Telecommunication companies (telcos) are beginning to exploit further their existing access networks by using new technologies capable of delivering data at up to 30 Mbit/s over unshielded twisted copper wire pairs. This tutorial paper provides a high-level overview of the key issues related to these digital subscriber line (DSL) technologies, including the environment in which they must operate, ...

Telecommunication services and networks are in the process of significant change. This paper examines whether asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), thought at one time to be the only viable broadband communication protocol, providing end-to-end connectivity for all applications, still has a role to play in the evolving telecommunication environment. The paper considers the trends in network integratio... View full abstract»

Convergence of the fixed and mobile communication services (fixed and mobile convergence, or FMC) was the discussion subject for a panel session at the 6th IEE Conference on Telecommunications. Three invited speakers presented views from the perspectives of a fixed operator, a mobile operator and the business environment. This paper draws on the material presented and includes additional informati... View full abstract»

A new type of virtual network is presented which allows the virtual network owner to exert control over their network resources in a completely flexible fashion. These virtual networks use a technique known as `switchlets', which result from partitioning the resources, both physical and logical, of a switch. Each partition is a switchlet. Switchlets from different physical switches may be intercon... View full abstract»

Optical networks are playing an increasingly important part in meeting the demand for communication bandwidth. Especially since the introduction of wavelength division multiplexing techniques optical network management has received increasing attention. This paper describes optical network management in terms of an architectural framework that can be applied not only to optical line systems but al... View full abstract»
Aims & Scope
Published from 1989-2002, the Electronics & Communication Engineering Journal aimed to inform practising professional engineers who were involved in electronics and communications by providing coverage of new developments in a serious technical, but not in an overformal or academic manner.
Topics covered included: Measurement and instrumentation; circuit design, simulation and CAD; signal and image processing, coding; microwaves, antennas and radio propagation; optoelectronics; TV and sound broadcasting; telecommunication networks; radio and satellite communications; radar, sonar and navigation systems; and electromagnetic compatibility.
