A roadmap of fuzzy logic in ATM, mobile and active networks: challenges of the new century
ATM networking technology was conceived 20 years ago, and installations will reach their peak the next 10 years. Active networks
will be the technology which will follow the ATM. In this article, we address the most important issues regarding recent advances
and future perspectives in ATM, including IP/ATM integration, Active Networks, MobileActive Networks and the impact of fuzzy
technology in solving the important problems of the above future networking technologies. In the new century it is imperative
that we shift from a technology to an application (needs of consumers) focus, where ubiquitous and invisible (context-aware)
computing will be a reality.
