Product Description

Synopsis

"Computer Networks, 4E" is the only introductory computer networking book written by authors who have had first-hand experience with many of the protocols discussed in the book, who have actually designed some of them as well, and who are still actively designing the computer networks today. This newly revised edition continues to provide an enduring, practical understanding of networks and their building blocks through rich, example-based instruction. The authors' focus is on the why of network design, not just the specifications comprising today's systems but how key technologies and protocols actually work in the real world to solve specific problems.The new edition makes less use of computer code to explain protocols than earlier editions. Moreover, this new edition shifts the focus somewhat higher in the protocol stack where there is generally more innovative and exciting work going on at the application and session layers than at the link and physical layers. It is completely updated with new sidebars discussing successes/failures of previously deployed networks.

It provides thorough companion website with downloadable OpNet network simulation software and lab experiments manual. It includes expanded coverage of topics of utmost importance to today's networking professionals, e.g., security, wireless, multimedia applications.

Format: Paperback
This is a new edition of an established computer networks textbook.

It is an academic textbook rather than a practitioners guide, but it does use real networking rather than abstract theory as the source of the principles discussed so it would be a good choice if you want to move from knowing how to put a network together to why the designers built it that way. There are lots of end-of-chapter exercises that you can try if you want to deepen your understanding.

There are not many changes from the third edition that will inconvenience lecturers or students, mostly the changes that I have noticed so far are additions of newer technologies rather than major restructuring. One exception is that RTP, which used to be in 9.3, has moved to 5.4.

Format: Paperback
Very good book for advanced beginners on Networked Systems. Pretty good reference to have near by. It has the educational approach of Kurose & Ross book and the clearness of Stevens Volume #1, although Stevens is the still the best as far as TCP/IP stack is concerns. It gives you a Holistic View about Networked Systems and how diffrent mechanisms, approaches, networks, concepts are connected each other.
I could give it 5/5 if it had even more examples like Stevens Volume#1 has, but then the book would have 500 pages more.
