Overview

Internet Architecture: An Introduction to IP Protocols is an expert, application-focused guide to the key Internet protocols networking professionals need to master.

World-renowned communications consultant Uyless Black begins with a detailed overview of how the Internet works and how it has evolved, reviewing key elements such as backbones, Metropolitan Area Exchanges (MAEs), and private peering points. He presents an architectural model that shows how TCP/IP and related protocols fit together, and organizes them into key functional areas. Next, he introduces each key Internet protocol in detail including:

  • LAN and link protocols
  • Routing protocols with OSPF and BGP
  • IP, ICMP, TCP, and UDP
  • Internet addressing and naming protocols: DNS, ARP, and DHCP
  • VPNs and remote access: L2TP, IPSec, and more
  • Network management: SNMP, RMON, and MIBs

Black concludes with an expert introduction to the protocols underlying the emerging multiservice Internet, including Voice over IP (VoIP), as well as Quality of Service (QoS) solutions such as MPLS and DiffServ. For networking professionals, this is the most relevant, authoritative guide to Internet protocols available: today's and tomorrow's.

Read an Excerpt

PREFACE:

This book is one in a series of books called, "Advanced Communications Technologies." As the name of the book implies, the focus is on the Internet architecture and the principal protocols that make up this architecture. The book is an expansion of Advanced Features of the Internet, also part of this series.

The book has been written for this series to act as the introduction to the other more advanced Internet topics. As such, it is written for the person who is new to the Internet protocols, but it assumes the reader has had some experience in data communications.

I hope you find this book a valuable addition to your library.
