Book Summary of Communication Networks: Fundamental Concepts And Key Architectures,Leon Garcia 

Key Features

The Big Picture is presented first in chapter one and two with a discussion of network-based applications and services such as the WWW, email, and home video entertainment. The essential functions in the operation of a network are discussed, and examples are given hat motivate the notion of layering, and the OSI Reference model.

  • Exposing students to the big picture will help them learn and apply the information more readily.
  • Do your students have a difficult time seeing "The Big Picture?"
  • Network performance is introduced as an integral part of network design and operation. Quantitative examples are used to show the tradeoffs involved in various situations.
  • How important are quantitative examples of network performance?
  • This helps students develop an intuitive feel for performance issues by delving into the underlying mathematics. Other texts eliminate much of the quantitative discussion of network performance.
  • The Berkeley API sockets are introduced in an optional section in Chapter 2 and socket programming exercises are included. Telnet-based exercises to demonstrate the operation of various TCP/IP protocols are also included.
  • Do cover socket programming in your course?
  • This will be useful to those professors who wish to introduce socket programming in the course.
  • Many figures, network graphs, time diagrams, performance curves, etc. are found throughout the text. These diagrams are essential to effectively convey concepts in networking. A set of PowerPoint presentations, upon which the book's figures are based, is available to adopters of the text via the web site for the book.
  • Would you use power points if they were available?
  • The introduction in Chapter 1 has been simplified by reducing the number of concepts introduced in the discussion of network evolution.
