The protocols and standards for networking are numerous and complex. Multivendor internetworking, crucial to present day users, requires a grasp of these protocols and standards. Data and Computer Communications: Networking and Internetworking, a comprehensive text/reference, brings clarity to all of the complex issues involved in networking activity, providing excellent instruction for students and an indispensable reference for practitioners.This systematic work answers a vast array of questions about overall network architecture, design, protocols, and deployment issues. It offers a practical, thorough treatment of the applied concepts of data and computer communication systems, including signaling basics, transmission of digital signals, and layered architecture. The book features in-depth discussions of integrated digital networks, integrated services digital networks, and high-speed networks, including currently evolving technologies, such as ATM switching, and their applications in multimedia technology. It also presents the state-of-the-art in Internet technology, its services, and implementations.The balance of old and new networking technologies presents an appealing set of topics for both undergraduate students and computer and networking professionals. This book presents all seven layers of OSI-based networks in great detail, covering services, functions, design issues, interfacing, and protocols. With its introduction to the basic concepts and practical aspects of the field, Data and Computer Communications: Networking and Internetworking helps you keep up with the rapidly growing and dominating computer networking technology.
