    • Passive traffic characterization and analysis in heterogeneous IP networks 

      Thorkildssen, Håvard Wik (Høgskolen i Oslo. Avdeling for ingeniørutdanningUniversitetet i Oslo, 2005)
      In this thesis we revisit a handful of well-known experiments, using modern tools, to see if results yielded from earlier experiments are valid for today’s heterogeneous networks. The traffic properties we look at are ...
    • Traffic classification with passive measurement 

      Pham, Phong Hoang (Høgskolen i Oslo. Avdeling for ingeniørutdanningUniversitetet i Oslo, 2005)
      This is a master thesis from a collaboration between Oslo University College and Uninett Research. Uninett have a passive monitoring device on a 2.5 Gbps backbone link between Trondheim and Narvik. They uses measurement ...
    • Retrivability of data in ad-hoc backup 

      Aspelund, Trond (Høgskolen i Oslo. Avdeling for ingeniørutdanningUniversitetet i Oslo, 2005)
      This master thesis looks at aspects with backup of data and restore in ad-hoc networks. Ad-hoc networks are networks made between arbitrary nodes without any form of infrastructure or central control. Backup in such ...
    • High speed network sampling 

      Rindalsholt, Ole Arild (Høgskolen i Oslo. Avdeling for ingeniørutdanningUniversitetet i Oslo, 2005)
      Classical Sampling methods play an important role in the current practice of Internet measurement. With today’s high speed networks, routers cannot manage to generate complete Netflow data for every packet. They have ...
    • Traffic characteristics and queueing theory : implications and applications to web server systems 

      Bjørnstad, Jon Henrik (Høgskolen i Oslo. Avdeling for ingeniørutdanningUniversitetet i Oslo, 2006)
      Businesses rely increasingly on Internet services as the basis of their income. Downtime and poor performance of such services can therefore be directly translated into loss of revenue. In order to plan and design services ...
    • Monitoring Changes in the Stability of Networks Using Eigenvector Centrality 

      Bytyci, Ilir (Høgskolen i Oslo. Avdeling for ingeniørutdanningUniversitetet i Oslo, 2006)
      Monitoring networks for anomalies is a typical duty of network operators. The conventional monitoring tools available today tend to almost ignore the topological characteristics of the whole network. This thesis takes a ...
    • Wireless security and user attitude in SOHO environments 

      Santucci, Ugo (Høgskolen i Oslo. Avdeling for ingeniørutdanningUniversitetet i Oslo, 2006)
      Wireless telecommunications networks have been one of the outstanding success stories over the last decade or so. Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) are reaching the same success in a very short time.[1] Corporate and ...
