Computer Networks - Andrew.S.Tannenbaum

The purpose of this course is to introduce fundamental principles and concepts of computer networks. We will use a top-down approach to study the Internet Protocol stack. We will first study popular network applications such as Web, email, FTP, and P2P, then study communications services required to support these applications, and finally study how these communication services are implemented. Throughout this course, we will use the Internet's architecture and protocols to reinforce fundamentalcomputer networking principles.
