Abstract:

As computer communication evolves into the twenty-first century high bandwidth low delay communication is becoming the norm rather than the exception. This is leading to data networks being used by applications which previously had restricted themselves to specialized networks. These applications include digital television, digital audio, and facsimile transmission, and in general multimedia including continuous-media applications. The quality of service QOS Leiner 88 expected from the network by these applications varies over a wide range some are sensitive to delays experienced in the communication network, others are sensitive to loss rates, while yet others are sensitive to delay variations. An integrated network, which aims to support all these services, must attempt to meet the needs of all the applications.
