    The range of user requirements on multicast protocols is so wide that no single protocol will ever satisfy them. The set of multicast protocols can be classified using the user requirements, and the architectures, mechanisms, communications patterns, and policies used to satisfy these requirements. We provide such a classification, and illustrate it with several example protocols chosen to cover t... View full abstract»

    In this tutorial, we give an introduction to optical burst switching and compare it with other existing optical switching paradigms. Basic burst assembly algorithms and their effect on assembled burst traffic characteristics are described first. Then a brief review of the early work on burst transmission is provided, followed by a description of a prevailing protocol for OBS networks called just-e... View full abstract»

    The resilient packet ring (RPR) IEEE 802.17 standards is under development as a new high-speed technology for metropolitan backbone networks. A key performance objective of PRP is to simultaneously achieve high utilization, spatial reuse, and fairness, an objective not achieved by current technologies such as SONET and Gigabit Ethernet or legacy ring technologies, such as FDDI. The core technical ... View full abstract»

    Applications offered to end users as value-added services, or more simple, services, are crucial for the survival and success of service providers. Two main sets of standards have emerged for Internet telephony: H.323 from the ITU-T and SIP from the IETF. Unfortunately, the related application development frameworks are rather weak. Parlay, a set of standard object-oriented and signaling protocol-... View full abstract»

    The shared risk link group (SRLG) has been widely recognized as a fundamental concept in layered network design by the industry. However, several issues related to SRLG protections that are of both theoretical interest and practical importance have not been explored fully. Two major issues are avoiding failures caused by "traps" in finding backup paths, and minimizing the total network capacity re... View full abstract»

    Many mapping schemes for parallel proxy servers have been proposed in previous research. The operations of these schemes are mainly URL-based, and therefore cannot fully benefit from the new persistent connection feature of HTTP/1.1. In this article we propose a site-based mapping scheme that forwards all requests targeting the same Web site to the same proxy server. This allows a proxy to leave t... View full abstract»
