    This month marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of Vannevar Bush’s seminal Atlantic Monthly article, "As We May Think." In our culture, 60 isn't as round a number as 50; a symposium on the article's legacy celebrated the 50th anniversary, but another ten years on, there is still much to examine in terms of what Bush predicted correctly and what he got wrong.

    Worldwide efforts to mitigate the digital divide between technology-haves and have-nots have moved forward in recent months. From small projects that are flourishing with donated equipment and nascent agreements with local telecommunications providers to a proposal to distribute 100 million to 200 million new laptops to schoolchildren in developing nations within two years, a new sense of possibil...

    Internet and IP telephony is rapidly capturing mindshare across the telecommunications world. Every major US telephone company and many cable TV companies are already offering services, or at least experimenting with them, and the number of independent service providers who aren't associated with ISPs continues to grow. Most of the Fortune 500 enterprises are considering enterprise-level deploymen... View full abstract»

  • Switching between fixed and call-adaptive playout: a per-call playout algorithm

    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (288 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Adaptive playout algorithms provide a popular way to calculate voice-over-IP (VoIP) packets' playout delay - the difference between the playout time at the receiver and the packet-generation time at the sender. The authors' proposed per-call adaptive algorithm uses network delays received from the VoIP gatekeeper to switch between fixed and call-adaptive playout. Their approach also reduces loss r...

  • Adaptive VoIP playout scheduling: assessing user satisfaction

    Delay and packet loss dramatically affect the quality of voice-over-IP (VoIP) calls and depend on the playout buffer scheme implemented at the receiver. The choice of playout algorithm can't be based on statistical metrics without considering the perceived end-to-end conversational speech quality. The authors present a method for evaluating various playout algorithms that extends the E-model conce... View full abstract»

    Voice over IP offers important opportunities for the telecommunications market to deploy more advanced services, but it must overcome many obstacles. Users expect toll-quality voice, which calls for end-to-end quality of service (QoS) - a challenge for IP service providers. To make VoIP attractive to end users, the only feasible and directly implementable alternative is to deploy an efficient mech... View full abstract»

    The Global Multimedia Collaboration System is designed to bridge H.323, Session Initiation Protocol, Access Grid clients, and 2.SG/3G cellular phones in audio-visual collaborations. One of its key components is the H.323 gateway, which lets H.323 terminals interact with other clients, providing complete conferencing control services. This system is designed to help scientists and students who have... View full abstract»

    IP networks, including the public Internet and private corporate intranets, have emerged as the common way to carry data, voice, and video - otherwise known as multimedia. Some technologies and protocols that help multimedia work over IP networks are already well established. Others will become more familiar as Internet multimedia becomes more prevalent.

    To help address pressing problems with information overload, researchers have developed personal agents to provide assistance to users in navigating the Web. To provide suggestions, such agents rely on user profiles representing interests and preferences, which makes acquiring and modeling interest categories a critical component in their design. Existing profiling approaches have only partially t... View full abstract»

    Although XML offers heterogeneous IT systems a new level of interoperability, it doesn't ensure that the various systems correctly interpret the data they receive. To address this, data engineering supports clear definitions for exchanged data elements. With model-based data engineering, organizations use a common reference model, which offers further clarity and performance improvements. Organiza... View full abstract»

    Early syndication and publishing protocols faced various problems related to interoperability, scalability, and extensibility. The Atom format and protocol builds on earlier efforts to establish an open, extensible, interoperable, and clearly specified framework for Web-logging applications. Atom has already been deployed on a wide variety of platforms. By closely examining previous syndication fo... View full abstract»

    The authors present a view-based approach for tracking personalized Web services. To guarantee proper handling of user preferences during Web service execution, a view can zoom into the specification that composes the Web services. As time advances, the location changes, or constraints on the environment are satisfied, the deployment of a view over a specification similarly progresses, mirroring t... View full abstract»

    Questions of ownership can block widespread software reuse. Forced to choose between negotiating rights to an existing component and reimplementing it, developers often take the latter option. At least in part, this is because they have less control when negotiating with an unknown party, and such negotiations can be expensive - in time, legal fees, knowledge, and the bookkeeping required to monit...

    Anyone intent on developing a Java-based framework for enterprise integration would do well to keep a few things in mind. One lesson is that today's Java programmers want to write Java, not stylized or otherwise "special" Java that must incorporate framework-specific artifacts. Another lesson is that standardizing a suitable integration-focused framework would be a good idea, given that the altern... View full abstract»
