  • IP switch over ATM LAN emulation (IP-ExpressTM)

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):454 - 458
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (400 KB)

    ATM is a widespread technology and most of the traffic it carries is from legacy LANs or generated by LAN-oriented software such as TCP/IP. Hence the importance of ATM Forum's LAN emulation protocol (LANE) and multi-protocol over ATM (MPOA) to allow bridging and routing of this traffic over an ATM network. In this article we focus on routing LAN flows among several emulated LANs. A novel technique... View full abstract»

    We present a real-time communication service suitable for distributed systems built over ATM networks. This service offers end-to-end quality of service guarantees, and supports end-to-end priority inheritance. Prioritized handling of user messages is performed in each communication layer crossed, including the ATM level. Our service relies on a specific real-time ATM adaptation layer (AAL), that ...

    ATM networks often carry other popular communication protocols such as TCP/IP. LAN emulation techniques, with LANE and MPOA being the most prominent ones, make it possible to support existing applications, but do not take advantage of many ATM capabilities. Furthermore, such server-based solutions often suffer from a single point of failure problems. PNNI augmented routing (PAR), based on private ... View full abstract»

    The output-buffered switching architecture with its ability to offer high throughput, guaranteed delay and fairness, is not practical owing to its lack of scalability, i.e., the memory size, speed, and control logic have to be scaled up proportionally to the number of input links, thus becoming infeasible for large switches. The commercial and research trend is to adopt an architecture with input ... View full abstract»

    For ATM networks, VBR, ABR and UBR are effective solutions to accommodate TCP/IP based LAN traffic. To obtain a high quality networking provision for TCP traffic it is important to select either ATM guaranteed or best effort service parameter values to clarify the interaction between the TCP flow control mechanism and the usage parameter control (UPC) function of the ATM switch. Previous studies h... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (520 KB)

    A new adaptive measurement-based connection admission control (CAC) for ATM networks is proposed. Several CAC methods are considered, and the efficiency/complexity trade-off is studied. In all methods, when a new call arrives, the CAC makes a decision to accept or reject the call according to a novel procedure for free bandwidth evaluation. This procedure is based on online measurements and on an ... View full abstract»

    In this paper we discuss issues relating to the mapping of QoS parameters in an IP/ATM environment. We conduct preliminary experiments with constant TP packet rate, which after segmentation in AAL5, generates a jittered CBR cell stream. We use this stream to investigate the effect of parameter translation on the QoS received by the application. Results indicate that translation does have a signifi... View full abstract»

    This paper introduces a new feature of IPv6 called an extension header. An extension header is located between the IPV6 header and the TCP header and offers new possibilities for IP over ATM signalling and high capacity allocation in backbone networks. In IPV6 it is possible to insert an arbitrary number of extension headers between the Internet header and the payload View full abstract»

    ATM networks are today operational, both as backbones for existing LAN technologies and as commercial wide-area multiservice networks. Still, in the early deployment of multi-site ATM networks, a number of difficulties have arisen out of the differences between the service definitions in local ATM networks and long distance carrier networks. In particular, the adaptation of LAN emulation protocols... View full abstract»

    The ATM Forum's PNNI (private network node interface) standard specifies a flooding mechanism to distribute topological state information amongst nodes participating in a PNNI network. While the flooding mechanism provides robust topology distribution, we show by simulation, that it can disproportionately overload lower-bandwidth links and, due to its inherent redundancy, can generate considerable...

    For an ATM network, the VBR (variable bit rate) service category is used to accommodate TCP/IP traffic. In an international ATM network with large propagation delay, higher TCP throughput can be obtained by use of the window scale option. In order to accommodate TCP traffic with the window scale option effectively, it is required to select optimum values of VBR parameters, i.e. SCR (sustainable ce... View full abstract»

    Cellular network applications are growing drastically and this requires a fast and efficient transport method between the base station and the mobile switching center. One possible solution is to use ATM links. The low data rate and small-sized packets in the typical cellular applications imply that a significant amount of link bandwidth would be wasted if this small sized packet is carried by one...

    Gaussian traffic models for high speed communication networks have received an increasing amount of attention. There are some puzzling and counter-intuitive features to deal with, such as negative traffic. However, on the plus side, the central limit theorem can be invoked to argue that traffic will become closer to Gaussian as more and more of it is aggregated together. The Gaussian model has a n...

    Many distributed multimedia applications involve data delivery from a source to multiple destinations, the participating nodes forming a multicast group. In the naive solution, separate connections can be established from each source to other group members. However a tree can be established for each source with the participants as the leaf nodes or just have one tree spanning all the participants.... View full abstract»

    Wide area networks have provided predominantly leased or switched, non-virtual circuit services. The traditional circuit services effectively provide the equivalent of a direct wire through the wide area network from one customer premise to another. If a service customer suspects that the service is faulty, the service provider may test using in-service methods which use management overhead inform... View full abstract»
