    Are you a senior undergraduate or graduate student in both compu

    Are you a senior undergraduate or graduate student in both computer science and electrical and computer engineering who is specializing in networking? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Mani Subramanian has done an outstanding job of writing a 2nd edition of book that brings new technologies and services to undergraduate and graduate classrooms in the broad arena of what is known as network management.

    Author Subramanian, begins by demonstrating the necessity of network system and service management in providing information technology services. Then, the author covers Internet-based components and some of the telecommunication components. He also introduces you to the technical foundations on standards, models and language, which are needed to build network management based on various standards. He continues by covering the organization and information models of SNMP in network management. Then, the author delves more deeply into the SNMP communication protocol. He then addresses SNMPv2. Next, the author covers security and privacy; as well as, generalized SNMP architecture and applications, which are part of SNMPv3 specifications. He also reviews remote monitoring of network components using probes and sending only relevant data to the network management system, thus being the goal of RMON. The author continues by looking at networking tools, management tools, and management systems. Then, he takes network management to a higher level, by looking at TMN, which is based on the OSI model. Next, the author focuses on applications. He also covers the treatment and influence of ATM, MPLS, and SONET/SDH/DWDM on the WAN segment of broadband network. The author continues by discussing management considerations of access networks. Then, he addresses why other alternatives to bring broadband to home are fixed; as well as, mobile wireless access networks. Next, the author discusses Home Networking. Finally, he discusses the evolution of network management technologies to the current and future ones.

    This most excellent book covers management principles, practices and technologies for managing networks, systems, applications and services. More importantly, this book is designed to be self-contained, so that the student does not have to traverse in and out.
