Since the first edition of this title was published three years ago, the world of communications technology has changed dramatically, specifically in terms of the rapid increase in Internet connections. This has caused an accompanying rise in the technological and administrative difficulties experienced by LAN and WAN users and managers. This new edition addresses these challenges in this practical and applications-oriented book that includes new coverage of High Speed LANs, FDDI, Fast Ethernet and ATM, Token Ring Networks, Ethernet and ATM switching in internetworking. There is also detailed coverage of TCP/IP, filtering and proxy server information.

Covering all aspects of internetworking, this timely book opens with a detailed examination of the operation and performance of LANs and WANs before focusing on internetworking. The basic concepts of internetworking, the utilization of communications equipment, and communications carrier line facilities are all carried in depth.

Editorial Reviews

A manual for practicing and student telecommunications engineers. First sets out the foundations and standards of networking, then examines the operation of different types of communication equipment and communications carrier line facilities, methods to determine the minimum level of performance required to avoid internetwork degradation, and several mathematical models that can be adapted to specific environments to project different types of performance prior to ordering hardware or communications facilities. Updated from the 1993 edition to include innovations such as Fast Ethernet, Windows NT, data-link switching, and virtual LANs and networking. No bibliography.
