Comprehensive coverage explaining the correlation and synergy between Next Generation Networks and the existing standardized technologies
This book focuses on Next Generation Networks (NGN); in particular, on NGN architectures, protocols and services, including technologies, regulation and business aspects. NGN provides convergence between the traditional telecommunications and the Internet, and it is globally standardized by the ITU (International Telecommunication Union), where ITU is the United Nations specialized agency for Information and Communication Technologies – ICTs. The convergence towards the NGN is based on the Internet technologies, and the introductory chapters cover the Internet fundamentals of today, including architectures, protocols (IPv4, IPv6, TCP, DNS, etc.), Internet services (WWW, e-mail, BitTorrent, Skype, and more), as well as Internet governance. Further, the prerequisite for convergence of all ICT services over single network architectures is broadband access to the Internet. Hence, the book includes architectures of fixed broadband Internet access networks, such as DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) networks, cable networks, FTTH (Fiber To The Home), next generation passive and active optical networks, and metro Ethernet. It also covers network architectures for next generation (4G) mobile and wireless networks (LTE/LTE-Advanced, and Mobile WiMAX 2.0), then Fixed Mobile Convergence - FMC, next generation mobile services, as well as business and regulatory aspects for next generation mobile networks and services.
- Comprehensive coverage explaining the correlation and synergy between Next Generation Networks and the existing standardized technologies
- Focuses on Next Generation Networks (NGN) as defined by the ITU, including performance, service architectures and mechanisms, common IMS (IP Multimedia Subsystem), control and signalling protocols used in NGN, security approaches, identity management, NGN Service Overlay Networks, and NGN business models
- Examines the most important NGN services, including QoS-enabled VoIP, IPTV over NGN, web services in NGN, peer-to-peer services, Ubiquitous Sensor Network (USN) services, VPN services in NGN, Internet of things and web of things
- Includes the transition towards NGN from the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Networks) and from the best-effort Internet via the same Internet access
- Explores advanced topics such as IPv6-based NGN, network virtualization, and future packet based networks, as well as business challenges and opportunities for the NGN evolved networks and services
Essential reading for engineers and employees from regulatory bodies, government organisations, telecommunication companies, ICT companies.
About the Authors
Toni Janevski, PhD, is a Full Professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University, Skopje, Macedonia. He received his Dipl. Ing., MSc, and PhD degrees in electrical engineering, all from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, in 1996, 1999, and 2001, respectively.
During 1996–1999 he worked for the Macedonian mobile operator Mobimak (currently T-Mobile, Macedonia), contributing to the planning, dimensioning, and implementation of the first mobile network in Macedonia. In 1999 he joined the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies in Skopje.
In 2001 he conducted research in optical communications at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, New York. During 2005–2008 he was an elected member of the Commission of the Agency for Electronic Communications (AEC) of the Republic of Macedonia, where he contributed towards the introduction of new technologies in Macedonia, such as WiMAX and 3G mobile networks, as well as new operators and services.
During the periods 2008–2012 and 2012–2016 he was an elected member of the Senate of the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje. In 2009 he established the Macedonian ITU (International Telecommunication Union) Center of Excellence (CoE) as part of the European CoE network, and has served as its head/coordinator since than. He is the author of the book titled "Traffic Analysis and Design of Wireless IP Networks," published in 2003 by Artech House Inc., Boston, USA. Also, he is the author of the book "Switching and Routing," written in the Macedonian language, published in September 2011 by the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, for which in 2012 he won the "Goce Delchev" award, the highest award for science in the Republic of Macedonia.
He has published numerous research papers and led several research and applicative projects in the area of Internet technologies and mobile and wireless networks. He is a Senior Member of IEEE. His research interests include Internet Technologies, Mobile/Wireless and Multimedia Networks and Services, Traffic Engineering, Quality of Service, Design and Modeling of Telecommunication Networks, as well as Next Generation Networks.
