Quality of Service in IP Networks Summary

Quality of Service in IP Networks by Grenville Armitage

Quality of Service is a fast growing area of technology, being driven by the growth of real-time applications such as voice over IP. This book is perfect for you, technical professionals who are looking for information building blocks of Quality of Service and who want to grasp critical concepts such as the DiffServ and IntServ models and the use of MPLS to support the next generation of VPNs. If you are a Network architect, network engineer, or network designer, you will be using the authoritative guide to understand the different emerging technologies that can be used to archive Quality of Service, and to decide how to incorporate them into your networks and meet the needs of your particular network environment. Quality of Service in IP Networks presents a great deal of technical detail, as well as provides a clear understanding of the architectural issues surrounding delivering QoS in an IP network, and its positions in the emerging technologies within a framework of solutions.

About Grenville Armitage

Grenville Armitage has been involved in IP- and ATM-related research for the past nine years. Grenville is an active member of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and has co-authored several protocols and standards documents in the area. For the past few years, he has been focusing on IP over ATM, IP multicast, IPv6, Integrated Services, Differentiated Services, and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) issues and protocol development. He was a senior scientist in the Internetworking Research Group at Bellcore before moving to the High Speed Networks Research department at Bell Labs Research (Lucent Technologies) in 1997. In the past two years, he has also traveled internationally, giving talks to customers and general audiences on the latest QoS and MPLS solutions. Grenville received his bachelor and Ph.D. degrees in electronic engineering from the University of Melbourne, Australia. He now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and has a weakness for social activities involving beer and/or pool. He has been known to hit tennis balls (poorly), roller-blade (once breaking his arm), and play volleyball (before having a beer). The guitars in his closet haven't been used in years. These reviewers contributed their considerable practical, hands-on expertise to the entire development process for Quality of Service in IP Networks. As the book was being written, these dedicated professionals reviewed all the material for technical content, organization, and flow. Their feedback was critical to ensuring that Quality of Service in IP Networks fits our reader's need for the highest quality technical information. Ken Carlberg has been involved in the design and development of computer networks for the past 15 years. The first five years involved developing embedded software for U.S. Department of Defense networks. For the last 10 years, he has led research efforts and developed designs and prototypes for networks and protocols involving routing, multicast, mobility, and QoS. Most of this work was done as a principal investigator for U.S. agencies such as the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). In addition, he has conducted internal research for Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), of which he is an employee. Ken has also been involved with various working groups of the IETF since 1990. Ken received his Ph.D. in computer science, focusing on QoS Multicast, from University College London and received earlier degrees of BSc and MSc from Loyola College in Baltimore, Maryland. He currently lives in northern Virginia and always looks forward to being with his family in Baltimore and Chile. Bryan Gleeson has 16 years of experience as a software engineer in the computer networking industry. He received a BAI degree in computer engineering and a BA degree in mathematics from Trinity College Dublin in Ireland. He started his career by developing a file transfer protocol for the National Research Network, and later projects included the development of a number of X.25, X.400, email, and satellite communication products. After four years, Bryan moved to Silicon Valley where he continued to work on the implementation of ISO protocols and the design of specialized transport protocols. Later he led the design and implementation of products for wide-area wireless mobile computing and for enterprise ATM networks. After joining Cisco Systems, he worked on the design and development of next-generation enterprise routers and ATM products. He was a frequent contributor to the ATM Forum, where he helped develop the LANE and MPOA protocol specifications. Bryan was one of the early engineers at Shasta Networks, a start-up developer of a new type of carrier-class Internet product that enables the large-scale deployment of networking services for broadband subscribers. He currently works for Nortel Networks on the design and implementation of new types of VPNs on the Shasta platform. Bryan holds a number of patents in the networking software area and is also active in the IETF, where he developed a general framework and architecture for VPNs. He lives in Cupertino, California, and enjoys music, travel, motor racing, and playing at being a sound-recording engineer.
