Format: Hardcover
With a networking backgroud, I was interested in learning about the basics of Active Networks. I picked up this book in an attempt to dive into the subject, and I am glad that I did.
This book covers all of the basics, properties and priciples of Active Networks. It goes on to discuss the theory behind the network management aspects of an Active Network. A topic that I've not found covered in any other books that I've searched for.
The included CD also gives all the source code you'll need to set up and implement some of the topics that are discussed in the book.
All in all it's a good read and definitly worth being on my bookshelf!

Format: Hardcover
Drs. Bush and Kulkarni are two preeminent network scientists at the General Electric Research Center. Their book is a triumph and a boon for all of us working in networks and allied disciplines. The field of active networks continues to gain in importance and cabins a new dimension in network thought. Their book accomplishes both a thorough and scholarly review of the subject and also gently instructs. The latter includes exercises at chapters' ends and a CDROM. An excellent piece of work that I expect may become a classic.

More About the Author

I enjoy writing technical books that do not shy away from going deep into difficult (and sometimes controversial) technical issues while also keeping the reader engaged and motivated with the exciting concepts and benefits that these technologies enable when taken to their limit. Innovation, imagination, and creativity are some of the most highly-valued characteristics in industry and I strive to include these throughout my writing. Whether used as textbooks in the classroom or as a source of ideas for the researcher, if they excite one person to explore a new area or provide a new way of looking at an old problem and thereby change the world, it would be wonderful.

These books are interrelated and address timeless questions such as:
1) Can communication packets become "intelligent" and autonomous? Could communication benefit from swarm-like activity of such autonomous packets?
2) What would happen if an Internet existed at the nanoscale? What would an "in vivo" Internet look like and how would it benefit medicine?
3) What are the most fundamental relationships among information, energy, and communication? How efficient could the power grid become with embedded intelligence? What are some of the new, unique applications that become possible?
