    Today the World-Wide Web is the most widely used distributed application. By utilising the data services of cellular telephone systems such as the digital GSM, WWW can be brought to nomadic users. However, the characteristics of cellular telephone links differ greatly from wire-line links. The narrow bandwidth, highly variable transmission delays, and sudden disconnections create problems for many... View full abstract»

    This paper considers the use of prefetching in WWW for reducing the perceived latency. We first look at a number of basic issues and tradeoffs in prefetching. Our analysis shows that, unless the traffic is very light or the prefetching efficiency is very high, statistical prefetching may not necessarily reduce perceived delay. We then present an implementation of deterministic prefetching in a hot... View full abstract»

    We present a new error concealment technique for audio transmission over heterogeneous packet switched networks based on time-scale modification of correctly received packets. An appropriate time-scale modification algorithm, WSOLA (“Waveform Similarity Overlap-Add”), is used and its parameters are optimized for scaling short audio segments. Particular attention is paid to the addition... View full abstract»

    The spectre of low-cost, real-time voice communication over the Internet has polarised Internet service providers and telephone network operators, at the expense of finding solutions to the problem of integrating communications services (in particular, existing wireless and wireline telephony) with WWW content services. This paper argues that solutions not only exist and appear to be commercially ... View full abstract»

    Much of the work on routing algorithms, particularly for multicast, which has been done in the past has used fairly simple models to generate the topological graph which represents the hosts in the network. Some such random graphs bear little resemblance to data communication networks which are actually deployed. This paper proposes a more realistic model, incorporating hierarchy and redundancy, a...

    As global networks are being used by more and more people, they are becoming increasingly interesting for commercial applications. The success and change in direction of the World-Wide Web is a clear indication for this. However this success met a largely unprepared communications infrastructure. The Internet as an originally non-profit network did neither offer the security, nor the globally avai... View full abstract»

    We focus on RSVP-based resource reservations in a heterogeneous environment which includes ATM networks. We describe a method for establishing shortcuts for the data flow through an ATM network which avoids the performance penalty associated with layer 3 processing in the classical IP over ATM approach. For the guaranteed and controlled-load types of services we show how to map the RSVP flow chara... View full abstract»
