    The basic foundation upon which an integrated services digital network (ISDN) is built is the ability to provide integrated access to a myriad of services through a single interface. Broadband ISDN (B-ISDN) extends these important concepts to provide a universal, long-term transport capability for all services. In addition to highlighting some of the motivations for B-ISDN, the authors briefly dis... View full abstract»

    A power combiner is proposed in which the signaling frames are obtained from a code set formed by nonorthogonal constant-weight codewords. The rate improvements of multiple-diode schemes using the combiner are presented, as compare to a single-diode pulse position modulation (PPM) scheme. Comparisons are made assuming the same alphabet size, and the same peak power per diode. As a function of the ... View full abstract»
