Computing in Communication Networks: From Theory to Practice provides comprehensive details and practical implementation tactics on the novel concepts and enabling technologies at the core of the paradigm shift from store and forward (dumb) to compute and forward (intelligent) in future communication networks and systems. The book explains how to create virtualized large scale testbeds using well-established open source software, such as Mininet and Docker. It shows how and where to place disruptive techniques, such as machine learning, compressed sensing, or network coding in a newly built testbed. In addition, it presents a comprehensive overview of current standardization activities.
Specific chapters explore upcoming communication networks that support verticals in transportation, industry, construction, agriculture, health care and energy grids, underlying concepts, such as network slicing and mobile edge cloud, enabling technologies, such as SDN/NFV/ ICN, disruptive innovations, such as network coding, compressed sensing and machine learning, how to build a virtualized network infrastructure testbed on one’s own computer, and more.
- Provides a uniquely comprehensive overview on the individual building blocks that comprise the concept of computing in future networks
- Gives practical hands-on activities to bridge theory and implementation
- Includes software and examples that are not only employed throughout the book, but also hosted on a dedicated website
