Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book provides a diverse and solid foundation that will be
immensely beneficial to new network engineers, those looking for a
refresher or developers"
-- Alan Young, Google, Network Surveillance Team

"i haven't had time to read the manuscript completely. however, what i like about the book is it covers all the topics from basics to voip to mpls vpn to ssl and this is one of the key factor that separates this book. unlike other tcp/ip books which talk mostly about history this one talks about what is happening today. another great thing i like is the use of diagram and tools."
-- Amit KT, Network Engineer, Peak Web Consulting, SF, CA

"It looks like a very good primer for someone who is about to get serious about working in the networking field. The book describes several things that we take for granted like standards organizations. But if you are new to the industry it is good to be educated about how we arrive at standards."
-- Landon Scott, Channel SE, Juniper Networks

From the Back Cover

How modern networks actually operate, and how they have changed and evolved since the time of Vint Cerf, Bob Kahn, and W. Richard Stevens.

In 1994, W. Richard Stevens published a networking classic TCP/IP Illustrated .The model for that book was a show-and-tell approach to networking concepts. Walter Goralski's The Illustrated Network: How TCP/IP Works in a Modern Network takes this time-honored approach and modernizes it by creating not only a much larger and more complicated network, but also by taking into account all the networking advancements that have taken place since the mid-1990s -- namely the convergence of data, voice, video, and other services onto a single shared infrastructure.

  • New Modern Approach to Popular Topic Adopts the popular Stevens approach and modernizes it, giving the reader insights into the most up-to-date network equipment, operating systems, and routing protocols from MPLS, BGB, multicast, as well as the most recent network services and developments including IPSec, VPNs, and VoIP.
  • Shows and Tells Presents an "illustrated" explanation of how TCP/IP works with consistent examples from a working network configuration.
  • Over 330 Illustrations True to the title, there are 330 diagrams, screen shots, topology diagrams, and a unique repeating chapter opening diagram to reinforce concepts.
  • Based on Actual Networks A complete and modern network was assembled to write this book, with all the material coming from actual devices connected to and running on the network, bringing the captured TCP/IP packet traffic, not theory, into the basis for the book's examinations.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By F. M. Frazzini on May 3, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent entry level to strong intermediate level textbook on all the foundationally relevant aspects of Internet/TCP/IP networking. There is good coverage of "current" topics (as of 2009) like security, IPv6, and VOIP. The author is very experienced (40 years in the industry) which shows, and he has a nice style with good transitions, interesting questions that are later answered, and he even presents relevant and interesting history to help you understand the subjects. The best part about the book are the more than enough examples with diagrams/figures and tables that really help illustrate the concepts (thus the title.) I highly recommend this book for any network administrator, network student, and even for IT management.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I came across this book on a shelf in a chain book store (but bought it from Amazon!) and was immediately interested because it was a Networking book that did not assume Networking is synonymous with a specific networking vendor. Far too many _Networking_ books are written as if a particular networking vendor is the only way to explain networking concepts -- similar to the way too many programming books used to assume that _Programming_ was synonymous with _Windows Programming_. There certainly is a place for such books; however, there is also a place for books about networking that are far less vendor-specific.

Although I have not (yet) read the book through to the end cover, I am thoroughly enjoying the text.

Aside from being extremely well written, every discussion and example is based on a single, real and complete network, that is kept consistent throughout the text.

If you are looking for a broad yet "deep enough" explanation of the TCP/IP suite of protocols, I strongly recommend this book.

Good book. The author describes the simple aspects of networking before delving into more complex topics. I think it is very informative and complete. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the details of networking.
