The explosion of traffic over data communications networks has resulted in a growing demand for Quality of Service (QoS) techniques to ensure network reliability, particularly in regard to e-commerce applications. Written by two experts in the field, this book covers the implementation of QoS techniques from an engineering point of view. Readers will find practical, up-to-date coverage of all key QoS technologies, real-world engineering examples illustrating theoretical results, and a discussion of new control techniques for the next generation multimedia networks. It is of interest to electrical engineers and computer scientists involved with high-speed networks.

Back cover copy

Expert coverage of the state of the art in quality of service implementation

Quality of Service Control in High-Speed Networks addresses the basics, theory, architectures, and technologies to implement QoS control in ATM, IP, and MPLS high-speed networks. It provides a comprehensive overview of existing QoS control techniques and describes practical approaches to their implementation.

The authors survey the most up-to-date developments in control strategies in self-contained chapters-complete with extensive reference lists-that allow study of select topics. Quality of Service Control in High-Speed Networks covers these topics and more:
* Admission control and data communication channel acceptance
* Traffic access control
* Packet scheduling algorithms
* Packet fair queuing implementation
* Buffer management
* Flow and congestion control
* QoS routing
* Basic architecture and conceptual models of differentiated services (DiffServ)
* Multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) technology

This comprehensive discussion of QoS technologies, techniques, and architectures suits the needs of engineering students as well as practitioners in software, hardware, and system design.
