The recent trend towards the interoperability of traditionally separate networks, such as terrestrial, wireless/cellular, and satellite, for the support of multimedia applications poses new and significantly challenging problems to network design. This book reports on the state-of-the-art work developed during the four years of operation of the COST 279 Action, Analysis and Design of Advanced Multiservice Networks supporting Mobility, Multimedia, and Internetworking, by its participating researchers, originating from over 40 research institutions from the academic, industrial, and telecom operator worlds. The work includes both fundamental, methodological, and applied aspects of network performance evaluation and design. Analysis and Design of Advanced Multiservice Networks Supporting Mobility, Multimedia, and Internetworking contains a detailed account of the work developed, supported on an extensive bibliography of material published in the peer-reviewed literature. It contains the following six chapters: IP-Based NetworksQueueing Models Traffic Measurement, Characterization, and ModelingWireless NetworksOptical NetworksPeer-to-Peer Services Analysis and Design of Advanced Multiservice Networks Supporting Mobility, Multimedia, and Internetworking will appeal to both practitioners of network design, and to researchers aiming to map future directions in networking research.
