About this item

Dr. William Stallings' SDN, NFV, and QoE: Foundations of Modern Networkingis a comprehensive and unified survey of modern networking technology and applications for today's technical professionals, business professionals, and students. Using the same teaching approach that has earned him 13 "Computer Science Textbook of the Year" Awards, Dr. Stallings imparts a thorough understanding of SDN technology: how it works, how it is deployed, and how enterprises of all sizes can use it to deliver superior Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE). Step by step, Stallings illuminates a wide range of crucial issues and technologies associated with modern networking in modern cloud-oriented, mobile, and big data environments. He offers complete and self-contained coverage of each technology area, helping readers gain mastery without resorting to other reference material. Coverage includes:

  • A new network paradigm: how revolutionary enterprise requirements and technologies are driving the need for complex, software-defined, QoS/QoE-aware networks
  • SDN infrastructure: concepts, technology, components, interactions, standards (including OpenFlow), evaluation, deployment, migration, and usage
  • User needs: Evolving QoS/QoE to identify customer needs, and tailoring modern networks to fully and flexibly respond (including coverage of Integrated Services Architecture (ISA), differentiates services, SLAs, IP performance metrics and QoE
  • New QoE applications: OTT, IPTV, and more
  • Modern network applications: cloud computing/services, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), and more
  • Security implications of SDN and cloud computing
  • Career-related issues: changing roles of network professionals, new skill requirements, and how to educate yourself for a career in modern networking

To promote faster learning and deeper mastery, Stallings includes chapter learning objectives, keyword lists, summaries, and review questions; a complete glossary; and QR codes throughout, linking to the book's website and other resources.
