|QOS Over ADSL||Praveen Reguraman||
Today's digital economy, dominated and driven by the growing commercial outlook of the Internet, has stimulated the demand for broadband networking as well as Quality of Service (QoS) architectures to achieve application performance and user satisfaction. Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) is gaining prominence as a cost-effective broadband access solution for high speed Internet access, being widely deployed nationwide. The promise and potential to handle applications like Video on Demand over ADSL has set the stage to engineer and evaluate QoS in ADSL systems. As a first step in this direction, the various issues applicable to QoS over ADSL are discussed and a test setup was developed to evaluate the QoS metrics with respect to the physical layer characteristics of ADSL systems. The results of the preliminary set of experiments and the insight gained from these will be presented along with recommendations for future work.

|Performance Evaluation of TCP over IEEE 802.11 WLANs||Sachin Goel||
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is a communication protocol that is used to provide reliable data delivery between hosts. As TCP is the most highly used transport-layer protocol, many have worked on addressing the issue of performance. Performance issues have been studied in various environments, especially when using 802.11 Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). Wireless networks are prone to a higher number of packets loss and corruption. 802.11 WLANs have an equivalently fast acknowledgement mechanism as TCP to ensure reliability of traffic over it. This duplication of functionality between TCP and 802.11 WLAN creates unexpected behaviors that can result in high costs in terms of overall performance. A significant amount of analytical and simulation work has been done in the past to study the behaviour of TCP over 802.11 WLANs. The main contribution of this work is the analysis of TCP interaction in an 802.11 WLAN topology by using real commercial-grade equipments. A testing methodology is designed to do the quantitative performance evaluation in a network topology consisted of wired as well as a wireless connection. The methodology contains test scenarios with different configurable settings on an Access Point (AP) and various controlled impairments in the network topology such as latency, packet drop, noise interference, etc. The performance of TCP is measured in terms of the throughput. This work provides a comprehensive set of experiments to study the behaviour of TCP over 802.11 WLANs. The results can provide insight into the performance cost associated with TCP traffic on 802.11 WLANs under different network environments and configurations on the AP. The results of this work thus have a value to equipment manufacturers and network operators.

|Overview of UNH EXS for Programmers||Robert Russell, Patrick MacArthur||
The Extended Sockets API (ES-API) is a specification published by the Open Group that defines extensions to the traditional socket API in order to provide asynchronous I/O and also memory registration for Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA). These two major new features enable programmers to take advantage of today's multi-core processors and RDMA network hardware, such as InfiniBand, iWARP and RoCE interfaces, in a convenient yet efficient manner.
