Today’s information networks are going through a rapid evolution. Different kinds of networks with different characteristics are emerging, and are being integrated into heterogeneous networks. As a result, there are numerous interconnection problems that can occur at different levels of the hardware and software design of communicating entities and communication networks. Such networks need to manage an increasing usage demand, provide support for a significant number of services, guarantee their QoS, and optimize the network resources.
The success of all-IP networking and wireless technology has changed the way of living for people around the globe. Advances in electronic integration and wireless communications will pave the way to offering access to wireless networks on the fly, which in turn will allow electronic devices to share information with each other wherever and whenever necessary.
