  • Demonstrates the co-existence with legacy technologies with a smooth transition
  • Addresses wired and wireless networking perspective and how to transition to the legacy technologies
This book is directed towards some of the recent networking demands that would be better addressed by a clean slate approach both from an architectural and protocols perspective. Two examples are discussed, one targeting the current Internet as an example of wired networks and the secondĀ  focusing on mobile ad hoc networks as an example of wireless networks. The scope of the book shows how one can transition out of the current networking and layering principles and hence the constraints imposed by them.
