    Stony Brook Video Server (SBVS) is an Ethernet-based video server from the Experimental Computer Systems Laboratory, SUNY at Stony Brook, and has been fully operational for over a year. The SBVS employs only off-the-shelf PC components and is capable of guaranteeing real-time delivery of digital video streams from the server's disk subsystem, through a shared LAN, to an end user's display. The SBV... View full abstract»

    In networks that support quality of service, an admission control algorithm determines whether or not a new traffic flow can be admitted to the network such that all users will receive their required performance. Such an algorithm is a key component of future multiservice networks because it determines the extent to which network resources are utilized and whether the promised QoS parameters are a...

  • Internet QoS: a big picture

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):8 - 18
    Cited by:  Papers (315)  |  Patents (57)

    We present a framework for the emerging Internet quality of service (QoS). All the important components of this framework-integrated services, RSVP, differentiated services, multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), and constraint-based routing-are covered. We describe what integrated services and differentiated services are, how they can be implemented, and the problems they have. We then describe wh... View full abstract»

    This article describes the new initiative on broadband wireless access (BWA) that has formed Working Group 802.16 in the IEEE 802 LAN/MAN Standards Committee. The aim is to provide the reader with highlights of the IEEE 802 activities in order to enable better dissemination of these standards into marketable products as well as seek new ideas to be brought into the IEEE 802 arena. BWA systems, uti... View full abstract»

    This article discusses technical issues related to delivery of multimedia services, such as video-on-demand, over heterogeneous networking environments. In particular, it describes the design and implementation of an experimental system for multimedia service interworking between a DAVIC (Digital Audio Visual Council) domain and an Internet domain. The system, called MIDDLEMEN (middlemen for multi... View full abstract»

    Multicast distribution of video is an important component of many existing and future networked services. The Internet lacks support for quality of service (QoS) assurance, which makes the transmission of real-time traffic challenging. In addition, the heterogeneity of the Internet's transmission resources and end-systems makes it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to agree on acceptable traf... View full abstract»

    For distributed multimedia services, it is essential that quality of service be guaranteed system-wide, including end systems, communication systems, and networks. Although many researchers have addressed issues of QoS management, little attention has so far been paid to the QoS management services in distributed multimedia services and applications. To address this deficiency, we have designed a ... View full abstract»
