TCP/IP Tutorial and Technical Overview is an exceptionally complete, easy-to-understand, and up-to-date guide to the protocols that drive the Internet. Ideal for beginners—and for networking professionals who want to deepen their understanding—this book covers the entire TCP/IP suite, including emerging protocols that address the Internet's key challenges.
The authors—an expert team of IBM TCP/IP instructors and consultants—begin by introducing TCP/IP's fundamental goals, roles, components, and underlying concepts. They survey today's core TCP/IP application protocols, from DNS to HTTP, SMTP to RTP, as well as protocols designed for advanced wireless and multimedia applications.
The book includes detailed coverage of the latest trends in networking and infrastructure, including Quality of Service, MPLS, security, IP mobility, IP telephony, and IPv6. The authors also introduce leading tools for maximizing availability and scalability in IBM and Cisco environments, including IBM Sysplex Distributor, Cisco MultiNode Load Balancing, and OS/390 DNS/WLM.
