  • A handover protocol and network architecture for wireless extensions of ATM networks

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):133 - 140
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (84 KB)

    ATM protocols are connection oriented and migration of a mobile computer can therefore require rerouting of ATM connections while minimizing violation of Quality of Service specified for these connections. This implies that the handover process needs to be performed with small delay, minimal cell loss and no change in cell sequence. The problem is magnified by the fact that high-speed networks suc...

    Considering the limited bandwidth of the wireless link, it is important that the error control mechanism in wireless networks be spectrally efficient. Towards this end, we develop a hybrid error control architecture which takes into account the use of hierarchical video coding. Additionally, the architecture also includes a module which estimates the packet error rate and round trip time observed ... View full abstract»

    Voice over IP (or VoIP) is a common term to refer to the different protocols that are used to transport realtime voice and video and the necessary signaling by means of the Internet Protocol (IP). H.323 is an ITU-T standard for real-time voice and video communication over packet networks. During the past two years it has become the standard on the Internet for VoIP. Another relatively recent alter... View full abstract»

  • ASHMEN-an approach to ATM services over shared media networks

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):110 - 121
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (864 KB)

    The resource management for ASHMEN (ATM over Shared Media Networks) is concerned with Quality-of-Service (QoS) support and QoS provision in the local area networking environment in order to offer wide area ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) services over shared media networks. Based on a prototypical implementation, including the design of a highly flexible resource management scheme, empirical valu... View full abstract»

  • Matching differentiated services PHBs to ATM service categories-the AF to VBR case

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):37 - 43
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (264 KB)

    An important component of the differentiated services concept being developed by the IETF is traffic conditioning which includes the shaping of traffic at the boundaries of differentiated services domains, and also at interior nodes in order to match the requirements of particular link layer technologies. However shaping alters the characteristics of a traffic flow and is in danger of degrading in... View full abstract»

  • Network reliability enhancement by a self-healing algorithm

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):63 - 70
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (216 KB)

    The steady increase in the volume of data transmitted over ATM networks suggest that even a single link failure will seriously impact many service users. Thus, it is very important to develop restoration mechanisms that minimize the impact on the affected services. Self-healing algorithm can be used to automatically restore failed VPs (virtual paths) in backbone ATM networks. In this environment, ... View full abstract»

    Current network devices enable connectivity between end systems with support for routing with a defined set of protocol software bundled with the hardware. These devices do not support user customization or the introduction of new software applications. Programmable network devices allow for the dynamic downloading of customized programs into network devices allowing for the introduction of new pr... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a new model for aggregate hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) request rate. Specifically the model describes the marginal distribution of aggregate HTTP request rate at the second time scale for the aggregate Web traffic generated by a large number of users accessing the Web. The examination of three independent traces of Web traffic shows that the marginal distribution of HTTP ... View full abstract»

    Network performance, for the engineer designing traffic management protocols, is the key issue as it ensures that the network is functioning within its safe operating limits and that users of various applications are satisfied with the service received. Thus, in the face of uncertainty regarding the true nature of the system and traffic traversing the system, robustness entails maximising the perf... View full abstract»

    AMnet is a framework for flexible and rapid service creation and provides primarily heterogeneous user-tailored group communication services, AMnet is based on Active and Programmable Networking technologies and uses active nodes (AMnodes) located within the network to execute so-called service modules for the provision of individual group communication services. It is, however not limited to grou... View full abstract»

    Wireless local area networks are a promising solution to support advanced data services in mobile environments. The IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN standard is emerging as a mature technology to support delay sensitive network services. In order to support these services the standard has proposed the use of a polling scheme; however, existing polling schemes require high communication overheads or suffer... View full abstract»

  • A novel method for video-on-demand via digital broadcast

    Publication Year: 1999, Page(s):44 - 52
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (116 KB)

    We propose a new method for the on-demand delivery of streaming media over a small number of multicast channels to large numbers of receivers called Truncated Exponential Partitioning (TEP). Objects delivered using TEP are consumed from the beginning to the end in a linear fashion. This allows their data to be segmented and carried in different channels that are scheduled so that each can arrive j... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a new rate-based source adaptation algorithm for packet-switching networks. The proposed scheme relies on binary notifications from the network to avoid congestion. The network nodes are supposed to estimate a fair share of source rate either based on a stored per-flow information or using a stateless approach. Binary notifications are sent to the sources, reflecting a positive... View full abstract»

    We have researched a regional personal computer (PC) communication network system to provide group communication services to regional community members cost-effectively. Its LAN-like environment enables pre-registered users to communicate with each other using a PC at any time. An STM-based system, which transfers Ethernet frames to/from users' PCs using HDLC (high-level data link control) protoco... View full abstract»

    IP Multicast is an important enabling service for the current and future Internet. With the explosive, growth of the Internet, a challenging issue facing IP multicast is scalability, in particular, the problem of multicast forwarding state and control explosion. In this paper, we propose a new methodology to address the multicast scalability problem for backbone domains Multicast Tunneling with Br... View full abstract»

    Fairness in the Internet is becoming a major obstacle for the introduction of commercial services. In this paper we address the problem of fairness with a slightly non-standard approach: we show that, in order to achieve fairness in the Internet, it is enough to provide good congestion control, without the need for explicit computation of fairness indexes. We first introduce a TCP-based congestion... View full abstract»
