  • Application-Level QoS: Improving video conferencing quality through sending the best packet next

    McDonald, Ian; Nelson, Richard (IEEE, 2008)
    In a traditional network stack, data from an application is transmitted in the order that it is received. An algorithm is proposed where information about the priority of packets and expiry times is used by the transport ...
  • Cardigan: deploying a distributed routing fabric

    Stringer, Jonathan Philip; Fu, Qiang; Lorier, Christopher; Nelson, Richard; Rothenberg, Christian Esteve (ACM, 2013)
    SDN is an active area for network research, with many organisations exploring the opportunities provided by the de-coupling of network control from packet forwarding. Previous work has suggested that a hybrid networking ...
  • Cardigan: SDN distributed routing fabric going live at an Internet exchange

    Stringer, Jonathan; Pemberton, Dean; Fu, Qiang; Lorier, Christopher; Nelson, Richard; Bailey, Josh; Corrêa, Carlos N.A.; Rothenberg, Christian Esteve (IEEE, 2014)
    Software Defined Networking (SDN) is an active area for network research, with many organizations exploring the opportunities provided by the decoupling of network control from packet forwarding. However, questions remain ...
  • Comparing anomaly detection methods in computer networks

    Löf, Andreas; Nelson, Richard (IEEE Computer Society, 2010)
    This work in progress outlines a comparison of anomaly detection methods that we are undertaking. We are comparing different types of anomaly detection methods with the purpose of achieving results covering a broad spectrum ...
  • Libtrace: A packet capture and analysis library

    Alcock, Shane; Lorier, Perry; Nelson, Richard (ACM, 2012)
    This paper introduces libtrace, an open-source software library for reading and writing network packet traces. Libtrace offers performance and usability enhancements compared to other libraries that are currently used. We ...

  • Implementing Internet topology analysis with emphasis on load balancers and using large numbers of vantage points

    Eichler, Stephen John (University of Waikato, 2016)
    This thesis describes a study of load balancing and topology discovery in the Internet. Topology data was collected using variants of Traceroute including Traceroute MDA which provides topology information about load ...
  • RheaFlow: An Improved Software Defined Network Router

    Fayomi, Oladimeji Onaopepo (University of Waikato, 2016)
    An Software Defined Networking (SDN) router translates routing information from a standard routing control plane into forwarding decisions on an SDN-enabled device. This thesis presents the design of RheaFlow an SDN router ...
  • A Scalable and Fault Tolerant OpenFlow Controller

    Sharma, Karthik Neelakanta (University of Waikato, 2015)
    OpenFlow provides a protocol for updating flow tables in switches. Most current OpenFlow deployments rely on a single controller to control all switches. However, as the number and size of production networks deploying ...
  • Techniques for Failure Recovery in a Software-Defined Network

    Lorier, Christopher (University of Waikato, 2014)
    As our lives become ever more dependent on network connectivity, it becomes increasingly more important for networks to be able to overcome the failure of individual components and continue to function. This thesis examines ...
  • Rating the Significance of Detected Network Events

    Mungro, Meenakshee (University of Waikato, 2014)
    Existing anomaly detection systems do not reliably produce accurate severity ratings for detected network events, which results in network operators wasting a large amount of time and effort in investigating false alarms. ...
