Author information

The late Dr. SALAH AIDAROUS worked in the Network Management Division of NEC America on the planning and development of integrated network management systems. Prior to his association with NEC, he was with Nortel Technology (formerly BNR), working on a broad range of assignments in telecommunications networks and services planning and development. THOMAS PLEVYAK is Editor in Chief of IEEE Communications magazine and a past president and director of publications of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc). An IEEE Fellow, he is currently employed at Verizon Communications in Arlington, Virginia, in the field of operations and network management standards.

Review quote

"The book is very practical and well-written for network operation engineers, computer scientists, and professionals. Every IP network professional will find something new and useful in this book." (E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 6) "...a valuable source of information on a broad range of IP network-related management issues for both specialists and newcomers..." (IEEE Communications Magazine, January 2004)

Back cover copy

An essential resource on the future of IP networks Everyone agrees that Internet Protocol (IP) has played and will play a major role in the evolution of networks and services. The exact nature and scope of that role, however, remains a point of discussion. Assembling the foremost experts in their respective fields, editors Salah Aidarous and Thomas Plevyak present the community with an invaluable resource for research and development in Managing IP Networks: Challenges and Opportunities. Issues related to end-to-end network and service management, for example, will dramatically impact the future of IP networks, yet there remains a scholarly deficit between the significance of these topics and their presence in the current literature. Aidarous and Plevyak make up this difference, addressing these and other critical challenges affecting the growth of IP networks, with contributions from: Paul Levine Joberto Martins Burkhard Stiller Mostafa Hashem Sherif Andrea Fumagalli Javier Aracil Luca Valcarenghi Network operations engineers, computer scientists, and management software vendors, as well as professionals in the continuing education and research and development communities, will find Managing IP Networks to be an invaluable addition to their professional libraries.
