  • A low cost approximation for a controlled load service in a bridged/switched LAN environment

    Publication Year: 2000 , Page(s): 103 - 117

    This paper reports the design and the implementation results of a Controlled Load service in a bridged/switched Local Area Network (LAN). In contrast to other approaches, the service was built based on traffic aggregation and simple two level Static Priority scheduling within LAN switches. All complex control functions such as the per-flow packet classification, policing and traffic reshaping are ... View full abstract»

  • Performance comparison of layer 3 switches in cases of flow- and topology-driven connection setup

    The layer 3 switch enables us to transmit IP datagrams fast using the cut-through technique. There are mainly two cases in establishing connections; one is the flow-driven case and the other is the topology-driven one. In this paper, we analyze the cut-through rate, the datagram waiting time and the mis-order rate as performance measure of both cases and compare these performances. In the analysis...

    The Differentiated Services architecture provides router mechanisms for aggregate traffic, and edge mechanisms for individual flows, that together can be used to build services with varying delay and loss behaviors. In this paper, we compare the loss and delay behaviors that can be provided using the services based on combinations of two router mechanisms, threshold dropping and priority schedulin...

  • On managing traffic over virtual private network links

    Publication Year: 2000 , Page(s): 138 - 146

    A Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides corporate networking between geographically dispersed company sites. VPN sites consist of Local Area Networks (LANs) interconnected over a public network infrastructure, through virtual links. The goal of this work is to develop a control model able to manage traffic on these links. By maximizing bandwidth utilization on each link, an optimum balance for th... View full abstract»

  • Packet management techniques for measurement based end-to-end admission control in IP networks

    Publication Year: 2000 , Page(s): 147 - 156

    End-to-end Measurement Based connection Admission Control (EMBAC) mechanisms have been proposed to support real-time flows quality of service requirements over a Differentiated Services Internet architecture. The EMBAC basic idea is to decentralize the admission control decision, by requiring each individual user to probe the network path during flow setup, and by basing the accept/reject decision...

  • BGRP: Sink-tree-based aggregation for inter-domain reservations

    Resource reservation must operate in an efficient and scalable fashion, to accommodate the rapid growth of the Internet. In this paper, we describe a distributed architecture for inter-domain aggregated resource reservation for unicast traffic. We also present an associated protocol, called the Border Gateway Reservation Protocol (BGRP), that scales well, in terms of message processing load, state... View full abstract»

  • QDMR: An efficient QoS dependent multicast routing algorithm

    Many distributed real-time applications, such as audio-and video-conferencing and collaborative systems, require multicast support from the underlying network. Multicasting involves the delivery of messages over a tree rooted at the sender and whose paths lead to the various receivers. A major objective of the routing protocol is to build a tree with minimum cost. Finding such a tree is known to b... View full abstract»

  • Measurement and interpretation of Internet packet loss

    Publication Year: 2000 , Page(s): 93 - 102

    We analyze a month of Internet packet loss statistics for speech transmission using three different sets of client/server host pairs. Our results exhibit packet loss that is highly bursty, with the majority of individual losses occurring in a relatively small number of bursts. We find that loss exhibits dependence in most cases, but is not always well-modeled as dependent. We introduce an analytic... View full abstract»
