MANET Billing system

Short description

Self-forming networks are one of the most promising development areas of WIFI networks nowadays. There are technologies developed for Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET), people possess millions of WIFI devices. But despite all this self-forming networks are few. Only military and rare enthusiasts are building such networks. There are still no commercial implementations, if I am not mistaken.

We think that one of the reasons was the lack of a mechanism (technology) of the mutual accounting between users of the MANET. That is why ISPs are not developing MANET, and the users are not motivated to support networks with the resources of their WIFI devices.

What we suggest is a mutual billing technology, which allows users to earn (or get a discount), serving as a "relay node" in the MANET network.

The main provisions

MANET Billing system consists of 2 (traditional) parts:

  1. MANET Billing server (MBS) – the billing server that processes the information coming from the agents and carries out the billing and tariffication.
  2. MANET Billing agent (MBA) - the program running on each network device. It sends MBS account records, participates in user authentication and authorization. MBA can be embedded in the device or work as a Java application.

All members of the network can be divided into three groups:

  1. Common Users – those who use the network services, but are not involved in the transit transfer of the traffic.
  2. Relay Users – those who use the network services and are involved in the traffic transfer.
  3. Relay Nodes – they do not use the services, but participate in the traffic transfer.

The MANET Billing system has the following main functions:

  1. it performs the function of AAA server (Authentication, Authorization, Accounting).
  2. it charges Common Users and Relay Users for the use of the network.
  3. it pays Relay Users and Relay Nodes for the transmission traffic services.

Charging system may differ from the traditional one. The criteria can be not only the number of packets transmitted, but also the amount of energy spent by the relay node on the traffic transfer. Such an approach would enable a more equitable way of tariffication, as the battery life of mobile devices is the spending resource.

Sleep apnea is a very difficult thing to live with, both for the sufferer and for people living and sleep with him or her. If you fit into either of these categories, then you know just how frustrating it can be. Read through the tips found in this article to learn the best way to survive this problem!

If you are unsure whether or not you have sleep apnea, consider setting up an audio or video recorder next to your bed. When you review the recording, watch or listen for choking, gasping or other signs that you are not getting enough air as you sleep. Present your findings to your doctor if you suspect that you do have apnea.

If you have sleep apnea, be sure to ask your doctor every five years if you should have a follow-up sleep study. As your weight and health change, your CPAP pressure may need to be adjusted. The most accurate way to reassess your needs is to have another sleep study with CPAP so the appropriate pressure can be determined.

On easy way to help limit your sleep apnea is to stick to regular sleeping hours. When you stick to a sleep schedule that is steady and consistent, you will be more relaxed and sleep much better. Apnea episode frequency will be greatly reduced if you can get plenty of sleep every night.

Sleep apnea can benefit from a good diet that results in your losing weight. Normally people are quite surprised to learn that unhealthy eating is a major source of their sleep apnea. It's been proven that poor diets can contribute to the severity of sleep apnea.

Drink one cup of caffeinated coffee a few hours before you go to sleep. It may seem silly to drink a caffeine drink at night, but this can actually help keep your throat open while you sleep. You may have to play around with what time you drink the coffee to avoid restlessness.

Sleep apnea does not go away on its own; patients need treatment. Some treatments work better for different people. If you lose weight you will help your sleep apnea, but this is not always the cause. CPAP machines are considered non-invasive, and many people use them successfully. Others prefer surgery to relieve their sleep apnea. Choose whichever method you think will work for you so you may begin to live a happy and comfortable life.

A great way to know if you are experiencing severe apnea is to keep a sleep journal. Write down all the times that you wake up in the night and also record how you feel in the morning. This will help you to have a record to see your progress.

Minimize your risk from the conditions causing sleep apnea. Some sleep apnea risk factors cannot be changed, like genetic or hereditary reasons. But others, such as weight smoking and drinking, can be controlled.

Throughout history, sleep apnea has been one of the most frustrating, often dangerous conditions from which a person can suffer. Anyone wishing to alleviate their sleep apnea symptoms must first acquire complete comprehension of the condition's causes and possible treatments. Keep the material from this article nearby, and you will have a useful reference to help you navigate the sea of potential solutions.
