    Many compensative measures have been proposed recently the make the cell loss in ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) networks subjectively imperceptible. These schemes include the simple automatic repeat quest (ARQ) scheme, error concealment by command refreshment, appropriate queueing disciple and priority switching design and layered source coding schemes. The authors summarize these efforts and, i... View full abstract»

    The authors propose a dynamic channel allocation strategy in an integrated services digital network (ISDN) based on traffic characteristics and channel utilization. Conventional channel allocation schemes such as complete sharing channel allocation, complete allocation, and moving boundary channel allocation are examined and compared with the proposed dynamic channel allocation scheme. An analytic... View full abstract»

    The author presents a generic architecture for interconnecting LANs (local area networks) through the ISDN (integrated services digital network) bearer services, particularly the frame relay bearer service. The architecture is derived from the IEEE 802.1 MAC (medium access control) bridge and ISDN frame relay standards. An algorithm for MAC/ISDN address resolution that makes minimal use of the WAN...
