From the Back Cover:

High-speed networking--explained

Tap into the power of ATM and MPLS technology with this definitive guide. Focusing on practical application over theory, this book combines background information with detailed treatment of all key areas of ATM and MPLS technology--making this an essential resource. You'll find details on the topologies, protocols, and services used in today's digital communications networks, and read provocative predictions about how ATM and MPLS might evolve. Detailed, informative, and comprehensive, this is the ultimate resource for understanding and working with this essential and powerful networking technology.

This book will help you to:

  • Understand basic communications networking principles, including circuits, multiplexing, and switching
  • Work with both connection-oriented and connectionless protocols such as frame relay and IP
  • Understand how ATM and MPLS support IP, data services, voice and video
  • Discover the main application of MPLS in support of IP traffic engineering, as wells as network-based VPNs, and support of multiple services using tunneling
  • Use traffic management, Quality of Service (QoS), and congestion control
  • Become familiar with critical concepts of IP routed networks and LANs
  • Learn about business drivers and the general architecture required for voice over packet networks
  • Understand how to apply network management and performance measurement

Important topics include:

  • Technology enablers and trends
  • Time division multiplexing and N-ISDN
  • Connection-oriented data protocols--X.25 and frame relay
  • Ethernet LANs, bridging
  • ATM and B-ISDN standards
  • IP and MPLS standards
  • MPLS and ATM routing and signaling
  • Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)
  • Network and performance management

About the Author:

Dr. David E. McDysan (Herndon, VA) has been on the board of the ATM Forum, and has led technical committees on network management and traffic management.
