The recent trend towards the interoperability of traditionally separate networks, such as terrestrial, wireless/cellular, and satellite, for the support of multimedia applications poses new and significantly challenging problems to network design. This book reports on the state-of-the-art work developed during the four years of operation of COST Action 279, Analysis and Design of Advanced Multiservice Networks Supporting Mobility, Multimedia, and Internet-networking, by its participating researchers, originating from over 40 research institutions from the academic, industrial, and applied aspects of network performance evaluation and design. The book contains a detailed account of the work developed, supported on an extensive bibliography of material published in the peer-reviewed literature. It contains the following six chapters: * IP-Based Networks * Queuing Models * Traffic Measurement, characterization, and Modelling * Wireless Networks * Optical Networks * Peer-to-Peer services The book will appeal to both practitioners of network design, and to researchers to map future directions in networking research.
