The Internet is huge, useful and efficient. And, as with any such entity, it turns out not to be huge, useful and efficient enough. The Internet will allow more addresses than there are computers on the planet: therefore there is a desire to have enough addresses so that each individual on the planet can have a few dozen. The Internet can accommodate any type of data application: therefore there is a desire to run real time applications such as voice and video. The Internet makes the most effective use of multiple data channels between any two points: therefore there is a desire for effective use of all channels and points simultaneously. Internet applications rely on services provided by the current (IPv4) foundational Internet pro... Rest of this review on the detail page

Voice communications over the Internet--particularly the direct, sender-initiated kind--haven't yet taken off, but lots of smart people say Internet telephony is going to be huge before long. In IP Telephony, three experts on getting voice signals from here to there, intact, via Internet Protocol (IP) networks hold forth on the state of the art. Like Voice over IP (VoIP) itself, their discussion is largely academic. Rather than show how to implement VoIP with any of the tools available for that purpose, the authors put most of their effort into elaborating on the specifications that govern (or at least aspire to govern) Internet telephony.

Book description
With the Internet doubling in size every 10 to 12 months and the market increasingly demanding live audio and video transmission over the Internet, the Internet Engineering Task Force has defined a new and much more robust Internet Protocol-IPv6 - to cope with these mounting user volume and traffic demands. This first-of-its-kind guide to IPv6 provides network professionals with comprehensive, accessible information on IPv6 theory, applications, configuration and vendor offerings, along with valuable hands-on practical examples of how to manage the IPv6 intranet address space, design an intranet routing hierarchy, set up and manage an IPv6 security system, and migrate existing applications and network services to IPv6.
