    The paper provides a cost analysis of multicast channels in terms of transport resources allocated by the network. The analysis takes into account the diverse transport requirements of applications in multiservice networks such as multisource broadcasting of data to a common set of destinations, bidirectional/unidirectional data transfers among entities, and variable transfer rates of data. The co... View full abstract»

    Multicommodity flow (MF) models are well known and have been widely used in the design of packet-switched networks. They have also been used as approximations in the design of circuit-switched networks with reliability constraints. We investigate the usefulness of multicommodity models both as routing models and as an integral part of design models conceived under the failure propagation strategy.... View full abstract»

    Motivated by the phenomenal growth of the Internet in recent years, a number of cable operators are in the process of upgrading their cable networks to offer data services to residential subscribers, providing them direct access to a variety of community content as well as to the Internet. Using cable modems that implement sophisticated modulation-demodulation circuitry, these services promise to ... View full abstract»

    Future broad-band communications networks are expected to be dominated by video and image traffic. Variable bit-rate (VBR) video compression is generally preferred to constant bit-rate (CBR) compression because constant image quality can be provided. In contrast, CBR transport is preferred to VBR transport from the networking standpoint because of its simplicity. This paper studies the important i... View full abstract»

    This paper analyzes implementations of automatic code gapping (ACG) in intelligent network service control points (SCPs). The objective is to identify ACG controls that provide high call throughput while protecting the network from overloads. To achieve this we emphasize the need for careful engineering of vendors' control implementations (for example, the proper choice and use of internal SCP mea... View full abstract»

    Clusters of identical intermediate servers are often created to improve availability and robustness in many domains. The use of proxy servers for the World Wide Web (WWW) and of rendezvous points in multicast routing are two such situations. However, this approach can be inefficient if identical requests are received and processed by multiple servers. We present an analysis of this problem, and de... View full abstract»

  • Real-time block transfer under a link-sharing hierarchy

    Most application data units are too large to be carried in a single packet (or cell) and must be segmented for network delivery. To an application, the end-to-end delays and loss rate of its data units are much more relevant performance measures than ones specified for individual packets (or cells). The concept of a burst (or block) was introduced to represent a sequence of packets (or cells) that... View full abstract»

    Frame relay (FR) service via an FR interface over a common asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) backbone network requires an FR-to-ATM interworking unit (IWU), the functionality of which directly impacts the engineering of the overall network in terms of the capacity required, quality of service (QoS) expected, and the interference among different types of services being offered on the same platform. ...
