About this book

Broadband communications is widely recognized as one of the key technologies for building the next generation global network infrastructure to support ever-increasing multimedia applications. This book contains a collection of timely leading-edge research papers that address some of the important issues of providing such a broadband network infrastructure.
Broadband Communications represents the selected proceedings of the Fifth International Conference on Broadband Communications, sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and held in Hong Kong in November 1999.
The book is organized according to the eighteen technical sessions of the conference. The topics covered include internet services, traffic modeling, internet traffic control, performance evaluation, billing, pricing, admission policy, mobile network protocols, TCP/IP performance, mobile network performance, bandwidth allocation, switching systems, traffic flow control, routing, congestion and admission control, multicast protocols, network management, and quality of service. It will serve as an essential reference for computer scientists and practitioners.
