    The growing demand for high processing power in various scientific and engineering applications has made multiprocessing architectures increasingly popular. These multiprocessing systems consist of processing elements or nodes which are connected together by interconnection networks in various topologies. One of the design methodologies used for parallel machines has fed to the development of dist... View full abstract»

    A brief history of progress made in the mobile telecommunications industry is presented. This article compares the IRIDIUM system (which uses satellite operating in the 22.55 to 23.55 GHz range) to the existing Advanced Phone System (AMPS) cellular system. It is concluded that although the two systems' architectures, services provided, and subscriber number formats vary enormously, the methods use... View full abstract»

    This article provides a road map to understand the GSM operation, administration, and maintenance (OA&M) management. We describe, how the telecommunication management network (TMN) concept is applied to the GSM OA&M. The home location registration and call recording management are used as examples to illustrate how GSM OA&M functions can be implemented under the TMN platform View full abstract»

    Modern network services provided by frame relay (FR) or asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) networks show a wide variety of service characteristics and related quality of service, which amounts to a tremendous diversity of tariff structures. One of the network provider's objectives is to maximize the chargeable utilization of the network. This is intended to be achieved by a traffic contract on a per... View full abstract»

    Aggregation of resources is a means to improve performance and efficiency in statistically shared systems in general, and communication networks in particular. One approach to this is traffic dispersion, which means that the traffic from a source is spread over multiple paths and transmitted in parallel through the network. Traffic dispersion may help in utilizing network resources to their full p... View full abstract»

    By trading off temporal and spatial quality with available bandwidth, or manipulating the payout time of continuous media in response to variation in delay, audio and video flows can be made to adapt to fluctuating network conditions with minimal perceptual distortion. The authors describe the implementation of an adaptive transport system that incorporates a quality of service (QoS) oriented appl... View full abstract»
