Bandwidth Delay: Who cares? - We Do - Humans!

Cole, P. and Toohey, D.ORCID: 0000-0002-9900-5383 (1999) Bandwidth Delay: Who cares? - We Do - Humans! In: 2nd Western Australian Workshop on Information Systems Research (WAWISR) '99, 22nd November 1999, Murdoch University, Murdoch, W.A



The issues of bandwidth availability and propagation delay as applied to (inter)networking are not, in themselves, particularly exciting. The authors are of the opinion however, that these issues attract great importance when applied to multimedia internet communications, particularly in the context of the increasing withdrawal of regional and rural services. These services, that have previously been provided on a 'face-to-face' basis, may be replaced at some stage by computer mediated communication. This paper presents a proposed research project that aims to investigate what levels of bandwidth availability and propagation delay can provide adequate levels of multimedia internet communications.
