recommended by our teachers as well and also by friends and has very good explanations for each topic. (Teja Suru Aug 28, 2014)
This new edition book is fun to read with Tanenbaum's sense of humor. He has many exercises which motivate and make people think deep into the problems. It is also a reference book (Rakesh Jan 23, 2014)
book is great for beginners really nice analysis of question and detailed explanation with nicely returned language....... (kalpish singhal Jun 13, 2014) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.
A contemporary, yet classic, introduction to today's key networking technologies
Computer Networks, Fifth Edition, is the ideal introduction to the networking field. This bestseller reflects the latest networking technologies with a special emphasis on wireless networking, including 802.11, 802.16, Bluetooth, and 3G cellular, paired with fixed-network coverage of ADSL, Internet over cable, gigabit Ethernet, MLPS, and peer-to-peer networks. Notably, this latest edition incorporates new coverage on 3G mobile phone networks, Fiber to the Home, RIFD, delay-tolerant networks, and 802.11 security, in addition to expanded material on Internet routing, multicasting, congestion control, quality of service, real-time transport, and content distribution.
Authors Andrew Tanenbaum and Davis Wetherall describe the inner facets of the network, exploring its functionality from underlying hardware to applications, including:
- Physical layer (e.g., copper, fiber, wireless, satellites, and Internet over cable)
- Data link layer (e.g., protocol principles, protocol verification, HDLC, and PPP)
- MAC Sublayer (e.g., gigabit Ethernet, 802.11, broadband wireless, and switching)
- Network layer (e.g., routing algorithms, congestion control, QoS, IPv4, and IPv6)
- Transport layer (e.g., socket programming, UDP, TCP, RTP, and network performance)
- Application layer (e.g., e-mail, the Web, PHP, wireless Web, MP3, and streaming audio)
- Network security (e.g., AES, RSA, quantum cryptography, IPsec, and Web security)
The book dissects and depicts the principles associated with each layer and then translates them through examples from the Internet and wireless networks.

If you're wondering why the Internet today is the way it is, why so many standards out there and how they are related (pros and cons), what inspired technology designers in the first place or what's the general approach of designing a communication protocol, this is the book for you.
It's unlike others that simply reorganize information from different sources, this book is the redevelopment after author's digestion.
The book's key strength is that it combines solid theoretical underpinnings and clear explanations with consideration of the non-technical aspects of networking. These include market acceptance (some wise words on why ISDN failed, for example), the politics of "standards" and day-to-day pragmatic "getting it done" issues.
Tanenbaum's broader consideration enables the book to avoid the trap of becoming an unworldly academic text. It gives "Computer Networks" its licence to function as an indispensable everyday working reference.
I work in the communications/networking industry and keep this book handy. I lend it to colleagues to photocopy the odd section, and they always end up buying their own copy. Enough said!
I gave this book a 9 for including some of the old and dying technologies that lack even instructional value, at the expense of newer technologies that are seeing wide deployment. Grist for the fourth edition, I guess :-)
The beauty of this book is that all of the explanations are very thorough, even for a beginner. The textbook format makes it the ideal reference guide for anyone setting up or maintaining a computer network. This book is a must-read for anyone studying for their MCSE.
This is without a doubt the most comprehensive reference on this subject I have ever found.
My computer networking professor used this book in our networking class. Although I didn't fully appreciate the book while I was in class (what student *DOES* like their text books?), but now that I'm out of school I'm seeing I have a very good grasp of exactly how networks work because of the breadth and detail this book offerd me. We also happened to use his operating system books in our OS class -- he's that good a author.
There's been many times that I - a software engineer - was able to hold a conversation with my friends who are network engineers at a local ISP company. I have Tanenbaum to thank for my knowledge. Excellent book.
Conclusion: When you don't have any basic in networking technology and you want to start it (For a course in university or for work), this Tanenbaum's book is a must.
