This book covers at an advanced level mathematical methods for analysis of telecommunication networks. The book concentrates on various call models used in telecommunications such as quality of service (QoS) in packet switched Internet Protocol (IP) networks, Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), and Time Division Multiplexing (TDM). Professionals, researchers, and graduate and advanced undergraduate students of telecommunications will benefit from this invaluable guidebook. An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available online from the Wiley editorial department. An Instructor Support FTP site is also available.
