    We argue for a time-driven approach for interactive multimedia communication applications. This is in sharp contrast to the traditional data-driven style almost universally adopted. The time-driven approach can take advantage of the multiple communication channels of various quality-of-service levels that will be supported by ATM networks. Such applications can rely on and take advantage of forms ... View full abstract»
