    The Release 1 signalling protocol is essentially ready for implementation and soon to be deployed in real networks allowing simple calls. Capability Set 2 will introduce a number of phased improvements including multipoint connections and multiple bearers C53 will add the power of intelligent networks and embedded multimedia servers, requiring a more flexible control architecture View full abstract»

    The main objective of the European ATM Pilot is to confirm inter-operability of ATM crossconnects in a multi-vendor and multi-operator environment. A second objective is to test the support of services and, in particular, the interworking between ATM and existing network infrastructures. User approval conditions, technical aspects and four benchmark services supported over the Pilot network are discussed View full abstract»

    Distributed-queue dual-bus is a cell-based broadcast network developed primarily as a high-speed LAN interconnection facility. It can also support limited isochronous (constant bit rate) communication services. The DQDB standard IEEE 802.6 (ISO 8802.6) relates to a single subnetwork in the context of a larger network, typically a number of interconnected DQDB subnetworks. This paper discusses subnetwork architectures, MAC sublayer and physical layer operations, the queued arbitrated access function with bandwidth balancing counters, slot and segment formats, and the connectionless SMDS and CBDS data service View full abstract»

  • Integrated circuit solutions for multimedia servers

    Publication Year: 1994 , Page(s): 8/1 - 814
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (696 KB)  

    This paper describes the trends and alternatives towards the implementation of real-time distributed systems such as interactive multi-service for the Local Area (or Enterprise) Networks. Details on new integrated circuit and system level implementation of real-time multimedia systems are provided. The family of components presented is flexible to accommodate various data rates, interconnection architectures, transfer protocols and a migration path towards cell relay technology (ATM) View full abstract»
