Protocols for Loosely Synchronous Networks

Danilo Florissi & Yechiam Yemini
This paper overviews a novel transfer mode for B-ISDN: Loosely-synchronous Transfer Mode (LTM). LTM operates by signaling periphery nodes when destinations become available. No frame structure is imposed by LTM, thus avoiding adaptation layers. Additionally, LTM can deliver a spectrum of guaranteed quality of services. New Synchronous Protocol Stacks (SPSs) build on LTM by synchronizing their activities to LTM signals. Such signals can be delivered directly to applications that may synchronize its operations to transmissions,...
