Advanced Internet Protocols, Services, and Applications
Today, the internet and computer networking are essential parts of business, learning, and personal communications and entertainment. Virtually all messages or transactions sent over the internet are carried using internet infrastructure- based on advanced internet protocols. Advanced internet protocols ensure that both public and private networks operate with maximum performance, security, and flexibility.
This book is intended to provide a comprehensive technical overview and survey of advanced internet protocols, first providing a solid introduction and going on to discuss internetworking technologies, architectures and protocols. The book also shows application of the concepts in next generation networks and discusses protection and restoration, as well as various tunnelling protocols and applications. The book ends with a thorough discussion of emerging topics.
From the Back Cover
Explains how advanced Internet protocols will support the next-generation networks
Most messages or transactions sent over the web are dependent on an infrastructure based on advanced Internet protocols. These protocols ensure that public and private networks operate at maximum performance, security, and flexibility.
Advanced Internet Protocols, Services, and Applications fully examines all the core concepts underlying advanced Internet protocols, explaining both their current applications and their applicability to the design and deployment of the next-generation networks. The book begins with an introduction to Internet working technologies, architectures, and protocols and then progressively builds to discussions of new and emerging advanced Internet protocols and their applications. Key topics include:
- Transport layer protocols, including transmission control, user datagram, stream control transmission, and real-time transport protocols
- Internet architecture and routing protocols
- Layer-2 encapsulation protocols that allow Layer-2 connectivity through non-adjacent networks
- Point-to-point virtual connectivity and virtual broadcast access connectivity
- Key differences between IPv4 and IPv6
- Common threats to networks and countermeasures to protect them
With its comprehensive technical overview, survey of advanced Internet protocols, and examples of real-world networks, services, and applications, this is an ideal book for both students and professionals in software, hardware, systems engineering, telecommunications, and networking.
