Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach

Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Building on the successful top-down approach of previous editions, the Fifth Edition of Computer Networking continues with an early emphasis on application-layer paradigms and application programming interfaces, encouraging a hands-on experience with protocols and networking concepts. With this edition, Kurose and Ross have revised and modernized treatment of some key chapters to integrate the most current and relevant networking technologies.

Networking today involves much more than standards specifying message formats and protocol behaviors—and it is far more interesting. Professors Kurose and Ross focus on describing emerging principles in a lively and engaging manner and then illustrate these principles with examples drawn from Internet architecture.

Book News Annotation:

Kurose (U. of Massachusetts, Amherst) and Ross' (Polytechnic Institute of NYU) updated textbook is suitable for use in a first course on computer networking, in both computer science and electrical engineering departments, and as a resource for telecommunications practitioners. Appropriate for undergraduate and first-year graduate courses, the text assumes students have experience with C, C++, or Java. The fifth edition includes an expanded network security chapter with new coverage of IPsec and virtual private networks, and a new lab on IPsec; added material on distribute hash tables; enhanced coverage of BitTorrent P2P; updated coverage of access networks, including cable, fiber-to-the-home, and DSL; a new finite-state machine description of TCP congestion control; and a substantially revised chapter on the link layer and LANs. Purchase of the text includes six months of prepaid access to a companion website. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
