IEEE GLOBECOM is one of two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society, together with IEEE ICC. Each year the conference attracts about 3000 submitted scientific papers. A technical program committee of more than 1,500 experts provides more than 10,000 reviews, and from this a small fraction of the submitted papers are accepted for publication and presentation at the conference. The conference meets once a year in North America and attracts roughly 2000 leading scientists and researchers and industry leaders from all around the world. IEEE GLOBECOM is therefore one of the most significant scientific events of the networking and communications community, a must-attend event for scientists and researchers from industry and academia.
VTC will bring together individuals from academia, industry and government to discuss and exchange ideas in the fields of mobile, wireless and vehicular technology as well as the applications and services associated with such technology. Features include world-class plenary speakers, panel sessions, tutorials, and both technical and application-based sessions.
2009 6th International Conference on Broadband Communications, Networks and Systems (Broadnets 2009)
BROADNETS 2009 is an international conference focusing on broadband communications, networks, and systems and covers the entire gamut of next generation networks, communications systems, applications and services.
The aim is to provide a forum that brings together scientists and researchers from academia as well as managers and engineers from the industry and government organizations to exchange ideas and recent work on all aspects of access networks and how they integrate with their in-home counterparts. The technical sessions will present original and fundamental research advances while the workshops and panels will focus on development, application, and related business issues.

The authors consider integrated data/voice circuit-switched networks which assume a star topology consisting of local area networks (LANs) interconnected through a backbone metropolitan area network (MAN). The stations are classified into two categories: data and voice stations. They are characterized by different arrival rate and session-length (holding time) statistics. A data (voice) session connection between a LAN-i station and a ...

The authors examine a distributed queue metropolitan area network that serves video, voice, and wideband and narrowband data traffic. The protocol that is required for such combined services in the QPSX (queue packet and synchronous circuit exchange) network is proposed, and the performance of this protocol is computed. An integration scheme of the movable frame type is proposed to guarantee ...

The twofold purpose of this research is to develop mathematical programming tools for the optimal or near-optimal design of a new type of network architecture called the wavelength-division optical network (WON) and to discover underlying design principles for such networks via experimentation using these tools. The WON, a multichannel, multihop lightwave network with tunable transceivers, is suitable for use as ...

An investigation is presented of the performance, for multiservice traffic, of a high-capacity, fast packet switch based on a nonbuffered, multistage interconnection network, implemented from identical LSI switching elements. It is shown that for an implementation operating at 30 Mb/s, switches with a total traffic capacity of up to 50 Gb/s can be constructed. If the voice class traffic load ...

We investigate a new approach to uplink communications in wideband outdoor cellular systems that can take advantage of multiple antennas at the base station in a scalable manner, while eliminating or minimizing overhead for channel estimation.

A new, high-performance packet-switching architecture, called the Knockout Switch, is proposed. The Knockout Switch uses a fully interconnected switch fabric topology (i.e., each input has a direct path to every output) so that no switch blocking occurs where packets destined for one output interfere with (i.e., block or delay) packets going to different outputs. It is only at each output of the switch that one encounters the unavoidable congestion caused by multiple packets simultaneously arriving on different inputs all destined for the same output. Taking advantage of the inevitability of lost packets in a packet-switching network, the Knockout Switch uses a novel concentrator design at each output to reduce the number of separate buffers needed to receive simultaneously arriving packets. Following the concentrator, a shared buffer architecture provides complete sharing of all buffer memory at each output and ensures that all packets are placed on the output line on a first-in first-out basis. The Knockout Switch architecture has low latency, and is self-routing and nonblocking. Moreover, its simple interconnection topology allows for easy modular growth along with minimal disruption and easy repair for any fault. Possible applications include interconnects for multiprocessing systems, high- speed local and metropolitan area networks, and local or toll switches for integrated traffic loads.

Multimedia applications integrate a variety of media, namely, audio, video, images, graphics, text, and data, each of which has different characteristics and quality-of-service (QoS) requirements. In this chapter, we study several existing (commercially available) and newly proposed LAN (local area networks), MAN (metropolitan area networks), and WAN (wide area networks), mainly ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) protocols, and evaluate their performance for multimedia communications. Specifically, for LAN protocols, we study 100Base-T Ethernets, Ethernet++(the Priority Mode CSMA/CD Protocol), and 100VG-AnyLAN (the Demand Priority MAC Protocol), and compare their collision rates, delay, and throughput in supporting messages of different priorities. For MAN protocols, we first present the FDDI (Fiber Distributed Data Interface). Next, we study four reservation-based MAN protocols, including the IEEE 802.6 DQDB (Distributed Queue Dual Bus), the CRMA (Cyclic-Reservation Multiple-Access), the DQMA (Distributed-Queue multiple-Access), and the FDQ (Fair Distributed Queue) protocols, and compare their performance under various delay and loss constraints. For the ATM protocol, we first present several ABR (Available Bit-Rate) congestion control mechanisms and compare their performance in supporting messages of different burstiness. A new design, the MFRP (Modified Fast Resolution Protocol), is then proposed for ATM burst-level admission control. Its performance is evaluated against existing methods including the FRP (Fast Resolution Protocol), and the AFRP (Adaptive Fast Resolution Protocol). We believe that the simulation experiments and results presented in this chapter will provide important metrics of evaluating high-speed protocols for supporting multimedia traffic. They will also give insight for researchers to explore the essence of different high-speed protoco ls as multimedia carriers.
