Introduction to IP and ATM Design and Performance With Applications Analysis Software Second Edition J M Pitts and J A Schormans Queen Mary, University of London, UK "...take on network design and performance issues and win!" Building on the first edition′s success, this second edition includes a substantial amount of new material, particularly to reflect the growth in the importance of traffic engineering for IP. Since the publication of the first edition there has been considerable work in the IP community to make the technology QoS aware. Essentially the techniques and mechanisms required to do this are generic, but are often disguised by the use of confusing jargon. The authors keep things intuitive and easy to understand, offering a simple and imaginative approach to analytical techniques and providing a fundamental grasp of queueing methods for key switching, buffering, and traffic control functions. Armed with this second edition, engineers and students will be able to tackle the network design and performance issues of today′s – and tomorrow′s – technologies ... with confidence! Features include:

∗ Essentials of IP and ATM performance evaluation using analysis and simulation

∗ Key formulas for traffic and queueing behaviour

∗ Practical examples, graphs and tables for design and dimensioning

∗ Introduction to simulation, including accelerated techniques

∗ Four chapters dedicated to IP queueing, resource reservation, buffer management and self–similar traffic

∗ Excess–rate analysis fully explained – leading to many simple–to–use solutions for both IP and ATM

∗ Summary chapter of traffic issues and solutions, giving a route map to all formulas, their parameters, usage and location

∗ An accompanying website featuring all the formulas in MathCAD(r) files so you can try them out for yourself!
