    In the shared-memory switch architecture, output links share a single large memory, in which logical FIFO queues are assigned to each link. Although memory sharing can provide a better queuing performance than physically separated buffers, it requires carefully designed buffer management schemes for a fair and robust operation. This article presents a survey of the buffer management methods that h... View full abstract»

    In the practical transmission of compressed still images, bit errors may occur, which probably result in desynchronization and packet loss. In packet-switched networks, network congestion also results in packet loss. This survey article reviews the error resilience factors that must be faced by a robust image encoder and decoder (codec). The article begins with the enumeration of the different kin... View full abstract»

    Computer telephony integration (CTI) enhances the capability and flexibility of the switches or the network end equipment by computer technology. This article introduces the components of CTI such as switch-to-host interfaces, application programming interfaces, and resource architectures. Then we describe two CTI configurations: first-party call control and third-party call control. CTI-based tel... View full abstract»

    A multicast routing protocol should be scalable, robust, use minimal network overhead, consume minimal memory resources, inter-operate with other multicast routing protocols, and be easy to implement. The mechanism used to manage the multicast group (participants join and leave throughout the multicast session) is an important issue when designing a protocol for multicast routing. Other design cho... View full abstract»

    It is useful to reconsider the central questions of network management: What should be monitored? How should it be interpreted? How should this analysis be used to control the network behavior? Management protocol standards provide syntactic structures to organize and access managed information. Such a syntactic framework can be useful in enabling systematic answers to these questions. However, th... View full abstract»

    Recently, the interest in broadband satellite multimedia (BSM) systems has grown rapidly. Advancements in transmission technology have led to the availability of low-cost satellite earth terminals. The superior remote access capabilities of satellite networks are foreseen to provide broadband services to geographically diverse user groups. The desire to support a wide range of broadband services i... View full abstract»
