This paper is concerned with the application of
hierarchial and parallel computing structures to digital
data communications processing in a multi-access telecommunications
environment. Designs are analyzed and
evaluated in terms of data collected from remote access
tele-communications traffic and in terms of the application
to several processing problems in the...
An advanced forward 'area tactical radar network, now under
conceptual development by the Air Force Electronic Systems Division,
can be viewed as a novel form of computer network but with
other unique problems resulting from the specialized nature of the
application. The proposed network will link together a number of...
Local computer networks are being installed in
diverse application areas. Many of the networks employ
a distributed control scheme, which has advantages
in performance and reliability over a centralized
one. However, distribution of control increases
the difficulty in locating faulty hardware elements.
Consequently, advantages may not be fully realized
An important objective of tactical ad hoc networks is to deliver threat information
from sensors to shooters efficiently and quickly. The information sent
to a particular shooter should contain warnings about threats that are within
some distance and/or within some time of the shooter's current location. In this
Interconnection networks play important roles in designing high performance computers. Recently two new classes of interconnection networks based on the concept of Gaussian and Eisenstein-Jacobi integers were introduced. In this research, efficient routing and broadcasting algorithms for these networks are developed. Furthermore, constructing edge disjoint Hamiltonian cycles in Gaussian networks...
Network coding is a transmission paradigm that is known to achieve better network throughput in certain multicast topologies; however, the practicality of network coding has been questioned due to its high computational complexity. One of the drawbacks of using network coding is the long decoding times, this is mainly due...
Two new medium access protocols for ring type local area networks,
CTR (Concurrent Token Ring) protocol and DRUID (Destination Removal
withoUt Intermediate node Delay) ring protocol, are proposed, designed and
analyzed. A destination partial removal technique is designed and used in
these two protocols to support concurrent message transmission and...
Rapid advances in technology have seen computing move from a
large central computer to desktop microcomputers.
This advance was also
seen in the design of dedicated computers, computers designed to perform a
few specialized tasks or duties.
These computers, or microcontrollers, are
often controlled by a central computer and themselves...
This paper describes the design and implementation of
COLAN V, a High Performance Local Area Network for
Communications and Control utilizing a Communications Coprocessor.
The main objective of this thesis is to improve upon
the performance of previous COLANs in speed, switching
techniques and error detection techniques. This was
