    The use of coding error control is an integral part of the design of modern communication systems. Capacity-approaching codes such as turbo and LDPC codes, discovered or rediscovered in the past decade, offset near-Shannon-limit performance on the AWGN channel with rather low implementation complexity and are therefore increasingly being applied for error control in various fields of data communic...

    The stream control transmission protocol (STCP) is being standardized by the IEFT as a reliable transport protocol to transport SS7signaling messages over IP networks. Due to its attractive features such as multistreaming and multihoming, SCTP has received much attention from the network community, in terms of both research and development. This article introduces the main features of SCTP, and di... View full abstract»

    Several solutions are proposed to extend storage area networking solutions over distances of hundreds to thousands of kilometers. Native fibre channel or end-to-end fibre channel-based solutions can be offered over long distances using SONET-based networks. Protocols such as Internet SCSI (iSCSI), Internet fibre channel protocol (iFCP) and fibre channel over TCP/IP (FCIP) are being proposed to ena... View full abstract»

    The development of power line communication systems requires detailed knowledge of the channel properties, such as transfer function, interference scenario, and channel capacity in order to choose suitable transmission methods. This article presents appropriate power line channel models, which form the basis for the design of a channel emulator. Such a device turns out to be extremely helpful for ... View full abstract»

    A definition and measurement of quality of service for networked virtual environments (NVEs) presents many challenges, in part due to subjective and qualitative description of users' preferences for NVE-based applications. QoS can be provided, in general, as a per-application service, a network layer option, or both. Many of the proposed QoS architectures for NVE-based applications include the per...

    Virtual reality services may be considered a good representative of advanced services in the new-generation network. The focus of this article is to address quality of service support for VR services in the context of the UMTS QoS framework specified by the 3G standardization forum, the Third Generation Partnership Project. We propose a classification of VR services based on delivery requirements ... View full abstract»
