A World of Protocols is a comprehensive review of data communications protocols and technologies for network managers and field service engineers. It contains all the WAN, LAN and ATM protocols (including header structures and background inform! ation) and technologies in use today in data communications networks. For each protocol, it gives a brief description and background information, including the protocol header structure with a definition of each field in the header. This book combines all of this information concerning today's protocols in one publication, providing networking professionals the ability to easily locate specific information that they may require concerning a particular protocol. Information is acquired from the protocol standards as of the time of printing and is presented in an easy to use format.

Keeping up with all the different types of protocols seems close to impossible. For starters, the protocol universe is somewhat unapproachable due to its vastness, even for the information technology professional. But even worse, the darn things seem to be reproducing faster than anyone can keep track of. Luckily, the engineers and academicians at the Israeli-based RADCOM Academy have surveyed the situation and have gathered upwards of 150 protocols under one aptly titled roof: A World of Protocols. In addition, the authors have devoted several chapters to physical interfaces for WAN, LAN, and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) networks.
You won't find a tremendous amount of history or context for the protocols covered within the pages of RADCOM's offering, but you will find quick-and-dirty explanations of the fields, frames, parameters, and packets that inhabit this realm. This book is the perfect companion for digging through product manuals, white papers, and technology articles. --Sarah Roberts-WittFrom the Publisher:
The idea for the RADCOM Academy actually came from our many customers. As we became familiar with our customers and their problems, we soon realized that today's networking professionals require more than just state-of-the-art testing equipment. Given the constant growth and changes on the data communications industry, the necessary knowledge is not always at hand. It is readily available from a wide variety of sources, but finding it can be cumbersome. RADCOM is committed to helping you solve your networking problems. Since it's founding, RADCOM has been busy acquiring the knowledge necessary to develop test solutions for today's networking problems. I see this publication, from the RADCOM Academy, as a natural extension of this process. It summarizes our acquired knowledge concerning today's data communications protocols and technologies and presents it in a format, which we hope, will assist today's network managers and field service engineers perform their jobs more efficiently.
