IP technology has progressed from being a scientific topic to being one of the most popular technologies in networking. Concurrently, a number of new innovations and technological advances have been developed and brought to the marketplace. These new ideas, concepts, and products are likely to have a tremendous influence on businesses and on our everyday lives. This book addresses many of these newer technological developments and provides insights for engineers and scientists developing new technological components, devices and products. Internet Protocols (IP) covers many of the newer internet technologies being developed and explores how they are being implemented in the real world. The author examines numerous implementation details related to IP equipment and software. The material is organized by applications so that readers can better understand the uses of IP technology. Included are details of implementation issues as well as several state-of-the-art equipment and software. Unique features include coverage of:
-VPN's, IKE, Mobile IP, 802.11b, 802.1x, 3G, Bluetooth, Zero-Conf, SLP, AAA, iFCP, SCTP, GSM, GPRS, CDMA2000, IPv6, DNSv6, MPLS and more. -Actual implementation strategies for routers through descriptions of Cisco 12410 GSR and Juniper M160. -IP software stack details are also included for several popular operating systems such as Windows, BSD, VxWorks and Linux. Internet Protocols will be an invaluable reference work for software engineers, hardware engineers, systems engineers and other professionals working in networking and telecommunications.
