Primarily intended for junior/senior or graduate level courses in computer networks, data networks, or distributed processing in CS or EE departments. Also useful (with selective omission of sections or chapters) for less advanced students.

While students are not expected to have a background in computer networks or advanced mathematics, a general background in computer systems and programming is assumed.
