Management, Control and Evolution of IP Networks
Publication Date: March 2007 Hardback 674 pp.
Internet Protocols (IP) networks have, for a number of years, provided the basis for modern communication channels. However, the control and management of these networks needs to be extended so that the required Quality of Service can be achieved. Guy Pujolle starts by considering the various aspects of Quality of Service and goes on to look at the evolution of IP networks. Topics include the improvement of addressing in IP version 6, enhanced security, the adaptation of video for the Internet and voice over IP. Information about new generations of IP networks is given, covering the future of pervasive networks (that is networks that are always present), Wi-Fi, the control of mobility and improved Quality of Service, sensor networks, inter-vehicle communication and optical networks.
