Over the recent years, a considerable amount of effort has been devoted, both in industry and academia, towards the performance modelling, evaluation and prediction of convergent multi-service heterogeneous networks, such as wireless and optical networks, towards the design and dimensioning of the next and future generation Internets.

This book follows Heterogeneous Networks: Traffic Engineering, Performance Evaluation Studies and Tools and presents recent advances in networks of diverse technology reflecting the state-of-the-art technology and research achievements in performance modelling, analysis and applications worldwide.

Technical topics discussed in the book include:
  • Multiservice Switching Networks;
  • Multiservice Switching Networks;
  • Wireless Ad Hoc Networks;
  • Wireless Sensor Networks;
  • Wireless Cellular Networks;
  • Optical Networks;

Heterogeneous Networks:- Performance Modelling and Analysis contains recently extended research papers, which have their roots in the series of the HET-NETs International Working Conferences focusing on the 'Performance Modelling and Evaluation of Heterogeneous Networks' under the auspices of the EU Networks of Excellence Euro-NGI and Euro-FGI.

Heterogeneous Networks: Performance Modelling and Analysis is ideal for personnel in computer/communication industries as well as academic staff and master/research students in computer science, operational research, electrical engineering and telecommunication systems and the Internet.
