With the rapid appearance of new protocols, standards, and tools, it becomes increasingly difficult - and increasingly important - for communications professionals to remain up-to-date on new and emerging technologies. The Handbook of Communications Technologies: The Next Decade fills this gap. Until now, information on many of its topics, such as Multiprotocol over ATM, IPMulticasting, and RSVP, existed only as fragmented articles on the Internet or as complex feature specifications. In this landmark volume, 18 leading authorities each tackle one of the cutting edge technologies destined to shape the future. Each chapter describes a technology and any standards on which it is based, discusses its impact on the communications field and forecasts its future direction. Developed primarily for telecommunications specialists network managers, developers, and analysts, The Handbook of Communications Technologies: The Next Decade, offers the opportunity to acquire a deeper understanding of future technologies necessary to remaining current, and serves as a valuable reference guide for corporate executives, planners, and information managers - anyone seeking general knowledge about where the communications industry is heading.
