-- Two Big Issues -- Traffic management and Quality of Service are two of the most important issues facing the Internet today. As Internet usage booms, networks are experiencing huge bottlenecks. When QoS and traffic management techniques are applied to the LAN, WAN and Internet, they run smoothly and information flows.
-- First book to market to present the concept of traffic management in an easy to understand and intuitive manner with real life anecdotes and examples. Takes the reader step-by-step through the basic underlying principles of traffic management, through the theory behind traffic management, and applications of traffic management in the LAN, WAN, and Internet.
-- Convergence section -- Explains how to make convergence work -- how to get voice and data to flow without bottling up the network
-- Internet II -- Includes an inside look at how new traffic management techniques will be used in Internet II, the new Internet backbone.
-- Complete -- This is the first book to present the concept of traffic management in an easy to understand and intuitive manner with real life anecdotes and examples, including:
-- service policy and capacity of Internet traffic systems
-- traffic management and QoS, IP, and ATM
-- detailed discussion and tutorial on queuing theory and its relationship to traffic management
-- About QoS -- Short for Quality of Service, a networking term that specifies a guaranteed throughput level. It allows service providers to guarantee to their customers that end-to-end latency will not exceed a specified level.

Traffic management and quality of service are techniques which, when applied to LAN, WAN and the Internet, facilitate the smooth flow of information. This text explains how to make convergence work - getting voice and data to flow without bottling up the network. Internet II is also covered.From the Back Cover:
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.
