Interconnections, Second Edition is about what goes on inside the boxes that move data around the Internet. These boxes are variously called bridges, routers, switches, and hubs. protocols exist, and it is hard to get information about them. J. Shoch, “Internetwork Naming, Addressing, and Routing,”.

Interconnections: Bridges, Routers, Switches, and Internetworking Protocols, 2nd Edition

The author’s style is more familiar than most technical books and she freely gives her opinions of how the protocols came about and the pros and cons of protlcols decisions. Sign Up Already have an access code? My only complaint is that the final chapter could have become something more extensive, and something that the computing world needs more than just another book of packet diagrams.

About the Author s. If you are responsible for designing or maintaining large, complex data networks, I assure you that the mental effort required to grasp the concepts in here will give you the ability to spot and prevent issues that can manifest themselves ways that are almost impossible to isolate, because the problem is at the very basic fabric of the network, which is rarely given the consideration it requires.

If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. 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.


Preview — Interconnections by Radia Perlman. Roadmap to the Book. 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.

She is the creator of the spanning tree algorithm upon which bridges switches are based, and the algorithms that allow robust and efficient link state routing, upon which all modern link state routing protocols such as IS-IS, OSPF, and PNNI are based.

Interconnections: Bridges, Routers, Switches, and Internetworking Protocols by Radia Perlman

But it is solidly grounded in real-life experience — Perlman has spent years designing and implementing network protocols and algorithms most notably the spanning tree algorithm used in most bridges and uses that experience to provide practical illustrations of the theory. Somehow, the best networking book aside from “Communications Networks” had eluded me Interspersed among the text are boxes containing ‘real-world bad protocols.

This book won’t tell you which buttons to push to set up a particular switch or router, but it will help you understand how any piece of networking equipment or software actually works, which is a huge help with troubleshooting.
