|摘要:||近年來寬頻多媒體的應用服務受到廣泛大眾的歡迎，許多先進的寬頻接取技術，包括有線及無線的技術，都被熱烈的討論與研究。由於現今有線電視網路 (CATV networks)之佈建幾乎無所不在。與其另外建置全新的網路，有線電視網路可視為既快速又經濟的一種解決方案，並可利用此優勢整合多種異質性網路，以提供寬頻接取服務到每一個客戶或家庭。由於混合同軸光纖網路 (HFC networks)之架構特性，如樹狀(tree-and-branch)結構、上下行高度的不對稱等因素都深深影響其運作。因此如何支援此網路中即時性多媒體之應用，尤其在高負荷的情況下，將是亟需克服與探討的主題。
在本論文中，我們主要針對目前使用之主流有線電視網路標準–DOCSIS混合同軸光纖網路，企圖改善其上行頻寬之配置、碰撞解決機制、及網路之可用性(availability)等主題，以滿足即時性多媒體等應用之需求。我們提出了“可預測的時槽配置及動態的碰撞解決演算法(Predictive Slot Allocation with Dynamic Contention Resolution Algorithm)”，嘗試預估適當的競爭時槽需求數量，裨便於改善其碰撞解決機制，進而達到更佳之系統效能。本演算法由二個部份組成：一是“可調適的競爭時槽及統計機能演算法”，以改善上行之傳送頻寬；另外則是“可預測的P值及動態的後退演算法”，用以改善存取之時間延遲。
為了改善DOCSIS採用“截去式二進位指數後退演算法”無法確定存取時間延遲之缺點，我們提出了一新的機制，稱為“可調適的快速擴展、負荷統計並具動態交換機制演算法(Adaptive Fast Expansion, Loading Statistics with Dynamic Swapping Algorithm)”，以充份支援即時性之互動式服務。此演算法亦可分為二個部份：“可調適的快速擴展兼具協同運作之集中控制演算法”，以及“負荷統計並具動態交換機制演算法”，以進一步改善存取時間延遲及系統效能。另外針對另一重要主題，即網路媒體擷取層(MAC layer)於大範圍服務中斷後之回復能力，我們也提出了“具優先等級的距離改善機制(Priority Ranging Scheme)”之方法，以充份支援DOCSIS混合同軸光纖網路上即時性之服務。經由各章節的程式模擬結果，我們提出的演算法皆比MCNS DOCSIS標準，表現出更佳之結果。|
As broadband multimedia services becoming popular in the past few years, several emerging wired and wireless advanced access technologies have been studied to provide broadband access to subscribers. The Community Antenna Television (CATV) networks have become ubiquitous. Instead of constructing an entirely new broadband network infrastructure, the CATV network has emerged as one of the rapid and economic technologies to converge heterogeneous networks to provide broadband access to subscribers. The HFC network possesses a tree-and-branch architecture and highly asymmetric bandwidth, the upstream bandwidth is rarely and deeply influences the CATV network operation. How to support real-time multimedia applications, especially in an environment with heavy traffic, is a critical issue in modern CATV networks. In this thesis, we propose to improve the upstream bandwidth allocation, contention resolution algorithm, and availability of DOCSIS HFC networks to fulfill the needs of real-time multimedia services. We first propose a Predictive Slot Allocation with Dynamic Contention Resolution Algorithm to predict the number of contention slots in order to better cope with the request contention problem and achieve better overall system performance. It is composed of two mechanisms: Adaptive Contention Slots with Statistics Control Algorithm to improve upstream throughput and Predictive P-Persistent with Dynamic Back-off Algorithm to decrease access delay. To avoid the inherently unpredictable access delay of truncated binary exponential back-off algorithm adopted in DOCSIS, we propose a novel scheme named Adaptive Fast Expansion, Loading Statistics with Dynamic Swapping Algorithm to support real-time interactive services over HFC networks. It consists of two sub-algorithms: Adaptive Fast Expansion with Coordinate Centralized Control Algorithm, and Loading Statistics with Dynamic Swapping Algorithm. In addition to access delay and performance, as HFC networks is to become an infrastructure of broadband service networks, another important issue is the ability of the MAC layer to recover from service breakdown. Finally, we propose a Priority Ranging Scheme, to minimize service disruption time due to a large area malfunction, to enhance availability of DOCSIS HFC networks. Through simulation results, the proposed algorithms have been shown to perform better than that of the MCNS DOCSIS.
