    We are now witnessing the earliest, experimental stage of electronic marketplace (e-marketplace) development. Most firms are focusing on exchanges with fixed auction rules applied to relatively simple goods and services. Many exchanges will fail due to bad timing or inappropriate choices in business details or technical implementations, but the winners will play a huge role in the worldwide econom...

    Suppose some autonomous shopbot agents had been representing us by dealing with a vendor's pricebot, and suppose they didn't share an agent communication language (ACL). What should they know at a fundamental level, what could each point to, and how could they establish a common language? Recent research at the University of Texas at Arlington has shown that agents first establish a common vocabul... View full abstract»

  • IP-over-satellite: Internet connectivity blasts off

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):84 - 89
    Cited by:  Papers (8)

    Many emerging broadband network technologies are dependent upon terrestrial based physical wiring to support megabit- and gigabit-per-second transmission rates. But the thirst for Internet connectivity and high performance remains unquenched. It cannot, and should not, be constrained by the physical wire. Wireless radio frequency (RF) mechanisms (such as general packet radio service, or GPRS) are ... View full abstract»

    Packet-over-Sonet and IP-over-ATM are two ways to build high-speed Internet backbones. The work presented maps the parameters for Internet-standard integrated services onto ATM technical parameters and quantifies the performance of each architecture in terms of admissible connections carrying multimedia traffic. Results suggest that ATM networks will not be competitive with pure IP infrastructures... View full abstract»

  • QoS-sensitive flows: issues in IP packet handling

    Publication Year: 2000, Page(s):48 - 57
    Cited by:  Papers (9)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (124 KB)

    IP-based networks were never designed for real time traffic, yet QoS support in such networks is needed to accommodate both global use and the more demanding applications now emerging. Changes in packet handling, in particular, will help provide QoS support in IP networks. The article focuses on the issues and principles concerning router modification for IP packet handling View full abstract»

    Mobile agents offer much promise, but agent mobility and Internet openness make coordination more difficult. Mobile Agent Reactive Spaces (MARS), a Linda-like coordination architecture with programming features, can handle a heterogeneous network while still allowing simple and flexible application design View full abstract»

    The Drexel Network Toolkit is a software package for testing various approaches to QoS on IP-based networks. It uses Linux and DiffServ packet-marking primitives to classify and prioritize packets. DNT was used in a project to evaluate satellite based IP delivery for multimedia applications in telemedicine and telemaintenance View full abstract»

    Web servers and browsers typically use cookies to capture information for subsequent communications, which provides continuity and state across HTTP connections. At present, Internet e-commerce is somewhat limited in using cookies because sensitive information cannot be securely stored and communicated in typical cookies. Secure cookies offer a potential solution to this problem View full abstract»
