  • ATM in the BBC. Why, what and when

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):7/1 - 711
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (628 KB)

    This paper reviews the needs of the broadcaster using the historical development of the BBC broadcast infrastructure to formulate requirements. Then it explores the current issues facing the programme making infrastructure and finally, speculates on the role that managed high speed digital network services such as ATM could have in providing solutions View full abstract»

  • Quality of service and the ATM adaptation layers

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):2/1 - 2/5

    This paper provides a tutorial on the ATM adaptation layer (AAL) protocols in conjunction with a discussion of quality of service (QoS) issues. We describe the various traffic classes and explain the relationship of the traffic classes to the various AAL protocols. We discuss the negotiation of a traffic contract prior to connection-set-up and the enforcement of this traffic contract during the co... View full abstract»

  • ATM in the home-and-the home area network

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):9/1 - 9/5

    The cost of asynchronous transfer mode technology is falling while its deployment is growing. Once regarded as a technology strictly for rates above 100 Mbps, ATM may now be considered for any networking scenario where multimedia and real-time are important. We look at a possible deployment path for ATM technology in the home and explain some of our practical work. These are both based on dumb ATM... View full abstract»

    This paper examines the application areas for ATM within the TV broadcasting environment. Furthermore, it also looks at some of the problems encountered with video transmission across ATM networks. The TV broadcast application areas can broadly be divided into four groups; programme gathering, contribution/post-production, primary distribution and secondary distribution. Primary distribution is de... View full abstract»

  • ATM technology overview-what it is and what it is not

    ATM is probably the most talked about networking technology of the last 5 years, however at some point the talking has to stop, and commercially viable deployment begin. Depending on one's view, or possibly vested interest, ATM is either on the verge of widespread deployment, or the technology that never quite made it, and is about to be killed off by IP. Debate between the opposing camps is often... View full abstract»

  • “In home” digital networks and cordless options

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):8/1 - 8/6

    This paper examines the need and opportunity for in-home digital networks (IHDN) in general and why the interest they generate seems to be growing. The case for “cordlessness” is made and the likely strength of this capability is compared with, and related to, the expected performance of the latest wired options. A possible reconciliation is proposed between the apparently most compete... View full abstract»

  • ATM based video and audio codecs

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):3/1 - 3/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (340 KB)

    This paper presents the ATM-related technical features of the range of ATM based video and audio hardware codecs manufactured by FORE Systems. These devices are stand-alone and attach directly to the ATM network and are thus completely decoupled from any particular hardware and operating systems platform. The devices are managed from a remote workstation or PC. Video and audio sourced from the har... View full abstract»

  • Is ATM programme delivery to the home really practical?

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):10/1 - 10/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (304 KB)

    This paper briefly outlines SOCOM's use of ATM and how we expect the market for ATM based services to evolve. Basically, we do not think that ATM is mature enough to be widely used for programme delivery to the home today. However, we do expect that it will be the dominant technology used to deliver interactive multimedia programming to the home in the future View full abstract»
