Overview

This practical introduction to data communications takes a "top down" approach that starts by first determining business objectives and then developing a system to meet those objectives. Updated throughout, the second edition features new coverage of network security, network management, enterprise networking and the Internet, Remote Access, and Wireless Networking. The business cases have been updated and more examples and actual networking problems have been added.

This undergraduate text in data communications approaches problem solving with a practical, business perspective. With case studies and process modeling, the author introduces data/voice communication concepts, issues and technologies. He then focuses on three major networking areas: LANs, enterprise networking and network administration. In a top down approach, he first introduces concepts and then details hardware, architectures, operating systems, technologies and applications. Chapters include 'Managerial Perspective' sections that use a "bottom-line" approach to network analysis and design. This is especially valid within the context of network administration and the network development live cycle. The associated Web site contains additional information, references and links. An instructor's resource guide is also available.

    This is what I think of Mr. Goldman's book

    I would like to comment on Mr. Goldman book on Data Communication. My review of this book effects to my rating. I believe that this book is not good for Students that are studying the IT industry for the first time. You must read a few introductory books on Data Communications to be able to tackle this book. The book readable in some area of the book, and there is some areas of the book that you really don't understand what the author is trying to say. It is really a head scratcher at times. My advice before reading this book is read some introductory books on Data Communications before reading this book.
