Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Adaptware project which investigates adaptive software for server platforms is described. A complementary project addresses reliable transmission of quality of service (QoS)-sensitive data over packet-switched networks. Together, these two prongs compose an end-to-end approach to achieving flexible QoS guarantees for future Internet applications. Some video-on-demand servers as a potential application of this two-pronged approach are discussed.
