    The role of customer premises equipment (CPE) in the deployment of intelligent network capabilities is discussed. The evolution of CPE from traditional telephones, PBX switches, PC adjuncts, and key systems to high-grade audio, video and television media, and advanced consumer electronics systems is described. Future protocol requirements of the CPE and the providing of an interface to the user re... View full abstract»

    The role of technology in switching system evolution, which applies not only to the switch's internal components, but also to its network environment, is discussed. The role of the switch within a distributed services architecture is considered by reviewing the underlying changes that are taking place in computing and software technology, and in the switch interfaces to external networks, customer...

    The broadening of the bandwidth of the telecommunications network brings with it the need for faster higher-capacity switching systems. To meet this need, asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switching, optical switching, and other technologies are being pursued. The influence of this environment on networks is discussed from two aspects: the business administration aspect,which involves the issues of... View full abstract»

    Documentation image processing, an important information service made possible by greater network bandwidth and optical storage capacities in public communications networks, is discussed. Document image technology converts physical records and documents into digitized images for task processing and archival storage on magnetic or optical media. Imaging systems facilitate rapid retrieval and effici... View full abstract»

    The advantages of using integrated services digital networks (SDNs) as an infrastructure for telemedicine applications are discussed. The applications, developed in a Norwegian Telecom Research project, are grouped according to their use in the health services: telediagnosis, distance learning, medical information, and administrative health information. The telemedicine applications are reviewed, ... View full abstract»

    A phase representation of minimum shift keying (MSK), which is a general framework suitable for use with other continuous phase modulation (CPM) schemes, is discussed. The representation is used to show that MSK can be viewed as a coded-modulation scheme with an expanded signal set using Ungerboeck's set partitioning concept (see IEEE Trans. Inf. Theory, vol.IT-28, no.1, p.55-67, 1982). The proper... View full abstract»

    There are several technologies available for providing access using the embedded copper loop plant. However, none of these technologies can provide a high-bit-rate digital transport capability (1.544 Mb/s) over the existing loop plant. The authors describe continuing advances in both VLSI implementation and signal processing algorithms that are making it possible to provide the high-bit-rate digit... View full abstract»
