AbstractThe description of a Network Management Package (NMP) for Packet Communications Units (PCUs) in a Local Area Network (LAN) is presented. The LAN consists of a Sytek LocalNet 20, a Sytek System 2000, a Sytek System 6000, and a Concord Data Systems Token/Net. The NMP accesses and controls the local and remote PCUs on the networks. The communication interface software module is responsible for opening and closing the session between the PC and PCU ports. The NMP supports a set of operations used by a network manager to control and manage the network PCUs. The user uses the NMP to integrate each PCU and check and set its attributes. The NMP was developed to run in the Computer Engineering Research Laboratory and in the University of Arizona broadband cable plant. The NMP allows different PCUs (local or remote) to check and modify PCU's attributes while users work on their own PCUs. (Abstract shortened with permission of author.)

Dynamics of Advice Network and Knowledge Contribution: A Longitudinal Social Network AnalysisLee, Changheon (The University of Arizona., 2012)Online communities have become an increasingly popular channel for social interaction, enabling knowledge and opinion sharing across a board range of topics and contexts. Their viability and sustainability depends largely on contributions from community members in terms of time, resources, and knowledge. However, how individuals' knowledge contribution behavior changes over time and what network structural characteristics influence individuals' contribution behavior is not well understood. This study investigates "co-evolution" of social networks (i.e. advice network) and knowledge contribution behavior thorough a lens of social selection and social influence mechanism. This study are particularly interested in examining the dynamics of the advice network ties and the knowledge contribution behavior in the context of virtual financial communities in which people voluntarily participate to exchanges investing-related information. Unlike popular friendship-based online social networks, virtual financial communities in this study enables members to construct their own advice network by adding, maintaining, or terminating advice ties. Changes in network ties are referred to as social selection, while changes in individuals' behavior in response to the current network position are referred to as social influence. Dynamic network modeling is applied to investigate effects of social selection and influence separately and then examine the interplay between social selection and behavioral influence. Examination of such effects both separately and simultaneously requires a longitudinal data that capture dynamic changes in both the advice ties and the behavior under study.
Named Data Networking in Local Area NetworksShi, Junxiao (The University of Arizona., 2017)The Named Data Networking (NDN) is a new Internet architecture that changes the network semantic from packet delivery to content retrieval and promises benefits in areas such as content distribution, security, mobility support, and application development. While the basic NDN architecture applies to any network environment, local area networks (LANs) are of particular interest because of their prevalence on the Internet and the relatively low barrier to deployment. In this dissertation, I design NDN protocols and implement NDN software, to make NDN communication in LAN robust and efficient. My contributions include: (a) a forwarding behavior specification required on every NDN node; (b) a secure and efficient self-learning strategy for switched Ethernet, which discovers available contents via occasional flooding, so that the network can operate without manual configuration, and does not require a routing protocol or a centralized controller; (c) NDN-NIC, a network interface card that performs name-based packet filtering, to reduce CPU overhead and power consumption of the main system during broadcast communication on shared media; (d) the NDN Link Protocol (NDNLP), which allows the forwarding plane to add hop-by-hop headers, and provides a fragmentation-reassembly feature so that large NDN packets can be sent directly over Ethernet with limited MTU.
AN EVALUATION OF TERRESTRIAL WIRELESS NETWORK MODELING APPROACHES FOR THE SPACE MOBILE NETWORKNewton, Todd A.; Roberts, Christopher J.; Fletcher, Gregory G.; Rossiter, Daniel S.; Southwest Research Institute®; NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2017-10)The Space Mobile Network (SMN) is NASA’s next generation architecture concept for communications services between ground and space-based assets. The SMN calls for a paradigm shift in space communications. The transition will move from an approach based on static, preplanned communications over point-to-point channels to a dynamic, event-driven, and network-based approach that facilitates service-oriented communications. In doing so, the SMN is able to leverage some concepts and technologies present in today’s terrestrial wireless networks, while others must be extended or adapted to the space communications domain. This paper provides background on key SMN architectural concepts and an evaluation of the suitability of terrestrial wireless network modeling tools to be used and applied for proving out SMN concepts.
