About this Textbook

This book is aimed to provide a basic description of current networking technologies and protocols as well as to provide important tools for network performance analysis based on queuing theory. The second edition adds selected contents in the first part of the book for what concerns: (i) the token bucket regulator and traffic shaping issues; (ii) the TCP protocol congestion control that has a significant part in current networking; (iii) basic satellite networking issues; (iv) adding details on QoS support in IP networks. The book is organized so that we have first networking technologies and protocols (Part I) and then theory and exercises with applications to the different technologies and protocols (Part II).
This book is intended as a textbook for master level courses in networking and telecommunications sectors.

Reviews

“This book is a fantastic exposition of sound concepts explained beautifully. … it is clearly an advanced undergraduate or graduate-level book. Researchers will love it. … it has all the necessary ingredients to turn into a longtime classic book in this area. The author successfully pulls together all of the necessary research and knowledge in the area of computer network theory.” (Naga Narayanaswamy, Computing Reviews, December, 2015)
