Computer and Communication Networks, Second Edition, explains the modern technologies of networking and communications, preparing you to analyze and simulate complex networks, and to design cost-effective networks for emerging requirements. Offering uniquely balanced coverage of basic and advanced topics, it teaches through case studies, realistic examples and exercises, and intuitive illustrations.

 

Nader F. Mir establishes a solid foundation in basic networking concepts; TCP/IP schemes; wireless and LTE networks; Internet applications, such as Web and e-mail; and network security. Then, he delves into both network analysis and advanced networking protocols, VoIP, cloud-based multimedia networking, SDN, and virtualized networks.

 

In this new edition, Mir provides updated, practical, scenario-based information that many networking books lack, offering a uniquely effective blend of theory and implementation. Drawing on extensive field experience, he presents many contemporary applications and covers key topics that other texts overlook, including P2P and voice/video networking, SDN, information-centric networking, and modern router/switch design.

 

Students, researchers, and networking professionals will find up-to-date, thorough coverage of

  • Packet switching
  • Internet protocols (including IPv6)
  • Networking devices
  • Links and link interfaces
  • LANs, WANs, and Internetworking

From the Back Cover:

As the number and variety of communication services grow, so do the challenges of designing cost-effective networks that meet the requirements of emerging technologies in wireless, sensor, and mesh networks. Computer and Communication Networks is the first book to offer balanced coverage of all these topics using extensive case studies and examples.

This essential reference begins by providing a solid foundation in TCP/IP schemes, wireless networking, Internet applications, and network security. The author then delves into the field’s analytical aspects and advanced networking protocols.

Students and researchers will find up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of fundamental and advanced networking topics, including:

  • Packet-switched networks and Internet Network protocols
  • Links
  • LAN Protocols
  • Wireless Networks
  • Transport Protocols
  • Applications and Management
  • Network Security
  • Delay Analysis
  • QoS
  • High speed protocols
  • Voice over IP
  • Optical Networks
  • Multicasting Protocols
  • Compression of Voice and Video
  • Sensor/Mesh Networks

Network architecture books are often criticized for not offering enough practical, scenario-based information. Computer and Communication Networks provides an effective blend of theory and implementation not found in other books.

Key features include:

  • Figures and images that simplify complex topics
  • Equations and algorithms
  • Case studies that further explain concepts and theory
  • Exercises and examples honed through the author’s twelve years of teaching about networking

Overall, readers will find a thorough design and performance evaluation that provides a foundation for developing the ability to analyze and simulate complex communication networks.
