With a foreword by Kannan Kothandaraman "This is the first book about QOS that I actually enjoyed reading precisely because the authors focused on real-life QoS and not in academic discussions about it." Per Nihlen, IP Network Manager, NORDUnet The new authoritative, practical guide to delivering QOS guarantees This new benchmark in quality of service (QOS) study is written by two experts in the field who deal with QOS predicaments every day. The authors not only provide a lucid understanding of modern theory of QOS mechanisms in packet networks but how to apply them in practice. In addition, they detail the QOS management features found in modern routers used by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and large enterprise companies and networks, all in an effort to enable network managers and engineers to configure production networks with a quality of service guarantee. The book's focus on addressing network behavior ("real effects") in relation to the configuration of network elements (routers and switches), is both refreshing and insightful. QOS-Enabled Networks contains up-to-date coverage of: QOS mechanisms in packet networks and how to apply them in practice QOS management features now common in modern-day routers How network behavior is related to configuration of network elements Layer 2 VPN and QOS QOS in mobile LTE networks QOS-Enabled Networks is an invaluable guide for networking engineers needing to provide QOS services for service providers, ISPs and large enterprises, as well as for network design and operations engineers.

Drawing from the most recent work on economic regulation, this book introduces readers to the main principles and examines how economic regulation is applied in four key public utility industries - electricity, gas, water and telecommunications. Written for students and practitioners with little prior knowledge of economic regulation, this is an accessible, non-technical entry point to the subject area, exploring the fundamental questions: Why do we regulate? What are alternatives to regulation? Which institutions are involved in regulation? What have been the impacts of regulation? Readers will gain a clear understanding of the basic principles that apply to all regulated sectors, as well as the regulatory choices that reflect the specific economic and physical characteristics of different industries. Case studies demonstrate connections between regulatory theory and practice, and extensive references provide readers with resources for more in-depth study.

Quality of Service is expected to become the most important communications topic in the new millennium. The acclaimed author, Gilbert Held, provides a comprehensive guide to obtaining a Quality of Service (QoS) capability in a Cisco hardware environment. Today there are many aspects of the QoS 'puzzle' and Cisco is providing users with a wide range of solutions. Some solutions are well known but do not scale for use on the Internet or on a large corporate Intranet. Other solutions must be used in conjunction with different schemes for true end-to-end QoS. That is where this book comes in, providing a guide to the various pieces of the QoS puzzle. Quality of Service in a Cisco Networking Environment: * Is a one-stop location to obtain complete and concise information about achieving QoS for applications transported over local and wireless area networks. * Provides a tutorial on the operation of different QoS techniques (IEEE 802.1p, 802.1Q, Differentiated Services, and RSVP). * Describes Cisco Router QoS and Switch QoS commands. * Gives examples of QoS configurations. * Includes a series of easy to implement IP and Frame Relay traffic enhancement techniques. Written for the local and wide area network planners and managers, local area network administrators and router administrators, every chapter initially guides the reader through the theory behind a specific QoS technique. This information is then followed with a series of Cisco command examples tailored to a specific QoS technique. Readers learn both how a QoS technique operates and how to place it into effect in a Cisco environment.

For the first time the problems of voice services self-similarity are discussed systematically and in detail with specific examples and illustrations. Self-Similar Processes in Telecommunications considers the self-similar (fractal and multifractal) models of telecommunication traffic and efficiency based on the assumption that its traffic has fractal or multifractal properties (is self-similar). The theoretical aspects of the most well-known traffic models demonstrating self-similar properties are discussed in detail and the comparative analysis of the different models’ efficiency for self-similar traffic is presented. This book demonstrates how to use self-similar processes for designing new telecommunications systems and optimizing existing networks so as to achieve maximum efficiency and serviceability. The approach is rooted in theory, describing the algorithms (the logical arithmetical or computational procedures that define how a task is performed) for modeling these self-similar processes. However, the language and ideas are essentially accessible for those who have a general knowledge of the subject area and the advice is highly practical: all models, problems and solutions are illustrated throughout using numerous real-world examples. Adopts a detailed, theoretical, yet broad-based and practical mathematical approach for designing and operating numerous types of telecommunications systems and networks so as to achieve maximum efficiency Places the subject in context, describing the current algorithms that make up the fractal or self-similar processes while pointing to the future development of the technology Offers a comparative analysis of the different types of self-similar process usage within the context of local area networks, wide area networks and in the modeling of video traffic and mobile communications networks Describes how mathematical models are used as a basis for building numerous types of network, including voice, audio, data, video, multimedia services and IP (Internet Protocol) telephony The book will appeal to the wide range of specialists dealing with the design and exploitation of telecommunication systems. It will be useful for the post-graduate students, lecturers and researchers connected with communication networks disciplines.
