    Remote procedure call (RPC) mechanisms over the US Department of Defense transmission control protocol. (TCP) can produce behavior analogous to the silly window syndrome because of a mismatched interface between the socket and the TCP modules. The detection and diagnosis of the problem are addressed. Some pointers to a design approach that could avoid the problems of mismatched communication layer... View full abstract»

    The initial deployment of SONET products in the network has raised the issue of how to manage bandwidth allocations and use network management features to support existing and future network services. The requirements for managing the new transport with the features available, using management systems in existence today, are addressed. It is concluded that SONET will require new solutions in manag... View full abstract»

    Moving routing tables from RAM to custom or semicustom VLSI can lower cost and boost performance. The routing table problem is presented by discussing the available architectures and how they are related. It is shown that simple table lookup is just a special case of the standard trie structure and that the use of partitioning combined with the trie structure provides a continuum that can lead to ...
