This latest release of Interconnections is a competent update of a networking classic. Radia Perlman explains hundreds of details about getting computers--and computer networks--to talk to one another smoothly, accurately, and efficiently. Perlman, inventor of the spanning-tree bridging algorithm, covers the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) reference model, bridges, switches, hubs, Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), plus connection-based and connectionless networks. She also does a great job of explaining the underpinnings of internetworking protocols, including packet format, addressing, routing (both generically and in terms of RIP, RTMP, OSPF, and other protocols), and security. There's plenty of IPv6 information here, mostly from a theoretical vantage point.
The best parts of Perlman's approach to her subject are the little thought experiments that explain why various aspects of internetworking behave the way they do. For example, Perlman talks about Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) discovery by presenting four different hypotheses for figuring out MTU. For each possible solution, she discusses strengths, weaknesses, and real-life considerations. She applies this method to dozens of other problems and phenomena, making Interconnections a very close approximation of learning by experiment. --David Wall
Topics covered: Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) reference model, bridges, switches, hubs, Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), and internetworking protocols.
Radia Perlman's Interconnections is recognized as a leading text on networking theory and practice. It provides authoritative and comprehensive information on general networking concepts, routing algorithms and protocols, addressing, and the mechanics of bridges, routers, switches, and hubs. This Second Edition is expanded and updated to cover the newest developments in the field, including advances in switching and bridge technology, VLANs, Fast Ethernet, DHCP, ATM, and IPv6. Additional new topics include IPX, AppleTalk, and DECnet. You will gain a deeper understanding of the range of solutions possible and find valuable information on protocols for which documentation is not readily available elsewhere. Written by the inventor of many of the algorithms that make switching and routing robust and efficient, Interconnections, Second Edition offers an expert's insight into how and why networks operate as they do. Perlman describes all of the major networking algorithms and protocols in use today in clear and concise terms, while exploring the engineering trade-offs that the different approaches represent.The book contains extensive coverage of such topics as: *The spanning tree algorithm *The differences between bridges, routers, and switches *Virtual LANs (VLANs) and Fast Ethernet *Addressing and packet formats for IP, IPv6, IPX, CLNP, AppleTalk, and DECnet *Autoconfiguration of addresses; strategies in various protocol suites *Routing protocols, including RIP, IS-IS, OSPF, PNNI, NLSP, and BGP *Layer 3 multicast protocols, including IGMP, DVMRP, MOSPF, CBT, PIM, BGMP, Simple Multicast, and Express *Sabotage-proof routing *Protocol design folklore 0201634481B04062001 Alle Produktbeschreibungen

If you're used to the traditional dry and impersonal textbook style, this book will come as a refreshing surprise. You will get lots of facts -- and also opinions. If Radia thinks some particular technique is not a good thing, she'll simply say "I think this is a mistake". Nice.
The book covers both recent practice and historical background. Learning how these protocols evolved will help the reader understand why they now look the way they do. And discussions of "lessons learned the hard way" shows what design principles are important for reliability. The final chapter "Protocol design folklore" is a valuable addition to this second edition.
What I liked best about Interconnections was being consistently able to understand what the author was saying. While an electrical engineer might get a little more out of her discussions than I did I never felt locked out because my undergraduate education was in the liberal arts.
The material she presents is not always easy. In fact, Radia notes, "Anyone who isn't confused about when routers become EGP neighbors and what the rules are for configuring routers to initiate being EGP neighbors does not understand EGP" (p. 428). And yet the reader who is willing to concentrate and follow her lead can understand everything covered.
Even though this is a marvelously written book it is not for everyone. I would hesitate to recommend it to a network technician wanting to understand networks more fully. While I think every computer science student should spend two semesters working through these 18 chapters, memorizing the Glossary, and discussing the suggested homework problems the book is overkill for the ordinary MCSE candidate wanting to master Networking Essentials for a Microsoft certification exam. Interconnections is foundational reading for those who would design protocols or vendor equipment designed to interoperate with protocols but it is a bit much for someone who just wants to know which port to plug the cable into.
While Interconnections is not for everyone, I think it is essential reading for anyone who makes purchase decisions in an enterprise network. Without a firm understanding of bridges, routers, switches, and internetworking protocols they become far too vulnerable to sales techniques. And Interconnections is an essential reference for the Network Analyst. Radia notes that in the first edition of her book she assumed people would read the RFCs to get details that she omitted but they didn't. As someone who has spent some time trying to digest RFCs I am grateful that she bulked up the Second Edition with what she thought people needed to know. I can figure out what she writes but frequently feel I have wasted the effort when trying to get what I need out of the RFCs. Interconnections is a convenient one stop resource for researching packet headers and the various control messages that analyzer software may capture while sniffing a network to identify problems.
Interconnections, Second Edition is 150 pages larger than the First Edition published in 1992. Radia has reorganized, rewrote, added examples, included new protocols and more fully documented details to make it a better reference book. The Glossary was expanded from 4 pages to 10 but that was not enough. Radia does a good job of defining terms in the body of the book the first time they are used but not again in later chapters. When they are not in the Glossary it leaves the reader having to page around looking for the first definition. And the Index shrank from 15 pages to 5 between the First and Second Editions and thus became less useful for finding obscure terms.
Radia Perlman proposes that, "Before we design a solution, it's often useful to define the problem to be solved" (p. 505). To explain a protocol in the book she typically presents a list of problems and then walks through adding features to an algorithm to solve one or more of them. She discusses how adding one feature may create new problems. It is fascinating to do this exercise in relationship to real world protocols that are used everyday and to realize that some problems could be relieved if standards bodies could more readily agree. And that brings up one of the most enjoyable aspects of Interconnections, Radia sharing anecdotes and criticisms from years of participating on the Internet Engineering Task Force.
One take home message for me from reading Interconnections is that it is always best to keep it simple. Added complexity rarely pays off in anything but trouble. Radia opined, "I think people should be grateful if their packets get there at all" (p.202) rather than jumping through a lot of hoops to insure optimal routing. This is a good message for those who build internetworking protocols as well as those who just plug cables into ports.
