Computer and Communication Networks provides an effective blend of theory and implementation not found in other books. Key features include: Figures and images that simplify complex topics Equations and algorithms Case studies that further explain concepts and theory Exercises and examples honed through the author’s twelve years of teaching about networking Overall, readers will find a thorough design and performance evaluation that provides a foundation for developing the ability to analyze and simulate complex communication networks.
This cutting-edge book shows you how SIP provides a highly-scalable and cost-effective way to offer new and exciting telecommunication feature sets, helping you design your OC next generationOCO network and develop new applications and software stacks. Other key discussions include SIP as a key component in the Internet multimedia conferencing architecture, request and response messages, devices in a typical network, types of servers, SIP headers, comparisons with existing signaling protocols including H.323, related protocols SDP (Session Description Protocol) and RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol), and the future direction of SIP. Detailed call flow diagrams illustrate how this technology works with other protocols such as H.323 and ISUP. Moreover, this book covers SIP RFC 3261 and the complete set of SIP extension RFCs."
IMS Application Developer s Handbook
IMS Application Developer Handbook will give a hands-on view of exactly what needs to be done by IMS application developers to write an application and take it "live" on an operator's network. It will offer practical guidance on building innovative applications using the features and capabilities of the IMS network, show how the rapidly changing development environment is impacting on the business models employed in the industry and how existing network solutions can be moved towards IMS. The book will also elaborate on how IMS applies basic VoIP principles and techniques to realise a true multi-access, multimedia network. The Handbook demonstrates how the IMS architecture and protocols are applied to multimedia services from a "hands-on" perspective, ensuring that developers know how to use the IMS most effectively for their chosen application. Clear, concise and comprehensive view of the IMS and Rich Communication Suite (RCS) for developers. Written by established experts in the IMS services layer, who have been involved in many customer projects for the implementation of fixed mobile converged IMS network and service. Covers potential service and operator scenarios for the IMS architecture; it is significantly more than merely a description of the IMS standards.
3G Wireless Networks
Real-world instruction in the design and deployment of 3G networks Pin down the technical details that make 3G wireless networking actually work. In 3G Wireless Networks, experts Clint Smith and Daniel Collins dissect critical issues of compatibility, internetworking, and voice/data convergence, providing you with in-depth explanations of how key standards and protocols intersect and interconnect. This guide digs into the gritty details of day-to-day network operations, giving you a chance to understand the difficulties service providers will experience in making the changeover from 2nd Generation systems (CDMS etc.) to 2.5 Generation systems like WAP and EDGE and finally to full throttle 3G networks. It describes key standards, digs deep into the guts of relevant network protocols, and details the full range of compatibility issues between the US (CDMA 2000) and European (WCDMA) versions of the standard. Plenty of call flow diagrams show you exactly how the technologies work.
