  • Comparison of Layer 2 VPN Services (E-Line) transported over MPLS networks. (Academic Research)
    Jun 2014 - Dec 2014
    As Independent Study - SZABIST, Karachi, Pakistan
    Ethernet is no more limited to LAN only and it has been very common practice by large telecom operators to deploy Ethernet for their WAN services as well. The obvious advantages of using Ethernet for carrier class networks is its simplicity, low cost, guaranteed QoS, reliability and scalability among other benefits. Carrier class Ethernet can run over various transport technologies including SDH, DHDM, Q-in-Q and MPLS. MPLS is widely used by almost all large operators around the world due to its obvious benefits. While Using MPLS transport network, an operator can choose between VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Service) and VPWS (Virtual Private Wire Service) for providing reliable layer 2 VPN Services to its customers. A common inquiry does arise by customers requiring point-to-point service about section between VPLS and VPWS. This study (IS) is targeted to answer this question by performing enhanced comparison between two options. This study will use several parameters like throughput, packet loss, response time, resources utilization, bandwidth utilization, etc. in order to make a judgment between two. Hopefully this study will assist telecom operators in making better decision.
  • Performance Evaluation of Reactive, Proactive and Hybrid routing protocols in MANET. (Academic Research)
    Jan 2013 - Jun 2013
    As Independent Study - SZABIST, Karachi, Pakistan
    A Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of self organized wireless mobile nodes dynamically forming a temporary network without the aid of any fixed and physical infrastructure and centralized administration control stations. The main difference between Wireless ad-hoc network and Mobile Ad hoc network is moving of nodes (mobility) in the network with variation of speed. Every node in MANET moves arbitrarily making the multi-hop network topology to change randomly at unpredictable times. Its a challenging task for MANET to control Network topology in dynamically movement of nodes. One of the distinctive features of MANET is designed as each node must be able to act as a router to find out the optimal path to forward a packet. To find optimal path, an efficient routing algorithm required. The main differences in routing protocol mechanism can define by measurable amount of variation in performance. The main purpose of this network is to provide a rapid means of communication, computing and applications.

  • Performance Evaluation of Reactive, Proactive and Hybrid routing protocols in MANET
    (Articles presented as prestigious conferences)
    Jun 2013
    Author(s): Kashif Manzoor
    Publisher: JISR SZABIST, Karachi, Pakistan
    A mobile Ad Hoc network is a decentralized communication of self configured wireless ad hoc network without any fixed or physical infrastructure. Many routing protocol support MANET to communicate but it’s become challenging task when there is movement of nodes, so that each node enters and leave the network and makes change in networks environment. Each node must act as router to route packet from source to destination. This paper is intended to a performance comparison of proactive routing protocol (AODV, DSR), reactive routing protocol (DSDV, DSR) and Hybrid routing protocol (ZRP) in terms of end-to- end delay, average jitter, average throughput, packet delivery ratio and Normalized Routing Load with different number of nodes. Simulation is performed in NS2 simulator Linux based.
