This edition includes new chapters on the use of Internet technology. The book offers an incomparable tour that explains everything from Internet applications to the lowest levels of packet transmission. It shows how protocols are layered, and explains how a given layer provides services used by the next higher layer. Once considered insignificant, UDP forms the important basis for multicast and broadcast applications and new applications that transfer audio or video. The chapter explains competing standards for IP telephony, including protocols such as H. Includes a CD-ROM with animations, packet traces, more than photos of networking equipment, code from the book and copies of protocol standards.

About Features NEW - An integrated approach to learning—Combines the best of top-down networking with the best of bottom-up networking. Exposes students to applications and gets them programming early, while delivering the material in logical order.

NEW - Updated and revised content throughout. Supplies students with the most current information on networking and Internet technology. Introduces students to an important topic for use with multicasting, message systems, and Internet telephony.

Explores a technology that allows multiple computers to share a single IP address—an important component of both residential and small business networks. Explains the protocols used for IP telephony, and discusses the problem of interfacing between an IP telephone system and the current public switched telephone network. Broad and substantial coverage.

Provides students with in-depth discussions of topics such as: local and wide area networks, local access technologies such as ADSL and cable modems, dynamic web document technologies, network management, socket programming, address binding, IPv6, error handling with ICMP, and Virtual Private Networks. Focus on concepts and principles. Enables students to apply the principles they learn to new technologies in this evolving field where technologies may become obsolete in a few years.

Flexible organization—Chapters can be covered in a variety of orders after students have completed Parts I and II. CD-ROM included with every text—Features keyword search mechanism and links to the Website, which is updated continuously.

Supplies students with animated figures that help clarify concepts, over photos of network wiring and equipment, and data files that can be used as input to student projects and figures from the text. Provides packet traces so that students without access to networking facilities can write programs that read a trace and process packets as if they have been captured from the network.

Online help for instructors and students—Two electronic mailing lists available for the text. General information can be obtained from netbook cs. Discussions about teaching the material occur on netbook-inst cs. To join either list, send an e-mail message to the list name -request with a body that consists of the word subscribe.

Instructors are requested to establish a single local alias for all students at their site. Helps students master the new and sometimes confusing networking terminology, including acronyms and jargon. Definitions in the glossary have been written independently rather than being taken verbatim from the text in order to provide additional clarification. Highly accessible—Does not use sophisticated mathematics, defines concepts clearly with analogies and examples, uses examples and drawings to illustrate how the technology operates, states results of analysis without mathematical proofs, and does not assume a knowledge of operating systems.

Appropriate for a variety of student audiences, including those without backgrounds in networking.
