This book introduce a new generation of Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS) for modern Enterprise Architectures.

Smart SOA Platforms in Cloud Computing Architectures

Integration Platform as a Service

This book is intended to introduce the principles of Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing paradigms and how they provide a new generation of Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS) for modern Enterprise Architectures.

Advanced Transport Protocols: Designing the Next Generation

Advanced Transport Protocols

This book proposes a model-driven methodology and a service-oriented approach aimed at designing the mechanisms, functions, protocols and services of the next generation transport layer. This approach can be applied to design other kind of complex distributed systems.

Digital Home Networking

Digital Home Networking

This books provides a state-of-the-art of digital home standards and protocols, as well as in-depth coverage of service architectures for entertainment and domotic services involving digital home resources. Topics include networking, remote access, security, interoperability, scalability, and quality of service. In particular, the book describes the generic architecture that was proposed and developed in the context of the EUREKA/Celtic research project Feel@Home
