This Technical Report includes student papers produced within a
seminar of "Network Management and High Performance
Communications". For the 24nd time this seminar has attracted a
large number of diligent students, proving the broad interest in
topics of network management and high performance ommunications.
The topics of this report may be coarsely divided into two
One block is devoted to high speed and high performance
technology. At first, the concept of modern High Speed Switches
and Routers with quality-of-service support is described.
Subsequently, Efficient Methods and Algorithms for Routing Table
Lookups as well as Classification of IP Packets and
multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) are presented.
A second block deals with various topics such as wireless
communications, network management and security. The first
article shows advantages of the Policy-based Networks to
manage todays networks. Furthermore, Security Extensions of DNS
for secure use of the domain name service are examined and
presented. The next article describes how to use mobility
profiles in mobile ad-hoc networks. Methods for watermarking of
multimedia data are discussed in a subsequent article.
Moreover, Technical Challenges and Solutions for IP-telephony
are also presented, whereby the Stream Control Transmission
Protocol is described separately as an approach to achieve a
better transport of signaling messages over the Internet. ... mehrThe
last article deals with group communication and shows New
Approaches for Multicast Routing as well as an overview of some
Multicast transport protocols.
