Quality of Service is a fast growing area of technology, being driven by the growth of real-time applications such as voice over IP. This book is perfect for you, technical professionals who are looking for information building blocks of Quality of Service and who want to grasp critical concepts such as the DiffServ and IntServ models and the use of MPLS to support the next generation of VPNs. If you are a Network architect, network engineer, or network designer, you will be using the authoritative guide to understand the different emerging technologies that can be used to archive Quality of Service, and to decide how to incorporate them into your networks and meet the needs of your particular network environment. Quality of Service in IP Networks presents a great deal of technical detail, as well as provides a clear understanding of the architectural issues surrounding delivering QoS in an IP network, and its positions in the emerging technologies within a framework of solutions.
