ITTC Project

Development of a Large-scale ATM Network Simulation Environment

Project Award Date: 0000-00-00


Techniques to predict the performance of large Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) systems for design, testing, and concept validation are currently lacking. Analytic techniques do not have the required flexibility, and current simulation techniques are too computationally intensive. Parallel and distributed processing techniques, however, do hold out the potential for overcoming the computational deficiencies of today's network simulation techniques. The University of Kansas Telecommunications and Information Sciences Laboratory has been active in the area of communications network simulation for the past ten years. TISL researchers have developed computationally efficient simulation techniques and have been involved in the development of ATM network models. In addition, the group has conducted research on traffic models and developed tools to collect traffic and performance information from large ATM networks. These tools are currently being applied to the MAGIC network. We are assisting the team (NRL, Sandia, and SAIC) Sprint has formed to develop a Large-scale ATM Network Simulation Environment (LANSE).


Project Sponsors

Primary Sponsor(s): Sprint Corp.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
