About this book

Introduction

The object of this book is to cover most of the currently relevant areas of data communications and networks. These include: 

  • Communications protocols (especially TCP/IP)
  • Networking (especially in Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, FDDI and ATM)
  • Networking operating systems (especially in Windows NT, Novell NetWare and UNIX)
  • Communications programs (especially in serial communications, parallel communications and TCP/IP)
  • Computer hardware (especially in PC hardware, serial communications and parallel communication)
The book thus splits into 15 different areas, these are: 

  • General data compression (Chapters 2 and 3)
  • Video, images and sound (Chapters 4-11 )
  • Error coding and encryption (Chapters 12-17)
  • TCP/IP, WWW, Internets and Intranets (Chapters 18-20 and 23)
  • Electronic Mail (Chapter 21 )
  • HTML (Chapters 25 and 26)
  • Java (Chapters 27-29)
  • Communication Programs (Chapters 20, 29 and 49)
  • Network Operating Systems (Chapters 31-34)
  • LANs/WANs (Chapters 35, 38-46)
  • Serial Communications (Chapters 47 and 48)
  • Parallel Communications (Chapters 50-52)
  • Local Communications (Chapters 53-57)
  • Routing and Protocols (Chapters 36 and 37)
  • Cables and connectors (Chapters 58--60)

Many handbooks and reference guides on the market contain endless tables and mathematics, or are dry to read and contain very little insight in their subject area. I have tried to make this book readable, but also contain key information which can be used by professionals.
