    In a self-organizing system, behavior emerges at the large scale from the collective interaction of simple rules that apply at the smaller scale. The behavior that emerges is not directly apparent from inspection of the local rules or processes operating at the lower level. Few problems in engineering have been addressed with the specific idea of designing simple rules that operate in an isolated ... View full abstract»

    Wireless communications are expected to be the dominant mode of access technology in the next century. Besides voice, a new range of services such as multimedia, high-speed data, etc. are being offered for delivery over wireless networks. Mobility will be seamless, realizing the concept of persons being in contact anywhere, at any time. Two developments are likely to have a substantial impact on t... View full abstract»

    With the spread of networking, the increasing power of the personal computer, the availability of information at the click of a button, and the emergence of the Internet as a potential competitor for traditional telecommunications traffic, the pace of change in the telecommunications field has never been faster. Moreover, network traffic patterns for the growing data services are highly unpredicta... View full abstract»

  • New communications services-what does society want?

    Historically, the deployment of new telecommunications services has taken years of effort and large amounts of investment. Thus, being able to predict the market acceptance before taking the business risk is critically important. Nevertheless, the record of success in such predictions has been relatively poor. Many new services are unable to overcome the barrier posed by Metcalfe's law, which says... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the evolution of signaling in modern telecommunications and data networks. It discusses the new capabilities introduced in both narrow-band and broad-band networks and their implications. This paper contrasts work being done in the telecommunications sector of the International Telecommunications Union, ATM Forum, and Internet Engineering Task Force and the motivations for dif...

  • Performance management of public ATM networks-a scaleable and flexible approach

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):1639 - 1645

    Asynchronous transfer mode technology promises a flexible, multiservice network that will support the broadband future. It will need to be robust and efficient in delivering quality of service, which will not be achieved by network protocols alone. Performance-management systems will be needed. If future networks are to be flexible-allowing new services to be added easily-then their management sys... View full abstract»

  • Dynamic modeling of present and future service demand

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):1544 - 1555

    The emphasis on “forecasting” demand for future services hides the fact that demand is not a predetermined element but something that is strongly influenced by societal and economic trends and the actions of market players. Any forecast makes implicit assumptions about the future. In a rapidly changing market, businesses need to supplement traditional forecasting models with dynamic mo... View full abstract»

    A number of serious consortiums develop satellite communication networks. The objective of these communication projects is to service personal communication users almost everywhere on Earth. The intersatellite links in those projects use microwave radiation as the carrier. Free-space optical communication between satellites networked together can make possible high-speed communication between diff... View full abstract»

    It is suggested that user selection of service provision on a network of heterogeneous servers be modeled by competitive replicator dynamics. User agents make their requirements known to network agents, which can bid for their execution. The bids initiate a negotiation process between the two groups of agents, at the end of which the user agents make a decision and map their requirements onto a se... View full abstract»

    Most large providers currently collect basic statistics on the performance of their own infrastructure, typically including measurements of utilization and availability and possibly rudimentary assessments of delay and throughput. In today's commercial Internet, the only baseline against which organizations can calibrate their networks is past performance data. No data or even standard formats are... View full abstract»
