Multimedia data streams will form a major part of the new generation of applications in high-speed networks. Continuous media streams, however, require transmission with guaranteed performance. In addition, many multimedia applications will require peer-to-multipeer communication. Guaranteed performance can only be provided with resource reservation in the network, and efficient multipeer communication must be based on multicast support in the lower layers of the network.
Architecture and Prools for High-Speed Networks focuses on techniques for building the networks that will meet the needs of these multimedia applications. In particular two areas of current research interest in such communication systems are covered in depth. These are the prool related aspects, such as switched networks, ATM, MAC layer, network and transport layer; and the services and applications.
Architecture and Prools for High-Speed Networks contains contributions from leading world experts, giving the most up-to-date research available. It is an essential reference for all professionals, engineers and researchers working in the area of high-speed networks.

Editorial Reviews

For engineers and researchers working on high-speed multimedia networks, describes techniques for building networks that provide guaranteed performance with resource reservation, and efficient multipeer communication with multicast support in the lower layers. Focuses particularly on the protocol related aspects, such as switched networks, ATM, the MAC layer, and the network and transport layer; and the services and applications. The 16 papers are updated from an August-September 1993 workshop in Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
