Computer and Networking consultant Stallings presents a survey of the recent developments in the design issues of internets based on the Internet Protocol (IP) and the entire TCP/IP protocol suite, and ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) networks (the networking technologies that dominate the high-speed scene and share many design approaches). Writing for both a professional and academic audience, he first presents an overview of the fundamental principles of the networks, and then discusses performance modeling and estimation, congestion and traffic management, internet routing, quality of service in IP networks, and compression techniques.
