Computer Networks, 5/e (IE-Paperback)

Andrew S. Tanenbaum , David J. Wetherall



Computer Networks, 5/e is appropriate for Computer Networking or Introduction to Networking courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, CIS, MIS, and Business Departments.  Tanenbaum takes a structured approach to explaining how networks work from the inside out. He starts with an explanation of the physical layer of networking, computer hardware and transmission systems; then works his way up to network applications. Tanenbaum's in-depth application coverage includes email; the domain name system; the World Wide Web (both client- and server-side); and multimedia (including voice over IP, Internet radio video on demand, video conferencing, and streaming media. Each chapter follows a consistent approach: Tanenbaum presents key principles, then illustrates them utilizing real-world example networks that run through the entire book--the Internet, and wireless networks, including Wireless LANs, broadband wireless and Bluetooth. The Fifth Edition includes a chapter devoted exclusively to network security.  The textbook is supplemented by a Solutions Manual, as well as a Website containing PowerPoint slides, art in various forms, and other tools for instruction, including a protocol simulator whereby students can develop and test their own network protocols.


《計算機網絡,第5版》適用於計算機科學、電機工程、CIS、MIS和商業部門的本科和研究生的計算機網絡或網絡介紹課程。 Tanenbaum以結構化的方式解釋網絡從內部到外部的工作原理。他從網絡的物理層、計算機硬件和傳輸系統的解釋開始,然後逐步介紹網絡應用。 Tanenbaum深入介紹了電子郵件、域名系統、網際網路(客戶端和服務器端)以及多媒體(包括IP語音、網絡廣播、視頻點播、視頻會議和流媒體)。每一章都遵循一致的方法:Tanenbaum介紹關鍵原則,然後通過運行整本書的實際範例網絡(包括互聯網和無線網絡,包括無線局域網、寬帶無線和藍牙)來說明這些原則。第五版還包括一章專門介紹網絡安全。教材還配有解答手冊,以及包含PowerPoint幻燈片、各種形式的圖片和其他教學工具的網站,包括一個協議模擬器,學生可以在其中開發和測試自己的網絡協議。
