    The current status of ISDN in the Americas, Europe, and the Pacific region is reviewed. The connectivity among these regions is also discussed. To the best of the authors' knowledge, there is limited ISDN deployment in the remaining regions of the world. The status of the network infrastructure is first reviewed with particular emphasis on those elements needed for ISDN deployment: digital transpo... View full abstract»

    The author discusses the ISDN Staged Transport System (STS). The STS illustrates how an ISDN network can be used as a flexible distribution medium for directing real-time signals over a WAN to a staged transport server. Although the signal feeds distributed by the STS application are audio voice grade circuits (VGCs), the architecture lends itself to other signal types, such as video. Moreover, IS...

    Widespread use of personal computers (PCs) and PC networks is leading to a strongly increased demand for WAN data services in terms of number of accesses and required bandwidth. Narrowband ISDN (N-ISDN) and broadband ISDN (B-ISDN) have the potential to satisfy, respectively, the existing and developing requirements. However, a flexible evolution path needs to be identified for the provision of ISD... View full abstract»

    Many large industries are beginning to decide whether they will use simple, low-speed data communications. These low-speed services may be the first data services that most small business and residence customers buy because the market already needs them. As a group, they are called teleaction services. The term teleaction means "acting at a distance." The actions include reading or writing some in... View full abstract»

    The article provides a review of the standards and architectures that can be used to implement teleaction services. Although they are already penetrating the market and are recognized as having substantial potential for growth, the work on standardization of these services is not complete. The article analyzes the variety of implementation architectures and standards that may be deployed; illustra... View full abstract»

  • Sharing issues between FPLMTS and fixed services

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):74 - 78
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (910 KB)

    Any sharing between future public land mobile telecommunication systems (FPLMTS) and fixed services must be on the basis of maintaining high reliability and performance for both services. The focus of this article is to examine the following. Can mobile and fixed systems share the same frequency band? How much unwanted signal power is received by each system from the other? How does the unwanted s... View full abstract»
