On Order



The Best of the Best: Fifty Years of Communications andNetworking Research consists of a group of 50 papers selectedas the best published by ComSoc in its various journals in theSociety?s 50-year history. The editors of the collection havewritten an essay to introduce the papers and discuss the historicalsignificance of the collection and how they were selected for thecollection.

The book divides the papers into two major categories(Communications and Networking) and groups them by decade withinthese major subdivisions.

Author Notes

Founded in 1952, the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) is a community comprised of a diverse group of industry professionals with a common interest in advancing all communications technologies. To that end, the Society sponsors publications, conferences, educational programs, local activities, and technical committees that: Foster original work in all aspects of communications science, engineering, and technology; Encourage the development of applications that use signals to transfer voice, data, image, and/or video information between locations; Promote the theory and use of systems involving all types of terminals, computers, and information processors; all pertinent systems and operations that facilitate transfer; all transmission media; switched and unswitched networks; and network layouts, protocols, architectures, and implementations; And strongly advance developments toward meeting new market demands in systems, products, and technologies such as personal communications services, multimedia communications systems, enterprise networks, and optical communications systems.
