As the volume of global Internet traffic increases, the Internet is beginning to suffer from a broad spectrum of performance-degrading infrastructural limitations that threaten to jeopardize the continued growth of new, innovative services. In answer to this challenge, computer scientists seek to maintain the original design principles of the Internet while allowing for a more dynamic approach to the manner in which networks are designed and operated.
The Handbook of Research on Redesigning the Future of Internet Architectures covers some of the hottest topics currently being debated by the Internet community at large, including Internet governance, privacy issues, service delivery automation, advanced networking schemes, and new approaches to Internet traffic-forwarding and path-computation mechanics. Targeting students, network-engineers, and technical strategists, this book seeks to provide a broad and comprehensive look at the next wave of revolutionary ideas poised to reshape the very foundation of the Internet as we know it.
Reviews and Testimonials
Computer and information scientists mostly from Europe but also Asia survey some of the challenges facing the future of the Internet, and some proposed approaches for changing its architecture to meet those challenges. They cover Internet governance, regulatory aspects, and privacy considerations; novel networking approaches; advanced transport techniques and traffic forwarding and routing schemes; new approaches to (automated) network services design, delivery, and operation; and advanced service delivery solutions.
