Advanced Communication Protocol Technologies

Book Description

The rapid improvements brought about by modern telecommunications are made possible by unfettered transmission of information, which relies on the ability to send, receive and properly utilize communication. Advanced Communication Protocol Technologies: Solutions, Methods, and Applications explores the complications and solutions created by communication required between ever-expanding technologies. The research in this book encompasses the fundamentals of protocol functions and protocol operations, the controlling protocols of ISDN and mobile networks, the evolution of IP-based protocols, and advanced solutions for routing, mobility and multimedia transmission. Finally, this book addresses the various special applications in this ever important field.
