By Ralph Wittmann

The web is instantly changing into the spine for the global info society of the longer term. Point-to-point communique dominates the community this present day, although, staff communication--using multicast technology--will quickly achieve significance as electronic, audio, and video transmission, push expertise for the net, and distribution of software program updates to hundreds of thousands of finish clients turn into ubiquitous.Multicast verbal exchange: Protocols and purposes explains how and why multicast expertise is the most important to this transition. This booklet offers community engineers, designers, and directors with the underlying options in addition to an entire and designated description of the protocols and algorithms that include multicast. * provides info at the whole diversity of multicast protocols, together with, PIM-SM, MFTP, and PGM and explains their mechanisms, trade-offs, and stable ways to their implementation* offers an in-depth exam of caliber of provider techniques, together with: RSVP, ST2, IntServ, and DiffServ* Discusses crew deal with allocation and scoping* Discusses multicast implementation in ATM networks* Builds a superb figuring out of the Mbone and surveys the successes and present obstacles of actual multicast purposes on the web resembling videoconferencing, whiteboards, and distance studying

The Semantic Web: Semantics for Data and Services on the Web

The Semantic net is a imaginative and prescient – the belief of getting facts on the internet outlined and associated in the sort of method that it may be utilized by machines not only for demonstrate reasons yet for automation, integration and reuse of information throughout a variety of purposes. Technically, even if, there's a frequent false impression that the Semantic internet is essentially a rehash of latest AI and database paintings excited about encoding wisdom illustration formalisms in markup languages equivalent to RDF(S), DAML+OIL or OWL.

Example text

With dynamic groups, where the number of group members can vary during an ongoing communication, each change should be checked to ensure that the above condition (k < n) is still being met. In the case of k = 1, the service is somewhat comparable to an anycast service with the distinction that a 1-reliable service might deliver multiple responses to the user. Furthermore, anycast is unreliable, whereas a 1-reliable service delivers at least one response. A possible realization of a k-reliable group service is as follows: After sending data the sender waits for a certain time interval T for acknowledgments.

4 Multipeer communication. established for each sender to all the other members of the group. This technical implementation is frequently selected as an option today. Because different multicasts that are independent of one another are transmitted at the same time, situations can arise in which receivers will receive the data of different senders in a different sequence. One of the reasons for this can be the different network delay. For example, Wilma could conceivably receive data first from Dino and then from Barney, whereas Dino first received the data from Barney and then from Fred.

This is not necessarily assured in all situations. Information about the group members must be provided to the sender or to other nodes in the network that provide support for reliability. The aspect of awareness becomes even more complex if group membership is highly dynamic, because any changes must be recorded more or less immediately. In addition to group size, the aspect of group topology in the form of geographical distribution as well as the heterogeneity of the group members must be taken into account for scalability.
