a. Given set of streams that are expected in a MUX -- derive
a good structure of hierarchical MUX (priority bins).
Questions: a) Should it be hierarchical.
b) How to form the hierarchy.
c) What performance will it have?
b. Study the advantages/disadvantages of feeding one phase of
hierarchical MUX into the other.
Implement prioritizing mechanizm (fair queueing) for Internet
Virtual path planning:
a. Suggest an algorithm for virtual path design whose
major objective is efficient failure recovery
(tradeoff - between the amount of work to move the VP,
to the likelihood of finding an empty space).
b. Consider all factors for VP design and propose the parameters
on which a VP algorithm should work (input is routing of sessions,
output is VP design).
Quality of Service:
a. Study the issue of Quality of Service in IP networks.
b. How QOS in IP networks can/should be mapped into ATM standards?
c. Differentiated Services in IP: How this new approach will be used
to provide QOS in IP networks?
