About this book


This important text/reference addresses the latest issues in end-to-end resilient routing in communication networks. The work highlights the main causes of failures of network nodes and links, and presents an overview of resilient routing mechanisms, covering issues related to the Future Internet (FI), wireless mesh networks (WMNs), and vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs). For each of these network architectures, a selection of novel approaches are described, followed by evaluation of their characteristics.

Topics and features:

  • Discusses FI architecture for network virtualization, examining the network resource provisioning necessary to provide network resilience
  • Introduces proposals for dedicated and shared protection in random failure scenarios and against malicious activities
  • Describes measures for WMN survivability that allow for evaluation of performance under multiple failures
  • Proposes a new scheme to enable proactive updates of WMN antenna alignment to prepare the network in advance for changing weather conditions
  • Includes a detailed analysis of the differentiated reliability requirements for VANET applications, with a focus on issues of multi‑hop data delivery
  • Reviews techniques for improving the stability of end-to-end VANET communication paths based on multipath routing and anycast forwarding

Researchers and practitioners interested in contemporary and future communication network architectures, from both academia and industry, will find this to be a must-read work on issues of end-to-end resilient routing.

Dr. Jacek Rak is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Communications at the Faculty of Electronics, Telecommunications, and Informatics of Gdansk University of Technology, Poland.
