    Because of their high flexibility, ATM networks have the potential to achieve two objectives: switch cost reduction and multi-level network availability. For that purpose, this article proposes to use virtual circuit (VC) route self-healing schemes to achieve a multiple-availability-level ATM network. Flexible multi-QoS logical ATM network (Full-Net), a new concept for ATM networks, is now being s... View full abstract»

    ATM network techniques have been actively researched and developed with the goal of realizing B-ISDN. ATM networks can transport signals of various services efficiently and economically, and offer the benefit of enhanced flexibility if the virtual path (VP) concept is adopted. Therefore, the ATM network will provide the infrastructure for B-ISDN. One of the most important themes in B-ISDN is the i... View full abstract»

    The Inter-American Telecommunication Commission (CITEL) is an entity of the Organization of American States (OAS). Prior to 1993, CITEL was a series of conferences that existed in various forms over the years since 1889. The CITEL Assembly in 1993 organized CITEL into four permanent committees: a Permanent Executive Committee (COM/CITEL) and three Permanent Consultative Committees (PCCs) to carry ...

    The capability of telecommunications networks to restore services affected by failures is a key consideration in designing a broadband network architecture. The authors describe the survivable transport network planning methods and tools of the Telecommunication Laboratories of DGT in Taiwan. The paper consists of three major parts: conventional survivable architecture planning, hubbing architectu... View full abstract»

    The authors present a restoration algorithm designed for a ring-based multimedia ATM architecture, which is characterized by the simplicity of the node structure allowing flexible network configurations and an efficient bandwidth management. They show how easily reliable connections can be implemented within such an architecture. Basically, restoration is implemented by rerouting the protected tra... View full abstract»

    Most developing countries use satellite technology for international rather than for domestic communication. In the future, there should be substantially increased domestic and regional use of satellite technology. The potential exists in this application for enormous increases in traffic, and the impact on developing countries' economies will be the greatest. In addition to the international link...

    The authors address the following questions. What does the current growth of the satellite market really mean for Latin America? What are the plans to cover the region with satellite systems? How will they impact the Latin American economy and more particularly its satellite industry? Is Latin America going satellite by itself and is it managing wireless implementation via satellite to the best of... View full abstract»
