Research and Markets: 802.1aq Shortest Path Bridging Design and Evolution: The Architect's Perspective Facilitates both the Understanding and Adoption of 802.1aq as a Networking Solution

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "802.1aq Shortest Path Bridging Design and Evolution: The Architect's Perspective" to their offering.

802.1aq Shortest Path Bridging (SPB) is a technology that greatly simplifies the creation and configuration of carrier, enterprise, and cloud computing networksby using modern computing power to deprecate signaling, and to integrate multicast, multipath routing, and large-scale virtualization. It is arguably one of the most significant enhancements in Ethernet's history.

802.1aq Shortest Path Bridging Design and Evolution explains both the "what" and the "why" of the technology standard being set today. It covers which

decisions were elective and which were dictated by the design goals by using a multi part approach that first explains what SPB is, before transitioning into narrative form to describe the design processes and decisions behind it.

To Make SPB Accessible to the Data Networking Professional from Multiple Perspectives, the Book:

- Provides a "Reader's Companion" to the standard

- Dissects the different elements of SPB

- Offers applications and potential futures for the technology

802.1aq Shortest Path Bridging Design and Evolution will appeal to system implementers, system and network architects, academics, IT professionals, and general networking professionals.

Key Topics Covered:

1. IEEE 802.1aq in a Nutshell: Antecedents and Technology

2. Why SPB Looks as It Does

3. Why the SPB Control Plane Looks as It Does

4. Practical Deployment Considerations

5. Applications of SPB

6. Futures
