Product description


“Since most of the students in my classes are from a computer science background, teaching them the hardware and frequency domains issues is a challenge. This book [Stallings] does an excellent job in covering those topics.” — Murat Yuksel, University of Nevada

“The textbook I have been using does not really do justice to the data communication core topics and I am impressed the comprehensive section provided on this topic in the Stallings text.” — Jean-Claude Franchitti, New York University

“I am very impressed with both the breadth and the depth of coverage of the topics included. They meet the needs of practical laboratory assignments for a senior computer science networking class quite well.” — John Doyle, Indiana University, Southeast

“I have a combination of both students who have a background in computer networks and those who have never taken a course in computer networks. All would find this book [Stallings] very useful and excellent.” — Mike Kain, Drexel University

“It [Stallings] is at least at peer — if not on top — of the best textbooks I have used in networking and beyond.” — Xiaobo Zhou, University of Colorado — Colorado Springs
