Cyclone Technology: An Overview
MetadataShow full item record
The current network, which is based on managing resources on demand and accepting uncontrolled communication request, often leads to problems such as congestion and other queueing bottlenecks. The extent of congestion and queues depends on the variability in customer arrival times, services needed, and the resource allocation mechanism used by system components. The queue sizes, which results in congestion, can be reduced only by controlling the variability in customer arrival times, and this is best done by making explicit use of time. Cyclone technology uses the information based on times of events explicitly, including the design of systems. Cyclone provides the coordination of resources through dynamic, time-based resource management leading to a network that is capable of providing end-to-end low latency communications free of losses, jitter, (Also cross-referenced as UMIACS-TR-98-10)
