    Two main advantages of incorporating satellites into future computer networks are considered to be the large communication bandwidth of a satellite channel and the capability of using broadcast communications to nodes distributed over a very large geographical area. The inherent problem with satellites is that a large propagational delay is required by packet transmissions. A hierarchical VLAN mod... View full abstract»

    A study that models the possible configurations of a proposed packet-transport-equipment (PTE)-based university campus network is reported. The function of these PTEs is to receive/forward data packets from/to remote LANs or workstations. The objective is to determine whether the traffic capacity of the proposed network can handle the projected university workload, how different applications impac... View full abstract»

    A reliable distributed environment (RDE) is proposed that is based on an efficient and reliable extension to datagram communications. The concept of coupled relation is introduced to measure the degree to which distributed environments are reliable. View sections, a programming construct that protects against changes in node status (available or not), as support for distributed computing tasks, ar... View full abstract»

    Results presented in earlier work (IEEE J. Sel. Areas Commun. vol.6, no.1, p.190-6, 1988) in which an edge-to-edge protocol was supported between network gateways are reviewed and extended. Emphasis was placed on studying effects of varying the protocol, and, in particular, varying the acknowledgement methods used in window flow-control. The results were obtained with a simulation of a small packe... View full abstract»

    A protocol called modified broadcast access method (MBRAM) is presented that is based on the broadcast recognizing access method (BRAM). The goal was to develop a protocol that would support large file transfers from priority nodes (such as image workstations) and still provide reasonable access for nonpriority nodes for normal traffic, using standard Ethernet hardware. Initial results and future-... View full abstract»
