AbstractThe 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.

The Implications for Network Recorder Design in a Networked Flight Test Instrumentation Data Acquisition SystemCranley, Nikki; ACRA Control (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2011-10)The higher bandwidth capacities available with the adoption of Ethernet technology for networked FTI data acquisition systems enable more data to be acquired. However, this puts increased demands on the network recorder to be able to support such data rates. During any given flight, the network recorder may log hundreds of GigaBytes of data, which must be processed and analyzed in real-time or in post-flight. This paper describes several approaches that may be adopted to facilitate data-on-demand data mining and data reduction operations. In particular, the use of filtering and indexing techniques that may be adopted to address this challenge are described.
Design and simulation of a network interface unit for a fiber optic PACS network using VHDLMartinez, Ralph; Lindsey, Michael Karel, 1963- (The University of Arizona., 1989)This paper describes the design and simulation of a network interface unit (NIU) for a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) network called PACnet. PACnet is a dual fiber optic ring network under development at the Computer Engineering Research Laboratory of the University of Arizona. This network integrates voice, data, and image communications in a hospital environment and supports a throughput rate between 200-500 megabits per second. At each node in the network, an NIU implements the Data Link Layer and Physical Layer protocols of PACnet. The initial network interface unit design for PACnet was a functional description of NIU protocols and major components. In order to construct a demonstration prototype of PACnet,the NIU description must be refined and an architecture must be specified. The NIU design is specified and simulated using the hardware description language VHDL. Simulation results provide information on NIU timing characteristics and logic families required to implement the NIU.
Internetworking the defense data network with an integrated services digital networkSchooley, Larry C.; Christoffersen, Daniel Arthur, 1964- (The University of Arizona., 1988)The motivation behind this thesis is to develop a procedure for internetworking the Defense Data Network (DDN) with an Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN). To accomplish this internetworking problem an integrated gateway must be designed to compensate for incompatibilities between the two networks. This thesis approaches this problem by giving a description of the two networks, DDN and ISDN, and also presenting a general approach to gateway design. This information is then combined into a detailed procedure for implementing a gateway to internetwork the DDN and ISDN. This is followed by a discussion of the practical aspects of the DDN/ISDN internetworking problem.
