    The explosive growth of the Internet has given IP routing new challenges. Innovative solutions have been proposed to solve the current router bottleneck by evolving to a tighter integration of IP and ATM, an approach called shortcut routing. This article categorizes the current IP over ATM shortcut proposals and identifies a number of issues. However, while IP and ATM routing and forwarding functi... View full abstract»

    Locating mobile objects in a worldwide system requires a scalable location service. An object can be a telephone or a notebook computer, but also a software or data object, such as a file or an electronic document. Our service strictly separates an object's name from the addresses where it can be contacted. This is done by introducing a location-independent object handle. An object's name is bound...
