    A.J. McAuley (IEEE/ACM Trans. Networking, vol.2, p.16-22, 1994) proposed a new family of error detection codes called weighted sum codes. In the present paper it is noted, that these codes are equivalent to lengthened Reed Solomon codes, resp. shortened version of lengthened Reed Solomon codes over GF(2/sup h/2/). It is also shown, that it is possible to use these codes for error correction of one... View full abstract»

    Considers single-hop lightwave networks with stations interconnected using wave division multiplexing. The stations are equipped with tunable transmitters and/or receivers. A predefined, wavelength-time oriented schedule specifies the slots and the wavelengths on which communication between any two pairs of stations is allowed to take place. The authors define a wide variety of schedules and devel... View full abstract»

  • A nonblocking architecture for broadband multichannel switching

    The paper investigates multichannel switching as a promising alternative to traditional single-channel switching where virtual paths established in a switch are between a single input channel and a single output channel. A particular non-blocking condition is derived for flip networks, which is exploited to realize a multichannel switching architecture that supports an arbitrary number of channel ...

  • An analysis of user input to an X.500 white pages directory service

    This paper analyzes user input to an X.500-based white pages directory service. The motivation for this study is that we can only optimize querying algorithms if we know what sort of queries people make. For example, do people mostly enter forenames and surnames, or surnames only; do people usually enter long organization names or sets of initials; do users enter the two-letter country codes. An a...

  • Cell loss analysis and design trade-offs of nonblocking ATM switches with nonuniform traffic

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):199 - 210
    Cited by:  Papers (10)

    In practical ATM switch design, a proper dimensioning of buffer sizes and a cost effective selection of speed-up factor should be considered to guarantee a specified cell loss requirement for a given traffic. Although a larger speed-up factor provides better throughput for the switch, increasing the speed-up factor involves greater complexity and cost. Hence, it may not be cost effective to increa...

  • METANET: principles of an arbitrary topology LAN

    The MetaNet is a scalable local area network (LAN) architecture with an arbitrary topology and a switch at each node (i.e., a switch based LAN). Its design provides on one hand a service in which any node can try to transmit asynchronously in a bursty manner without reservation as much as it can (as in traditional LAN), and on the other hand the network access and flow control ensure the following...

  • PROTON: a media access control protocol for optical networks with star topology

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):158 - 168
    Cited by:  Papers (13)

    A new multiple access protocol called PROTON (PROTocol for Optical Networks) is developed for optical local area networks based on a passive star topology. PROTON uses wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) and is highly bandwidth-efficient. One of the available wavelengths is used as a control channel. Time is divided into fixed-sized slots. The size of the slots is the same for the control and t... View full abstract»

  • Synchronizable test sequences based on multiple UIO sequences

    A test sequence generation method is proposed for testing the conformance of a protocol implementation to its specification in a remote testing system where both external synchronization and input/output operation costs are taken into consideration. The method consists of a set of transformation rules that constructs a duplexU digraph from a given finite state machine (FSM) representation of a pro... View full abstract»

    Discusses the allocation of the available capacity of a statistical multiplexer to serve a number of heterogeneous on-off sources, with the cell loss rate as the performance criterion. In order to avoid using potentially lengthy simulations, the authors have derived computationally efficient bounds and asymptotic approximations for the cell loss rate. The union of all partitions of the available c... View full abstract»

    Proposes and analyzes a recursive modular architecture for implementing a large-scale multicast output buffered ATM switch (MOBAS). A multicast knockout principle, an extension of the generalized knockout principle, is applied in constructing the MOBAS in order to reduce the hardware complexity (e.g., the number of switch elements and interconnection wires) by almost one order of magnitude. In the... View full abstract»
