    Describes a framework for itinerant agents that can be used to implement secure, remote applications in large, public networks such as the Internet or the IBM Global Network. Itinerant agents are programs, dispatched from a source computer, that roam among a set of networked servers until they accomplish their task. This is an extension to the client/server model in which the client sends a portio... View full abstract»

    A CDMA-based system concept has been developed with a flexible air interface. A real-time testbed has been built based on this advanced, flexible concept demonstrating some of its key features. Variable bit rate speech up to 16 kb/s and data up to 128 kb/s in the connection-oriented and connection-less modes can be demonstrated. The testbed is used in a validation program assessing how well the CO... View full abstract»
