9780130322210: High Speed Networks and Internets: Performance and Quality of Service

For courses in network protocols, high speed networks or advanced networking courses focusing on network protocols or high speed networks found in departments of Computer Science, Engineering, IT, and Continuing Education.

High-speed networks dominate both the local area network (LAN) and wide-area network (WAN) markets because of the increased use of multimedia applications and the World Wide Web, and other high-volume needs of users. This book provides a comprehensive, integrated and up-to-date survey of the key issues of high speed TCP/IP networks, the technology that dominates the field of high-speed networking. The author discuses a wide range of design issues related to high-speed networks, including congestion control, provision of different levels of quality of service (QoS), resource reservation, unicast and multicast routing, and multimedia compression. The central theme of the book is the need to carry large volumes of traffic with different QoS requirements over networks operating at very high data rates.

  • Thorough coverage of next-generation Internet protocols including (RSVP), (MPLS), (RTP), and the use of Ipv6.
  • Unified treatment of congestion in data networks; packet-switching, frame relay, ATM networks, and IP-based internets.
  • Broad and detailed coverage of routing, unicast, and multicast.
  • Comprehensive coverage of ATM; basic technology and the newest traffic control standards.
  • Solid, easy-to-absorb mathematical background enabling understanding of the issues related to high-speed network performance and design.
  • Up-to-date treatment of gigabit Ethernet.
  • The first treatment of self-similar traffic for performance assessment in a textbook on networks (Explains the mathematics behind self-similar traffic and shows the performance implications and how to estimate performance parameters.)
  • Up-to-date coverage of compression. (A comprehensive survey.)
  • Coverage of gigabit networks. Gigabit design issues permeate the book.
