Performance Evaluation of High Speed Switching Fabrics and Networks ATM, Broadband ISDN, and MAN Technology A handy source for practicing engineers and researchers, this book offers collected examples of successful performance evaluations of high speed telecommunication switching fabrics such as ATM networks and high speed interconnection technology for computers. It emphasizes the performance evaluation of such switches as they apply to predicting a proposed system's performance through the use of statistical models - a cost-saving way for communications engineers to test the design of a system without having to construct it.
Key topics include:the design of ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) switching systems and MAN (Metropolitan Area Network) distributed switching systemsthe complete coverage of all major architectures proposed to datereal-world problems in the design of such next-generation packet switching systems as: nonuniform traffic, hot spots, packet trains, correlated traffic, and buffer sizingAlso of Interest Multiple Access Communications Foundations for Emerging Technologies edited by Norman Abramson, University of Hawaii The first book to explain the connection between spread spectrum and ALOHA channels in a coherent fashion, Multiple Access Communications provides a collection of key developments in the theory and practice of multiple user communication channels. Of particular interest to engineers working with packet radio networks, local networks, personal communication networks, and very small aperture terminal satellite networks, this book offers authoritative information on the theory of multiple access which is involved in techniques including: spread spectrum, Aloha, and spread Aloha. 1993 Hardcover 528 pp IEEE Order No. PC0287-3 ISBN 0-87942-292-0 Photonic Switching edited by H.
Scott Hinton, AT&T Bell Laboratories and John E. Midwinter, University College, London A needed source in a rapidly developing field, Photonic Switching offers you a balanced overview of achievements in this new high performance technology. It presents photonic switching from three different engineering disciplines - electronic switching researchers, optical device researchers, and optical computing or nonlinear optics researchers. 1990 Hardcover 464 pp IEEE Order No. PC0253-5 ISBN 0-87942-260-2 Coherent Lightwave Communications edited by Paul S. Henry, Communications Systems Research Laboratory, and Stewart D. Personick, Network Technology Research Laboratories at Bellcore Written by foremost experts on the topic, this impressive volume covers the technical principles, historical context, and the current status of coherent lightwave communications. Readers develop an understanding of the fundamental principles and current status of coherent lightwave technology while they recognize that "state of the art" is but a point in a continuum.
Descriptions of recent research results illustrate the degree of success achieved using different approaches to technical problems such as modulation techniques, optical frequency, and the nature and magnitude of the challenges that lay ahead. 1990 Hardcover 512 pp IEEE Order No. PC0250-1 ISBN 0-87942-262-9
