Smart objects are small computers embedded in objects such as car engines, thermostats, and machinery. They are typically made up of three components: a CPU, memory, and a low-power communication device. The size is small and the price is low. During the past 5+ years, many proprietary protocols and architectures have been developed that have allowed smart computing to become a reality. IP is radically and rapidly changing the situation - this book explains the how and why of it. The many technological aspects of wireless sensing technology (operating systems, networking protocols, etc.) are covered before concluding with coverage devoted to the major applications of smart computing, i.e., smart grid (energy management, etc.), industrial automation, smart cities and urban networks, building and home automation, structural system health (buildings, bridges, etc.), and other machine-to-machine traffic sensing.
An Independent and New Statesman Book of the Year Beyond the familiar online world that most of us inhabit-a world of Google, Facebook, and Twitter-lies a vast and often hidden network of sites, communities, and cultures where freedom is pushed to its limits, and where people can be anyone, or do anything, they want. This is the world of Bitcoin and Silk Road, of radicalism and pornography. This is the Dark Net. In this important and revealing book, Jamie Bartlett takes us deep into the digital underworld and presents an extraordinary look at the internet we don´t know. Beginning with the rise of the internet and the conflicts and battles that defined its early years, Bartlett reports on trolls, pornographers, drug dealers, hackers, political extremists, Bitcoin programmers, and vigilantes-and puts a human face on those who have many reasons to stay anonymous. Rich with historical research and revelatory reporting, The Dark Net is an unprecedented, eye-opening look at a world that doesn´t want to be known.

The IS-IS routing protocol has gone through a high-speed evolution in recent years. Today, it is a widely deployed protocol even at smaller ISPs but because of its quick ascent it has been sparsely documented and seldom understood. As service providers add multivendor platforms from both Cisco and Juniper Networks, it is increasingly difficult to get a complete picture of the IS-IS that is actually deployed in the field. Only a book such as The Complete IS-IS Routing Protocol can provide the insight and practical solutions needed because it takes a multivendor, real-world competitive approach to implement IS-IS. The Complete IS-IS Routing Protocol is written by one of the leading authorities on IS-IS routing, Hannes Gredler, who specializes in IS-IS solutions for Juniper Networks in Europe. Hannes´ co-author is the networking book veteran, Walter Goralski, whose name attracts readers across the world for his frank, lucid prose.
