Description

Multimedia Communications by Fred Halsall addresses the main subject areas associated with multimedia communications (applications, networks, protocols, and standards) at a level that enables the reader to develop an in-depth understanding of the technical issues associated with this rapidly evolving subject. The book identifies the different types of multimedia applications, quantifies their communication requirements and describes the operation and protocols of the different kinds of networks that are used to support them. These networks include LANs, the Internet and World Wide Web, and home-entertainment networks such as cable and satellite.

Multimedia Communications is an updated approach to the author's Data Communications, Computer Networks and Open Systems: Fourth Edition set in the context of the increasingly important area of multimedia. It is appropriate for both Computer Science and Electronic Engineering departments.
