The book “Multimedia Networking Technologies, Protocols, and Architectures” aims at providing telecommunications specialists, and professionals working with multimedia services, an in-depth and up-to-date coverage of the different technologies involved in the delivery of this type of services. The book has been written to also serve as a useful learning resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on multimedia networking.
After more than 10 years working in the field of multimedia networking, including teaching, research, engineering and standardization activities, the authors decided to create this unique practical resource, documenting and explaining in a single document the basic and advanced concepts behind multimedia networking. In this respect, the book describes the technical aspects of the main solutions, technologies, and protocols that are used in practice by service providers and telecommunication operators to support networked multimedia services.
