The explosion of traffic over data communications networks has resulted in a growing demand for Quality of Service (QoS) techniques to ensure network reliability, particularly in regard to e-commerce applications. Written by two experts in the field, this book covers the implementation of QoS techniques from an engineering point of view. Readers will find practical, up-to-date coverage of all key QoS technologies, real-world engineering examples illustrating theoretical results, and a discussion of new control techniques for the next generation multimedia networks.
