Applied Data Communications and Networks

The usage of data communications and computer networks are ever increasing. It is one of the few technological areas which brings benefits to most of the countries and the peoples of the world. Without it many industries could not exist. It is the objective of this book to discuss data communications in a readable form that students and professionals all over the world can understand. As much as possible the text uses diagrams to illustrate key points. Most currently available data communications books take their view-point from either a computer scientists top-down approach or from an electronic engineers bottom-up approach. This book takes a practical approach and supports it with a theoretical background to create a textbook which can be used by electronic engineers, computer engineers, computer scientists and industry professionals. It discusses most of the current and future key data communications technologies, including:

the analysis of a real-life university Ethernet and Token Ring computer network, showing how interconnected networks communicate;

Link to my Research page

the analysis of state-of-the-art technologies such as FDDI and ATM with reference to a practical Metropolitan Area Network;

Link to my Research page

practical data communications programs, in C, for serial communications;

Link to my Research page

practical examples of communications over the Internet;

Link to my Research page

the necessary information on how to set-up computers for TCP/IP communications. ;

The text also contains some multiple choice exercises which can be used by a lecturer to revise the material presented or can be used at the beginning of a tutorial session.
