DescriptionThis book covers at an advanced level mathematical methods for analysis of telecommunication networks. The book concentrates on various call models used in telecommunications such as quality of service (QoS) in packet-switched Internet Protocol (IP) networks, Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), and Time Division Multiplexing (TDM). Professionals, researchers, and graduate and advanced undergraduate students of telecommunications will benefit from this invaluable guidebook.
