About this book

This authoritative volume presents a comprehensive guide to the evaluation and design of networked systems with improved disaster resilience. The text offers enlightening perspectives on issues relating to all major failure scenarios, including natural disasters, disruptions caused by adverse weather conditions, massive technology-related failures, and malicious human activities.

Topics and features: describes methods and models for the analysis and evaluation of disaster-resilient communication networks; examines techniques for the design and enhancement of disaster-resilient systems; provides a range of schemes and algorithms for resilient systems; reviews various advanced topics relating to resilient communication systems; presents insights from an international selection of more than 100 expert researchers working across the academic, industrial, and governmental sectors.

This practically-focused monograph, providing invaluable support on topics of resilient networking equipment and software, is an essential reference for network professionals including network and networked systems operators, networking equipment vendors, providers of essential services, and regulators. The work can also serve as a supplementary textbook for graduate and PhD courses on networked systems resilience.
