Beschreibung

Das Buch schafft eine solide Grundlage für das Verständnis der Netzwerke der nächsten Generation, ihres Potenzials bei der Unterstützung neuer und verbesserter Anwendungen und ihrer Verbindung mit herkömmlichen Netzwerken. Die Herangehensweise ist eher analytisch als beschreibend. Telekommunikationssysteme basieren auf Standards; das Buch analysiert und erklärt die Konzepte und Prinzipien solcher Standards für Netzwerke, Dienste und Anwendungen. Der analytische Ansatz eignet sich zur Bewertung und zur Diskussion von Design, Integration und Betrieb dieser Technologien in Netzwerken der nächsten Generation.
