Abstract:

This research summary covers the following areas of activity 1 Network management and control, and 2 Asynchronous network performance evaluation and design. The network management and control research covered two topics Access control in broadband integrated networks, with particular focus on video traffic streams and fault management. The work on asynchronous network performance evaluation focused on integrated networks for example, Asynchronous transfer mode carrying bursty, heterogenous traffic from large numbers of sources. Three aspects of the problem were considered a Performance analysis and control using Markov-modulated rate process MMRP models b Analysis and design of fast packet switches and c Performance of full motion coded video sources in asynchronous networks.
