    The authors consider linear lightwave networks with a single waveband that have N inputs, each with a transmitter, and N outputs, each with a receiver, interconnected by optical links, broadcast stars, and wavelength-independent 2×2 switches. The transmitters and receivers can tune to C different wavelengths. The authors describe a rearrangeably nonblocking networ... View full abstract»

    The authors present an algorithm for the multihour dimensioning of telephone networks operating with residual capacity adaptive routing. The method is based on dimensioning techniques for networks operating with nonhierarchical alternate routing and relies on a conservative approximation for traffic evaluation. It is a decomposition method involving a set of fixed-point equations which are solved ... View full abstract»

  • Random early detection gateways for congestion avoidance

    The authors present random early detection (RED) gateways for congestion avoidance in packet-switched networks. The gateway detects incipient congestion by computing the average queue size. The gateway could notify connections of congestion either by dropping packets arriving at the gateway or by setting a bit in packet headers. When the average queue size exceeds a present threshold, the gateway ... View full abstract»

  • Effective bandwidths for multiclass Markov fluids and other ATM sources

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):424 - 428

    The authors show the existence of effective bandwidths for multiclass Markov fluids and other types of sources that are used to model ATM traffic. More precisely, it is shown that when such sources share a buffer with deterministic service rate, a constraint on the tail of the buffer occupancy distribution is a linear constraint on the number of sources. That is, for a small loss probability one c... View full abstract»

  • A histogram-based model for video traffic behavior in an ATM multiplexer

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):446 - 459

    The authors introduce a model based on arrival rate histograms for characterizing the behavior of an ATM buffer when it is carrying variable bit rate video traffic. Traffic smoothing on a frame-by-frame basis allows a quasistatic approximation that accurately predicts results such as buffer occupancy distributions and cell loss rates to be made. Convolving individual source histograms allow predic... View full abstract»

  • Connection establishment in high-speed networks

    Protocols for establishing, maintaining, and terminating connections in packet-switched networks have been studied, and numerous standards have been developed to address this problem. The authors reexamine connection establishment in the context of a high-speed packet network, introduce a protocol for connection establishment/takedown that is appropriate for such a network, and explain its advanta...

  • A name model for nested group communication

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):414 - 423
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (988 KB)

    Group communication permits a single sender to communicate with multiple receivers. A nested group permits one or more of the receivers to be itself a group. Nested groups are particularly useful for reducing communication traffic on internetwork links and supporting subnetwork autonomy. A name graph model is used to characterize nested groups and formalize the problems of loops and duplications. ... View full abstract»

  • A faster UDP [user datagram protocol]

    As an experiment in protocol optimizations, the authors undertook to improve the performance of a stateless protocol, namely the user datagram protocol (UDP) in the 4.3 BSD Unix kernel. The authors describe the successful optimizations that were done, along with measurements that shows a UDP performance improvement of between 25-35% on CISC and RISC systems, and overall kernal improvement of betwe...

  • Improved queueing analysis of shared buffer switching networks

    The authors describe several methods for analyzing the queueing behavior of switching networks with flow control and shared buffer switches. They compare the various methods on the basis of accuracy and computation speed, where the performance metric of most concern is the maximum throughput. The best of the methods accurately predicts throughput for multistage networks constructed from large swit... View full abstract»

  • Analysis of the effects of SS7 message discard schemes on call completion rates during overload

    The author considers the performance of a Signaling System Number 7 network when the routing processors, as opposed to transmission facilities, of signaling transfer points are overloaded. The choice of overload controls in such a situation is implementation-dependent, with an option of simply discarding messages in excess of the signaling transfer point (STP) processing capability. It is this opt... View full abstract»
