    In the same way that the IMAP protocol provides secure, ubiquitous access to a user's email, an analogous protocol is desirable to enable user access to an organized collection of URL links that comprise a private mapping of the Web document space. This paper describes the design and staged implementation of a SLINKY server that meets these goals. View full abstract»

    In this paper, we propose and discuss a universal digital simulation model for synchronization networks, which can be applied to SONET/SDH networks of arbitrary structures. This model is derived from the models of the slave clock and of the synchronization link, which take into consideration all important impairments such as jitter, wander, frequency offset, phase hop, as well as phase and clock n...

    Speech quality, with cell losses in an ATM network, has been evaluated previously using random cell loss rates. However, it has been shown that cell loss behavior for speech transmission in ATM is more appropriately described by the burst model due to the burstiness properties of the aggregate voice cell arrival process. A mathematical model, called the burst model for cell loss behavior in an ATM... View full abstract»

    A new multicast routing algorithm for reducing congestion is presented. The algorithm uses efficient routing by transmitting multicast packets across fewer links in the network. The algorithm balances the use of network nodes and links by reducing packet duplication in the nodes. The computation time of the algorithm is short. The results show that the algorithm can find the multicast paths by usi... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (384 KB)

    Roaming agents threaten a server with theft of assets, system resources and reputation. Generally ignored is the reciprocal threat of server against agent. Not only might a server steal the assets, resources, and reputation of an agent, but it might actually kill the agent. The central security concern for systems that allow agents to roam is how to establish trust, and how to limit risk for both ... View full abstract»

    Multimedia streams usually have an inherent hierarchy and an inter-independency of subsequent blocks in their data structures. Dealing with these features within the operating system and the network brings a global resource usage improvement. We propose a new method for media scaling based on two complementary techniques: circular buffers and filtering. We describe an MPEG distributed application ... View full abstract»
