The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'IPng and the TCP/IP Protocols: Implementing the Next Generation Internet':

Reviewer amazon.com wrote:
Thomas provides a complete description of the next generation of the Internet Protocols for computer and software engineers. Detailed coverage begins with discussion of Fast Ethernet, ISDN, and ATM LAN Emulation. The rest of the book is packed with thorough descriptions of IPv6, the new ICMP, up-to-date coverage of transport, routing, configuration, and name service protocols. Of special note are chapters on TCP/IP real-time support essential to multimedia networking for audio and video, such as RTP and RSVP. Recommended reading for informed networking!
Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
This book; fully, clearly and usably; explains the coming changes in the TCP/IP protocols. The reasons for the changes are explained, and the individual protocols are explained and diagrammed. From my perspective, the beauty of the text lies in the fact that it is suitable for almost any audience. Thomas starts without any requirement for a technical background on the part of the reader, and lucidly explains concepts, uses, and low level details. The Internet user can find out how new IP addresses will be specified. The manager is given advice and information on migrating from current IP implementations to the next generation. The developer is warned that IPng is still in flux, but can start seeing the fields and forms that will make up the new protocols, as well as the potential for new functions and applications. Recommended for anyone who *must* understand the new technology, and for those who simply want to. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1996

IPng and the TCP/IP Protocols gives computer and software engineers a complete description of the IPng or next generation Internet protocols, as well as the technical information key to its successful implementation. Detailed coverage begins with the latest network technologies, including Fast Ethernet, ISDN, and ATM LAN Emulation. The text continues with a thorough description of IPv6 and the new ICMP, as well as comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of transport, routing, configuration, and name service protocols. This book also contains the first detailed description of TCP/IP's real-time support, with chapters on RTP and RSVP. In addition, this invaluable reference previews future applications such as audio and video conferencing over the Internet, and it outlines the steps in a successful transition to IPng.
