Considerable research in networking technology has been done over the last decade. A variety of networking infrastructures have been developed and advance high speed networks are on the verge of deployment. These include ATM networks, large scale internets and mobile communication systems. However, extensive capabilities need to be implemented in these systems in order to support advanced multimedia services. In this tutorial we discuss the potential use of these systems and discuss technological challenges in supporting multimedia services. Specifically, we discuss technical chal- lenges in network management and resource allocation. We also describe how existing and emerging networking infrastructures can be effectively used to support multimedia services.
