Dynamic Routing in Broadband Networks / Edition 1 available in Hardcover

Dynamic routing of circuit-switched connections in telephone networks have been evolving since the 1980s, and such switching drives the Internet. "Dynamic" refers to the fact that the routing process continuously scans the newest information on the network load to find a path with the required parameters. Following an overview of network architectures and dynamic routing schemes, the author treats the basics of Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) and Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MLPS) with a particular focus on ATM, application of Markov decision processes to routing, and simulations and a solution of the multirate routing problem. Dr. Marco is employed by the space business division of Siemens, who supported this European Space Agency-contracted work completed at the Vienna U. of Technology. Annotation c.
