• Ikhlaq Sidhu, Tal Lavian, Victoria Howell – University of California, Berkeley. Accepted paper for 2015 ASEE Annual Conference and Exposition. June 2015. Our purpose is to develop new models that define the advanced development & corporate research approaches of modern global high tech firms. While the world has moved on from Bell Labs’ famous advanced research […]

  • Determann L.; Berkeley Technology Law Journal. Volume 21, Issue 4, Fall 2006. (Lavian T. contributor to the technical section). Companies have been fighting about software interoperability and substitutability for decades. The battles have usually involved wholesale copying and significant modifications of code to achieve compatibility, and the law seems fairly settled in this respect. More recently, […]

  • Tal Lavian, Randy H. Katz; Doctoral Thesis, University of California at Berkeley. January 2006. The practice of science experienced a number of paradigm shifts in the 20th century, including the growth of large geographically dispersed teams and the use of simulations and computational science as a third branch, complementing theory and laboratory experiments. The recent exponential […]

  • Hoang D.B.; T. Lavian; The 4th Workshop on the Internet, Telecommunications and Signal Processing, WITSP 2005, December 19-21, 2005, Sunshine Coast, Australia. Circuit switching and packet switching have been developed to achieve statistical gain in sharing transmission bandwidth of a “passive” transport network whereby voice and data are transported end-to-end without content modifications by the network. […]

Network services are services that specialize in the handling of network-related or network-resident resources. Examples of network services are data transport service, network advance reservation service, network Quality of Service (QoS) […]

  • Allcock B.; Arnaud B.; Lavian T.; Papadopoulos P.B.; Hasan M.Z.; Kaplow W.; IEEE Hot Interconnects at Stanford University 2005, pp. 89-90. Grid computing is an attempt to make computing work like the power grid. When you run a job, you shouldn’t know or care where it runs, so long as it gets done within your constraints […]

  • Travostino F.; Keates R.; Lavian T.; Monga I.; Schofield B.; Nortel Technical Journal, February 2005, pp. 23-26. Intelligent networking and the ability for applications to more effectively use all of the network’s capability, rather than just the transport “pipe,” have been elusive. Until now. Nortel has developed a proof-of-concept software capability – service-mediation “middleware” called the […]
