SPIE International Symposium Voice, Video, & Data Communications

Summary: SPIE International Symposium
Voice, Video, & Data Communications
Conference on Performance & Control of Network System
37 November 1997, Dallas, Texas, USA
Special Session on
Switching and Traffic Management in High Speed Networks
Telecommunications in today's competitive marketplace typically involve multiple carriers, multiple services,
varied equipment from multiple vendors, and multiple interconnected networks and network systems. The
increasing demand in bandwidth for computing and communications has given rise to high speed networks.
These networks require special types of switching and traffic management mechanisms. This special session
is intended to cover different aspects of high speed switching, congestion control and service interworking
mechanisms. Topics include (but are not limited to):
ffl Switching architectures
ffl Buffer management
ffl Congestion control mechanisms
ffl Traffic characterization, control, measurement, models and tools
ffl Prototyping experience and trial results
ffl Scheduling algorithms
ffl Service interworking (Frame Relay and ATM, TCP/IP and ATM, etc.)
ffl Performance evaluation, scalability, reliability and availability
