About the Book

ISBN: 9789351197560 Pages: 432 Authors: Mahendra Mehra, DTES

The Computer Networks book helps you to understand the basic concepts of a computer network and how data communication is performed
by using a computer network. The book concentrates on the OSI reference model, including the major issues and related protocols studies in
the various layers of the OSI model, such as physical, data link, network, transport, session, presentation, and application. Moreover, the book
provides a fundamental knowledge of the various aspects of computer networking and is designed from the engineering perspective.

In this book, you will learn about

Computer networks; advantages and disadvantages of computer networks; uses of computer networks; types of computer network; Internet; network
edge; network core; circuit switched network; packet switched network; message switched network; network structure; transmission media; delay, loss, and
throughput in packet switched network; protocol layers and their service models; OSI reference model; TCP/IP model; and history of computer networks
Principles of computer applications, World Wide Web (WWW), architectural overview of WWW, Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) used in WWW,
Electronic Mail (E-Mail), architecture and services of e-mail, Domain Name System (DNS), domain name resolution and domain resource records, and socket
Transport service, transport service primitives, elements of transport protocols, User Datagram Protocol (UDP), principle of reliable data transfer,
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), establishing and terminating a TCP connection, difference between TCP and UDP protocols, congestion control, and
congestion control in TCP
Network layer design issues, datagram network, virtual circuit network, comparison between datagram and virtual-circuit networks, basics of router, routing
algorithms, congestion control algorithm in the network layer, IP version 4 protocol (IPv4), IP version 6 protocol (IPv6), comparison between IPv4 and IPv6,
and Internet control protocols
Functions of the data link layer, error detection and correction, error-detecting and error-correcting codes, ALOHA, Carrier Sense Multiple Access (CSMA),
collision free protocols, limited contention protocol, Wavelength Division Multiple Access (WDMA) protocol, wireless LAN protocols, LAN addressing,
Ethernet, and switches
