    New networking protocols and encoding techniques are making possible the use of distributed multimedia applications in enterprise networks. However, these flows remain very sensitive and have to be handled by more efficient mechanisms in the network. ATM provides adequate service categories to this end but, to provide these applications with a convenient level of QOS, a large amount of resources h... View full abstract»

  • End-to-end performance evaluation of internetworked ATM LANs

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):109 - 117
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (660 KB)

    The introduction of ATM technology in the customer premises is being propelled by the need for a seamless interconnection between the end subnetworks. We determine the end-to-end performance of internetworked asynchronous ATM LANs and internetworked integrated services ATM LANs by using a simulation based approach. The internetworked asynchronous ATM LANs are considered to be comprised of IEEE 802... View full abstract»

    The new trends in the service area cause a change on the service providing architecture and scheme. The most obvious differences are multimedia services and multiparty communications. The existing service providing schemes can hardly catch up with these new trends. A few years ago, multimedia service was not applicable to the public networks, because of the shortage of transmission bandwidth. Nowa... View full abstract»

  • A proposition of service protocols for the service platform functionality

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):145 - 149
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (348 KB)

    We propose the service node system (SNS) with a three-layered architecture which consists of information transport layer (ITL), distributed association layer (DAL) and service control layer (SCL) in order to effectively accommodate various new services as well as the existing services based on broadband networks. We also propose a service platform functional structure with service protocols that c... View full abstract»

    Although many network battles are won by information systems (IS) engineers/managers and their favorite networking vendor, the war rages on. As outlined by Dr. Peter Newman (see IEEE 21st Conference on Local Computer Networks, 1996) the world can be divided into two major networking group. The network socialists and the network capitalists. According to Dr. Newman, the network socialists want shar... View full abstract»

  • Cooperative management of enterprise networks in a mobile environment

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):170 - 179
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (796 KB)

    A mobile computer supported cooperative work (CSCW) environment is a natural setting for the integrated management of enterprise networks. This allows the sharing of scarce management expertise. The infrastructure for such systems is likely to proliferate soon, thanks to the rapid growth in mobile data communication systems. But these systems have severe bandwidth restrictions and have limited bat... View full abstract»

    The wireless private branch exchange (PBX) system is considered as a wireless extension to enterprise networking. In a WPBX, several base stations are connected to the PBX, and the PBX is then connected to the public switched telephone network (PSTN). Since only a small number of lines are expected to be busy at the same time, the capacity (number of the external lines) between the PBX and the PST... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a set of analyses that start from the business goals of the enterprise and map them to a set of technical network design requirements (as well as a corresponding set of applications requirements) as well as verifying the correctness of the derived architecture. To do this, one must start by interviewing key business and technical decision makers to understand their drivers, the... View full abstract»

    The design of an enterprise network security system presents a great challenge because of the complexity of networking environments and variation in design objectives. The design of a high performance and manageable enterprise network security system presents an even greater challenge. Such a system, however, would not only reduce the overall cost of system administration and user management, but ... View full abstract»

    We introduce a seamless massaging system for the management of personal messages. The aim of it is to intercept, filter, interpret, and deliver multi-modal messages (voice, fax, and/or e-mail messages). Messages are delivered to the recipient regardless of their target messaging device. Seamless messaging involves finding the person (if urgent) and delivering the information to them on their cellu... View full abstract»
