The emergence of the Internet has revolutionized the computer, and communications world like nothing before, and has permanently changed the lifestyle of human beings. The Internet is committed to providing at once a world-wide broadcasting capability, a mechanism for information dissemination and a medium for collaboration and interaction between individuals, irrespective of the geographical distance separating them. As a result Internet traffic has skyrocketed, and is consuming increasing network bandwidth. At the same time, new time-critical multimedia applications such as Internet telephony, video conferencing, video-on-demand, and interactive gaming are consuming large amounts of bandwidth. All these facts are imposing tremendous strain on the underlying telecommunication networks, forcing us to search for alternative means to satisfy the demand.
