In Your Own Words with Mehmet Toy


When Artech House authors write their books, we ask them what they want their readers to get out of the project. In this series, we show you what our authors, in their own words, wish to impart upon readers. Mehmet Toy, author of Third Networks and Services, describes what his book is about:

It has been more than four years since the publication of Third Networks and Services by Artech House.  This book is an expanded version of Networks and Services published by J. Wiley/IEEE in 2012.  Both books are expected to be used for a long time by professionals who are working in this field and students who are learning the field.

Writing a book is perhaps equivalent to bearing and having a child.  It took me about 3 years to write Networks and Services.   Dr. Hakki Candan and I spent a year to write Third Networks and Services.  I have received compliments for both books from readers.

In recent years, I have involved in multiple areas including elastic services, APIs, cloud services, AI/ML in networking, orchestration, and edge computing services. I have published papers, delivered speeches in conferences on these topics; and led the Network203 Architecture Group in ITU-T in developing the ITU-T Network2030 Architecture Framework specification.  After the ITU-T work, I have decided to write a new book Future Networks, Services and Management with twenty-nine experts from academia and industry. This book covers future networks, applications, services, and their management  including network and service architectures, and various technologies such as AI/ML, network slicing, quantum computing, 5G and 6G. It will be published this year by Springer Publishing. I believe this book would be another good contribution to the field of computer networking.

With the new book, I have authored eight books and a video in computer networking so far. Feeling good about contributing to the field of computer networking.
