Critical Study Of Bandwidth Management Strategies For Internet Services [Case Study Midlands State University]

ABSTRACT The internet has become a key resource at Midlands State University for research and communication. The institution is also experiencing high students‟ population which in turn has led to more demand for bandwidth. The high students‟ population makes the overall available bandwidth shrink leading to slow internet connection making internet an ineffective academic resource. The institution has been responding to slow internet connection by buying more bandwidth which is so unecono...

Mobile Phone Based Scada System

ABSTRACT Monitoring is very important in Industrial Automation to bring out reliability and accuracy thus the use of a SCADA system. SCADA is an acronym for “Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition.” This systems are widely used in industry for supervisory control and data acquisition of industrial processes. A Android-enabled mobile phone can be used as a client in a SCADA application in order to display and supervise an industrial refrigeration system. The project presents an actual im...

The Impact Of Network Outage On Value Added Services: A Case Study Of M-Pesa In Ilala Municipal In Dar Es Salaam

ABSTRACT The study was aimed at assessing the impact of network outage on the Value Added Services (VAS) particularly Mobile-Pesa (M-Pesa) among other (VAS) offered by Vodacom network operator in Tanzania. The study was conducted in Ilala municipal in Dar es Salaam Tanzania. The basic parameters used to assess the network availability were Mean Time To Repair (MTTR), Call Setup Success Rate (CSSR) and Total User Outage Time (TUOT). The parameters like the time to get response from the operat...

Comparative Analysis On Reception Of Digital Video Broadcast-Terrestrial: A Case Study Of Arusha City

ABSTRACT  Tanzania has been among the earliest countries in Africa to employ Digital Video Broadcast-Terrestrial (DVB-T) System. The deadline for Analogue Switch Off (ASO) was set to be in 2015, but Tanzania decided to have phased switch off since 2010. DVB-T is a new system in Tanzania and hence the extent of quality of the signal needs to be established. This research compares the reception of DVB-T second generation spatial signal strength as offered by Star Media Limited, Agape Associate...

Developing Video Streaming Quality Of Experience Prediction Model In Wireless Broadband Networks

ABSTRACT Mobile video streaming has grown tremendously in recent years due to technological advancement of both network and end-devices. Unlike the voice services which run on the background traffic mode, the network impairments on video streaming traffic affect users’ perceived quality directly which results into high rate of churn. For that reason, measuring users’ quality of experience (QoE) has become the major challenge to network operators and service providers. This study therefor...

Using Gnu Radio For Practical Demonstrations In Communications Theory

ABSTRACT GNU Radio is a software development toolkit that has traditionally been used by a community of specialized coders and advanced engineers for rapid prototyping and analysis of the physical layer. However, recently its potential as an educational tool is being debated and calls have been made to expand its applicability into this area. In this dissertation, the researcher responds by documenting how GNU Radio platform can be used to design a number of new practical demonstrations which...

Improving Road Safety And Transport Efficiency Using Cellular Networks In Tanzania

ABSTRACT Road transport takes about 70% of the transportation systems in Tanzania. With the increasing number of vehicles and urbanization, the number of road accidents has been rising now and then leading to an increase in the number of casualties and deaths. Efforts must be made to make sure that the number of road accidents is reduced. Wireless technologies have come as a solution to such road safety and transport efficiency issues. Recently, the promise of wireless technologies to suppor...

Regulation, Competition And Productivity Growth In The African Telecommunications Industry

ABSTRACT The telecommunications industry in Africa has exhibited tremendous development since the turn of the century. This study analyzes production efficiency changes in the African telecommunications industry in the period 2000 to 2009. Furthermore, an attempt is made to assess the determinants for such efficiency changes. The results show that the industry has improved its productivity levels. However, most of the productivity growth is resulted from technological advancement and less fr...

Interference Management In LTE Femtocell System

ABSTRACT LTE-Advanced is the winning technology approved by International Telecommunications Union (ITU) as a 4G mobile communication system. It is an evolution of LTE and backward compatible with LTE because they both use the same air-interface technologies such as OFDMA and MIMO. To meet the challenge of growing bandwidth demand by indoor users, femtocell is the technology suggested in LTE-Advanced. Users have the capability of expanding their capacity by buying and self installing these m...

Fading Issues In Wireless Communication Systems: A Case Study Of Airtel Tanzania Limited

ABSTRACT The study aimed at investigating and proposing the effective measures of using Central Equipment Identity Register to mitigate mobile phone theft over Airtel network operator as a case study in Tanzania. The study was conducted in Mbeya municipal. The study employed purposive sampling technique. Ninety respondents were involved where, eighty seven Airtel customers were selected randomly who live in Mbeya municipal and three key informants from Airtel (two site engineers and one netw...

Performance Evaluation Of Coding Techniques In Power-Line Communication Channel

ABSTRACT Broadband Power-Line Communication (BPLC) is a technology which has drawn attention to researchers in the field of digital communication. Using this technology there is no need of new installation which is advantageous compared to other technologies. However, due to noises and multipath fading in BPLC systems, studies on coding techniques and suitable modulation schemes are unavoidable. Studies by other researchers have shown that multicarrier modulation techniques perform better tha...

Power Spectral Distribution Analysis Of Rr Intervals In Ecg Under Normal And Different Diseases

ABSTRACT Analysis on spectral distribution of beat to beat (RR intervals) in Electrocardiography (ECG) signal became an important tool in biomedical signal processing for studying heart rate variability (HRV). Heart signals allow for a comprehensive analysis of the heart. Electrocardiography uses electrodes to measure the electrical activity of the heart. Extracting ECG signals is a non invasive process that opens the door to new possibilities for the application of advanced signals processin...

Analysing The Effect Of Visibility And Scintillation On Free Space Optical Communication: A Case Of Dodoma And Dar Es Salaam

ABSTRACT Free space optical communication (FSO) is receiving a lot of attention as an alternative last mile wireless communication system. This is because of its high data rate, large bandwidth and easy installation than the traditional radio frequency (RF) and fiber optic communication systems. However the medium through which the signal travels is the atmosphere. This medium is affected by the prevailing weather conditions. FSO is prone to hash atmospheric conditions such as wind, temperat...

Detection Of Ddos Attacks And Flash Events Occuring Simultaneously In Network Traffic Using Deep Learning Techniques

ABSTRACT Recently, the advancement of technology and internet contributes to the increase of the network traffic over the globe. It improves digital services delivery over the global network such as online shopping, television, and streaming. However, as digital services become one of the de facto applications over the internet, a number of attacks on them have been increasing which raise security concerns. Some of the major attacks are Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and Flash Events (F...
