Abstract– Payam-e-Noor university system was established following Great Britain Open University and its mission was implementing distance education. In Iran communication and information technology growth and development in all aspects of life especially learning and education process and subsequently E-education phenomena advent, was started by proposing the first national plan in this respect called "Techfa" formally in the middle of 2002. Following this move a plenty of activities was carried in the field of E-educational courses in Iran. Information technology was propounded as E-education formation underlying rule. Consequently investigating information technology indications in two different sections such as computer skills and network skills become of special importance and necessity. The present study was prepared by the aim to securitize the Education promotion process using optimization model in two basic indications in network and computer skills among Isfahan Payam-e-Noor university students as a case study in distance-educational system. The findings of the present research prepared are the obtained result of Pearson correlation coefficient test between network skills and computer skills among Isfahan Payam-e-Noor students. The findings of the present research prepared to examine more exact and accurate network skill condition in Isfahan Payam-e-Noor university students, revealed a high statically distribution for students having low network skills of 49.7% just 0.7% of these students have medium or higher network skill through investigating network skill condition of Isfahan Payam-e-Noor university students, as a case study of distance and half attendance educational system, it is necessary to establish regular and purposeful educational and training courses of ICDL skills and the internet and network skills training before students registration.

Abstract– This research is about to build a network with Voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) traffic in Virtual Private Network (VPN) with efficient speed of data transfer rate and minimum packet delay. There are number of protocols that can be used for security enhancement and to reduce packet delay but in this study VoIP is implemented to test traffic on VPN for packet delay and data transfer rate. VoIP is a swiftly rising term for voice conversation that organizes VoIP client equipment’s such as desktop IP phones, mobile VoIP-allowed handheld devices, control all functionality about voice communication. VPN still faces many issue regarding security and packet delay. Secured VPN may increase the quantity of packet loss. This proposed work provides minimum delay of packets and also increases the security performance with efficient codec and timeout in VoIP traffic over VPN. VoIP codec G.726, ilBC are also tested in this research. As a result both are best in Audio and video calls but depend on network infrastructure. Moreover, many tools such as (GNS3, OPNET, Wire shark), algorithms and methods are applied to checks the effect of VoIP traffic over VPN with respect to packet size, packet loss, timeout, time average to transfer file (download and upload), quality of services and best selection of code for VoIP traffic . Above cited codecs are compare the performance of software and hardware environment regarding VoIP over VPNs. This work increased the performance of data rate and minimized packet delay on VoIP traffic in VPN. Wireshark tool is used to analysis the data regarding packet on VoIP over VPN.

Abstract– In industry, the Internet of Things with connected objects is combined with growing waiting around the optimization and improvement of maintenance. It allows new possibilities and opportunities, including predictive maintenance. However, this integration of the internet of things in industrial environment generates new issues. This research work is devoted initially, to present the state of art applications of the Internet of Things for predictive maintenance. Second, we are going to review the opportunities for such a system for industrial maintenance. Finally, we will understand the issues related to the deployment of the Internet of Things for a maintenance application.
