An Introduction to Broadband Networks: LANs, MANs, ATM, by Anthony S. Acampora

By Anthony S. Acampora

This is an straight forward textbook on a sophisticated subject: broadband telecommunica­ tion networks. i need to claim on the outset that this e-book isn't basically meant for an viewers of telecommunication experts who're weIl versed within the innovations, process 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 complicated textbook near to broadband networks. particularly, this e-book is essentially meant for these wanting to leam extra approximately this fascinating fron tier within the box of telecommunications, an viewers that incorporates structures 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, info, snapshot, and video. Its fundamental viewers additionally contains researchers and engineers from different disciplines or different branches of telecommunications who count on a destiny involvement in, or who could easily wish to leam extra approximately, the sector of broadband networks, besides clinical researchers and company telecommunication and information communique managers whose more and more sophis­ ticated functions would receive advantages from (and force the necessity for) broadband web­ works. complex subject matters are under no circumstances overlooked (in truth, a believable argument should be fastened that aIl of the fabric is complex, given the infancy of the topic).

Introduction to Communication Science and Systems

There are lots of priceless and beneficial books on electric conversation (References 1-5 are a few examples), yet they've got definite negative aspects for the newbie. The extra complicated books current a few issues in a uncomplicated manner, yet they're very slender for an creation to communica­ tion. The introductory books are broader yet nonetheless slender through our stan­ dards.

Second, telephone traffic is persistent, that is, the typical conversation does not involve long idle periods punctuated by an occasional outburst of speech. Rather, one or more parties to a telephone conversation are usually speaking. ). Today's telecommunication infrastructure has evolved to reflect these unique properties of voice trafiic: synchronous time multiplexing provides a persistent standard data rate connection between two end points. Where possible, data trafiic (which has distinctly different characteristics from voice) is made to look like voice by means of a conditioning data modem.

Here, a connection is identified either by a specifically numbered time slot reserved in each frame or by a connection identification number contained in the packet header. 22 Chapter 1 successive frames. However, since each time slot can support a 53-byte segment, rather than a single individual byte, an alternative strategy becomes possible. Suppose that each 53-byte cell is divided into two fields, a data field containing user-supplied information and a header field containing network-supplied control information.

Contention in Telecommunication Networks Stripped to its barest essentials, a telecommunication network can be viewed as a multiport system responsible for (1) transmission of information over remote distances, (2) routing of information applied at the various input ports to the 34 Chapter 1 correct output ports, and (3) resolution of any contention that may arise when two or more information processes simultaneously seek to use some common facility. Application of information to a telecommunication network may be viewed as a sequence of random, uncoordinated events.
