networks interoperability, QoS, real-time applications


Background. Unified IP-based provisioning of communication services often faces the problem of QoS guarantees during the real-time application traffic transmission. The packet loss and random time delays in statistically multiplexed data flow apparently make a lot of trouble during remote audio/video conversation or machine-to-machine interaction in real time mode. Known IP-based approaches in telecom network engineering can’t meet the highly increasing operator demands and consumer requirements to QoS-aware services; this hinders the Internet and telephone networks convergence with respect to quality of service provision. Therefore, more research needed to effectively address these problems.
Objective. The aim of the paper is the interoperability scope extension in a converged telecom network to provide realtime data transfer with quality of service support.
Methods. The current state of “Internet+telephone network” along with the synthesis of an advanced interface for a heterogeneous network is analyzed.
Results. Basic principles introduced to extend the autonomous network interoperability. A novel mechanism of conveyor transporting modules originated for a converged network to benefit packet and circuit switching unification.
Conclusions. Traditional telecoms and Internet service providers permanently compete for IT market niches having their pros and cons, and vast IP-applications merged on the market. Therefore, no urgent successor-protocol reasonable in a short term. On this agenda, an alternative algorithm proposed for dynamic packet data allocation in a unified network-tonetwork link, which extends the interoperability scope in a converged network. The Gigabit Ethernet linkage outlined based on proposed algorithm.
Keywords: networks interoperability; QoS; real-time applications.
