One-stop solution to frustrating network traffic jams
Is booming traffic going to bind the Internet and intranets in gridlock? You can bet on it! Fortunately, there are ways to keep data, voice and video flowing.
Using real-life anecdotes and examples, QOS and Traffic Management in IP and ATM Networks, by David McDysan, takes you step-by-step through traffic management principles and applications. You're shown how congestion is created and how to avoid, react, and relieve it to keep traffic moving on the LAN, WAN and Internet. You get a thorough review of routing protocols and how to address capacity requirements and QoS. Mathematical models of service...basic and advanced queuing theory...how to analyze congestion...and network modeling concepts are clearly explained, with easy-to-use, cookbook-style formulas.
Coverage includes a useful and timely discussion of how to make convergence work in an IP or ATM network, plus the new traffic management techniques that will be used in the Internet backbone of the 21st century.About the Author:
