Routing in the Internet Summary

Routing in the Internet by Christian Huitema

2264G-2 The Internet routing best-seller-now completely updated! Nobody knows more about Internet routing than Christian Huitema, former head of the Internet Architecture Board. Now, he's completely updated his classic best-seller on Internet routing to deliver the critical information that networking and software professionals need right now. Routing in the Internet, Second Edition offers unparalleled practical insight for architecting 21st century enterprise networks. You'll find all this, and more: *Internet Quality of Service (QoS) technologies, including policy routing and Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) *Extensively updated coverage of the OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) intra-company protocol *Revamped, in-depth coverage of BGPv4 for connecting enterprises to Internet Service Providers *IPv6: Rationale, goals, technical details, and key migration issues *Internet multicasting: how it works, and how you can use it today *Mobile IP: a preview of anywhere, anytime Internet connectivity PC Week called the first edition of Routing in the Internet "surprisingly approachable"; IEEE Communications called it "excellent." Communications and networking professionals worldwide will call Routing in the Internet, Second Edition absolutely indispensable.
