Rouskas Co-Edits Book on the Next-Generation Internet

Congratulations to Dr. George Rouskas, professor of computer science at NC State University, for having his book entitled Next-Generation Internet: Architectures and Protocols published by Cambridge University Press.

Combining contributions from experts in the field, this book captures the most recent and innovative designs, architectures, protocols and mechanisms that will enable researchers to successfully build the next-generation Internet. A broad perspective is provided, with topics including innovations at the physical/transmission layers in wired and wireless media, as well as the support for new switching and routing paradigms at the device and sub-system layer.  The proposed alternatives to TCP and UDP at the data transport layer for emerging environments are also covered, as are the novel models and theoretical foundations proposed for understanding network complexity.  Finally, new approaches for pricing and network economics are discussed, making this ideal for students, researchers, and practitioners who need to know about designing, constructing, and operating the next-generation Internet.
Rouskas co-edited the book with Byrav Ramamurthy, associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Krishna Moorthy Sivalingam, professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Indian Institute of Technology.
