Synopses & Reviews
The diversity of methodologies and applications in the literature for the performance modelling and analysis of ATM networks, widely considered as the new generation of high speed communication systems, attests to the breadth and richness of recent ATM research and developments Performance Evaluation and Applications of ATM Networks contains seventeen tutorial papers by eminent researchers and practitioners in the ATM field worldwide. It offers a fundamental source of reference, reflecting essential state-of-the-art material for further research and development in the performance evaluation and applications field of ATM networks. Topics discussed in this book include: ATM Traffic Modelling and Characterization; ATM Traffic Management and Control ATM Routing and Network Resilience; IP/ATM Networks Integration; ATM Special Topics: Optical, Wireless and Satellite Networks; Analytical Techniques for ATM Networks. Performance Evaluation and Applications of ATM Networks maintains throughout an effective balance between descriptive and quantitative approaches for the presentation of important ATM mechanisms and performance evaluation techniques. It unifies ATM performance modelling material already known and introduces readers to some unfamiliar and unexplored ATM performance evaluation and application research areas. Performance Evaluation and Applications of ATM Networks is ideal for personnel in computer/communication industries as well as academic researchers in computer science and electrical engineering.
Papers by researchers and practitioners in the performance evaluation and applications field of ATM networks offer a source of reference, reflecting material for further R&D. Topics discussed include: ATM traffic modelling and characterization; and optical, wireless and satelite networks.
