    In broadband networks, it is expected that at a given time there will be more data in the network than in narrowband networks, and therefore, to maintain the same quality of service, failures will need to be restored much faster. The purpose of this article is to demonstrate that broadband network technology, and in particular the asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), has factors that enable much fast... View full abstract»

    People with shared interests are using the Internet to solve problems, accomplish tasks, and create resources that would be well beyond the reach of any one person or organization. The Internet is being used to create virtual libraries, factor large numbers, organize massive volunteer efforts, and filter information in a collaborative fashion. The ability to leverage the efforts of large numbers o... View full abstract»

    The author proposes a view of modern networks as relationship management machines creating communities of people. He first reflects on the way in which economic analysis has approached the questions of organizations and relations. He tries to show that the rigid division of labor between micro economist and macro economist has left these issues in a no man's land until recently, when the transacti... View full abstract»

    Telemedicine is much more than just teleconferencing. ISDN could be used in some low-end applications, but many telemedicine applications will require the higher bandwidth and guaranteed qualities of service supported by ATM. We discuss the design of multimedia systems for telemedicine. First, various applications of telemedicine are presented, and their multimedia and communications requirements ... View full abstract»

    Advances in information technology in the past decade have resulted in a proliferation of clinical information systems dedicated to individual user groups and clinical functional areas. This, in turn, has led to the need for hospital-wide management and integration of information, and has triggered major efforts towards the development of integrated hospital information systems. A framework for de... View full abstract»

    In the information age we are caught in an information paradox. While we have easier access to significantly more information at substantially lower prices. We continue to lack knowledge about the implications of the evolving information society. For example, we have little knowledge about what consumers want, how much they will be prepared to pay, and what the implications will be for industrial ... View full abstract»

    Progress of key technologies for the past 10 years and the state of realization of PACS and teleradiology in Japan are reviewed. Even though advanced electronic technologies have brought a rapid spread of PACS and teleradiology, the total number of installations is small compared with that of the hospital information system (HIS). The reason of this is a lack of economic incentives. The merits or ... View full abstract»

    The current version of the Internet protocol (IP) is becoming obsolete because of its limited address space, lack of needed functionality and inadequate security features. The next generation of IP, called IPv6, has now been standardized and will carry TCP/IP networks and applications well into the next century. This article begins with an overview of the role of an internet protocol, looks at the... View full abstract»

    Heated debate still continues in Japan as to whether or not the world largest common carrier Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation, NTT, be divested. As NTT's declaration of network opening (hereafter open network declaration, or OND) was made public in the midst of this controversy, it was sometimes mistaken as a counterproposal to escape from breaking up. However, its significance will beco... View full abstract»

    The Internet in Brazil is experiencing explosive growth. Spawned by a newsmedia-driven public interest which began in early 1994, this growth has taken unique paths. In a country where the entire data communications and telephone services infrastructure is under a state monopoly, Internet services to final users are scattered through hundreds of private providers of all sizes, while Internet backb...
