Description

Computing in Communication Networks gives an understanding, together with practical implementation skills, of 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. It 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, this book provides a comprehensive overview of current standardization activities for readers that are practitioners or industry implementers.

With this book you will learn:

  • The needs of upcoming communication networks to support verticals in transportation, industry, construction, agriculture, health care, and energy grids
  • Underlying concepts, such as network slicing and mobile edge cloud
  • The enabling technologies, such as SDN / NFV / ICN
  • Of disruptive innovations, such as network coding, compressed sensing, and machine learning
  • How to build a virtualized network infrastructure testbed on one’s own computer
  • To place new functionality within the virtualized network infrastructure

Key Features

  • Provide a uniquely comprehensive overview of the individual building blocks comprising the concept of computing in future networks
  • Gives practical hands-on activities to bridge theory and implementation
  • The software and examples employed throughout the book are hosted on a dedicated web site

Readership

University researchers, R&D industry engineers in mobile and wireless communications engineering and computer networks
