Hybrid optical network architectures: bringing packets and circuits together
The three classes of hybrid optical network architectures are classified based on the degree of interaction and integration of the network technologies and their main representatives regarding key characteristics, performance benefits, and realization complexity.
The Feature and Service Interaction Problem in Telecommunications Systems. A Survey
This work presents a framework of four different criteria in order to classify the approaches dealing with the service interaction problem, and draws some conclusions on the applicability of this framework and on possible directions of further research in this field.
Performance modeling of Signaling System No.7
The layered performance modeling approach is refined and extended to cover the latest CCITT Blue Book specifications, and generic models for signaling points and signaling transfer points are constructed.
Common channel signaling networks: past, present, future
The authors wish to provide a unification of this issue's papers by providing a clear context for them. Common channel signaling can be defined as the system that enables stored program control
Location-Based Services in Mobile Communication Infrastructures
An approach is outlined as a basis for future capacity planning and for the support of strategic decision making with respect to infrastructure investments.

Results for normal load and overload reveal high throughput and low transfer times which are basic for a wide range of applications in LAN's.
Capacity and performance analysis of signaling networks in multivendor environments
A signaling network planning tool concept has been developed which provides the distinct loading of hardware and software signaling network resources, and on which hierarchical performance analysis and planning procedures are based.

In this paper, an overview is given about traffic models for ATM traffic sources, generic ATM traffic control models and performance evaluation methods.
Comparison of Communication Services with Connection-Oriented and Connectionless Data Transmission
A hierarchical decomposition and aggregation technique is described which is oriented at the ISO Basic Reference Model and connection-oriented and connectionless data transmission are compared to each other quantitatively.
