This reorganization of "Data Communications and Networking, 7th Edition" focuses more strongly on the internet. It provides a streamlined text concentrated on the internet for use in internet-centric courses, e-commerce programmes, MBA courses and short courses.
This text is appropriate for those courses with an emphasis on e-commerce and the Internet, as well as short courses or MBA/IS courses that want a modern approach. Networking has changed dramatically over the past ten years. Most texts have focused on network layers and their concepts and then on how the different technologies are implemented; however with the number of viable technologies shrinking, it makes less sense to focus on concepts first and technologies second. Networking in the Internet Age first edition integrates the discussion of concepts and technologies so they appear in one place, organized by layers.
