    Asynchronous time division multiplexing (ATDM) is a technique for sharing a transmission line by carrying user data in small fixed-size cells, usually no larger than 64 bytes. The technique is attractive because it can simultaneously support voice, video, and data communications at a variety of transmission speeds and using many protocols. A retrospective account of three experimental ATDM network... View full abstract»

    The high-performance parallel interface (HIPPI), a simplex point-to-point interface for transferring data at peak data rates of 800 or 1600 Mb/s over distances of up to 25 m, is reviewed. The HIPPI physical layer, framing protocol, link encapsulation, its mapping to fiber channels, mapping to IPI-3, switch control, fiber extender, and tester are described. The role of HIPPI in networks is discusse... View full abstract»

    It is argued that the technology needed to support the emerging broadband integrated services digital network technology (B-ISDN) is on the horizon, but the deployment of this technology in the telecommunication plant will not be sufficient to make B-ISDN a commercial success. Two corequisites for ensuring the long-term success of the emerging B-ISDN include stimulating the demand for bandwidth by... View full abstract»
