    For pt.1 see ibid., no.3, p.84 (1997). The article provides the results of a set of analyses conducted to compare two major radio technologies, DECT/PWT-E and PACS, for their suitability in the local loop to provide voice and data services for customers. The authors first provide brief discussions on the Japanese Personal Handyphone System (PHS) and Omnipoint's Combined CDMA/TDMA (CCT) system as p... View full abstract»

  • The development of personal communication services under the auspices of existing network technologies

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):78 - 82
    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (788 KB)

    The concept of personal communication services (PCS) is only now beginning to take shape. In the past, PCS was described as services that were planned in certain frequency bands, such as in the 900 MHz narrowband licenses auctioned to the paging carriers (termed narrowband PCS) and the 1800 MHz frequencies auctioned for voice services. PCS has also been used as a synonym for certain technology sta... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1312 KB)

    A number of network operators and suppliers have collaborated in the full services access network (FSAN) initiative to agree on a common set of requirements for broadband networks. This article presents the OA&M requirements that have been considered by the OA&M working group with a view to reducing equipment and operational costs. In considering OA&M costs it is necessary to take into... View full abstract»

  • ORMA: a high-performance MAC protocol for fiber-optic LANs/MANs

    Cited by:  Papers (5)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1300 KB)

    Emerging B-ISDN applications are accelerating the demand for high-speed and high-performance fiber optic local and metropolitan area networks (LANs and MANs). Most of the networks proposed for such an environment are based on either a folded bus or dual unidirectional bus technology, primarily due to the unidirectional nature of the fiber optic medium, their cost effectiveness, and their ability t...

  • An economic ATM passive optical network

    ATM network technology simplifies considerably the provision of services by providing the user with a unique interface to a single integrated service network that will handle all the user's needs. However, while it is possible to think of direct fiber connection to large business customers, where the amount of traffic (and hence the revenue) justifies the expense, the provision of broadband access...

  • Distributed interactive video system design and analysis

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):100 - 108

    The interactive video (IV) market has been expected to capture a significant share of the huge potential revenues to be generated by the business and residential markets. The level of revenues generated depends on the completion rate of calls the service provider can support, no matter what the IV system or network condition. Thus, a cost-effective, scalable fault-tolerant IV system is needed to m... View full abstract»

    The diversity of telecommunications markets and access network infrastructure among the countries of Europe is a complicating factor in the development of effective standards for Europe's future access networks. The need for evolving access networks to make efficient use of a wide variety of existing infrastructure may at times conflict with the long-term requirement for a stable platform of self-...

    A variety of signal processing techniques have been developed over the past 10 years to increase the bit rate of digital transmission through telephone loop twisted pairs. The ISDN basic rate access 2B1Q digital subscriber line (DSL) was the first technology of this type to be deployed commercially at 160 kb/s full-duplex transmission on a single twisted pair. Other transmitter/receiver circuits h... View full abstract»
