Paper Abstract

This paper investigates the service demands of telemedical communications on a metropolitan area network (MAN) connecting several local area networks located at different hospitals. The flexible grade of service (GOS) is proposed for better network utilization and lower blocking rate as opposed to conventional fixed GOS. The GOS is supported by network resource allocation schemes. A new scheme to support the flexible GOS is also outlined in this paper. The new scheme can be used for both planning and management of a telemedical communication network. 1
