    Optical network technology will soon allow wavelength-multiplexed optical channels to be carried to multiple terminals, giving rise to new broadband network architectures and protocols. Two stages of evolution are anticipated, with transmission-only structures appearing first and networks with optical switching appearing later. Some basic transmission considerations relating to system operation ov... View full abstract»

    Background information on networking and switching is provided, and the various architectures that have been considered for fast packet switches are described. The focus is solely on switches designed to be implemented electronically. A set of definitions and a brief description of the functionality required of fast packet switches are given. Three basic types of packet switches are identified: th... View full abstract»

    The features, architectures, and principles of key media access control (MAC) schemes for high-speed LAN and MAN systems are categorized and reviewed. These architectures are related to the hierarchical structure of a telecommunications network. An overview is given of the MAC protocol operation of key local- and metropolitan-area network systems, as defined by standards committees, covering curre... View full abstract»

  • Reconstruction of two-dimensional signals from level crossings

    Recent results indicate that reconstruction of two-dimensional signals from crossings of one level requires, in theory and practice, extreme accuracy in positions of the samples. The representation of signals with one-level crossings can be viewed as a tradeoff between bandwidth and dynamic range, in the sense that if the available bandwidth is sufficient to preserve the level crossings accurately...

  • The evolution of electrical and electronics engineering and the Proceedings of the IRE: 1938-62

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):5 - 30
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2772 KB)

    The author chronicles the way in which the Proceedings of the IRE documented and influenced the changes in electronic devices and systems that took place during the years from 1938 through 1962. The first years of this period were dominated by World War II and the development of radar systems and related devices such as the high-power cavity magnetron and the klystron. The first decade after the w... View full abstract»

  • Rationale, directions, and issues surrounding high speed networks

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):94 - 120
    Cited by:  Papers (10)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1708 KB)

    An examination is made of the rationale behind the need for ever higher networking speeds, the technological developments that are making them possible on a commercial basis, the directions being taken in their development, and the issues surrounding their construction and use. Roadblocks to providing high-speed networks are discussed. The impact of standardization efforts on development efforts i... View full abstract»

  • Routing and flow control in high-speed wide-area networks

    Publication Year: 1990, Page(s):204 - 221
    Cited by:  Papers (25)  |  Patents (21)

    The routing and flow control techniques developed for wide-area, local-area, and metropolitan-area networks are surveyed. A classification that shows the characteristics that are desirable for high-speed wide-area networks is developed. On the basis of the classification, techniques that should and should not be considered for future high-speed networks are identified. In particular, an attempt is... View full abstract»

    The basic concepts and building blocks in multirate digital signal processing (DSP), including the digital polyphase representation, are reviewed. Recent progress, as reported by several authors in this area, is discussed. Several applications are described, including subband coding of waveforms, voice privacy systems, integral and fractional sampling rate conversion (such as in digital audio), di...
