Description

This book describes, analyzes, and recommends traffic engineering (TE) and quality of service (QoS) optimization methods for integrated voice/data dynamic routing networks. These functions control a network's response to traffic demands and other stimuli, such as link failures or node failures. TE and QoS optimization is concerned with measurement, modeling, characterization, and control of network traffic, and the application of techniques to achieve specific performance objectives. The scope of the analysis and recommendations include dimensioning, call/flow and connection routing, QoS resource management, routing table management, dynamic transport routing, and operational requirements. Case studies are included which provide the reader with a concrete way into the technical details and highlight why and how to use the techniques described in the book.

Key Features

  • Includes Case Studies of MPLS and GMPLS Network Optimization
  • Presents state-of-the-art traffic engineering and quality of service optimization methods and illustrates the tradeoffs between the various methods discussed
  • Contains practical Case Studies based on large-scale service provider implementations and architecture plans
  • Written by a highly respected and well known active expert in traffic engineering and quality of service

Readership

Network operators, designers, and software engineers deploying integrated voice/data services such as streaming media, IP telephony, IPTV at such companies as AT&T, Cisco and ISPs
