ABSTRACT Self-similarity and scaling phenomena have dominated Internet traffic analysis for the past decade. With the identification of long-range dependence (LRD) in network traffic, the research community has undergone a mental shift from Poisson and memory-less processes to LRD and bursty processes. Despite its widespread use, though, LRD analysis is hindered by the difficulty of actually identifying dependence and estimating its parameters unambiguously. The authors outline LRD findings in network traffic and explore the current lack of accuracy and robustness in LRD estimation. In addition, they present recent evidence that packet arrivals appear to be in agreement with the Poisson assumption in the Internet core.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents an Ethernet based hybrid method for predicting random time-delay in the networked control system. First, db3 wavelet is used to decompose and reconstruct time-delay sequence, and the approximation component and detail components of time-delay sequences are figured out. Next, one step prediction of time-delay is obtained through echo state network (ESN) model and auto-regressive integrated moving average model (ARIMA) according to the different characteristics of approximate component and detail components. Then, the final predictive value of time-delay is obtained by summation. Meanwhile, the parameters of echo state network is optimized by genetic algorithm. The simulation results indicate that higher accuracy can be achieved through this prediction method.

    ABSTRACT: We overview studies of the natural variability of past climate, as seen from available proxy information, and its attribution to deterministic or stochastic controls. Furthermore, we characterize this variability over the widest possible range of scales that the available information allows, and we try to connect the deterministic Milankovitch cycles with the Hurst–Kolmogorov (HK) stochastic dynamics. To this aim, we analyse two instrumental series of global temperature and eight proxy series with varying lengths from 2 thousand to 500 million years. In our analysis, we use a simple tool, the climacogram, which is the logarithmic plot of standard deviation versus time scale, and its slope can be used to identify the presence of HK dynamics. By superimposing the climacograms of the different series, we obtain an impressive overview of the variability for time scales spanning almost nine orders of magnitude—from 1 month to 50 million years. An overall climacogram slope of −0.08 supports the presence of HK dynamics with Hurst coefficient of at least 0.92. The orbital forcing (Milankovitch cycles) is also evident in the combined climacogram at time scales between 10 and 100 thousand years. While orbital forcing favours predictability at the scales it acts, the overview of climate variability at all scales suggests a big picture of irregular change and uncertainty of Earth’s climate.

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this paper is to highlight the particularities of Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) traffic from a long-range dependence perspective. The application presented in this paper consists in the estimation of the quality of base stations (BS) positioning in the architecture of a WiMAX network. Analysing the traffic of the considered WiMAX network, with an original data mining methodology based on long-range dependence, we determine which BS have a correct position in the topology of the network and which BS have an incorrect position. These BS must be repositioned when the next session of the network maintenance will take place.
