A timely and relevant analysis of today′s complex call models
In today′s world of ever–expanding telecommunications options, here is an advanced–level text that covers the mathematical methods used in the analysis of modern telecom networks, with emphasis on a variety of call models such as quality of service (QoS) in packet–switched Internet Protocol (IP) networks, Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), and Time Division Multiplexing (TDM). The authors move from basic principles to complex concepts and outline the fundamental steps toward modeling and analyzing each system. Illustrative numerical examples are carried out using three computational tools, Excel, Matlab®, and Maple.
Refined and class tested for more than five years, Modeling and Analysis of Telecommunications Networks will benefit telecom researchers, students, and professionals alike, with thorough coverage that includes:
- Plentiful numerical examples that illustrate the material covered and utilize the tools described
- Complex concepts supported by extensive computations and detailed derivations
- Analytical work complemented by a chapter presenting mathematical foundations of simulation
- A complementary Web site with computational software that will be regularly updated with new examples and exercises
