Designing efficient IP networks and maintaining them effectively poses a range of challenges, but in this highly competitive industry it is crucial that these are overcome. Weaving together theory and practice, this text sets out the design and management principles of large-scale IP networks, and the need for these tasks to be underpinned by actual measurements. Discussions of the types of measurements available in IP networks are included, along with the ways in which they can assist both in the design phase as well as in the monitoring and management of IP applications. Other topics covered include IP network design, traffic engineering, network and service management and security. A valuable resource for graduate students and researchers in electrical and computer engineering and computer science, this is also an excellent reference for network designers and operators in the communication industry.
