Computer Networks: Performance and Quality of Service

Publisher: Rutgers University | 2010 | ISBN: n/a | PDF | 510 pages | 11 MB
This book reviews modern computer networks with a particular focus on performance and quality of service.
There is a need to look towards future, where wired and wireless/mobile networks will be mixed and where multimedia applications will play greater role. In reviewing these technologies, the author puts emphasis on underlying principles and core concepts, rather than meticulousness or completeness.
This book is designed for upper-division undergraduate and graduate courses in computer networking. It is intended primarily for learning, rather than reference. the author also believes that the book’s focus on basic concepts should be appealing to practitioners interested in the “whys” behind the commonly encountered networking technologies. the author assumes that the readers will have basic knowledge of probability and statistics, which are reviewed in the Appendix. Most concepts do not require mathematical sophistication beyond a first undergraduate course.
