The Networking: Principles, Protocols and PracticeBook Book Description

This is an ongoing effort to develop an open-source networking textbook that could be used for in-depth undergraduate or graduate networking courses.

Building on the successful top-down approach, it continues with an early emphasis on application-layer paradigms and application programming interfaces, encouraging a hands-on experience with protocols and networking concepts.

Networking today involves much more than standards specifying message formats and protocol behaviours – and it is far more interesting. This book focuses on describing emerging principles in a lively and engaging manner and then illustrate these principles with examples drawn from Internet architecture.
