Thousands of non-technical professionals and sophisticated Web and computer users are looking for a deeper understanding of networks and the Internet -- but most books on the subject are either too technical or too superficial. In this book, leading networking consultant Uyless Black draws on his renowned introductory course on networking, presenting the fundamentals in simple, non-technical terms any intelligent reader can understand -- without compromising accuracy. Black begins with the absolute basics, explaining the differences (and similarities) between human and machine communications, and between analog and digital communications. He introduces the key concepts and characteristics of voice and data traffic, demonstrating how connections are made and maintained in networks, and how networks have been integrated into the global Internet. Among the topics covered: analog and digital signaling systems, routing, the Web, network identification schemes such as IP addressing and the Domain Name System, the role of Internet Service Providers, and much more. For a wide range of professionals and sophisticated laypersons who want to cut through the buzzwords and complexity -- and truly understand networking and the Internet.
