Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), has emulated the simplicity of the protocol architecture of hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) and is being popularized for VoIP over the Internet because of the ease with which it can be meshed with web services. However, it is difficult to know exactly how many requests for comments (RFCs) have been published over the last two decades in regards to SIP or how those RFCs are interrelated. Handbook on Session Initiation Protocol: Networked Multimedia Communications for IP Telephony solves that problem. It is the first book to put together all SIP-related RFCs, with their mandatory and optional texts, in a chronological and systematic way so that it can be used as a single super-SIP RFC with an almost one-to-one integrity from beginning to end, allowing you to see the big picture of SIP for the basic SIP functionalities. It is a book that network designers, software developers, product manufacturers, implementers, interoperability testers, professionals, professors, and researchers will find to be very useful. The text of each RFC from the IETF has been reviewed by all members of a given working group made up of world-renowned experts, and a rough consensus made on which parts of the drafts need to be mandatory and optional, including whether an RFC needs to be Standards Track, Informational, or Experimental. Texts, ABNF syntaxes, figures, tables, and references are included in their original form. All RFCs, along with their authors, are provided as references. The book is organized into twenty chapters based on the major functionalities, features, and capabilities of SIP.

This book approaches the topic area of the Internet of Things (IoT) from the perspective of the five types of human communication. Through this perspective on the human communication types, the book aims to specifically address how IoT technologies can support humans and their endeavors. The book explores the fields of sensors, wireless, physiology, biology, wearables, and the Internet. This book is organized with five sections, each covering a central theme; Section 1: The basics of human bond communication Section 2: Relevance IoT, BAN and PAN Section 3: Applications of HBC Section 4: Security, Privacy and Regulatory Challenges Section 5: The Big Picture (Where do we go from here?)

Spectrum Sharing in Wireless Networks: Fairness, Efficiency, and Security provides a broad overview of wireless network spectrum sharing in seven distinct sections: The first section examines the big picture and basic principles, explaining the concepts of spectrum sharing, hardware/software function requirements for efficient sharing, and future trends of sharing strategies. The second section contains more than 10 chapters that discuss differing approaches to efficient spectrum sharing. The authors introduce a new coexistence and sharing scheme for multi-hop networks, describe the space-time sharing concept, introduce LTE-U, and examine sharing in broadcast and unicast environments. They then talk about different cooperation strategies to achieve mutual benefits for primary users (PU) and secondary users (SU), discuss protocols in a spectrum sharing context, and provide different game theory models between PUs and SUs. The third section explains how to model the interactions of PUs and SUs, using an efficient calculation method to determine spectrum availability. Additionally, this section explains how to use scheduling models to achieve efficient SU traffic delivery. The subject of the fourth section is MIMO-oriented design. It focuses on how directional antennas and MIMO antennas greatly enhance wireless network performance. The authors include a few chapters on capacity/rate calculations as well as beamforming issues under MIMO antennas. Power control is covered in the fifth section which also describes the interference-aware power allocation schemes among cognitive radio users and the power control schemes in cognitive radios. The sixth section provides a comprehensive look at security issues, including different types of spectrum sharing attacks and threats as well as corresponding countermeasure schemes. The seventh and final section covers issues pertaining to military applications and examines how the military task protects its data flows when sharing the spectrum with civilian applications.

Wie werden wir leben – in 20, 60, 100 Jahren? Star-Physiker Michio Kaku sagt der Menschheit eine rosige Zukunft voraus. Roboter werden uns die Alltagsarbeit abnehmen. Küchengeräte und andere Maschinen steuern wir mit der Kraft unserer Gedanken. Medizinische Nanobots werden aufmerksam durch unsere Blut- und Nervenbahnen eilen und sogar Krebs heilen. Zu lästigen Meetings schicken wir unser Hologramm – an einen Konferenztisch mit virtuellen Menschen und solchen aus Fleisch und Blut. Informationen können direkt über die Retina ins Kleinhirn projiziert werden. Wir beherrschen auch das Wetter, und Nationalstaaten spielen kaum noch eine Rolle. Trotzdem werden wir weiter reisen, uns treffen, Sport treiben und in die Kneipe gehen, weil Menschen nun mal so sind. Science-Fiction? Nein, seriöse Zukunftsforschung. Eingängig beschreibt Michio Kaku, wie der Weg in diese Zukunft aussieht – denn vieles davon wird heute schon in Wissenschaft und Industrie vorbereitet. Kaku hat weltweit 300 Forscher von Rang befragt, wie die gesellschaftlich-technische Entwicklung ihrer Voraussicht nach verlaufen wird: von der Künstlichen Intelligenz bis zur Raumfahrt, von der Medizin und Biologie bis zur Nanotechnologie. Und er präsentiert seine Befunde überzeugend und mit leichter Hand. «Was für ein wunderbares Abenteuer ist dies, der Versuch, das Undenkbare zu denken.» (New York Times Book Review) «Atemberaubend.» (Welt am Sonntag)

Die sogenannte vierte industrielle Revolution, die mit dem Schlagwort "Industrie 4.0" einen klangvollen Markennamen erhalten hat, soll durch die umfassende Digitalisierung und Informatisierung der Fertigung geradezu spektakulare Veranderungen der industriellen Produktion bewirken - so wird prognostiziert. Einerseits weist die Debatte hierum alle Merkmale eines "Hypes" auf. Andererseits aber verbinden sich mit diesem Schlagwort reale Entwicklungsperspektiven, deren langfristige Konsequenzen fur Qualifikation und Arbeit derzeit nur schwer abzusehen sind. In diesem Buch unternehmen namhafte Experten aus den Sozial- und den Ingenieurwissenschaften den Versuch, eine erste fundierte Einschatzung uber die moglichen Konsequenzen von Industrie 4.0 fur Industriearbeit zu geben. Die Beitrage fragen nach den Anwendungsfeldern und Einsatzbereichen digitaler Technologien, nach den Alternativen der Arbeitsgestaltung und nach gesellschaftlichen Entwicklungsperspektiven. Ihr gemeinsamer Ausgangspunkt ist eine ganzheitliche Sicht auf die neuen Technologien, die sich auf das sozio-technische Gesamtsystem der Produktion im Kontext gesellschaftlicher Bedingungen richtet.
