    This article proposes a network paradigm called the single-server-view network as the basis for networks in the 21st century, when the value of a network to users will be based on the services provided rather than data communication capability. Based on our paradigm, we propose a double-plane network architecture, consisting of a simplified data forwarding plane and a service control plane, that p... View full abstract»

    This article describes the main challenges of implementing an end-to-end architecture for delivery of high-quality, IP-based residential TV services to residential customers. The IP-based approach can be implemented with an IP multicast overlay network with traditional routers or use IP-multicast-aware ATM switching systems. Both approaches use IP multicast to transport MPEG-2 broadcast video and ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (72 KB)

    Today's change in telecom business structure and logic is primarily driven by new datacom technologies. As network structures and cost topologies are in many respects turned upside down, so the business structure will be. One conclusion is that since access is the stronghold of the new technologies, there is a strong local advantage. This means that we will move toward a business arena in which bu...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (60 KB)

    We propose a mechanism to perform fast handover in IP-based wireless networks for real-time applications such as Internet telephony and videoconferencing. Our proposal is designed to reestablish the communication session traffic flow quickly and to minimize the service disruption delay that occurs during mobile IP handover. In this scheme, we propose two different mechanisms to handle micromobilit... View full abstract»
