Overview

* A practical hands-on book that covers troubleshooting and maintenance of TCP/IP networks
• Provides a solid understanding of the application of TCP/IP from an engineering perspective
• Complete coverage from networking fundamentals to Internet-enabled control systems

TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is the suite of communications protocols used to connect hosts on the Internet. TCP/IP uses several protocols, the two main ones being TCP and IP. TCP/IP is built into the UNIX operating system and is used by the Internet, making it the de facto standard for transmitting data over networks. The TCP/IP suite of protocols has become a dominant technology due to its widespread use and reliability, while Ethernet is fast becoming a de facto industrial networking standard.

There is a strong need for a book covering TCP/IP, Ethernet and related topics from the perspective of an engineer rather than that of an IT professional. Practical TCP/IP and Ethernet Networking for Industry has been structured to cover the main areas of TCP/IP and Ethernet in detail, while going through the practical implementation of TCP/IP in office and industrial applications as well as the practical use of the Internet and Intranets.

Audience: Control and Instrumentation engineers; industrial system integrators; students taking electronics or computing degree courses; Electrical, mechanical and chemical engineers and technicians wishing to understand the essentials of Ethernet and TCP/IP networking.
