High-Speed Networking for Multimedia Applications presents the latest research on the architecture and protocols for high-speed networks, focusing on communication support for distributed multimedia applications. This includes the two major issues of ATM Networking and quality of service for multimedia applications. It is to be expected that most of the bandwidth in future high-speed networks will be taken up by multimedia applications, transmitting digital audio and video. Traditional networking protocols are not suitable for this as they do not provide guaranteed bandwidth, end-to-end delay or delay jitter, nor do they have addressing schemes or routing algorithms for multicast connections. High-Speed Networking for Multimedia-Applications is a collection of high quality research papers which address these issues, providing interesting and innovative solutions. It is an essential reference for engineers and computer scientists working in this area. It is also a comprehensive text for graduate students of high-speed networking and multimedia applications.

Editorial Reviews

A selection of 16 papers from an international workshop in Schloz Dagstuhl, Germany, in June 1995, at which telecommunications engineers, computer communications specialists, and multimedia application designers shared information on architecture and protocols for high-speed networks, and on communication support for distributed multimedia applications. Most of them pivot on the two major issues of ATM networking, and quality-of-service for multimedia networks, but formal traffic models are also addressed more thoroughly than in the communications literature. The specific topics include end-to-end communication across hybrid networks, the performance of networks carrying multimedia traffic, a scalable architecture for multimedia storage, and priority encoding transmission. A technical reference that is also suitable as a text for a graduate course. No subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
