    ATM is essentially a connection-based system and not ideally suited to supporting connectionless traffic, i.e., any service that does not have a connection set-up phase separate from information transfer and associations are made on a per-packet basis. In order to support connectionless data services which are likely to be among the first B-ISDN services, special provision is required. This paper ... View full abstract»

  • An optimised architecture for SDH network element management

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):3/1 - 3/6

    Current architectures for element management systems within the synchronous digital hierarchy do not produce optimal implementations of management functions. This is especially true for fault recovery. Fault recovery usually requires two underlying functions: alarm surveillance (fault detection) and configuration (fault correction) to be performed upon the network objects, these in turn are influe...

    As the complexity of telecommunications networks increase to meet a far greater diversity of customer services centralised control becomes less attractive, tending to increase response times to network events, reduce overall resilience and encourage a top level approach to development of network management applications. This results in a massive build up of software complexity. We discuss how dist... View full abstract»

  • Broadband services over ATM via satellite

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):6/1 - 6/6

    Satellites can play very important role in the development of B-ISDN services based on ATM technology. The main strengths of satellites are their flexibility of covering large areas which make them useful in all phases of integrated broadband communications, from the initial experimental systems to the fully developed networks. A demonstrator has been developed within the RACE Programme. It has be... View full abstract»

  • SDH and its management

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):1 - 6

    Because of its regulatory position, the UK has a number of independent SDH networks, highlighting the factors involved in interworking. These networks vary from a few rings to a complex network with highly integrated management. Such a network has to be extremely robust, not just at traffic level, but also in terms of the supporting functions such as data communications and synchronisation. The le... View full abstract»

    Although the hundreds of Megabit/s killer application for B-ISDN has not been found, this is not affecting the tremendous interest in ATM. Increasingly ATM is being proposed for all manner of solutions. The effect of video on demand upon ATM currently shows the most promise for stimulating the growth of the public ATM networks. If ATM is chosen for the world's video on demand delivery system, it o... View full abstract»

  • ATM/SDH interworking

    The role of the SDH infrastructure in supporting ATM services is described in this paper. The ATM layer will be a client of the SDH layer. The broadband integrated services digital network (B-ISDN) can be viewed as two layers when interworking between ATM and SDH is considered. The SDH infrastructure layer will provide synchronous bandwidth pipes between the customer access points onto the SDH net... View full abstract»
