 Book Description



Networks are everywhere, from the Internet to sensor networks. They are used widely for various type of communications. Their safe existence and functioning need deep consideration of different security aspects. It was the reason to combine these three topics such as Networks, Communication and Security in one book volume.


The 1st volume of new Book Series contains 15 chapters submitted by 42 contributors from academia and industry from 13 countries: Brazil, Bulgatia, Burkina Faso, China, Czech Republic, France, India, Iran, Japan, Mauritius, Senegal, UK, and USA. The book is devided into three main parts: Networks (four chapters), Security (four chapters) and Communication (seven chapters). ‘Advances in Networks, Security and Communications: Reviews’ provides focused coverage of these three main technologies. It explores practical solutions to a wide range of network, communication and security issues. Chapters are written by experts in the field and address the immediate and long-term challenges in the authors’ respective areas of expertise. Coverage includes wireless sensor network routing improvement; connectivity recovery, augmentation and routing in wireless Ad Hoc networks; advanced modeling and simulation approach for the sensor networks management; security aspects for mobile agent and cloud computing; various communication aspects (algorithms, coding and hardware design) and others.


Every chapter of this book is independent and self-contained. Fifteen chapters of the book have the similar structure: introduction, state-of-the art, description of advances and list of well selected references, including books, journal articles, conference proceedings and web sites.


This book ensures that our readers will stay at the cutting edge of the field and get the right and effective start point and road map for the further researches and developments. By this way, they will be able to save more time for productive research activity and eliminate routine work.


This book will be a valuable tool in both learning how to design various networks, as well as a reference as an advance in readers’ research careers.
