    The process of categorizing packets into “flows” in an Internet router is called packet classification. All packets belonging to the same flow obey a predefined rule and are processed in a similar manner by the router. For example, all packets with the same source and destination IP addresses may be defined to form a flow. Packet classification is needed for non-best-effort services, s... View full abstract»

    Packet classification is a fundamental and critical operation to be performed in networking equipment such as switches and routers. The types of classification to be performed encompass a wide range, from well-understood operations such as route table lookups to complex packet identification involving multiple fields in the packet. Furthermore, the advent of application-aware network devices deman... View full abstract»

    Due to the rapid growth of traffic in the Internet, backbone links of several gigabits per second are commonly deployed. To handle gigabit-per-second traffic rates, the backbone routers must be able to forward millions of packets per second on each of their ports. Fast IP address lookup in the routers, which uses the packet's destination address to determine for each packet the next hop, is theref... View full abstract»

    We analyze the performance of a commercially available Gigabit Ethernet adapter, using TCP/IP running on a Windows NT operating system. We show how the performance varies with number of clients, sessions per client, number of system processors, and speed of system processors. Throughout, we discuss how the Ethernet protocol, adapter hardware, operating system, and device driver interact to produce... View full abstract»

    This article describes iSMS, a platform that integrates IP networks with the short message service in mobile telephone systems. iSMS provides a generic gateway for creating and hosting wireless data services for mobile stations. Our approach does not require any modification to the mobile telephone system architecture. The iSMS system can be quickly developed and operated by a third party or end u... View full abstract»
