In this paper, we characterize wide-area network applications that use the TCP transport protocol. We also describe a new way to model the wide-area traffic generated by a stub network. We believe the traffic model presented here will be useful in studying congestion control, routing algorithms, and other resource management schemes for existing and future(More)
This paper presents a comparative analysis of two resource reservation protocols, ST-II 6] and RSVP 7], in support of an Integrated Services Packet Network (ISPN). We use simulations to examine the network-wide resource requirements for each protocol to support a number of application communication styles, across a range of group sizes and membership(More)
The Integrated Services Packet Network (ISPN) architecture proposed within the Internet community 2] incorporates a resource reservation mechanism for those applications requiring Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees. Resource reservation introduces a new form of resource contention that can lead to reduced network throughput and thrashing. We establish(More)
The goal of network design is to meet the needs of resident applications in an efficient manner. Adding real-time service and point-to-multipoint multicast routing to the Internet's traditional point-to-point best effort service model will greatly increase the Internet's efficiency in handling point-to-multipoint real-time applications. Recently, the RSVP(More)
