Network Convergence: Ethernet Applications and Next Generation Packet Transport Architectures provides the guidance and solutions you'll need to understand Ethernet and emerging applications such as cloud computing and mobile apps, as well as large-scale retail and business deployments. This reference starts with an overview of the Ethernet and existing broadband architectures, including XDSL, WIMAX, and VLANs. It moves on to cover next-generation networks and mobile architectures, as well as cloud computing. The book also addresses the convergence of optical, Ethernet and IP/MPLS layers, considered to be the backbone of next-generation packet transport architecture. If you're a network designer or architect, a technical sales professional, or if you're pursuing technical certifications, you will benefit from Network Convergence's fundamental information on this rapidly evolving technology.
