Data communications and networking are changing the way we do business and the way

we live. Business decisions have to be made ever more quickly, and the decision makers

require immediate access to accurate information. Why wait a week for that report

from Germany to arrive by mail when it could appear almost instantaneously through

computer networks? Businesses today rely on computer networks and inter networks.

But before we ask how quickly we can get hooked up, we need to know how networks

operate, what types of technologies are available, and which design best fills which set

of needs.

The development of the personal computer brought about tremendous changes for

business, industry, science, and education. A similar revolution is occurring in data

communications and networking. Technological advances are making it possible for

communications links to carry more and faster signals. As a result, services are evolving

to allow use of this expanded capacity. For example, established telephone services

such as conference calling, call waiting, voice mail, and caller ID have been extended.

Research in data communications and networking has resulted in new technolo-
gies. One goal is to be able to exchange data such as text, audio, and video from all

points in the world. We want to access the Internet to download and upload information

quickly and accurately and at any time.

This chapter addresses four issues: data communications, networks, the Internet,

and protocols and standards. First we give a broad definition of data communications.

Then we define networks as a highway on which data can travel. The Internet is dis-
cussed as a good example of an internetwork (i.e., a network of networks). Finally, we

discuss different types of protocols, the difference between protocols and standards,

and the organizations that set those standards.

Features of the Book Data Communication And Networking By Behruzon A. Forouzan 4TH Edition

Several features of this text are designed to make it particularly easy for students to

understand data communications and networking.


We have used the five-layer Internet model as the framework for the text not only because

a thorough understanding ofthe model is essential to understanding most current network-
ing theory but also because it is based on a structure of interdependencies: Each layer

builds upon the layer beneath it and supports the layer above it. In the same way, each con-
cept introduced in our text builds upon the concepts examined in the previous sections. The

Internet model was chosen because it is a protocol that is fully implemented.

This text is designed for students with little or no background in telecommunica-
tions or data communications. For this reason, we use a bottom-up approach. With this

approach, students learn first about data communications (lower layers) before learning

about networking (upper layers).

Visual Approach

The book presents highly technical subject matter without complex formulas by using a

balance of text and figures. More than 700 figures accompanying the text provide a

visual and intuitive opportunity for understanding the material. Figures are particularly

important in explaining networking concepts, which are based on connections and

transmission. Both of these ideas are easy to grasp visually.

Highlighted Points

We emphasize important concepts in highlighted boxes for quick reference and imme-
diate attention.



Examples and Applications

When appropriate, we have selected examples to reflect true-to-life situations. For exam-
ple, in Chapter 6 we have shown several cases of telecommunications in current telephone


Recommended Reading

Each chapter includes a list of books and sites that can be used for further reading.

Key Terms

Each chapter includes a list of key terms for the student.


Each chapter ends with a summary of the material covered in that chapter. The sum-
mary provides a brief overview of all the important points in the chapter.

Practice Set

Each chapter includes a practice set designed to reinforce and apply salient concepts. It

consists of three parts: review questions, exercises, and research activities (only for

appropriate chapters). Review questions are intended to test the student’s first-level under-
standing of the material presented in the chapter. Exercises require deeper understanding

of the material Research activities are designed to create motivation for further study.


The appendixes are intended to provide quick reference material or a review of materi-
als needed to understand the concepts discussed in the book.

Glossary and Acronyms

The book contains an extensive glossary and a list of acronyms.
