9780123851383: Computer Networks ISE: A Systems Approach (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Networking)

"Computer Networks, 4/e" 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 features 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.

Review:

I have known and used this book for years and I always found it very valuable as a textbook for teaching computer networks as well as a reference book for networking professionals. This Fifth Edition maintains the core value of former editions and brings the clarity of explanation of network protocols in the introduction of the most up-to-date techniques, technologies and requirements of networking. Beyond describing the details of past and current networks, this book successfully motivates the curiosity, and hopefully new research, for the networks of the future.

Stefano Basagni, Northeastern University

Peterson and Davie have written an outstanding book for the computer networking world. It is a well-organized book that features a very helpful "big picture" systems approach. This book is a must have!

Yonshik Choi, Illinois Institute of Technology

The Fifth Edition of Computer Networks: A Systems Approach is well-suited for the serious student of computer networks, thou
