High Speed Networks: TCP/IP and ATM Design presents integrated, up-to-date coverage of key issues in high-speed TCP/IP and ATM network design. Surveys developments in high-speed networks to provide a solid grasp of technical design issues related to carrying large volumes of traffic with differing quality-of-service requirements at very high data rates. Covering basic technology as well as new traffic control standards for the asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) in WANs and LANs, this book presents a range of related topics. Among these are: next-generation Internet technology; high-speed (100 Mbps) and Gigabit Ethernet; TCP performance design issues; unicast and multicast routing; and compression. Also covers self-similar traffic with an explanation of the mathematics behind it for the first time in any book. In addition, it presents math essential for understanding the issues of high-speed network performance and design. There is a web page (shore/~ws/HsNet.html) for the book. An essential reference for any professional designing or maintaining high-speed computer networks.
