

Evaluating distributed functional languages for telecommunications software

J. H. Nyström, P. W. Trinder, D. J. King
2003 Proceedings of the 2003 ACM SIGPLAN workshop on Erlang - ERLANG '03  
The Erlang and GdH implementations of the applications will be compared with existing C++/CORBA and Java/JINI implementations.  ...  High level programming languages have the potential to reduce development time and improve maintainability due to their compact code size.  ...  High Level Programming: using high level programming paradigms in application development releases the programmer from dealing with awkward, low level, technical issues such as memory management and communication  ...

RELEASE: A High-Level Paradigm for Reliable Large-Scale Server Software [chapter]

Olivier Boudeville, Francesco Cesarini, Natalia Chechina, Kenneth Lundin, Nikolaos Papaspyrou, Konstantinos Sagonas, Simon Thompson, Phil Trinder, Ulf Wiger
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In the RELEASE project the Erlang model is extended to Scalable Distributed Erlang -SD Erlang -supporting general-purpose computation in massively multicore systems.  ...  Erlang provides a fault-tolerant, reliable model for building concurrent, distributed system based on functional programming.  ...  This form of computation is ubiquitous, in contrast to more specialised forms such as traditional high-performance computing.  ...

Erlang meets WSNs: A functional approach to WSN programming

Alessandro Sivieri
2012 2012 IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Computing and Communications Workshops  
In this work we claim that Erlang, a concurrency-oriented functional language, could greatly reduce the complexity of designing this kind of applications, while at the same favouring sound engineering  ...  At the same time, while being a high-level language, Erlang does not forget it was designed with embedded systems in mind.  ...  We are performing also some tests using common WSN algorithms for data propagation and collection, comparing Erlang implementations with others developed using some of the most used WSN platforms (i.e.  ...

Introducing Concurrent Functional Programming in the Telecommunications Industry [chapter]

Bjarne Däcker
2001 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Erlang was developed at Ericsson and is used for several large and important telecom systems. It is also available externally, both supported and through open source.  ...  Erlang provides a highly relevant case-study of technology diffusion since its development touches upon many relevant topics such as applied research in the industrial environment and spread of technology  ...  Two alternative implementation projects, ETOS (Erlang TO Scheme) at l'Universite de Montreal and HiPE (High Performance Erlang) [12] -Some external users came as an effect of encountering Erlang at  ...

2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
-Redundancy degree, e.g. how many simultaneous copies of the system state can be maintained without impairing performance?  ...  High level languages are concise and hence potentially enable the fast production of maintainable software.  ...  Erlang is open-source and supported by commercial training courses and technical support, an international user conference together with books and online reference material.  ...

Introductory Guide To Message Passing In Distributed Systems

Florian Willich
2015 Zenodo  
The program ming language Erlang natively supports an asynchronous message passing model which makes the implementation of concurrent applications transparent to the software developer.  ...  Nevertheless, providing a well defined interface to control exactly how messages are passed regains the ability to write High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications.  ...  The Message-Passing Interface (MPI) is a message-passing library interface specification, created for high performance and scalable distributed systems where high-efficiency is needed.  ...

Traffic Modeling in Mobile Communication Networks

Osahenvemwen O.A., Edeko F.O., Emagbetere J.
2012 International Journal of Computer Applications  
The high number of block calls experience in mobile network, especially during the busy-hour as leads to poor Quality of Service (QOS) delivering in mobile network.  ...  The block calls experience in mobile network should be reduced (in line with NCC recommended value 2%) to a certain low values, to ensure good QOS.  ...  Fig 11 calls handover blocking probability with low traffic load in erlang(A). Fig Fig 12 calls handover blocking probability with high number of traffic load in erlang(A).  ...

The tool has been used for analyzing a large-scale urban traffic simulation system running on a cluster of 20 computing nodes.  ...  Such tools can help identify the causes of unwanted states, which is hardly possible with a static analysis or metrics-based approach.  ...  The computer was run under the control of Linux OS and used Erlang 19.3 . The integration of the ErlangPL with the traffic-simulation systems was straightforward.  ...

Daniel Luna, Mikael Pettersson, Konstantinos Sagonas
2004 Proceedings of the 2004 ACM SIGPLAN workshop on Erlang - ERLANG '04  
Even though Erlang/OTP is by default based on a virtual machine interpreter, it nowadays also includes the HiPE (High Performance Erlang) native code compiler as a fully integrated component.  ...  We discuss technical issues that had to be addressed when developing the port, decisions we took and why, and report on the speedups (compared with BEAM) which HiPE/AMD64 achieves across a range of Erlang  ...  A medium-sized benchmark (≈ 1, 100 lines). estone Computes an Erlang system's Estone ranking by running a number of common Erlang tasks and reporting a weighted ranking of its performance on these tasks  ...
