Forou Brand New. The purpose of this course is to introduce fundamental principles and concepts of computer networks. We will use a top-down approach to study the Internet Protocol stack.
We will first study popular network applications such as Web, email, FTP, and P2P, then study communications services required to support these applications, and finally study how these communication services are implemented. This new networking text follows a top-down approach. The presentation begins with an explanation of the application layer, which makes it easier for students to understand how network devices work, and then, with the students fully engaged, the authors move on to discuss the other layers, ending with the physical layer.
The appealing visual layout combines with numerous figures and examples to provide multiple routes to understanding. Students are presented with the most up-to-date material currently available and are encouraged to view what they are learning in a real-world context.
This approach is both motivating and practical in that students begin to see themselves as the professionals they will soon become. Overview This new networking text follows a top-down approach.
