This textbook offers an insightful study of the intelligent Internet-driven revolutionary and fundamental forces at work in society. Readers will have access to tools and techniques to mentor and monitor these forces rather than be driven by changes in Internet technology and flow of money. These submerged social and human forces form a powerful synergistic foursome web of (a) processor technology, (b) evolving wireless networks of the next generation, (c) the intelligent Internet, and (d) the motivation that drives individuals and corporations. In unison, the technological forces can tear human lives apart for the passive or provide a cohesive set of opportunities for the knowledgeable to lead and reap the rewards in the evolved knowledge society.

The book also provides in-depth coverage of the functions embedded in modern processors and intelligent communication networks. It focuses on the convergence of the design of modern processor technologies with the switching and routing methodologies of global intelligent networks. Most of the concepts that are generic to the design of terra-flop parallel processors and the terra-bit fiber-optic networks are presented. This book also highlights recent developments in computer and processor technologies into the microscopic and macroscopic medical functions in hospitals and medical centers.

  • Examination of the latest technologies and innovations presented from academic and industrial perspectives of the concurrent dynamic changes in computer and communication industries
  • An up-to-date and coherent perspective of the developments in the wireless and fiber optic network technologies based on the experience and developments in the older copper, cable and hybrid fiber-coaxial communication systems
  • Provides a set of novel concepts and methodologies for the innovators in industry















and Q.921 are accepted standards. It is interesting to note that all the ITU-T (formerly CCITT) recommendations are rigorously being followed in the general communication paths between the major IN components. For example, the various INs presently implemented in the United States and Europe use the X.25 packet communication through the SS7 network linking the SSPs, SCPs, and STPs. When ATM becomes the international standard for “cell relaying,” and when a fiber “backbone” signaling network is

processors revolution over the last two decades to comprehend the complex processing of complex medical procedures, subprocedures, and microprocedures on medical super objects, objects, subordinate objects, and microobjects. Such procedures bring about major changes in the objects, such as removing a malignant tissue, curing a patient, and performing surgeries, to very minor changes such as authorizing a prescription and recording the temperature or blood pressure. Chapter 3 deals with the

cells. The effects of multiple reflection due to single- and multipleantenna systems can be formulated under the best and worst conditions. Short-term fading models exist. Rayleigh, multipath, and selective fading simulators are also available. Thus, fading, based upon envelope and phase, can be determined. Doppler effects and standing wave patterns can also be evaluated accurately for a given set of conditions. In a sense, these effects must be considered in proper proportions and scales for

wireless media. The routing and channeling are processed by intelligent mobile networks and the base stations. As far back as late 1940s, researchers at Bell Laboratories (an R&D unit of AT&T before the divestiture of the Bell System) had envisioned the possible deployment of radio communications. Tesla and Marconi already demonstrated the viability of wireless radio equipment during the late 1890s. Mobile networks can encompass the (very) wide variety of systems ranging from every type of

realistic goals are to reduce the waiting time, increase the accuracy, connect to the appropriate knowledge bases, reduce user frustrations, and provide most appropriate information most of the time. From a statistical perspective, these service requirements demand adaptive if not (very) INs, components, agents, and software. Thus, an appropriate design becomes essential and customized to the service goals. For medical applications, total accuracy and patient privacy add additional software
