Towards a Feasible Active Networking Scenario

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We investigate the impact of introducing active networking on traditional packets flowing through the active nodes of a network. Using two approaches, the process algebra formalism PEPA and the simulation package SimJava, we compare the performance of an active node and of a traditional one. We are mainly interested in performance measures such as loss rates of standard packets and the node latency for this kind of packets.
