    The electricty industry, as other utilities, is concerned with the management of large scale distribution networks. These networks have been developing for more than a century and the methods for operating them have changed over this time. For almost fifty years mobile communications have played an increasingly important role in the co-ordination of activities in the field. In more recent years, t... View full abstract»

    Research at the University of Plymouth (UoP) has identified that communication between users of workstations in a commercial/industrial environment would be considerably enhanced if a real-time speech link was available in addition to `screen-share' facilities. This paper investigates the problems of implementing a real-time interactive speech link by integrating the speech packets (PCM) within th... View full abstract»

    The enrichment of the user environment brought about by the integration of non-text based information presentation and capture presents significant demands upon the current hierarchy of data networks. This paper examines these requirements and suggests that asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) presents a sufficiently scaleable and usable technology to become a major enabling force within mixed media a...

    The likeable and usable service interfaces LUSI project has concentrated its effort by adopting a `problem up' approach. The project identified 3 public service categories, messaging, conversational and retrieval, and, taking into account the availability of services to partners, selected 14 user-service interfaces for inclusion into the first experimental phase of the project. The services employ... View full abstract»

    In 1992, the CEC agreed to finance a one-year project called `Piloting of Multimedia Integrated Services for European Researchers (MICE)'. The goal of the project is to enable interworking between European researchers, and connecting them to sites in the US, using existing facilities. The main aim of MICE is to enable multimedia conferencing (audio, video and shared workspace) between conference r... View full abstract»

    With the ongoing effects of organisations, such as RNID, to campaign for an end to discrimination against deaf people in society, it is necessary to consider how certain key technologies, such as video telephony, can help in this process. Telecommunity, as part of the RACE program, is developing novel video telephony technology and services to provide support to disabled people both at home and at... View full abstract»
