Drones have been getting more and more popular in many economy sectors. Both scientific and industrial communities aim at making the impact of drones even more disruptive by empowering collaborative autonomous behaviors—also known as swarming behaviors—within fleets of multiple drones. In swarming-powered 3D mapping missions, unmanned aerial vehicl...

Article
The popularity of drones is rapidly increasing across the different sectors of the economy. Aerial capabilities and relatively low costs make drones the perfect solution to improve the efficiency of operations that are typically carried out by humans. Besides automating field operations, drones acting de facto as a swarm can serve as an ad hoc cl...
Article
The ability of TCP’s congestion control scheme to adapt the rate of traffic flows and fairly use all the available resources is one of the Internet’s pillars. So far, however, the elasticity of traffic has been disregarded in traffic engineering (TE) methodologies mainly because, only recently, the increase in access capacity has moved the bottlene...
Preprint
The popularity of drones is rapidly increasing across the different sectors of the economy. Aerial capabilities and relatively low costs make drones the perfect solution to improve the efficiency of those operations that are typically carried out by humans (e.g., building inspection, photo collection). The potential of drone applications can be pus...
Article
Robust optimization is a powerful means to handle optimization problems where there is a set of parameters that are uncertain. The effectiveness of the method is especially noticeable when these parameters are only known to lie inside some uncertainty region. Unfortunately, there are important computational considerations that have prevented the me...
Article
The widespread proliferation of Internet and wireless applications has produced a significant increase of ICT energy footprint. As a response, in the last five years, significant efforts have been undertaken to include energy-awareness into network management. Several green networking frameworks have been proposed by carefully managing the network...
Article
Despite the growing concern for the energy consumption of the Internet, green strategies for network and traffic management cannot undermine Quality of Service (QoS) and network survivability. In particular, two very important issues that may be affected by green networking techniques are resilience to node and link failures, and robustness to traf...
Article
Full-text available
Despite the growing necessity to make Internet greener, it is worth pointing out that energy-aware strategies to minimize network energy consumption must not undermine the normal network operation. In particular, two very important issues that may limit the application of green networking techniques concern, respectively, network survivability, i.e...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper we present a novel experi- mental platform for network management able to dy- namically optimize the energy consumption of back- bone IP networks operating with OSPF. The idea is to efficiently adjust link weights to put to sleep idle devices. The framework relies on multiple pre- computed sets of link weights that are applied to the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
n recent years, there has been a remark- able growth of the Internet energy consumption, which is expected to persist in the future at an even higher pace. At the same time the network access capacity of individual subscribers is rapidly reaching values high enough to move the traffic bottleneck from the access network to the core network in most s...
Article
Full-text available
We propose a novel way to consider the max-min fairness (MMF) paradigm in traffic engineering. Since MMF appears as a reference model for a fair capacity allocation when the traffic flows are elastic and rates are adapted based on resource availability, we consider it as a requirement due to the way resources are shared by the distributed rate cont...
Article
Fair allocation of flows in multicommodity networks has been attracting a growing attention. In Max-Min Fair (MMF) flow allocation, not only the flow of the commodity with the smallest allocation is maximized but also, in turn, the second smallest, the third smallest, and so on. Since the MMF paradigm allows to approximate the TCP flow allocation w...
Article
Full-text available
Recent data confirm that the power consumption of the information and communications technologies (ICT) and of the Internet itself can no longer be ignored, considering the increasing pervasiveness and the importance of the sector on productivity and economic growth. Although the traffic load of communication networks varies greatly over time and r...
Article
Internet energy consumption is rapidly becoming a critical issue due to the exponential traffic growth and the rapid expansion of communication infrastructures worldwide. We address the problem of energy-aware intra-domain traffic engineering in networks operated with a shortest path routing protocol. We consider the problem of switching off (putti...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A robust multi-period model is proposed to minimize the energy consumption of IP networks, while guaranteeing the satisfaction of uncertain traffic demands. Energy savings are achieved by putting into sleep mode cards and chassis. The study of the solution robustness shows that there is a trade-off between energy consumption and the solutions conse...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper we consider the problem of minimizing the energy consumption of IP networks, exploiting the traffic variations over a set of time intervals, while guaranteeing the network QoS and survivability. Energy savings are achieved by putting into sleep mode cards and chassis, when they are not necessary. Network survivability is based on a de...
Article
We propose an energy management framework to optimize the energy consumption of networks using the Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol such as Carrier Grade Ethernet networks. The objective is to minimize the energy consumption of nodes and links while considering QoS constraints. The energy management is done through the Multiple Spanning Tree Protoco...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We propose a multi-period model to minimize the energy consumption of IP networks while guaranteeing the satisfaction of all the traffic demands. Energy savings are achieved by putting into sleep mode cards and chassis. The multi-period optimization is constrained by inter-period limitations necessary to guarantee the stability of the networks. Bot...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper addresses the problem of minimizing the energy consumption of IP networks. As traffic demands vary over time, energy savings are achieved by adapting traffic routing and node and link sleeping patterns while guaranteeing QoS and survivability requirements. Network survivability is based on shared protection for single link failures. The...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Internet energy consumption is rapidly becoming an issue due to the exponential traffic growth and the rapid expansion of communication infrastructures worldwide. In this paper we propose an off-line IP traffic engineering approach that allows to adapt the network energy consumption to different daily traffic scenarios (e.g., night, morning), by sw...
