Future Network Trends

  • William J. Barksdale
Part of the Applications of Communications Theory book series (ACTH)


In each of the dozen preceding chapters we focused on one particular aspect of Practical Computer Data Communications. Looking back, it should now be apparent that these topics are by no means isolated but rather fit together to give a coherent picture of data networks, much like the tiles of a mosaic. We have studied essentially all of the key technical aspects of modern data networks as they exist today: how they evolved, how they are designed, how they operate, and how they can be used.
