Kota (Harris Corporation, US), Pahlavan (Worcester Polytechnic U., US), and Leppanen (U. of Oulu, Finland) describe satellite technology and engineering issues important to broadband Internet communications and examine important protocols and techniques for satellite networking. They emphasize quality of service (QoS) topics not originally considered in the TCP/IP

Overview

Kota (Harris Corporation, US), Pahlavan (Worcester Polytechnic U., US), and Leppanen (U. of Oulu, Finland) describe satellite technology and engineering issues important to broadband Internet communications and examine important protocols and techniques for satellite networking. They emphasize quality of service (QoS) topics not originally considered in the TCP/IP networks. Also discussed are quantitative methods for analysis and performance measurement along the protocol stack. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
