Abstract [en]

Today's research on Quality of Experience (QoE) mainly addresses multimedia services. With the introduction of the Internet of Things (IoT), there is a need for new ways of evaluating the QoE. Emerging IoT services, such as autonomous vehicles (AVs), are more complex and involve additional quality requirements, such as those related to machine-to-machine communication that enables self-driving. In fully autonomous cases, it is the intelligent machines operating the vehicles. Thus, it is not clear how intelligent machines will impact end-user QoE, but also how end users can alter and affect a self-driving vehicle. This article argues for a paradigm shift in the QoE area to cover the relationship between humans and intelligent machines. We introduce the term Quality of IoT-experience (QoIoT) within the context of AV, where the quality evaluation, besides end users, considers quantifying the perspectives of intelligent machines with objective metrics. Hence, we propose a novel architecture that considers Quality of Data (QoD), Quality of Network (QoN), and Quality of Context (QoC) to determine the overall QoIoT in the context of AVs. Finally, we present a case study to illustrate the use of QoIoT.

Abstract [en]

The Internet of Things (IoT) brings a set of unique and complex challenges to the field of Quality of Experience (QoE) evaluation. The state-of-the-art research in QoE mainly targets multimedia services, such as voice, video, and the Web, to determine quality perceived by end-users. Therein, main evaluation metrics involve subjective and objective human factors and network quality factors. Emerging IoT may also include intelligent machines within services, such as health-care, logistics, and manufacturing. The integration of new technologies such as machine-to-machine communications and artificial intelligence within IoT services may lead to service quality degradation caused by machines. In this article, we argue that evaluating QoE in the IoT services should also involve novel metrics for measuring the performance of the machines alongside metrics for end-users' QoE. This article extends the legacy QoE definition in the area of IoT and defines conceptual metrics for evaluating QoE using an industrial IoT case study.

Abstract [en]

Microservices have emerged as a new approach for developing and deploying cloud applications that require higher levels of agility, scale, and reliability. To this end, a microservice-based cloud application architecture advocates decomposition of monolithic application components into independent software components called "microservices". As the independent microservices can be developed, deployed, and updated independently of each other, it leads to complex run-time performance monitoring and management challenges. To solve this problem, we propose a generic monitoring framework, Multi-microservices Multi-virtualization Multi-cloud (M3) that monitors the performance of microservices deployed across heterogeneous virtualization platforms in a multi-cloud environment. We validated the efficacy and efficiency of M3 using a Book-Shop application executing across AWS and Azure.

Abstract [en]

The use of video streaming services are increasing in the cellular networks, inferring a need to monitor video quality to meet users' Quality of Experience (QoE). The so-called no-reference (NR) models for estimating video quality metrics mainly rely on packet-header and bitstream information. However, there are situations where the availability of such information is limited due to tighten security and encryption, which necessitates exploration of alternative parameters for conducting video QoE assessment. In this study we collect real-live in-smartphone measurements describing the radio link of the LTE connection while streaming reference videos in uplink. The radio measurements include metrics such as RSSI, RSRP, RSRQ, and CINR. We then use these radio metrics to train a Random Forrest machine learning model against calculated video quality metrics from the reference videos. The aim is to estimate the Mean Opinion Score (MOS), PSNR, Frame delay, Frame skips, and Blurriness. Our result show 94% classification accuracy, and 85% model accuracy (R 2 value) when predicting the MOS using regression. Correspondingly, we achieve 89%, 84%, 85%, and 82% classification accuracy when predicting PSNR, Frame delay, Frame Skips, and Blurriness respectively. Further, we achieve 81%, 77%, 79%, and 75% model accuracy (R 2 value) regarding the same parameters using regression.

Abstract [en]

In pursuit of effective service level agreement (SLA) monitoring and enforcement in the context of Internet of Things (IoT) applications, this article regards SLA management as a distrusted process that should not be handled by a single authority. Here, we aim to justify our view on the matter and propose a conceptual blockchain-based framework to cope with some limitations associated with traditional SLA management approaches.

Abstract [en]

It is the era of information explosion and overload. The recommender systems can help people quickly get the expected information when facing the enormous data flood. Therefore, researchers in both industry and academia are also paying more attention to this area. The Collaborative Filtering Algorithm (CF) is one of the most widely used algorithms in recommender systems. However, it has difficulty in dealing with the problems of sparsity and scalability of data. This paper presents Category Preferred Canopy-K-means based Collaborative Filtering Algorithm (CPCKCF) to solve the challenges of sparsity and scalability of data. In particular, CPCKCF proposes the definition of the User-Item Category Preferred Ratio (UICPR), and use it to compute the UICPR matrix. The results can be applied to cluster the user data and find the nearest users to obtain prediction ratings. Our experimentation results performed using the MovieLens dataset demonstrates that compared with traditional user-based Collaborative Filtering algorithm, the proposed CPCKCF algorithm proposed in this paper improved computational efficiency and recommendation accuracy by 2.81%.

Abstract [en]

Cloud computing provides on-demand access to affordable hardware (e.g., multi-core CPUs, GPUs, disks, and networking equipment) and software (e.g., databases, application servers and data processing frameworks) platforms with features such as elasticity, pay-per-use, low upfront investment and low time to market. This has led to the proliferation of business critical applications that leverage various cloud platforms. Such applications hosted on single/multiple cloud provider platforms have diverse characteristics requiring extensive monitoring and benchmarking mechanisms to ensure run-time Quality of Service (QoS) (e.g., latency and throughput). This paper proposes, develops and validates CLAMBS—Cross-Layer Multi Cloud Application Monitoring and Benchmarking as-a-Service for efficient QoS monitoring and benchmarking of cloud applications hosted on multi-clouds environments. The major highlight of CLAMBS is its capability of monitoring and benchmarking individual application components such as databases and web servers, distributed across cloud layers (*-aaS), spread among multiple cloud providers. We validate CLAMBS using prototype implementation and extensive experimentation and show that CLAMBS efficiently monitors and benchmarks application components on multi-cloud platforms including Amazon EC2 and Microsoft Azure.

Abstract [en]

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) integrate cyber-infrastructure comprising computers and networks with physical processes. The cyber components monitor, control, and coordinate the physical processes typically via actuators. As CPS are characterized by reliability, availability, and performance, they are expected to have a tremendous impact not only on industrial systems but also in our daily lives. We have started to witness the emergence of cloud-based CPS. However, cloud systems are prone to stochastic conditions that may lead to quality of service degradation. In this paper, we propose M2CPA - a novel framework for multi-virtualization, and multi-cloud monitoring in cloud-based cyber-physical systems. M2CPA monitors the performance of application components running inside multiple virtualization platforms deployed on multiple clouds. M2CPA is validated through extensive experimental analysis using a real testbed comprising multiple public clouds and multi-virtualization technologies.

Abstract [en]

The Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) extends the functionality provided by Software-Defined Networking (SDN). It is a virtualization technology that aims to replace the functionality provided by traditional networking hardware using software solutions. Thereby, enabling cheaper and efficient network deployment and management. The use of NFV and SDN is anticipated to enhance the performance of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds. However, due to the presence of a large number of network devices in IaaS clouds offering a plethora of networked services, there is need to develop a traffic monitoring system for the efficient network. This paper proposes and validates an extensible SDN and NFV-enabled network traffic monitoring system. Using extensive experiments, we show that the proposed system can closely match the performance of traditional networks at cheaper costs and by adding more flexibility to network management tasks.
