Management and Survivability Hui Zang Limited preview – D rated it it was amazing Aug 27, Written by the inventor of many of the algorithms that make switching and routing robust and efficient, Interconnections, Second Edition offers an expert’s insight into how and why intrnetworking operate as they do.


Perlman describes all of the major networking algorithms and protocols in use today in clear and concise terms, while exploring the engineering trade-offs that the different approaches represent.

But we’re stuck with it. 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 interconnectiobs 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.

It solves only whatever it happens to solve rather than providing a general-purpose solution.

She is also co-author of Network Security: Skin care Face Body.

She is also fun to read, being prepared to laugh at things that deserve it and to offer personal opinions, sometimes quite bluntly. The author’s style is more familiar than most technical books and she freely gives her opinions of how the protocols came about and the pros and cons of design decisions.

Interconnections (Radia Perlman) – book review

Other editions – View all Interconnections: Please fill in a complete birthday Enter a valid birthday. My only critique of “Interconnections” is that the terminology is outdated, which makes it hard to map some of the concepts to the networking gear that’s currently in use.

It also includes material on the more theoretical aspects of networking, such as a derivation of the spanning-tree algorithm. There are no internetworoing topics on this book yet. Don’t have an account?

Both of her books were listed in the top 10 most useful networking reference books in the March, issue of Network Magazine. Don’t buy this, though, unless you already know things like the difference between IP and Interconnectoins addresses and terms like network layer and link layer.

For example, the book spends a lot of time explaining “bridges,” but I have never seen a box called a “bridge” this functionality is incorporated into modern switches.
