The purpose of this book is to initiate the newcomer into the control of computer and wireless communication networks, one of the fastest growing fields in the engineering world. Technical concepts, which are at the core of the design, implementation, research and invention of computer network and wireless communication network control protocols, are presented in an order that is conducive to understanding general concepts, as well as those specific to particular wired, cellular, wireless ad hoc, and sensor networks.
Wireless Ad hoc and Sensor Networks: Protocols, Performance, and Control addresses the basic theory, architectures, and technologies that are necessary to implement quality of service (QoS) control in wired and wireless networks. This book provides understanding of technical concepts related to computer network and wireless Internet control protocols as well as those specific to wired, cellular, wireless ad hoc, and sensor networks. With an overview of existing QoS methods, the text describes recent advances with practical approaches for implementation in high-speed networks. Coverage also includes underlying QoS techniques developed through Lyapunov-based design with simulation examples and proofs.
