Network Processors: Architectures, Protocols, and Platforms
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungRevolutionary network processors are already making sweeping changes in the network design field. Microchips optimized for high-speed communications, they impact everything from switching to security. These programmable chip sets are being rolled out with great fanfare by Intel, IBM, Motorola, Agere and others, but network designers and analysts know very little about them. This book is a very practical education in what these products look like under the hood and how to make the most of them.-- How NP architectures differ from CPUs (Central Processing Units)-- How to analyze protocols, platforms and market forces-- How to plan for a new generation of chips, routers and switches
