Dynamically Adaptable Multiservice Switch

Objective

The objective of the project was to identify and exploit the relative advantages of a switch-oriented communications architecture with respect to a wide variety of traffic and services required in the office. Dynamic allocation of bandwidth (according to the varying needs of users) was investigated in order to manage the available bandwidth in the most efficient way.
The objective of the project was to identify and exploit the relative advantages of a switch oriented communications architecture with respect to a wide variety of traffic and services required in the office. Dynamic allocation of bandwidth (according to the varying needs of users) was investigated in order to manage the available bandwidth in the most efficient way. Reports on the external requirements of an advanced private automatic branch exchange (PABX) and the services to be supported were produced, leading to the specification of an outline architecture based on an optical ring backbone. A technology study was completed showing the current availability of the component parts of the system. A marketing report highlighted the need and timeliness of the project whilst warning of the stiff competition from Japanese and US suppliers.

A technology study was completed showing the current availability of the component parts of the system. A marketing report by the subcontractor, Langtons (UK), highlighted the need and timeliness of the project whilst warning of the stiff competition fromJapanese and US suppliers.
Exploitation
Industrially exploitable results are expected by 1993. These will be based on R&D to be carried out following the study phase. This work is being followed up in project 2146, DAMS-2.
