    We survey advances in theories and models for Internet quality of service (QoS). We start with the theory of network calculus, which lays the foundation for support of deterministic performance guarantees in networks, and illustrate its applications to integrated services, differentiated services, and streaming media playback delays. We also present mechanisms and architecture for scalable support... View full abstract»

    The generalized multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS) is being developed as the control plane for the evolving photonic network. We describe how GMPLS can be used with mesh networks to provide efficient network resiliency. In particular we examine the key aspects of GMPLS that are used to support protection and restoration. We also study the various protection and restoration techniques, and we hi... View full abstract»

    As the broadband access technologies, such as DSL, cable modem, and gigabit Ethernet, are providing affordable broadband solutions to the Internet from home and the enterprise, it is required to build next generation routers with high-speed interfaces (e.g., 10 or 40 Gb/s) and large switching capacity (e.g., multipetabit). This paper first points out the issues of building such routers, such as me... View full abstract»

    During the Internet stock bubble, articles in the trade press frequently said that, in the near future, telephone traffic would be just another application running over the Internet. Such statements gloss over many engineering details that preclude voice from being just another Internet application. This paper deals with the technical aspects of implementing voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), wi... View full abstract»

    The growing diversity of services in the Internet is motivating research to improve measurability of traffic and Internet performance. This paper surveys current projects and tools for Internet performance monitoring, ranging from passive router-based traffic flow measurement methods to large-scale active performance monitoring projects. The tools and methods are discussed according to their proto... View full abstract»

    Architectures for Internet quality of service (QoS) have been under discussion for over a decade and, with the commercialization of the Internet, the topic has become increasingly important. This paper gives a background and history of QoS for the Internet, then introduces and motivates the differentiated services (Diffserv) approach. The major advantages of the Diffserv approach are that it is a ... View full abstract»

    As part of an historical study of streetlighting in London (UK), the article examines how the gas discharge lamps of 1930 indicated the way ahead but were not the complete answer. They needed special circuits, with an inductance to control the current and usually some way of producing a high voltage to strike the arc, but the higher efficiency compared with filament lamps made that worthwhile. The... View full abstract»
