By Anthony S. Acampora

This is an undemanding textbook on a sophisticated subject: broadband telecommunica­ tion networks. i need to claim on the outset that this ebook isn't really basically meant for an viewers of telecommunication experts who're weIl versed within the strategies, method architectures, and underlying applied sciences of high-speed, multi­ media, bandwidth-on-demand, packet-switching networks, even supposing the techni­ caIly refined telecommunication practitioner might need to take advantage of it as a refer­ ence. neither is this booklet meant to be a sophisticated textbook with reference to broadband networks. quite, this booklet is basically meant for these wanting to leam extra approximately this intriguing fron tier within the box of telecommunications, an viewers that comes with platforms designers, and software program engineers, en­ gineering scholars, R&D managers, and marketplace planners who search an comprehend­ ing of local-, metropolitan-, and wide-area broadband networks for integrating voice, facts, photo, and video. Its basic viewers additionally contains researchers and engineers from different disciplines or different branches of telecommunications who count on a destiny involvement in, or who may easily prefer to leam extra approximately, the sphere of broadband networks, in addition to medical researchers and company telecommunication and information conversation managers whose more and more sophis­ ticated functions would receive advantages from (and force the necessity for) broadband web­ works. complex subject matters are not at all overlooked (in truth, a believable argument can be fastened that aIl of the cloth is complicated, given the infancy of the topic).

Sample text

A new transmission format uses a frame length of 1 msec which is subdivided into 100 time slots. Each time slot contains 100 bits. (a) What is the data rate of the transmission line? (b) If each time slot corresponds to one fixed-rate channel, what is the data rate of each such channel? (c) How many time slots must be assigned to a connection requiring a data rate of 2 Mbits/sec? A set of black-and-white photographs is to be stored and delivered electronically. Each raster scan contains 100 horizontalIines, and each line is sampled 1000 times.

7. ABrief Word about Communication Protocols, Bridges, Routers, Gateways, Datagrams, and Virtual Circuits Communications protocols are the sets of mIes which users have agreed to follow when establishing services and transferring information. In addition to permitting the establishment and management of connections and keeping track of the multitude of connections which may be multiplexed through a common Introduction 27 physical network port, protocols are also needed to enable reliable communications in a relatively hostile telecommunication environment characterized by noisy transmission and network congestion.

In addition to handling an unprecedented volume of end-user traffic, the broadband network must, once again, allow programs resident in geographically dispersed data bases to be rapidly accessed and locally cached since, undoubtedly, multiple viewers will want to view the same program but with overlapping start times. The degree of difficulty encountered is strongly dependent on the start-time granularity. 7. Natural, lifelike video conferencing. Video conferencing has been heralded as a much-needed productivity enhancer because, in principle, it tends to avoid the need for time-consuming business travel.
