Indeholder et væld af oplysninger om både teori og praksis. Glimrende bog. Dog uden helt skarp korrekturlæsning, fx er der på side xii en 10.3 Summary, som nok skulle være 10.4. Men den slags fejl viser jo bare at der er redigeret i bogen helt frem til deadline.
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.
If you've ever wanted to know more information than you could possibly require on Computer Networks, including the history of just about every aspect of them, then this book is for you. Granted, the edition I read, the 4th, was published about 7 years ago, when handheld devices that connected to the internet were not ubiquitous. Likewise, other aspects of the book do not necessarily represent the "bleeding edge" of network technology.
But, this book will definitely satisfy your hunger with computer networks, and you may find yourself gorged with information, as sometimes it borders on giving you a little more information than you actually need. Recommended for those interested in the theory and practice of computer networks.
