Written for technical professionals with little or no background in data communications, this covers practical aspects of common systems rather than design criteria. Practitioner Thompson has updated this to include the most recent advances in hardware, software, and applications, covering basic data communication concepts, communications models (including the ISO OSI model, the Internet model, the IEEE 802 model and application models), serial commercial standards (including EIA/TIA standards, interface signal functions and PC serial communications), local area networks, network software (including UNIX and Linux operating systems), industrial networks and field buses, wide area networks, internetworking including layer 2 and 3 devices and equipment), and security. Thompson also includes a comprehensive glossary, a number systems review and a review of media, making this a professional reference as well as a self-study guide and classroom text. The illustrations here are particularly clear and helpful. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
