As the speed of networks increase, users expect to deliver high bandwidth to their applications. There is much debate in the research community over the choice of protocols for these new networks. Discussion about new protocol architectures remains at center stage in the research community even as the user community continues to standardize protocols such as Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM). New transport protocols as well as resource management mechanisms are being designed to support real time multimedia applications on gigabit networks. This volume focuses on state-of-the-art protocol design and efficienct implementation techniques, interfacing high speed networks to high performance host computers and ATM as a protocol for high speed networks.
