Computer and Communication Networks, Second Edition, explains the modern technologies of networking and communications, preparing you to analyze and simulate complex networks, and to design cost-effective networks for emerging requirements. Offering uniquely balanced coverage of basic and advanced topics, it teaches through case studies, realistic examples and exercises, and intuitive illustrations.

Nader F. Mir establishes a solid foundation in basic networking concepts; TCP/IP schemes; wireless and LTE networks; Internet applications, such as Web and e-mail; and network security. Then, he delves into both network analysis and advanced networking protocols, VoIP, cloud-based multimedia networking, SDN, and virtualized networks.

In this new edition, Mir provides updated, practical, scenario-based information that many networking books lack, offering a uniquely effective blend of theory and implementation. Drawing on extensive field experience, he presents many contemporary applications and covers key topics that other texts overlook, including P2P and voice/video networking, SDN, information-centric networking, and modern router/switch design.

Students, researchers, and networking professionals will find up-to-date, thorough coverage of

Packet switching Internet protocols (including IPv6) Networking devices Links and link interfaces LANs, WANs, and Internetworking Multicast routing, and protocols Wide area wireless networks and LTE Transport and end-to-end protocols Network applications and management Network security Network queues and delay analysis Advanced router/switch architecture QoS and scheduling Tunneling, VPNs, and MPLS All-optical networks, WDM, and GMPLS Cloud computing and network virtualization Software defined networking (SDN) VoIP signaling Media exchange and voice/video compression Distributed/cloud-based multimedia networks Mobile ad hoc networks Wireless sensor networks
