Douglas E. Douglas Comer , Ralph E. If you really want to understand how the Internet and other computer networks operate, start with Computer Networks and Internets, Third Edition. Comer, who helped build the Internet, presents an up-to-the-minute tour of the Internet and internetworking, from low-level data transmission wiring all the way up to Web and chat services and other Internet application software. The new edition contains extensive coverage of network programming, as well as authoritative introductions to many new Internet protocols and technologies, from CIDR addressing to Network Address Translation NAT. Comer explains every layer of the network protocol stack, showing exactly how facilities and services provided by one layer are used and extended in the next.

Computer Networks and Internets is appropriate for all introductory-to-intermediate courses in computer networking, the Internet, or Internet applications; readers need no background in networking, operating systems, or advanced mathematics. Leading networking authority Douglas Comer presents a wide-ranging, self-contained tour of the concepts, principles, and technologies that enable today's Internet to support applications ranging from web browsing to telephony and multimedia.
This Fifth Edition has been thoroughly reorganized, revised, and updated: it includes extensive new coverage of topics ranging from wireless protocols to network performance, while reducing or eliminating coverage of older protocols and technologies.
Comer begins by illuminating the applications and facilities offered by today's Internet. With these concepts and technologies established, he introduces several of the most important contemporary issues faced by network implementers and managers, including quality of service, Internet telephony, multimedia, network security, and network management.
Comer has carefully designed this book to support both top-down and bottom-up teaching approaches. Students need no background in operating systems, and no sophisticated math: Comer relies throughout on figures, drawings, examples, and analogies, not mathematical proofs. One of the researchers who contributed to the Internet as it was being formed in the late s and s, he was a member of the Internet Architecture Board, the group responsible for guiding the Internet's development.
Comer has consulted for industry on the design of computer networks. In addition to giving talks in US universities, each year Comer lectures to academics and networking professionals around the world. Recently, Comer has taught courses on networking, internetworking, computer architecture, and operating systems.
He has developed innovative labs that provide students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with operating systems, networks, and protocols. In addition to writing a series of best-selling technical books that have been translated into 16 languages, he served as the North American editor of the journal Software — Practice and Experience for 20 years.
