Performance evaluation of the integration of voice and data in a high-speed local area computer network : the Expressnet Lee, Jackson Ying-Kin


A high-speed local area communication network--the Expressnet--is investigated in this thesis with regard to voice and data transmissions. Performance criteria, such as channel utilizations, delay characteristics, and queue lengths are determined from computer simulation and numerical calculation approaches. The protocol is particularly suitable for the transmission of packetized voice as it is able to guarantee an upper bound on the transmission delay for each packet. The network under study thus will find major application in future office automation, where large amounts of voice will be integrated with data.
