Review:

This addition to Prentice Hall's Advanced Communication Technologies series provides an engineer's look at today's cutting-edge Internet protocols and standards. Author Uyless Black lays out the basic technical details of the Internet and several up-and-coming multimedia specifications.

Advanced Internet Technologies opens with an excellent chapter on the history of the Internet. This chapter traces the Net from its origins to recent developments. The following chapter clearly presents the low-level architectural details of the Net, illustrating how TCP, IP, and User Datagram Protocol (UDP) all work together. This section digs a bit deeper into the architecture than the perfunctory introductions of most Internet books.

Black then presents a number of multimedia protocols, such as Voice over IP (VoIP), H.323, IPv6, PPP, Mobile IP, IGMP, RTP, and much more. These protocols are the foundation of tomorrow's products and make advanced operations, such as Internet telephony, wireless Internet access, multicasting, and time synchronization, possible.

This alphabet soup of technical specifications is demystified with a textbook-style presentation, complete with plenty of diagrams and tables. While many of the protocol details covered here are hidden from most Web users, network administrators and others interested in the down-and-dirty details will find this book to be a valuable reference. --Stephen W. Plain

The complete engineer's guide to packet-switched Internet communications!

As the Internet revolutionizes telecommunications, network providers are transitioning from traditional circuit-switched networks to IP-based packet-switched networks. In this book, globally respected author Uyless Black introduces advanced Internet technology and the challenges of Internet communications from the unique perspective of the telecommunications professional.

Black covers the Internet's architecture, protocols, and traffic characteristics, and reviews the key issues involved in transforming the Internet from its data-only roots to a true multi-service network that can handle voice, video and multimedia with comparable quality and reliability. He covers every key IP protocol technology likely to play a major role in tomorrow's Internet, including:

  • Voice-over-IP
  • MPEG-2 and the H.32x series of multimedia
  • Layer 3 Switching, including both leading approaches-tag switching and IP switching
  • IPv6
  • IP multicasting protocols and systems, including IGMP and MBONE
  • Multi-service protocols, including RSVP, RTP and RTCP

Black presents detailed coverage of routing, route discovery and traffic integrity operations; as well as state-of-the-art techniques for minimizing packet delay. He also takes a detailed look at Mobile IP: where it stands as a solution for wireless Internet connectivity and where it's headed. Whether you're already involved in Internet service development, or you expect to be, Advanced Internet Technologies brings together all the information you need to succeed.
