Publisher John Wiley & Sons Ltd

The IMS: IP Multimedia Concepts and Services in the Mobile Domain, Second Edition, builds on the success of the previous best-selling edition, providing comprehensive coverage of IMS – its concepts, architecture, protocols and functionalities with a wealth of new and updated material.
Mobile telephony with the current technology has been hugely successful and demonstrates the immense value of communicating with peers while being mobile, and with increasingly available smarter multimedia terminals, the communication experience will be something more than just exchanging voice. These multimedia terminals need IP multimedia networks. Hence the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has developed a standard for SIP-based IP multimedia service machinery known as ‘The IMS’ (IP Multimedia Subsystem). This completely up-to-date and informative guide explains everything you need to know about it…

Key features of the Second Edition include:

Two new chapters on push-to-talk over cellular and group management.
Additional new material includes: fixed and mobile convergence, interworking between IPv4 and IPv6 in the IMS, combined circuit-switched and IMS services (combinational services), IMS security and alternative session establishment procedures.
More coverage of the benefits of IMS, particularly with regard to its role in fixed-mobile convergence.
Special emphasis on services, featuring more detailed descriptions of presence, messaging, group management and push-to-talk over cellular (conferencing).
Updates on Third Generation Partnership Project Agreement (3GPP) Release 6 level.
New examples and case studies, including a variety of scenarios, how to handle multiple terminals and end-user preferences.
Written in a manner that allows readers to choose the level of knowledge and understanding they need to gain about the IMS, this volume will have instant appeal to a wide ranging audience including marketing managers, research and development engineers, network engineers, developes, test engineers and university students.

Java offers powerful multithreading capabilities — even on operating systems that offer no inherent multithreading support. Multithreading gives Java developers a powerful tool for dramatically improving the responsiveness and performance of their programs. Now there’s a complete guide to multithreaded programming with the Java 2 platform, written by multithreaded programming experts Bil Lewis and Daniel J. Berg. Start by understanding the rationale, fundamental concepts and foundations of multithreading, including the structures upon which threads are built, thread construction and lifecycles. Then, using extensive code examples, you’ll master thread scheduling models; synchronization variables; and learn how to solve complex synchronization problems. The authors explain thread-specific data, and demonstrate how to leverage OS libraries to make Java multithreading more effective. They also cover multithreaded program design, interactions with RMI, tools for building threaded programs; and advanced techniques for maximizing thread performance.

Publisher HarperBusiness

The authors of the bestselling Competing on Internet Time (a Business Week top 10 book) analyze the strategies, principles, and skills of three of the most successful and influential figures in business—Bill Gates, Andy Grove, and Steve Jobs—offering lessons for all managers and entrepreneurs on leadership, strategy and execution.

In less than a decade, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Andy Grove founded three companies that would define the world of technology and transform our lives. At their peaks, Microsoft, Apple, and Intel were collectively worth some $1.5 trillion. Strategy Rules examines these three individuals collectively for the first time—their successes and failures, commonalities and differences—revealing the business strategies and practices they pioneered while building their firms.

David B. Yoffie and Michael A. Cusumano have studied these three leaders and their companies for more than thirty years, while teaching business strategy, innovation and entrepreneurship at Harvard and MIT. In this enlightening guide, they show how Gates, Grove, and Jobs approached strategy and execution in remarkably similar ways—yet markedly differently from their erstwhile competitors—keeping their focus on five strategic rules.

Strategy Rules brings together the best practices in strategic management and high-tech entrepreneurship from three path-breaking entrepreneurs who emerged as CEOs of huge global companies. Their approaches to formulating strategy and building organizations offer unique insights for start-up executives as well as the heads of modern multinationals.
