Overview

How modern networks actually operate, and how they have changed and evolved since the time of Vint Cerf, Bob Kahn, and W. Richard Stevens.

In 1994, W. Richard Stevens published a networking classic TCP/IP Illustrated .The model for that book was a show-and-tell approach to networking concepts. Walter Goralski’s The Illustrated Network: How TCP/IP Works in a Modern Network takes this time-honored approach and modernizes it by creating not only a much larger and more complicated network, but also by taking into account all the networking advancements that have taken place since the mid-1990s — namely the convergence of data, voice, video, and other services onto a single shared infrastructure.

  • New Modern Approach to Popular Topic Adopts the popular Stevens approach and modernizes it, giving the reader insights into the most up-to-date network equipment, operating systems, and routing protocols from MPLS, BGB, multicast, as well as the most recent network services and developments including IPSec, VPNs, and VoIP.
  • Shows and Tells Presents an "illustrated" explanation of how TCP/IP works with consistent examples from a working network configuration.
  • Over 330 Illustrations True to the title, there are 330 diagrams, screen shots, topology diagrams, and a unique repeating chapter opening diagram to reinforce concepts.
  • Based on Actual Networks A complete and modern network was assembled to write this book, with all the material coming from actual devices connected to and running on the network, bringing the captured TCP/IP packet traffic, not theory, into the basis for the book’s examinations.
