"Designed for upper level undergraduate or graduate students in network engineering and architecture, this volume presents a comprehensive examination of major features of contemporary network systems and embedded network architectures. Topics discussed include network protocols, interconnects and switching, network adapters, bridges and routers, transport and application layer systems, QoS and security, network on chip architectures and next generation Internet architecture. Chapters include numerous illustrations and tables as well as concise summaries. Serpanos is a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Petras, Greece and Wolf is a professor of computer engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst."--Book News, Reference & Research
Architecture of Network Systems explains the practice and methodologies that will allow you to solve a broad range of problems in system design, including problems related to security, quality of service, performance, manageability, and more. Leading researchers Dimitrios Serpanos and Tilman Wolf develop architectures for all network sub-systems, bridging the gap between operation and VLSI.
This book provides comprehensive coverage of the technical aspects of network systems, including system-on-chip technologies, embedded protocol processing and high-performance, and low-power design. It develops a functional approach to network system architecture based on the OSI reference model, which is useful for practitioners at every level. It also covers both fundamentals and the latest developments in network systems architecture, including network-on-chip, network processors, algorithms for lookup and classification, and network systems for the next-generation Internet.
The book is recommended for practicing engineers designing the architecture of network systems and graduate students in computer engineering and computer science studying network system design.
