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
∗ SONET and ATM
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.
