The Effect of VoIP Payload Size on Upload Delay Values in HSPA and HSPA+ Mobile Networks

Viktor Rebay, Sandor Jenei

Voice over IP is a more and more popular way of communication, because people can use it for long distances with very low cost. The importance of mobile broadband is also increasing, since the need for immediate information access is bigger than ever. We can combine these fields, and use VoIP in mobile data networks, but because of the QoS needs, we have to consider some problems or limitations. In this paper we examined the connection between delay, as one of the most important QoS parameter, and the used VoIP codec, the payload size, and the mobile broadband technology in HSDPA and HSPA+ data networks. We found strong connection between these parameters in upload, but no relation in download direction. Full Paper

Mental Tasks Classification from Electroencephalogram (EEG) Signal Using Gabor Based Matching Pursuit (MP)

Zin Mar Lwin, Mie Mie Thaw

Brain Computer Interface (BCI) Systems have developed for people who are suffer from severe motor disabilities and difficult to communicate with their environment. BCI let them for communication by non muscular way. For communication between human and computer, BCI uses a type of signal called Electroencephalogram (EEG) signal which are recorded from the human’s brain by mean of electrode. Electroencephalogram (EEG) signal is an important information source for knowing brain processes for the non-invasive BCI. Translating human’s thought, it needs to classify acquired EEG signal accurately. This paper proposed a typical EEG signal classification system which experiments the Mental Tasks Dataset. Independent Component analysis (ICA) method via EEGLab Tools is used for removing artifacts which are caused by eye blinks. For features extraction, the Time and Frequency features of non stationary EEG signals are extracted by Matching Pursuit (MP) algorithm. The classification of one of five mental tasks is performed by Multi_Class Support Vector Machine (SVM). For SVMs, the comparisons have been performed for both 1-against-1 and 1-against-all methods.

‘ICT in Education’ in the Government Institutions in India: Acceptability Issues Associated with the Technology Shift

Amit Kumar, Tanvir Singh, Dr Sawtantar Singh Khurmi

ICT (Information and Communication Technology) has become a buzzword while talking about technology and its applications in the Education Sector in India. The credit goes to the paradigm shift in curriculum where teacher acts as a facilitator in a student centered learning and various ICT tools are supplemented to make the teaching-learning process effective. The government has been introducing some of its pilot projects in the public sector schools and colleges where it can exercise its power freely. The projects involve a lot of public money and documentation but we are yet to see any real implementation of the same. There is a huge difference in drafting a policy on paper and actually implementing it in the practical field. CIET (Central Institute of Educational Technology), NCERT (National Centre for Education, Research and Training), New Delhi has introduced ‘ICT in Education Curriculum’ in 2014 as a pilot project through NVS (Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti), Noida and IIT Bombay has also been working for last few years on bridging the digital divide in Indian Schools, Colleges and Universities through ‘Spoken Tutorial’ project. Both the projects are funded by MHRD (Ministry of Human Resource Development), Government of India. Both the projects are based upon technology shift paradigm i.e. FOSS (Free and Open Source Software). The idea is really good and has a positive thought process behind it to educate the next generation about the alternate technology which is free and not virus prone. We have been educating our students on software platforms offered by proprietors for a long time now, even when a free and open source platform co-exists. In fact, the current generation does not know about such alternate technology. It’s not a rebellion or an offensive attitude but it is just ignorance about a parallel technology. If it is the case with the common people then how can we ignore the educators or teachers who are going to disseminate the knowledge pertaining to FOSS to the next generation? Therefore, the Educators are needed to be properly re-educated about the FOSS at national level before expecting an implementation of the technology shift. This is not only about learning and teaching a new technology but it is more about changing the thought process of the current and the next generation. Hence, the issue of acceptability of the technology shifts from proprietary software to FOSS is very critical and should be handled in a sensitive manner rather than dictating the terms to the educators. But we have been observing that the documentation regarding implementation of ‘ICT in Education’ is a long way away from the facts. As per ongoing research, it has been observed that there is a big gap between the theoretical and practical situation. The national level government institutions like NCERT should ponder upon the situation again to restructure the process of extending the technology shift project to the masses. This paradigm shift should not be looked as just a change in curriculum but a change in the thought process of the educators as well as the learners. Full Paper

Simulation of Probability of False Alarm and Probability of Detection Using Energy Detection in Coginitive Radio

Er. Kirti Arora, Prof T.L Sngal, Er.Tulika Mehta

The rapid growth of wireless devices and application has contributed to huge demand for licensed and unlicensed frequency spectrum. However, recent studies exhibits that restricted spectrum assignment policy results in congestion for spectrum utilization under which considerable portion of the licensed spectrum is severely under-utilized. To address this problem, Cognitive radio is a paradigm for wireless communication in which network or a node changes its transmission and receiver parameters in order to communicate effectively and avoiding interference with licensed or unlicensed user. The main function of each Cognitive Radio User in CR network is to identify primary licensed user. This is attained by sensing RF environment and a process called Spectrum sensing Algorithm. In this paper the simulation of probability of false alarm and probability of detection is discussed. Full Paper

Mobile Ad-Hoc Networking

Dr. Inderjit Kaur Nijjar

A mobile Ad Hoc network is collection of nodes that can physically move and that communicate using wireless technology. Each node can also act as a router and nodes cooperate to facilitate multyhop connections. This is in contrast to the well-known single hop cellular network model that supports the needs of wireless communication by installing base stations as access points. In these cellular networks, communications between two mobile nodes completely rely on the wired backbone and the fixed base stations. In a MANET, no such infrastructure exists and the network topology may dynamically change in an unpredictable manner since nodes are free to move. A mobile Ad Hoc network sometimes called a mobile mesh network is a self- configuring network of mobile devices connected by wireless links. In this paper we discuss the overview of many applications scenarios today where mobile multy-hop mesh wireless communications technology, technical challenges network security quality of service represents.

A Novel KNN Approach to Implement Inpainting and Compression/Decompression Technique and Get an Optimized Output With the Help of DCT Coefficients

Biprajit Bhattacharjee, Sanyam Anand, Usha Mittal

This review work has major focus on images which have cracks and minor distortions in them. This prevents any compression technique to give the best output. Hence there is a need to first remove those distortions from the images before applying compression. A system is proposed, in which K-Nearest Neighbor Algorithm is implemented after the DCT Step, to remove the distortions before compressing it. The neighboring color of the distorted part can be used to merge with the damaged part. So basically, we have to store less color intensities to save the same image without the distorted part which will result in more optimized compression ratio. It will be greatly valuable for viewer perspective. Full Paper

Work Life Balance in E- Age: A Study of Women Employees

Ms. Nidhi Aggarwal

In terms of Indian perspective, the anxiety over work-life balance is progressively becoming a common talk especially for women employees. Work life balance is a condition of equilibrium in which the demand of both professional and personal life is equal. Managing rising demands from the work and family domains represented a source of high strain for many employees which even lead to the health problems among employees. Although it is believed that work family role strain is more common among women employees, but men also experience stress resulting from differing roles and demands. The purpose of this paper is to figure out the working atmosphere of public sector banks specifically for women employees and what is the opinion of women about the ideas and policies of banks and effects of those ideas on their lives. Chi square test is applied in this paper to check the authenticity of data given by the respondents. The focus of research is on working women in banks with special reference to State Bank of India, Patiala city (Punjab). We propose that Work-Life Balance is nowadays, no doubt a major concern to be discussed as a serious matter and has to be managed. Full Paper

A Comparative Study of Enhanced ROI Techniques

Navneet Kaur Kang, Sanyam Anand

In medical imaging system, image compression is the important task. Economic and effective image compression techniques are needed to minimize the storage volume of medical database in hospitals while maintain the image quality. There are certain regions in an image which demands high quality where small quality reduction might alter subsequent diagnosis. A Region Of Interest (ROI) – based approach is used to separate the important medical data and the background data. This paper proposes four enhanced ROI techniques having common objective to separate the image as foreground and background to improve the compression process. The four techniques are Mixed Raster Contour layering, block-based, region growing and hybrid active contour algorithms. Various experiments performed revealed that all the techniques are efficient to separate the input image into IR and NIR. Full Paper

A Proposed E-PAM System for Polyhouse Marketing

Resham Arya, Ayesha Bhandralia, Dr. Sachin Ahuja

The polyhouse farming technique gives an absolute assurance to the farmers for the timely production of the agricultural commodities despite of unpredictable environment. But farmers do not have any proper channel or marketing system which helps them in advertising their organic polyhouse products and also help in tremendous growth of farmers financially. So, in this paper, an E-PAM (Electronic- Polyhouse Agricultural Marketing) system is proposed which will help farmers to directly sell their products. As there is no market network, some farmers go to the market itself and sell their product which leads to the bad production schemes, because their main focus is on market now. So here, an E-PAM is proposed which will act as an interface between the farmers and the customers. Full Paper

Role of Cloud Computing in Higher Education

Rekha Rani, Dr. Sawtantar Singh

Education is the social pillar for the development of human beings. In Today’s world, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are being used to deliver education services. The interlinking of computing devices have resulted into World Wide Web (www) of computers and gave birth to new term that is Internet. The internet also helps in providing several methods to accomplish the goal of learning. A new concept of E-learning emerges out of it. The e-learning means delivery of education service to the user or client anywhere, anytime. E-learning is possible with the help of Internet to spread education services with minimum expenditure throughout the country due to ease of access through handheld and easily affordable devices. There are many problems that exist in the traditional education system like integration of teaching resources, teaching development systems, teaching information systems [9]. E-learning is a service in the form of many applications like content management, virtualization, resource management, Communication management, management of learning etc. Keeping the pace with the technology, the Cloud computing technology shows another silver lining in delivery of education electronically [8]. The explorers allow users to share or access information from any device like mobile phone, tablets, personal computers (PCs) [13].
