High Performance Switches And Routers

This book focuses on the subsystems and devices on the data plane. There is a brief introduction to IP network management to familiarize readers with how the network is managed, as many routers are interconnected together. The book starts with an introduction to today's and tomorrow's networks, the router architectures and their building blocks, examples of commercial high-end routers, and the challenging issues of designing high-performance high-speed routers. A distinction of this book is that we provide as many figures as possible to explain the concepts. Readers are encouraged to first scan through the figures and try to understand them before reading the text. If fully understood, readers can skip to the text to save time. However, the text is written in such a way as to talk the readers through the figures.
