This book includes practical coverage of the function of synchronous and asynchronous communications, error detection and correction tools and techniques, strategies for using common-carrier telephone systems for computer communications, the three major multiplexing methods, network interconnection procedures and layered architecture construction. The "Commkit" software assists the reader by offering working simulations of modern software, error detection and LAN analyzers, and fully experimental models of a wide area network, token ring and UNIX socket interface.
