Summary

Data Communications and Networking, 3/e provides a comprehensive and current introduction to networking technologies. The book is accessible to students from all backgrounds and uses hundreds of figures to visually represent concepts.

The new edition has been completely updated to reflect the constantly changing world of network technologies. Enhanced coverage of bluetooth, wireless, satellites, as well as four new chapters on security have been added.

The third edition has transitioned from using the 7-layer OSI model to the 5-layer Internet Model. More time is spent on TCP/IP in the new organization.

Forouzan's book continues to be supported by an On-line Learning Center (OLC) that contains many extra resources for students and instructors. Some of the features include PowerPoints, solutions, self-quizzing, and Flash animations that illustrate concepts.

New to This Edition

  • The third edition is organized according to the Internet Model and spends more time covering TCP/IP topics.
  • Optional sections containing select algorithms have been added, giving instructors a choice on how much math they would like to cover.
  • TCP/IP coverage has been expanded for the third edition.
  • Coverage of network security issues, an increasingly important area, has been expanded and updated for the third edition. The book now includes four current chapters on security.
  • Material has been completely updated to reflect the most recent networking technologies such as bluetooth, wireless, new satellite information, and updated security material.

Features

  • The book teaches data communications and networking to students without requiring heavy technical background while still providing challenges to more experienced students.
  • More than 700 figures provide complete, visual presentation of the material.
  • Many examples have been developed in each chapter to demonstrate the concepts.
  • An On-line Learning Center is available to provide extra material to both students and instructors. Some features of the on-line learning center include: PowerPoint Slides, Solutions, and Animated Figures.
  • Summaries at the end of each chapter emphasize the key points.
  • The practice set includes an extensive number of review questions, multiple choice questions, and extended exercises.
