    The authors discuss the broad issue of bandwidth allocation and call admission control (CAC) in high-speed networks, focusing on asynchronous transfer mode technology. It is maintained that despite the considerable amount of high-quality work carried out in this area, the debate surrounding these issues is not yet resolved. The complexity of dealing with a wide variety of as yet unknown user traff... View full abstract»

    The aynchronous transfer mode (ATM) has been deemed the transfer technique of choice in an integrated environment supporting multimedia services. The authors present an extensive review of fuzzy-logic-based and artificial-neural-network-based traffic control mechanisms that have been proposed in the field of asynchronous transfer mode networking. Following a qualitative review of the models used, ... View full abstract»

    This article investigates resource allocation in ATM networks and emphasizes bandwidth allocation. Resource allocation methods are categorized, and static and dynamic allocation strategies are compared. Dynamic allocation uses actual traffic behavior, while static allocation uses only the reference traffic condition given a priori. Examples of dynamic allocation strategies are available bit rate f... View full abstract»

    Telecommunications networks, and the Internet in particular, were unknown to people outside of the industry until just a few years ago. Today, everyone knows about the Net. But what do people actually know? And where do nontechnical audiences learn what they “know”? This article examines just a few of the ways in which the popular media (books and movies) has presented networks and net... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (7)  |  Patents (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1724 KB)

    When designing and configuring an ATM-based B-ISDN, it remains difficult to guarantee the quality of service (QoS) for different service classes, while still allowing enough statistical sharing of bandwidth so that the network is efficiently utilized. These two goals are often conflicting. Guaranteeing QoS requires traffic isolation, as well as allocation of enough network resources (e.g., buffer ... View full abstract»

    The introduction of the Open Computer Network (OCN), providing Internet-like services by NTT, will lead to higher-level demands by users. For example, users will be asking for higher quality, greater functionality, and lower charges for high-speed, high-throughput data transfer. To respond effectively to the wishes of sophisticated and varied users, technology development must be pursued from the ... View full abstract»

    The statistical multiplexing operation within an ATM network node is considered, with respect to different methods for the allocation of the bandwidth of an outgoing link. Service separation is assumed by dividing the overall traffic flows into classes, homogeneous in terms of performance requirements and statistical characteristics. Which share the bandwidth of a link according to some specified ... View full abstract»
