• Performance modelling and cost-effective analysis of multiservice integrated networks

Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):127 - 135
| | PDF (1340 KB)

The performance prediction and quantitative analysis of multiservice integrated networks are extremely important in view of their ever expanding usage and the multiplicity of their component parts together with the complexity of their functioning. Queueing network models (QNMs) are widely recognised as powerful and realistic tools for representing these systems as complex networks of queues and se... View full abstract»

• Call management in the open distributed office

Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):107 - 116
| | PDF (3288 KB)

This paper describes an agent-based model for the effective management of voice calls within an integrated computing-telephony environment. In this model, agents manage calls on behalf of users, who influence the behaviour of their agents by means of policy specifications. Call set-up then involves a negotiation process whereby agents attempt to agree upon some course of action and the agents invo... View full abstract»

• An architecture for a modular videoconferencing terminal supporting video cell loss

Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):137 - 142
| | PDF (960 KB)

A configurable architecture for a low-cost videoconferencing terminal usable on an ATM network has been developed which provides a high degree of performance in a modular manner. Considerable research has been conducted in order to provide support for the loss of any compressed video which is transferred between such terminals. This work enables lost video to be concealed using a simple processing... View full abstract»

• Next generation multiservice VSAT networks

Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):117 - 126
Cited by:  Papers (1)
| | PDF (2184 KB)

Very-small-aperture terminal (VSAT) satellite networks have so far been successful in the provision of specific communication services to geographically dispersed users. However, user demands are becoming more complex and VSAT networks are expected to provide a much wider range of services (voice, data and multimedia). This paper investigates how this service integration could be achieved and show... View full abstract»

• The desk area network

Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):143 - 152
| | PDF (1592 KB)

The authors describe their experiences with a novel architecture, the Desk Area Network', for use within a computing end-system. The architecture extended several concepts used in modern high-speed networks into computer system design, with the goal of building a platform able to supply quality of service' in support of multimedia applications View full abstract»

• Quality-of-service architecture: Monitoring and control of multimedia communications

Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):100 - 106
Cited by:  Papers (7)
| | PDF (1424 KB)

For distributed multimedia applications the provision of system-wide quality of service (QoS) is essential. The quality-of-service architecture (QoS-A) developed at Lancaster University offers a framework to specify and implement the required performance properties of multimedia applications over integrated-service networks in a heterogeneous environment. The work addresses the problem of lower-le... View full abstract»
