    The Internet has been evolving from its origins in the early 1970s, based on work sponsored by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. While the basic design was known in 1973 and first published in 1974 and the system essentially deployed in the academic and military communities on January 1, 1983, much has happened in the intervening 20 years. The first commercial Internet services e... View full abstract»

    This paper explores the role of the standards process in shaping the future evolution of the Internet. It addresses the industry's need to develop and deploy unique functionality and how it interacts with the communicating users' need for universally available and consistently implemented services, and the role that the standard bodies play in resolving this tension. A brief overview of the organi... View full abstract»

    As the Internet becomes increasingly widely used and as individuals and businesses come to depend on it ever more, disruptions of service are less and less tolerable. Disruptions occur either because of a natural disaster, e.g., a fire or equipment failure, or because of a deliberate attack. Protecting against natural disasters is generally easier than protecting against malicious attacks. Our foc... View full abstract»

    This paper provides an overview of service level agreements (SLAs) in IP networks. It looks at the typical components of an SLA and identifies three common approaches that are used to satisfy SLAs in IP networks. The implications of using the approaches in the context of a network service provider, a hosting service provider, and an enterprise are examined. While most providers currently offer a s...

    Based on an analysis of the statistical nature of IP traffic and the way this impacts the performance of voice, video, and data services, we question the appropriateness of commonly proposed quality-of-service mechanisms. This paper presents the main points of this analysis. We also discuss pricing issues and argue that many proposed schemes are overly concerned with congestion control to the detr...

    The deployment of IPv6 has become an issue of strategic importance for many economies, and telecom operators and ISPs play a key role in ensuring the availability of this new protocol on broadband access networks. It cannot be denied that the complexities exist in deploying IPv6 in an IPv4 world. Knowing this, telecom operators and ISPs have to ensure a viable transition strategy that takes into a...

    Web technologies were initially used for Web publishing and advertising in enterprises. However, over the years Web technologies have merged with other distributed computing technologies and assumed a vital role in satisfying enterprise business needs. This paper takes a systematic and practical look at Web evolution from static HTML to Web-enabled business components that are at the foundation of... View full abstract»

  • Video delivery technologies for large-scale deployment of multimedia applications

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):1439 - 1451
    Cited by:  Papers (52)  |  Patents (17)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (560 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Deployment of a large-scale multimedia streaming application requires an enormous amount of server and network resources. The simplest delivery technique allocates server resources for each specific request. This technique is very expensive and is not scalable to support a very large user community such as the Internet. Hence, the past decade has witnessed tremendous research efforts to facilitate... View full abstract»

    The existing overlaid data network architecture deployed by most service providers has shown its shortcomings in supporting professional business services due to its complexity and high cost. This paper introduces a new optical transport technology that is based on Ethernet but integrates all the required features to consolidate multiple layers below the IP layer in the existing architecture into ...

    In this paper, we consider the evolution of telephone networks from time-division multiplexing circuit switching to packet switching and, in particular, to packet switching-based on Internet Protocol (IP-supported telephony). We analyze IP-supported telephony design solutions by proposing a layered reference model in which each layer is associated to a subset of the functions that support telephon... View full abstract»

    Novel user-oriented networked systems will simultaneously exploit a variety of wired and wireless communication modalities to offer different levels of quality of service (QoS), including reliability and security to users, low economic cost, and performance. Within a single such user-oriented network, different connections themselves may differ from each other with respect to QoS needs. Similarly,... View full abstract»

    One of the primary goals of the CA*net 4 network is to provide end users with the ability, on a peer-to-peer basis, to provision, manage, and control the routing of their own lightpaths across the network without the need to signal or request services from any central network management authority or server. A novel approach to such end-user management and control of lightpaths is described, which ... View full abstract»

    In 1920, the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) selected Guglielmo Marconi as the third recipient of its Medal of Honor. He was honored for "his pioneer work in radio telegraphy." The Italian-born inventor-entrepreneur had become world famous for his success in transmitting wireless signals over long distances in the early 20th century. The IRE Medal of Honor was by no means his first award. He ha... View full abstract»
