Engineering Approach To Computer Networking : Atm Networks, the Internet, and the Telephone Network (97 Edition)by Srinivasan Keshav
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
This practical introduction to computer networking takes a unique and highly effective "engineering" approach that not only describes how networks operate but also offers insight into the principles of network design.
An Engineering Approach to Computer Networking simultaneously studies all three major network technologies
Practical in focus, An Engineering Approach to Computer Networking features many real-world examples and is supported with on-line material including:
With this deeper understanding of network structure and hands-on experience implementing protocols, you will have an excellent command of the field and be better equipped to design powerful and efficient networks and leading-edge networking software.
S. Keshav, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Cornell University, has employed the engineering approach with great success in networking courses he has taught at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, and Columbia University. Formerly a Member of the Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories, Dr. Keshav received his Ph.D. in 1991 from the University of California at Berkeley. He can be reached at email@example.com.
Book News Annotation:
Offers insight into the principles of network design as well as coverage of all essential networking topics: protocol layering, multiple access, switching, scheduling, naming, addressing, routing, error and flow control, and traffic management. The author's engineering approach involves identifying the fundamental constraints on the problem, making reasonable "real world" assumptions, and then examining the pros and cons of several alternative solutions.
