About this book

Internet traffic is increasing at a rate of at least 200% per year. The world’s largest Internet Service Provider has recently stated that it expects traffic capacity on its regional trunks to grow to a 1-10 petabit range over the next four to five years. Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM), long-haul fiber-optic links and high-capacity all-optical circuit switches are now being employed at the Internet core to process such massive traffic, consequently creating a demand for novel high-performance packet switching technologies (IP routers, ATM switches, and Ethernet Switches) which feed the optical core.

Over the last ten years, tremendous technological advances have taken place in order to achieve these objectives. High-performance Packet Switching Architectures is the first book to cover these advances in a comprehensive one-volume survey. The book’s editors have brought together contributions from leading researchers in industry and universities, yielding an integrated coverage of the state-of-the-art in packet-switching technologies.

A mix of theoretical and practical material allows the book to act an essential reference for researchers in academia as well as industrial engineers.

About the authors

Dr Itamar Elhanany is an assistant professor in the department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Between 2000-2003 he was the chief scientist and co-founder of TeraCross Inc., a semiconductor company offering Terabit/sec switch fabric integrated circuits. His research areas include high-speed packet switching, scheduling algorithms and network performance analysis.

Dr Mounir Hamdi is a professor of computer science and the director of the computer engineering division at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. His general areas of research are in high-speed packet switches/routers and all-optical networks, on which he has published more than 200 research publications.
