    The networks that are generically referred to as ?cable? today began their lives with a particular purpose: the distribution of television signals within a community. Given this history, cable networks have always operated ...
  • Bailey, Joseph P. (1995)
    As the cable television networks transition from a broadcast-only network, to a high-bandwidth two-way network, the importance and functionality of the set-top box increases. However, developments in the set-top box ...
  • Kavassalis, Petros; Lee, Tom; Bailey, Joseph P. (2000)
    Based upon the Internet perspective, this paper will attempt to clarify and revise several ideas about the separation between infrastructure facilities and service offerings in digital communications networks. The key ...
  • Lehr, William; McKnight, Lee; Ferreira, Petro (2002-07-22)
    The evolution of broadband services will depend on the widespread deployment of optical networks. The deployment of such networks will, in turn, help drive increased demand for additional capacity. In this world, service ...
  • McGarty, Terrence P. (2002-07-22)
    This paper presents a review of the alternatives for Internet access in Central Europe and the evolution of the market, the regulation, and the technology. The change in peering, the reduction in transport costs, the ...
  • Weiss, Martin (2002-07-22)
    It is widely recognized that broadcast spectrum is utilized inefficiently. The principle technical cause of this inefficiency is inexpensive receiver design. In addition, the economics of the industry are such that users ...
  • Gillett, Sharon (1995-06)
    This paper analyzes inter-firm alliances for providing the home computer user with an innovative new telecommunications service: a high-speed connection to the Internet. After providing an overview of the Internet ...
  • Donahue, Hugh Carter; O'Donnell, Sean; Ferrigno-Stack, Josephine (2001-10-28)
    We propose a quality of service (QoS) monitoring program for broadband access to measure the impact of proprietary network spaces. Our paper surveys other QoS policy initiatives, including those in the airline, and ...
  • Compaine, Benjamin (2000-09)
    Much media and public policy attention has been attended to a presumed ?Digital Divide.? This refers to those who have access to information tools and the capability of using information and those who presumably do not. ...
  • Mindel, Joshua L.; Sirbu, Marvin (2000-09)
    Current U.S. regulatory policy is incoherent in its treatment of packet-oriented data communications services. Services based on X.25, Frame Relay or ATM protocols are regulated as telecommunications services, while IP ...
  • Clark, David; Blumenthal, Marjory (2000-09)
    This paper looks at the Internet and the changing set of requirements for the Internet that are 8oriented towards the consumer, and used for a wider set of purposes. We discuss a set of principles that have guided the ...
  • McKnight, Lee; Uzuner, Ozlem (2002-07-22)

  • McKnight, Lee; Lehr, William (2002-07-22)
    Delivering real-time services (Internet telephony, video conferencing, and streaming media as well as business-critical data applications) across the Internet requires end-to-end quality of service (QoS) guarantees, which ...
  • Shenker, Scott; Clark, David D.; Zhang, Lixia (1992-08)
    This paper considers the support of real-time applications in an Integrated Services Packet Network (ISPN). We first review the characteristics of real-time applications. We observe that, contrary to the popular view that ...
  • Kavassalis, Petros; Lee, Thomas Y.; Bailey, Joseph P. (1997-11)
    Based upon the Internet perspective, this chapter will attempt to clarify and revise several ideas about the separation between infrastructure facilities and service offerings in digital communications networks. The key ...
  • O'Donnell, Shawn; Neuman, W. Russell; Lanning, Steven (2000)
    Demand forecasts are an essential tool for planning capacity and formulating policy. Traffic estimates are becoming increasingly unreliable, however, as accelerating rates of use and new communications applications ...
  • Gillett, Sharon Eisner; Lehr, William; Wroclawski, John; Clark, David (2000-09)
    The world is evolving from one in which almost all access to the Internet comes from personal computers (PCs) to one in which so-called Internet appliances (IAs) will make up a greater share of end-user equipment. Today's ...
