E. A. Akkoyunlu, K. Ekanadham, R. V. Huber
1975 ACM SIGOPS Operating Systems Review  
A number of properties and features of interprocess communication systems are presented, with emphasis on those necessary or desirable in a network environment.  ...  The interactlonsbetween these features are examlned, and the consequences of thelr incluslon in a system are explored.  ...  In order to localize the effects of changes in the network, the Remote Executive (REX) is designed as a separate module and forms the sole interface to the network.  ...

Energy-efficient wireless communications: tutorial, survey, and open issues

Geoffrey Li, Zhikun Xu, Cong Xiong, Chenyang Yang, Shunqing Zhang, Yan Chen, Shugong Xu
2011 IEEE wireless communications  
With explosive growth of high-data-rate applications, more and more energy is consumed in wireless networks to guarantee quality-of-service (QoS).  ...  Therefore, energy-efficient communications have been paid increasing attention under the background of limited energy resource and environmental-friendly transmission behaviors.  ...  Two sub-optimal communication schemes, common rate and common power schemes, are proposed to capture the inherent constraints of networks, bandwidth and energy.  ...

What a mesh

Animesh Nandi, Bobby Bhattacharjee, Peter Druschel
2009 Performance Evaluation Review  
Several CEM systems have been proposed and deployed, but the tradeoffs inherent in the different designs are not well understood.  ...  Based on our results, we conjecture that all CEM systems must abide by a set of fundamental design constraints, which we express in a simple model.  ...  Yet, the networking and systems community still lacks a fundamental understanding of the CEM design space.  ...
