    With respect to network timing, the introduction of SONET equipment into the public network offers both problems and opportunities. Wide-scale deployment of SONET equipment and the use of SONET line timing for reference distribution will eventually provide improved timing performance in terms of both wander and jitter. One of the main motivations for developing the SONET architecture was to establ... View full abstract»

    The asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL) takes advantage of the existing twisted-pair copper loop that currently provides customer access to the telephone network. An ADSL modem is placed at each end of the loop to create a high speed access link above the existing telephone service. Since ADSL makes use of the existing copper telephone line, its application in the telephone network can conce... View full abstract»

    Parallel scrambling techniques enable low-rate realizations of high-speed scrambling processes in today's lightwave transmission, which otherwise might be impossible due to technology limitations. Such parallel scrambling techniques are now available for frame synchronous scrambling (FSS), distributed sample scrambling (DSS), and self-synchronous scrambling (SSS), in bit-interleaved as well as byt...

    The concept of providing energy conservation programs with monitoring and control via two-way communication (TWCC) systems will be one of the solutions that utilities will employ in the conservation of the nation's valuable natural resources. The development of microelectronic technology is changing the manner in which meters will be read. There are many methods currently available in the market t... View full abstract»

    The benefits of the hybrid fiber/coax (HFC) architecture for the delivery of interactive broadband services have been widely discussed in the past few years. The cable television industry began deployment of this infrastructure in 1989 to support the broadcast video business. Recently, domestic telephone companies have looked at various degrees of HFC implementation, ranging from the delivery of b... View full abstract»

    The flexibility of the asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) technique to integrate diverse traffic using a single network platform, and the scalability of the synchronous optical network (SONET) to support various transmission speeds up to gigabit per second ranges, have contributed to the adoption of these standards in the future public telecommunications network. Presently, the networking of superco... View full abstract»
