Communication Networks: Principles and Practice

by: Sumit Kasera, Nishit Narang, Sumita Narang


Abstract: Communication Networks: Principles and Practice is a simple and jargon-free presentation on the core concepts of networking. The book adopts a novel approach, wherein each chapter first details a particular concept of networking and then explains it using examples from contemporary technologies like TCP/IP, ATM, 3G Networks, etc. Divided in the following three parts, the book covers the important topics of communication, networking, and computer networks: • Introductory Concepts (including Connection-oriented/Connectionless services, Layered architecture and OSI model, Transfer modes, Network topology) • Core Concepts (including Transmission, Data Link Functions, Bridging, Switching, Addressing, Signalling, and Routing) • Advanced Concepts (including Traffic Management, Network Management, and Security Management)
