In each layer, the state-of-the-art hardware and software technologies are introduced. These include, for example, fiber-optic and mobile/cellular communications in the physical layer; wavelength/time division multiple access protocols in the data link layer; traffic shaping and policing in the network layer; ATM adaptation layer protocols in the transport layer, and finally, network security and multimedia communications in the application layer.
