A unique text on computer networks, this 7th edition of Computer Networking: A Top Down Approach builds on the author’s long tradition of teaching this complex subject through a layered approach in a “top-down manner.”

As the text progresses towards the physical layer, it exposes students to important concepts early in their study of networking, motivating students to develop an interest in the subject early on. The text focuses on Internet topics and fundamental issues in networking, providing an excellent start for students studying computer science and electrical engineering, without the need for extensive programming/mathematics knowledge. The Seventh Edition of Engineering The Network has been updated to reflect the latest advances in networking.

About the Book

Chapter 1 has been updated in response to the ever-growing reach and use of the Internet.

Chapter 2, which covers the application layer, has been significantly updated.

Chapter 3, which covers the transport layer, has been modestly updated.

Chapter 4 covers the “data plane” component of the network layer – the per-router forwarding function.

Chapter 5 discusses how a datagram is routed along router paths end-to-end from a source host to a destination host based on the control plane functions of the network layer.

Chapter 6, which deals with data centers and Ethernet, has an updated treatment.

Chapter 7, which discusses cellular networks and wireless networks, contains new material on 802.11 networks (WiFi) and LTE.
