Communication networking [electronic resource] : an analytical approach / Anurag Kumar, D. Manjunath, Joy Kuri.

By: Kumar, Anurag.
Contributor(s): Manjunath, D | Kuri, Joy.
Material type: TextTextSeries: Morgan Kaufmann series in networking: Publisher: Amsterdam ; Boston : Elsevier/Morgan Kaufmann, c2004Description: 1 online resource (xxvii, 929 p.) : ill.ISBN: 9780124287518; 0124287514; 008048851X (electronic bk.); 9780080488516 (electronic bk.).Subject(s): Telecommunication systems -- Management | Multiplexing | Telecommunication -- Switching systems | Routers (Computer networks) | COMPUTERS -- Networking -- GeneralGenre/Form: Electronic books.Additional physical formats: Print version:: Communication networking.DDC classification: 004.6/5 | 621.382 Online resources: EBSCOhost
Contents:
Networking : functional elements and current practice -- Multiplexing : performance measures and engineering issues -- Stream sessions : deterministic network analysis -- Stream sessions : stochastic analysis -- Circuit-multiplexed networks -- Adaptive bandwidth sharing for elastic traffic -- Multiple access : wireless networks -- Performance and architectural issues -- Queueing in packet switches -- Switching fabrics -- Packet processing -- Routing : engineering issues -- Shortest path routing of elastic aggregates -- Virtual path routing of elastic aggregates -- Routing of stream-type sessions.
Summary: The viewpoint is that communication networking is about efficient resource sharing. The focus is on the three building blocks of communication networking, namely, multiplexing, switching and routing. The approach is analytical, with the discussion being driven by mathematical analyses of and solutions to specific engineering problems. The result? A comprehensive, effectively organized treatment of core engineering issues in communication networking. Written for both the networking professional and for the classroom, this book covers fundamental concepts in detail and places design issues in context by drawing on real world examples from current technologies. Systematically uses mathematical models and analyses to drive the development of a practical understanding of core network engineering problems. Provides in-depth coverage of many current topics, including network calculus with deterministically-constrained traffic, congestion control for elastic traffic, packet switch queuing, switching architectures, virtual path routing, and routing for quality of service. Includes over 200 hands-on exercises and class-tested problems, dozens of schematic figures, a review of key mathematical concepts, and a glossary.
