Taking a conceptual approach, it describes: Telecommunications (T1 hierarchy and encoding, QAM modems, DSL, ADSL, twisted pair standards, coaxial cable, fiber optic technology and encoding, SONET protocol), network architecture (comparison of OSI model and TCP/IP suite, peer-to-peer communication, Berkeley (BSD), client server model, sockets, system calls, network topology), wide area networks (ATM, Frame Relay, FDDI, ISDN), local area networks (cyclic redundancy check, HDLC, Ethernet, gigabit Ethernet, token ring), and the Internet (TCP/IP, RIP,OSPF, IDRP, PPP, RTP, address masks, interface layer, SNMP, ASN.1).

Network architecture is an abstract concept. It is also an important one. First, we will develop the concept of a protocol, because protocols are important building blocks of network architectures. In fact, a network architecture is sometimes defined as a system of protocols. Next, we will describe network topologies and show how they relate to network architectures. Finally we will give a more rigorous and complete definition of network architecture.

Reader Reviews for "Computer Networks Super Review"

Reviewed by Calvin Ross 9/25/2001
A Clear Presentation of Networking.
I really never understood TCP/IP until I read Randall Raus' book, Computer Networks. I didn't really "get" the Internet, especially the interface layer, before reading this book. I recommend it highly to anyone who would like a clear, theoretical explanation of networking and the Internet.

Reviewed by Victor Roszell 9/25/2001
Computer Networks Super Review by Randall Raus is packed with solid information. It explains the highly technical concepts of computer networking in clear, easy to understand language, and covers hot technologies such as DSL and transmission over fiber-optic. Unlike many other texts on networking, it doesn't move to quickly or bore the reader with needless repetition. It is also well organized and has many useful diagrams and tables to help the reader grasp complex concepts. Microsoft Press could learn a few things from this author! A must for the serious student of networking! Victor Roszell, MCSE, BA English. Long Beach, CA, U.S.
