Computer Networking with Internet Protocols and Technology, the newest book by award-winning author William Stallings, provides a clear and comprehensive survey of computer networks and leading edge Internet technologies. This top down approach is organized in a modular fashion permitting professors or professionals to design a course or plan of study to meet their own needs.

Major problems confronting network designers include the need to support multimedia and real-time traffic, to control congestion, and to provide different levels of quality of service (QoS) to different applications. The text incorporates solutions to these problems in discussion of principles, design approaches, and an up-to-date survey of developments in Internet-based protocols and algorithms. A comprehensive website and supplementary materials help professors implement the text into their courses, and assist students and professionals in learning about network performance and design with hands-on projects.

Features and benefits:
  • Top-down, flexible, modular organization provides teaching adaptability and reader motivation.
  • Reporting on next-generation Internet protocols explains RSVP, MPLS, SIP and RTP and how they fit together.
  • Unified examination compares Integrated and Differentiated Services (IS and DS).
  • In-depth coverage introducing TCP/IP, its performance, and congestion control offers a foundation for detailed advanced material.
  • Comprehensive survey of network security and network management covers the requirements and design issues involved in managing and safe guarding distributed systems.
