This book is directed towards some of the recent networking demands that would be better addressed by a clean slate approach both from an architectural and protocols perspective. Two examples are discussed, one targeting the current Internet as an example of wired networks and the second focusing on mobile ad hoc networks as an example of wireless networks. The scope of the book shows how one can transition out of the current networking and layering principles and hence the constraints imposed by them.

Building on the successful top-down approach of previous editions, the Sixth Edition of Computer Networking continues with an early emphasis on application-layer paradigms and application programming interfaces (the top layer), encouraging a hands-on experience with protocols and networking concepts, before working down the protocol stack to more abstract layers. This book has become the dominant book for this course because of the authors’ reputations, the precision of explanation, the quality of the art program, and the value of their own supplements.

This book is for any telecommunications-convergence professional who needs to understand the structure of the industry, the structure of telephony networks and services, and the equipment involved.With the growing variety of networks and technologies now on offer it is inevitable that some convergence will take place between different networks, services and products. New VOIP (voice over internet protocol) networks must interwork with traditional networks. For instance, mobile phones can offer data services; wireless broadband connections to laptops will allow VOIP phone calls away from base; users could have the option of ‘convergent phones' that can be used on a landline when at home or business, but which can be used as a mobile when on the move, and so on. * AUTHORITATIVE: All contributors are recognized experts in their field and come from leading institutions. * INTERNATIONAL: In this age of globalization and standardization, special attention has been paid--both topically and authorially--to ensure the broad applicability and relevance of this material. * EXHAUSTIVE: A thorough reference covering the structure of the telecommunications industry, telephony networks and services, and equipment.

As the Internet has grown, so have the challenges associated with delivering static, streaming, and dynamic content to end-users. This book is unique in that it addresses the topic of content networking exclusively and comprehensively, tracing the evolution from traditional web caching to today's open and vastly more flexible architecture. With this evolutionary approach, the authors emphasize the field's most persistent concepts, principles, and mechanisms--the core information that will help you understand why and how content delivery works today, and apply that knowledge in the future. Focuses on the principles that will give you a deep and timely understanding of content networking. Offers dozens of protocol-specific examples showing how real-life Content Networks are currently designed and implemented. Provides extensive consideration of Content Services, including both the Internet Content Adaptation Protocol (ICAP) and Open Pluggable Edge Services (OPES). Examines methods for supporting time-constrained media such as streaming audio and video and real-time media such as instant messages. Combines the vision and rigor of a prominent researcher with the practical experience of a seasoned development engineer to provide a unique combination of theoretical depth and practical application.

Hands-on networking experience, without the lab! The best way to learn about network protocols is to see them in action. But that doesn't mean that you need a lab full of networking equipment. This revolutionary text and its accompanying CD give readers realistic hands-on experience working with network protocols, without requiring all the routers, switches, hubs, and PCs of an actual network. Computer Networking: Internet Protocols in Action provides packet traces of real network activity on CD. Readers open the trace files using Ethereal, an open source network protocol analyzer, and follow the text to perform the exercises, gaining a thorough understanding of the material by seeing it in action. Features * Practicality: Readers are able to learn by doing, without having to use actual networks. Instructors can add an active learning component to their course without the overhead of collecting the materials. * Flexibility: This approach has been used successfully with students at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Appropriate for courses regardless of whether the instructor uses a bottom-up or a top-down approach. * Completeness: The exercises take the reader from the basics of examining quiet and busy networks through application, transport, network, and link layers to the crucial issues of network security.
