About this book

The book presents mechanisms, protocols, and system architectures to achieve end-to-end Quality-of-Service (QoS) over heterogeneous wired/wireless networks in the Internet. Particular focus is on measurement techniques, traffic engineering mechanisms and protocols, signalling protocols as well as transport protocol extensions to support fairness and QoS. It shows how those mechanisms and protocols can be combined into a comprehensive end-to-end QoS architecture to support QoS in the Internet over heterogeneous wired/wireless access networks. Finally, techniques for evaluation of QoS mechanisms such as simulation and emulation are presented.


The book is aimed at graduate and post-graduate students in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering with focus in data communications and networking as well as for professionals working in this area.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is a collection of papers that deal with various aspects of QoS protocols. This is a very technically sophisticated presentation for the technically sophisticated reader. The book begins with a series of four chapters that discuss QoS basics, including requirements, architectures, measurements, traffic engineering, and signaling models. … This book is a fascinating read for the technically minded." (Charles K. Davis, ACM Computing Reviews, December, 2009)
