  • The evolution of transmission and switching for integrated services digital networks

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):59 - 63
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1652 KB)

    This paper reviews the evolution of digital transmission and switching in a telecommunication network, and emphasizes the importance of integration of networks and services. The concept of an Integrated Digital Network and an Integrated Services Digital Network are introduced and a brief review is given of the repertoire of transmission systems available in the United Kingdom to realize such netwo...

  • Jitter in digital telecommunication networks

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):70 - 78
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1688 KB)

    Unless proper control is exercised in limiting the amplitude of jitter in future digital networks, serious degradations can arise. The important sources of jitter are identified and described. Trie manner in which jitter accumulates in a digital network is discussed with particular emphasis being given to accumulation along transmission systems. A brief review is given of the current status of jit... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1092 KB)

    The liability of a digital signal to error is one of the most significant transmission impairments experienced in a digital communication network. Consideration is given to the activities and status of studies within the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (CCITT). The sources of interference causing errors are discussed and an introduction is given to Hypothetical Referen... View full abstract»

  • Synchronization and slip performance in a digital network

    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1475 KB)

    The timing of signals and processes within integrated digital networks requires careful control in order to minimize signal degradation through the occurrence of slip. The paper discusses the slip mechanism and the alternative methods of its minimization, i.e. the use of high accuracy clocks working in a plesiochronous mode or the phase locking of nodal clocks to a reference clock. The progress of... View full abstract»

  • Performance evaluation in an ISDNߞdigital transmission impairments

    Publication Year: 1984
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1382 KB)

    This paper considers the performance evaluation of the future Integrated Services Digital Network. Emphasis is given to both the measurement and the instrumentation necessary to quantify the most important digital transmission impairments, jitter and errors. The trend towards non-intrusive measurement and automated testing made possible by advances in digital technology is reviewed View full abstract»
