Book Description

Computer and Communication Networks, Second Edition, explains the modern technologies of 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; and 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/ 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
  • Multicast routing, and protocols
  • Wide area wireless networks and LTE
  • Transport and end-to-end protocols
  • Network applications and management
  • Network security
  • Network queues and delay analysis
  • Advanced router/switch architecture
  • QoS and scheduling
  • Tunneling, VPNs, and MPLS
  • All-optical networks, WDM, and GMPLS
  • Cloud computing and network
  • defined networking (SDN)
  • VoIP signaling
  • Media exchange and voice/video compression
  • Distributed/cloud-based multimedia networks
  • Mobile ad hoc networks
  • Wireless sensor networks

Key features include

  • More than three hundred fifty figures that simplify complex topics
  • Numerous algorithms that summarize key networking protocols and equations
  • Up-to-date case studies illuminating concepts and theory
  • Approximately four hundred exercises and examples honed over Mir’s twenty years of teaching networking
