    We present an adaptive network layer protocol for VBR video transport. It: (1) minimizes the buffer requirement in the network while guaranteeing that packets of VBR encoded video flows will not be lost, and (2) minimizes the end-to-end delay and jitter of frames. To achieve the former objective, we utilize a receiver-oriented adaptive credit-based flow control algorithm, and derive the necessary ... View full abstract»

    Transmitting multimedia data over a CDMA channel presents a new set of challenges. Sometimes, data demands will exceed the system capacity, in which case the system must make the most efficient use of its limited resources. The resources we consider are: fixed bandwidth available for each user and the transmit power budget for each cell. We present our approach for unifying power control, variable...

    In a connection-oriented wireless LAN, the mobility of mobile hosts results in the establishment and disconnection of new and old virtual circuits. The resulting increase in signalling traffic along with the need to support multimedia stream handovers demand a fast, continuous and bandwidth-efficient handover protocol. We adopt a handover scheme based on partial re-establishments, where a new part... View full abstract»

  • Congestion-oriented shortest multipath routing

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):1028 - 1036 vol.3
    Cited by:  Papers (34)  |  Patents (42)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (840 KB)

    We present a framework for the modeling of multipath routing in connectionless networks that dynamically adapt to network congestion. The basic routing protocol uses a short-term metric based on hop-by-hop credits to reduce congestion over a given link, and a long-term metric based on end-to-end path delay to reduce delays from a source to a given destination. A worst-case bound on the end-to-end ... View full abstract»

    Packet radio networks are modeled as arbitrary graphs by most researchers. We show that an arbitrary graph is an inaccurate model of the radio networks. This is true because there exists a large class of graphs which will not model the radio networks. Radio networks can be modeled accurately by a restricted class of graphs called the planar point graphs. Since the radio networks can accurately be ... View full abstract»

    Broadband network are developed to carry a wide range of traffic which has different characteristics and grade-of-service (GoS) requirements. To meet these distinct requirements, we propose to decompose each network component into multiple sub-components. Each sub-component has a dedicated bandwidth and buffer, and it only carries traffic which has a similar GoS requirement. Thus it will reduce th... View full abstract»

    A number of proposals for supporting the Internet protocol (IP) over ATM are under discussion in the networking community including: LAN emulation, classical IP over ATM, routing over large clouds, and multiprotocol over ATM. Each of these proposals hides the real network topology from the IP layer by treating the data link layer as a large, opaque, network cloud. We argue that this leads to compl... View full abstract»
