This chapter summarizes what we have learned in the past decade of research into extremely high throughput networks. Such networks are colloquially referred to as "Gigabit Networks" in reference to the billion bit per second throughput regime they now operate in. The engineering challenges are in the integration of fast transmission systems and high-performance engineering workstations.
