This new networking text follows a top-down approach. The presentation begins with an explanation of the application layer, which makes it easier for students to understand how network devices work, and then, with the students fully engaged, the authors move on to discuss the other layers, ending with the physical layer. With this top-down approach, its thorough treatment of the topic, and a host of pedagogical features, this new networking book offers the market something it hasn't had for many years- a well-crafted, modern text that places the student at the center of the learning experience.
Forouzan's Computer Networks presents a complex topic in an accessible, student-friendly way that makes learning the material not only manageable but fun as well. The appealing visual layout combines with numerous figures and examples to provide multiple routes to understanding. Students are presented with the most up-to-date material currently available and are encouraged to view what they are learning in a real-world context. This approach is both motivating and practical in that students begin to see themselves as the professionals they will soon become.
karmano hy api boddhavyam boddhavyam ca vikarmanah akarmanas ca boddhavyam gahana karmano gatih The intricacies of action are very hard to understand. Therefore one should know properly what action is, what forbidden action is, and what inaction is. The Bhagvad Gita (4.17) This book is the outcome of the research contribution of Hanane Fathi towards her Ph.D. studies jointly with Shyam S. Chakraborty and Ramjee Prasad as - pervisors. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is a ?rst book on voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) covering such a broad perspective as illustrated in Figure P.1. This book is a new, forward-looking resource that explores the present and future trends of VoIP in the wireless heterogeneous networks. This book also provides the discovery path that these network infrastructures are following from a perspective of synergies with the present systems and how they will pave the way for future systems. This book is intended for everyone in the ?eld of wireless information and multimedia communications. It provides different levels of material suitable for managers, researchers, network providers, and graduate students. We hope that all readers will experience the bene?ts and power of this knowledge. We have tried our best to make each chapter comprehensive and we cannot claim that this book is without errors. Any remarks to improve the text and correct the errors would be highly appreciated.
This book provides an adaptive control theory perspective on designing congestion controls for packet-switching networks. Relevant to a wide range of disciplines and industries, including the music industry, computers, image trading, and virtual groups, the text extensively discusses source-oriented, or end-to-end, congestion control algorithms. The book empowers readers with clear understanding of the characteristics of packet-switching networks and their effects on system stability and performance. It provides schemes capable of controlling congestion and fairness and presents real-world applications to demonstrate the modeling and control techniques.
