A Comprehensive, Thorough Introduction to High-Speed NetworkingTechnologies and Protocols

Network Infrastructure and Architecture: DesigningHigh-Availability Networks takes a unique approach to the subjectby covering the ideas underlying networks, the architecture of thenetwork elements, and the implementation of these elements inoptical and VLSI technologies. Additionally, it focuses on areasnot widely covered in existing books: physical transport andswitching, the process and technique of building networkinghardware, and new technologies being deployed in the marketplace, such as Metro Wave Division Multiplexing (MWDM), Resilient PacketRings (RPR), Optical Ethernet, and more.

Divided into five succinct parts, the book covers:

  • Optical transmission

  • Networking protocols

  • VLSI chips

  • Data switching

  • Networking elements and design

Complete with case studies, examples, and exercises throughout, the book is complemented with chapter goals, summaries, and listsof key points to aid readers in grasping the materialpresented.

Network Infrastructure and Architecture offers professionals, advanced undergraduates, and graduate students a fresh view onhigh-speed networking from the physical layer perspective.
