Networking

Nemesis is a distributed operating system which has been designed on the assumption that much of the network traffic will be continuous high bandwidth media information delivered with planned quality of service; this led to the choice of as the underlying networking technology.

This approach will be continued, and the Pegasus II will be able to use some commercially available equipment, while continuing to investigate coding schemes and protocols which are well matched to the data processing that applications wish to perform.

The project will also implement the `new generation' internetworking protocols, including those aimed at Quality of Service over an internet. This internetworking support will extend the useful network platforms for Pegasus, while an approach based on the minimal multiplexing of internet flows over can be used to preserve the characteristics of to systems directly attached.
