The viewpoint is that communication networking is about efficient resource sharing. The focus is on the three building blocks of communication networking, namely, multiplexing, switching and routing. The approach is analytical, with the discussion being driven by mathematical analyses of and solutions to specific engineering problems.
The result? A comprehensive, effectively organized treatment of core engineering issues in communication networking. Written for both the networking professional and for the classroom, this book covers fundamental concepts in detail and places design issues in context by drawing on real world examples from current technologies.
-Systematically uses mathematical models and analyses to drive the development of a practical understanding of core network engineering problems.
-Provides in-depth coverage of many current topics, including network calculus with deterministically-constrained traffic, congestion control for elastic traffic, packet switch queuing, switching architectures, virtual path routing, and routing for quality of service.
-Includes over 200 hands-on exercises and class-tested problems, dozens of schematic figures, a review of key mathematical concepts, and a glossary.

This book combines an innovative and uniform representation of a variety of communication networks, simple to understand motivations for real design problems for these networks, intuitive approaches to solutions, and rigorous mathematical analysis where appropriate. It will be very valuable both as a textbook and as a reference for practitioners. --Bharat Doshi, Director of Transformational Communication, Johns Hopkins University, Applied Physics Laboratory It has been very difficult to write a textbook on networking that is relevant and rigorous because the field is diverse and fast changing. This book stands out in both providing the readers with the essential domain knowledge and equipping them with fundamental tools to analyze and design new systems as the networking field evolves." --Steven Low, Associate Professor, California Institute of Technology This book is a well-researched compendium of theoretical modeling applied to a number of practical networking problems. Some interesting topics of note are important insights in the design of packet switches, performance of TCP under various conditions, and the design of packet address prefix lookups. Although much of the material is mathematically advanced, the book contains a comprehensive set of appendices useful as a reference for the researcher or advanced practitioner. --Dr. David E. McDysan, Fellow, MCI Internet Architecture and Technology
