Data Communications and Networks: An Engineering Approach
Data Communications and Networks uses a top-down, Internet-focussedapproach to tackle the problem of communication system design. Anintegrated approach is taken to networks and data communications,with an emphasis that starts from the top level requirements andworks downwards, describing how such requirements are fulfilled bylower layers of the transmission chain. While the book containssufficient detail to provide an excellent foundation, clarity isparamount and care is taken not to swamp the reader withinformation to the point where the underlying concepts areobscured.
The Internet is used as the principle example of a communicationsystem, allowing the reader to follow the system from theapplication layers, with source coding and security, through thenetwork, with naming and routing algorithms, down to transport andphysical aspects of a communication system. Modern techniques suchas mobile radio, Voice over IP, and ASDL, are covered, while moretraditional aspects such as circuit switching, which still form asignificant part of current systems, are not overlooked.
By providing a technical introduction and including applicationexamples, this text will have significant appeal to final yearstudents, postgraduates and professionals with a science orengineering background wishing to gain a basic understanding of thekey concepts behind data communications engineering.
