As the cost of building and upgrading complex, large-scale networks skyrockets, carefully crafted network designs become critical- a savings of as little as 5% in your network can amount to tens of thousands of dollars per month. Wide Area Network Design: Concepts and Tools for Optimization provides the information you need to tackle the challenges of designing a network that meets your performance goals within the cost constraints of your organization. If you are considering public service alternatives such as frame relay, designing your own network with the tools provided in this book will empower you to estimate cost savings and evaluate bids from competing carriers.

Intended for network designers, planners, and architects, this book enables you to estimate traffic flows and requirements in your network and explains how to use various algorithms to design a network which must meets these requirements.



* Presents underlying design principles to help you understand emerging and future networking protocols and technologies
* Provides cost and traffic generators for estimating these parameters in your network
* Introduces the unique IncreMENTOR algorithm which can help avert disaster when the traffic flows in your network have changed
