Abstract:

This edition reflects the latest networking technologies with a special emphasis on wireless networking, including 802.11, 802.16, Bluetooth, and 3G cellular, paired with fixed-network coverage of ADSL, Internet over cable, gigabit Ethernet, MPLS, and peer-to-peer networks. It incorporates new coverage on 3G mobile phone networks, Fiber to the Home, RFID, delay-tolerant networks, and 802.11 security, in addition to expanded material on Internet routing, multicasting, congestion control, quality of service, real-time transport, and content distribution.
