Product Description

From the Back Cover


The definitive guide to policy-based IP traffic management shows you how to guarantee the performance of mission-critical Internet applications!

To build networks that support today's mission-critical applications without breaking the bank, it's no longer enough to simply add bandwidth. You must manage it more effectively, as well. Managing Bandwidth is the first complete guide to next-generation Quality of Service (QOS) techniques for cutting costs, enhancing performance, deploying next-generation applications, handling peak loads, and maximizing the value of your enterprise network. You'll understand and compare your latest QOS options, discover workarounds for the limitations of today's standards, plan your long-term bandwidth management strategy, and more:

  • Understand various QOS approaches, including media prioritization and the Integrated Services and Differentiated Services models.
  • Deploy load-balancing and caching alternatives that mitigate server load and increase end-to-end application performance.
  • Compare the performance requirements of your applications: data, voice, video, and beyond.
  • Implement policy systems and service level agreements for scalable distribution and tracking of QOS rules.
  • Give "A-list" customers preferred access to Internet and network resources.
  • Integrate QOS with enterprise directory services such as Directory-Enabled Networks and directory access protocols like LDAP.
  • Monitor real-world network service levels in a QOS environment.
  • Learn when to "throw bandwidth at the problem" instead of worrying about QoS.

You'll also find seven real-world case studies of bandwidth-managed networks, ranging from single-site small businesses to global financial institutions.

IP QOS is a vital component of a modern network. Managing Bandwidth gives you the critical information you need to start reaping its business benefits now-before your competitors do!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair as an overview, not so good on specifics esp. DEN 18 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Don't be taken in by the "LDAP" on the cover. The sections on the use of directories for maintaining QoS policy appear to have been cobbled from other sources, are spotty in the coverage and at least a year or so old. This book will provide a basic introduction to several of the different ways of managing bandwidth, but certainly won't help with deployment of directory-enabled network policy management or services.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent QoS Overview! 17 Dec. 1999
By Michael Whalen - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is both an excellent overview and a detailed analysis of the methods and issues involved with Bandwidth Management. This is all you will need to understand this complex and broad subject. It is highly recommended.
