If you work in any aspect of internetworking planning, design, development, or management, you need to have as complete a picture as possible of how the Internet is structured and what makes it work. Internet Architectures explains Internet components and the technical relationships between them, names the key players involved and the agreements currently in place between them, reveals proprietary architectures, and arms you with a wealth of practical information on:

* Backbone technologies, including packet over SONET

* Protocols and a description of ISP network architectures

* Servers, routers, and software

* Communications infrastructures

* Access technology, including xDSL, ADSL, FITL, and frame relay

* QoS and its support technologies, including ATM, RSVP, IPv6

* Policy, regulation, peering, and reciprocity arrangements

* Multimedia and supporting technology

* Internetworking security

This book provides an in-depth overview of the Internet's structure and components, including who controls which pieces of the system. The authors explain various Internet communications infrastructures and what it will take to be a key Internet player in the next phase of development.
