Current approaches to supporting real-time communication allocate network resources either to individual connections, or to aggregates of connections. Resource sharing is a new approach that exploits known relationships between related connections to allow network resources to be shared between them without sacriic-ing well-deened guarantees. We present a(More)
This paper focuses on the investigation of integrated CMOS and Silicon/Germanium (SiGe) devices for high-speed optical receiver circuits. In this paper, we present several competitive designs of front-end transimpedance amplifiers (TIA) for optical receiver applications using the IBM 5HP (0.5micron) SiGe technology. This technology exhibits f T and f MAX of(More)
Resveratrol (RSV), a polyphenolic phytoestrogen, has been shown to activate the serine/threonine kinase 5'-adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and to stimulate insulin signaling and glucose uptake in skeletal muscle cells. A direct effect of RSV on neuronal insulin signaling, however, has not been demonstrated. Here, we report that RSV(More)
The ability to reserve real-time connections in advance is essential in all distributed multi-party applications (i.e., applications involving multiple human beings) using a network that controls admissions to provide good quality of service. This paper discusses the requirements of the clients of an advance reservation service, and a distributed design for(More)
There is considerable interest in the network community in supporting real-time multi-party applications, such as video conferenc-ing. The Tenet Group at UC Berkeley and ICSI has designed and implemented protocols that provide quality of service (QoS) guarantees for real-time traac on packet switching networks. Suite 2 of the Tenet protocols provides(More)
We investigate the network resource partitioning problem for real-time communication. Resource partitioning is useful for a number of applications, including virtual private subnetworks, advance reservation of real-time network services, fast establishment of real-time connections and support for mobile computing with real-time communication. We propose a(More)
