About this book

High-Performance Networks for Multimedia Applications presents the latest research on the services and protocols for networks providing the communication support for distributed multimedia applications.
The need for end-to-end QoS for these multimedia applications is raising the stakes for a powerful shaping and scheduling in the network adapter. It is also creating a need for new services at the ATM layer, CBR and VBR being augmented by UBR, ABR and GFR which have to be evaluated in the TCP/IP environment of today and tomorrow.
With the pressure of all the new technologies available today, the backbone architecture needs to be revisited and the success of the TCP/IP must not eliminate the possibility of adding a native ATM access to it.
Most of the research in communication services such as IntServ, DiffServ and Native ATM is driven by the requirements of multimedia systems and this book illustrates the new emphasis by bringing telecommunication and computer communication experts together with application designers. This is particularly true for the security issues also addressed here.
Last but not least, modeling techniques and mathematical models are essential to assess the performance of the networks to be built and to evaluate next century scenarios unachievable by a simple scaling of today's solutions.
High-Performance Networks for Multimedia Applications is a collection of high quality research papers and the in-depth treatment of the subjects provides interesting and innovative solutions. It is an essential reference for telecommunication and computer experts and QoS-based application designers. It is also a comprehensive text for graduate students in high-perforrnance networks and multimedia applications.
