Book Description

The first book that covers convergence of voice, video and data networks from a vendor-neutral perspective.

From the Back Cover

*Covers the latest standards and those being developed in an ever-evolving field
*Provides insight into the latest technology of video and data over wireless networks and how convergence will be a driving force in this industry
*Provides an understanding of the true capabilities behind each vendor's solution to allow for informed buying decisions

A recent survey of 500 U.S. companies with multiple locations found that 81% are planning to implement IP Telephony on their local area networks (LANs) in 2003, and two-thirds are looking at convergence for their wide area networks (WANs) as well. This includes voice, video and data over hard line and wireless networks.
Today, new standards and technologies are being developed to support convergence and voice over IP (VoIP) and Video over IP and wireless. Because convergence covers the voice and data world, it will be critical to understand all of these environments.

This book provides detailed information on convergence network models, protocol stacks, routing algorithms, gateways and switches required to support these networks.

Format: Paperback
This book is ideal for University applications/student use as well as for Systems Engineers (I am one) and (I'd venture to guess) even CTOs as well! It covers the latest standards as well as those currently evolving. My class at UCLA used it as a textbook a couple years back and since graduation in '07 it sits on my desk as a handy resource in the real world. I refer to it at least weekly when I'm in a bind or want to know more about a particular technology.
The previous reviewer must obviously have personal issues with the author or the publishing company - it's not legitimate as this is a well-written, easy to read, and I've found, accurate text.

I was required by a university to use this book in a class I taught on converged networks. It was very out of date. I had to do a great deal of supplementation to bring students up to speed. I don't recommend this book for up to date information in this knowledge domain.

I had to have this book for a VoIP class for my BAS degree in networking and I was not a huge fan of it. It teaches basic principles but does really not provide real world cases. This book is all best case scenarios with a perfect network, and the world is not like that at all. I would recommend another book if you are seriously looking to learn about VoIP.

Final Verdict: Not the best, but not the worst.
