Product Description

Review

"This book provides a diverse and solid foundation that will be immensely beneficial to new network engineers, those looking for a refresher or developers" -- Alan Young, Google, Network Surveillance Team "i haven't had time to read the manuscript completely. however, what i like about the book is it covers all the topics from basics to voip to mpls vpn to ssl and this is one of the key factor that separates this book. unlike other tcp/ip books which talk mostly about history this one talks about what is happening today. another great thing i like is the use of diagram and tools." -- Amit KT, Network Engineer, Peak Web Consulting, SF, CA "It looks like a very good primer for someone who is about to get serious about working in the networking field. The book describes several things that we take for granted like standards organizations. But if you are new to the industry it is good to be educated about how we arrive at standards." -- Landon Scott, Channel SE, Juniper Networks

This is a new book and I have received it not long ago. I have looked at it closely if not read all by now, although I plan to. It is NOT for newcomers but if you have read some basic text like Tanenbaum or Odom before, this is really juicy and instructive stuff. The guy has produced a really good book that transmits his experience. Don't be put off by all the code and CLI and screenshots in the text. Even if you have never seen IOS or Juniper OS before, all is explained and will definitely make you see things in a different way, highlight the theory with practicalities.
I would recommend to buy this book together with the one from Tanenbaum mentioned above, or Stallings Data Comms. PERFECT BOOK! The "Stevens" of the new age.

This is by far one of the most incoherent and badly organised books I've ever read. Topics are presented in a chaotic way that leaves no room for a thorough buildup of knowledge.

Comparing it with the classic TCP/IP illustrated is only a marketing trik as far as I can understand because the "TCP/IP" series was deeply educational (meaning there was at least some thought in how the topics were presented) while "illustrated network" could only pose as a reference for the seasoned engineer.

This book is the absolutely most amazing bible of networking I have ever seen. If you are a beginner, well when you're finished you are not going to be one anymore. If you are more advanced, then it has lots of stuff to teach you also.

Excellent Book on Internet/TCP/IP Networking 4 May 2009
By F. M. Frazzini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent entry level to strong intermediate level textbook on all the foundationally relevant aspects of Internet/TCP/IP networking. There is good coverage of "current" topics (as of 2009) like security, IPv6, and VOIP. The author is very experienced (40 years in the industry) which shows, and he has a nice style with good transitions, interesting questions that are later answered, and he even presents relevant and interesting history to help you understand the subjects. The best part about the book are the more than enough examples with diagrams/figures and tables that really help illustrate the concepts (thus the title.) I highly recommend this book for any network administrator, network student, and even for IT management.

Perhaps the best, broad real networking book available 4 Feb. 2011
By Philip Kasten - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I came across this book on a shelf in a chain book store (but bought it from Amazon!) and was immediately interested because it was a Networking book that did not assume Networking is synonymous with a specific networking vendor. Far too many _Networking_ books are written as if a particular networking vendor is the only way to explain networking concepts -- similar to the way too many programming books used to assume that _Programming_ was synonymous with _Windows Programming_. There certainly is a place for such books; however, there is also a place for books about networking that are far less vendor-specific.

Although I have not (yet) read the book through to the end cover, I am thoroughly enjoying the text.

Aside from being extremely well written, every discussion and example is based on a single, real and complete network, that is kept consistent throughout the text.

If you are looking for a broad yet "deep enough" explanation of the TCP/IP suite of protocols, I strongly recommend this book.

Good book. The author describes the simple aspects of networking before delving into more complex topics. I think it is very informative and complete. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the details of networking.

Good Generalized Book 17 Jun. 2014
By Andrew Boyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a very good generalized book over the architecture of a network. He fins a good way to explain the material making it an easy read on something that typically can be boring. Would recommend to anyone looking for an overview of TCP/IP Networks.
