There is inclusive coverage of SONET/SDH, ATM networks, Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS), optical networks, access networks and voice over ATM and MPLS. The book presents tried and tested material based on an existing, successful course.. It details the history and development of such networks, and defines their terminology and architecture, before progressing to aspects such as signaling and standards. A thorough knowledge of modern connection-oriented networks is essential to understanding the current and near-future state of networking. Connection-oriented Networks: * Provides in-depth, systematic coverage of several connection-oriented networks in a single volume * Explains topics such as the Generic Framing Procedure, Label Distribution Protocols, Wavelength Routing Optical Networks, Optical Burst Switching, and Access Networks in detail * Illustrates all concepts with problems and simulation projects to test
“This book presents a unique perspective on the various flavours of connection-orientated networks.” (IEEE Communications Magazine, June 2006)
Not worth it KingFisher First of all this book is too academic and second everything that is there in this book can be found online. The content is definitely not worth the cost. I bought this book only because my course adviser made is compulsory.. ABDUL HALIM ZAIM said The best and only book devoted to connection-oriented networks.. Finally I found a book that explains things very well in asystematic structure. It is readable. The author explains the most difficult subjects very clearly. I really enjoyed reading it and used it on my courses as a textbook. The free recorded lectures are also available through the author's homepage ( This is also a big plus both to understand the material and for the instructors.. Usual textbook Amazon Customer Very detailed, rather boring at times, but that's probably due to the topic. Explanations of detailed concepts are a little brief and kind of fly through. Covers a lot of material well.
