  • Chitedze, Zimani; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2011)
    This paper addresses mobility management issues in an environment with both wireless LAN and wireless mesh networks. We first examine wireless mesh network client side transparency within mesh mobility management protocols ...
  • Tucker, William D.; Vuza, Xolisa; Chetty, Marshini; Blake, Edwin H.; Marsden, Gary; Pearson, Murray; Westerveld, Rudi (2007)
    For four years we have been iteratively evolving MUTI, a rural telehealth system, for hospitals and clinics in a remote rural part of the Eastern Cape in South Africa (Chetty, 2005; Chetty et al., 2003, 2004a; Maunder et ...
  • Agbele, Kehinde K.; Adesina, Ademola Olusola; Nyongesa, Henry O.; Febba, Ronald (Medwell Journals, 2010)
    The significant roles play by ranking function in the performance and success of Information Retrieval (IR) systems and search engines cannot be underestimated. Diverse ranking functions are available in IR literature. ...
  • Agbele, Kehinde K.; Adesina, Ademola Olusola; Azeez, Nureni A.; Abidoye, Ademola P.; Febba, R. (Academic Journals Inc., 2011)
    This study presented DROPT; an acronym for Document ranking Optmization algorithm approach, a new idea for the effectiveness of meaningful retrieval results from the information source. Proposed method extracted the frequency ...
  • Tucker, William D.; Blake, Edwin H.; Marsden, Gary (Telkom, 2004)
    We looked for and found two situations within the South African Digital Divide where constant and severe macro-scale latencies would most likely interfere with the usage of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) ...
