'Internetworking of Content Delivery Networks' sets out to establish the basis for developing advanced content management and delivery solutions that are scalable, high performance, and cost-effective. It introduces techniques to enable coordination and cooperation between multiple content delivery services, which is termed as CDN peering . This book addresses five key issues ? when to peer (triggering circumstances), how to peer (interaction strategies), whom to peer with(resource discovery), how to manage and enforce operational policies (request-redirection and load sharing), and how to demonstrate peering applicability (measurement study and proof-of-concept implementation). It describes utility-based techniques for resource discovery, server selection, and request-redirection. These techniques are exercised to alleviate imbalanced load conditions, while minimizing operational cost. The developed techniques and proposed models are evaluated through discrete-event simulation analysis, as well as empirical measurement study on the global MetaCDN Content Delivery Cloud testbed (www. metacdn. com).

Configuring IPv6 with Cisco IOS provides complete coverage of IPv6 strategies, configuration scenarios, and techniques to successfully deploy an IPv6 addressing and subnetting scheme on a network. The book also covers such topics as: increasing the IP address size from 32 bits to 128 bits; supporting more levels of addressing hierarchy; supporting an increased number of addressable nodes; supporting simpler autoconfiguration of addresses; improving the scalability of multicast routing by adding a 'scope' field to multicast addresses; and using a new 'anycast address' to send a packet to any one of a group of nodes.
