    Supplying a comprehensive introduction to next-generation networks, Building Next-Generation Converged Networks: Theory and Practice strikes a balance between how and why things work and how to make them work. It compiles recent advancements along with basic issues from the wide range of fields related to next generation networks.

    Containing the contributions of 56 industry experts and researchers from 16 different countries, the book presents relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest research. It investigates new technologies such as IPv6 over Low Power Wireless Personal Area Network (6LoWPAN) architectures, standards, mobility, and security. Presenting the material in a manner that entry-level readers can easily grasp the fundamentals, the book is organized into five parts:

    1. Multimedia Streaming—deals with multimedia streaming in networks of the future—from basics to more in-depth information for the experts
    2. Safety and Security in Networks—addresses the issues related to security, including fundamental Internet and cyber-security concepts that will be relevant in any future network
    3. Network Management and Traffic Engineering—includes coverage of mathematical modeling-based works
    4. Information Infrastructure and Cloud Computing—integrates information about past achievements, present conditions, and future expectations in information infrastructure-related areas
    5. Wireless Networking—touches on the various aspects of wireless networks and technologies

    The text includes coverage of Internet architectures and protocols, embedded systems and sensor networks, web services, Cloud technologies, and next-generation wireless networking. Reporting on the latest advancements in the field, it provides you with the understanding required to contribute towards the materialization of future networks. This book is suitable for graduate students, researchers, academics, industry practitioners working in the area of wired or wireless networking, and basically anyone who wants to improve his or her understanding of the topics related to next-generation networks.
