not yet rated|write a review
This unique guide to communication networks fundamentals takes a new approach. Rather than following the standard (and increasingly outmoded) OSI network model, it is organized around networking concepts. Rather than plunge readers into the alphabet soup of communications protocols and technologies, Kasera starts with a concept like “routing,” and explains each technology in terms of how it helps to perform that function. The book is designed for communications engineers and technicians, as well as students.
