Book Description

This book explores the key principles of computer networking, with examples drawn from the real world of network and protocol design. Using the Internet as the primary example, this best selling and classic textbook explains various protocols and networking technologies.

The systems oriented approach encourages students to think about how individual network components fit into a larger, complex system of interactions.

It has a completely updated content with expanded coverage of the topics of utmost importance to networking professionals and students, including P2P, wireless, network security, and network applications such as e mail and the Web, IP telephony and video streaming, and peer to peer file sharing.

There is now increased focus on application layer issues where innovative and exciting research and design is currently the center of attention.

Other topics include network design and architecture; the ways users can connect to a network; the concepts of switching, routing, and internetworking; end to end protocols; congestion control and resource allocation; and end to end data.
