Interspersed among the text are boxes containing ‘real-world bad protocols. Not only is this a great book, but it’s a book no other author could write; almost every chapter is full of Perlman’s charming anecdotes that tell an often unspoken story of why things became as they are.

Eric Falbe rated it it was amazing Mar 02, She is also famous for inventing the spanning tree protocol, on which today switches work in almost all major networks. Scott rated it it was amazing Apr 09, Dave Bremer rated it it was amazing Jun 14, This is a great book for those interested in the details of networks, particularly in comparisons of different protocols, and the different approaches they take to networking problems.

You cannot call yourself a network engineer if you have not read this book.

Pesonally, I like that style, but not all do. Joe Green rated it it was amazing Jul 18, The bulk of Interconnections may be too detailed for most network administrators or programmers, but those without an interest in the theory may want to track down a copy interconnectoins for the last two chapters.

Click on a series title to see the full list of products in the series. My first reading of this was difficult – as someone who was new to the protocols and mechanism it discusses, it was “one page forward, three pages back”, for many pages – but each page builds only upon information that’s been provided earlier, so it’s just a matter of re-reading that earlier part until the concept makes sense.

Private Communication in a Public World. She holds about 50 patents and a Ph. She is the creator of the spanning tree algorithm upon which bridges switches are based, and the algorithms that allow robust and efficient link state routing, upon which all modern link state routing protocols such as IS-IS, OSPF, and PNNI are based.

The book contains extensive coverage of such topics as: Hardcoverpages. If you are responsible for designing or maintaining large, complex data networks, I assure you that the mental effort required to grasp the concepts in here will give you the ability to spot and prevent issues that can manifest themselves ways that are almost impossible to isolate, because the problem is at the very basic fabric of the network, which is rarely given the consideration it requires.


My only critique of “Interconnections” is that the terminology is outdated, which makes it hard to map some of the concepts to the networking gear that’s currently in use.
