Network Design and Analysis, Illustrated (Hardback)Richard Tibbs (author)
- Out of stock
* An open source lab project - Givesstudents and instructors hands-on experience by dealing directly with the routing protocols that ISPs use.
- For universities on tight budgets, open source projects are cost-free.
* Practical optimization methods using a graduated approach - Uses programming exercises that incrementally build the elements of a small-scale network design capability.
* Valuable hands-on laboratory exercises:
- Uses a free open-source utility, quagga (www.quagga.net) that implements all the typical routing protocols that Internet Service Providers use. Several commercial ISPs are using this software in Linux routers.
- Enhances students' abilities to obtain jobs and grounds them in the principles of routing protocols.
* Comparison of formal optimization with heuristics.
* Second order statistics made accessible to senior undergrads - Gives students an excellent background on the most important methods to deal with traffic characterization.
* Approximately 20 multiple choice, five pencil & paper exercises, five hands-on programming projects, and a case study for each chapter.
* Powerpoints produced by the authors.
* Solutions to all problems and hands-on exercises and lab projects.
