    In the same way that the IMAP protocol provides secure, ubiquitous access to a user's email, an analogous protocol is desirable to enable user access to an organized collection of URL links that comprise a private mapping of the Web document space. This paper describes the design and staged implementation of a SLINKY server that meets these goals. View full abstract»

    In this paper, we introduce a new ATM switch architecture. The proposed design takes the best features of input, output and shared buffers schemes. Furthermore, buffer access speeds match the port speeds and the buffer acts in effect, as a multiport memory. The input buffers are implemented as a group of parallel shift registers. The parallel shift registers overcome the HOL and low throughput pro... View full abstract»

    Speech quality, with cell losses in an ATM network, has been evaluated previously using random cell loss rates. However, it has been shown that cell loss behavior for speech transmission in ATM is more appropriately described by the burst model due to the burstiness properties of the aggregate voice cell arrival process. A mathematical model, called the burst model for cell loss behavior in an ATM... View full abstract»

    WAVE is a novel paradigm and programming environment based on the concept of mobile intelligent agents. It allows intelligent mobile agents to roam in networks of arbitrary topology in a highly parallel and completely distributed manner. We show how WAVE can be effectively used in the simulation of the mobile-IP protocol. After a brief introduction of the WAVE paradigm and the mobile-IP protocol, ... View full abstract»

  • Congestion control with a multicast routing algorithm

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):70 - 73
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (308 KB)

    A new multicast routing algorithm for reducing congestion is presented. The algorithm uses efficient routing by transmitting multicast packets across fewer links in the network. The algorithm balances the use of network nodes and links by reducing packet duplication in the nodes. The computation time of the algorithm is short. The results show that the algorithm can find the multicast paths by usi... View full abstract»

    The delay performance was studied for a fiber to the home (FTTH) system, where an optical fiber is dedicated to each customer. There may be applications requiring the sharing of the electronics among multiple customers using a fiber to the curb (FTTC) system. In such an application, delay performance is more complex than the FTTH case because of allowing multiple customers to share the fiber upstr... View full abstract»

    Multimedia streams usually have an inherent hierarchy and an inter-independency of subsequent blocks in their data structures. Dealing with these features within the operating system and the network brings a global resource usage improvement. We propose a new method for media scaling based on two complementary techniques: circular buffers and filtering. We describe an MPEG distributed application ... View full abstract»
