The Internet Protocol (IP) supports the interconnection of multiple networking technologies into a single logical internetwork. This single volume introduces all of the IP and related protocols in sufficient detail to bring the reader up to a working level. The book provides a broad picture, showing all of the common Internet protocols and how they fit together. The Internet and Its Protocols provides more than an overview of the established protocols, but examines the purpose and function of each, and provides details of the messages used by the protocols, including byte-by-byte descriptions and message flow examples. At a time when everyone is looking to broaden their knowledge and personal marketability, and when there is an increasing convergence of technologies making IP more relevant than ever, this book is aimed at a broad cross section of the networking industry.
