Communication Networking is a comprehensive, effectively organized introduction to the realities of communication network engineering. Written for both the workplace and the classroom, this book lays the foundation and provides the answers required for building an efficient, state-of-the-art network-one that can expand to meet growing demand and evolve to capitalize on coming technological advances. It focuses on the three building blocks out of which a communication network is constructed: multiplexing, switching, and routing. The discussions are based on the viewpoint that communication networking is about efficient resource sharing.

The progression is natural: the book begins with individual physical links and proceeds to their combination in a network. The approach is analytical: discussion is driven by mathematical analyses of and solutions to specific engineering problems. Fundamental concepts are explained in detail and design issues are placed in context through real world examples from current technologies. The text offers 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. It also includes more than 200 hands-on exercises and class-tested problems, dozens of schematic figures, a review of key mathematical concepts, and a glossary.

This book will be of interest to networking professionals whose work is primarily architecture definition and implementation, i.e., network engineers and designers at telecom companies, industrial research labs, etc. It will also appeal to final year undergrad and first year graduate students in EE, CE, and CS programs.

  • 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.

Book Description:

A network engineering approach to discussing the elements required to build a communications network out of the basic "plumbing" of communication links.

From the Back Cover:

"This book combines an innovative and uniform representation of a variety of communication networks, simple to understand motivations for real design problems for these networks, intuitive approaches to solutions, and rigorous mathematical analysis where appropriate. It will be very valuable both as a textbook and as a reference for practitioners."
--Bharat Doshi, Director of Transformational Communication, Johns Hopkins University, Applied Physics Laboratory

"It has been very difficult to write a textbook on networking that is relevant and rigorous because the field is diverse and fast changing. This book stands out in both providing the readers with the essential domain knowledge and equipping them with fundamental tools to analyze and design new systems as the networking field evolves."
--Steven Low, Associate Professor, California Institute of Technology

"This book is a well-researched compendium of theoretical modeling applied to a number of practical networking problems. Some interesting topics of note are important insights in the design of packet switches, performance of TCP under various conditions, and the design of packet address prefix lookups. Although much of the material is mathematically advanced, the book contains a comprehensive set of appendices useful as a reference for the researcher or advanced practitioner."
--Dr. David E. McDysan, Fellow, MCI Internet Architecture and Technology

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.

Features:
* Systematically uses mathematical models and analyses to drive the development of an understanding of core network engineering problems and their solutions.
* Provides an in-depth coverage of fundamentals, with example applications to specific systems; in particular, network analysis from deterministic models (e.g., as used in IntServ/RSVP), the effective bandwidth approach, blocking systems (e.g., cellular networks, and lightpath networks), congestion control algorithms (e.g., TCP), wireless networks (e.g., IEEE 802.11 WLANs and ad hoc networks), queueing in packet switches, switching architectures, packet processing (e.g., IP route lookup and packet classification), virtual path routing (e.g., as in MPLS), and routing for delay-constrained traffic (e.g., as in VoIP).
* Includes extensive bibliographic discussions, over 200 hands-on exercises and class-tested problems, nearly 300 schematic figures, a review of key mathematical concepts, and a glossary.
