Computer Networks (4th Edition) (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.5578

Appropriate for courses titled Computer Networking or Introduction to Networking at both the undergraduate and graduate level in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, CIS, MIS, and Business Departments.

In this highly anticipated revision, Tanenbaum takes a structured approach to explaining how networks work from the inside out. He starts with an explanation of the physical layer of networking, computer hardware and transmission systems; then works his way up to network applications. Tanenbaum's in-depth application coverage includes email; the domain name system; the World Wide Web (both client- and server-side); and multimedia (including voice over IP, Internet radio video on demand, video conferencing, and streaming media. Each chapter follows a consistent approach: Tanenbaum presents key principles, then illustrates them utilizing real-world example networks that run through the entire book-the Internet, and wireless networks, including Wireless LANs, broadband wireless and Bluetooth. This new Fourth Edition contains a new chapter devoted exclusively to network security. The textbook is supplemented by a Solutions Manual, as well as a Website containing PowerPoint slides, art in various forms, and other tools for instruction, including a protocol simulator whereby students can develop and test their own network protocols.

Salient Features

  • The definitive introduction to networking for computer professionals - now updated!
  • Computer Networks is the absolute "bible" in networking fundamentals.
  • New Chapter on security, including coverage of IPSec, web security, and VPN security.
  • New coverage of wireless communications including Bluetooth, 802.11b/wireless LANs and 3G cellular systems.

New to this Edition

  • New coverage of wireless communications-Includes detailed coverage of Bluetooth, 802.1b wireless LANs, and third-generation (3G) cellular systems.
  • Prepares students to work with wireless technologies in networks of all sizes-both local and wide are networks.
  • Entirely new chapter on security-Presents in-depth introductions to cryptography; secret and public key algorithms (including the recently US-approved Advanced Encryption Algorithm); IPSec (IP security); Virtual Private Networks; e-mail, web, and e-commerce security; mobile agent security-even the social issues surrounding network security and privacy.
  • Prepares students to deal with one of the most crucial topics in networking today: security.
  • Greatly expanded coverage of multimedia networking-Covers the latest technologies and standards in data compression, streaming media, Voice Over IP, video on demand, video conferencing, and multicasting.
  • Introduces students to the latest multimedia networking technologies, preparing them for a world of networking that goes far beyond basic data networking.
  • New coverage of VLANs (Virtual Local Area Networks-Introduces the concepts and techniques surrounding VLANs (collections of PCs and servers that act as if they are part of the same LAN when they are not.
  • Brings students up-to-date on a key approach to enhancing network performance, using network resources more efficiently, and simplifying network management.
  • New coverage of DCHP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) and NAT (Network Address Translation)-Covers today's leading IP addressing solutions.
  • Introduces students to key advances in network administration.
  • Expanded Coverage of QoS (Quality of Service)-Introduces key advances in traffic engineering, as well as new protocols such as MPLS and their role in improving network stability and predictability.
  • Brings students up-to-date on an emerging area of networking that will be crucial to the design, implementation, and management of next-generation networks.
  • New problems and lab exercises at the end of each chapter-Presents hands-on exercises based on real-world networks and networking challenges.
  • Helps reinforce concepts presented in each chapter, enabling students to apply those concepts to the types of problems they are most likely to encounter.
