    This paper unveils the complexity of gender dynamics by reflecting on lessons learned in Zenzeleni Networks and provides a different perspective to notions of “participation” by asking “who participates and how?” The paper ...
  • Grafting an ATM network onto an existing ethernet network 

    Tucker, William David; Keats, Derek (Telkom, 1998)
    Grafting an ATM network onto an existing Ethernet network is a non-trivial exercise in network configuration. The process of mating ATM technology to an Ethernet network without tampering the underlying backbone and network ...
  • Guaranteed delivery of semi-synchronous IP-based communication 

    Julius, Elroy P.; Tucker, William David (Telkom, 2005)
    This paper presents an empirical solution for guaranteeing the delivery of synchronous and asynchronous messages within a semi-synchronous IPbased communication domain. The communication infrastructure that is needed between ...
  • Guaranteed delivery of semi-synchronous IP-based communication 

    Julius, Elroy P.; Tucker, William David (Telkom, 2004)
