Purdue University Which Book? Which Book? ¾ Unfortunately, in my opinion there is really no recent textbook that I can follow to teach this course. ¾ There have been two decent books on this subject in the past: ¾ “Telecommunication Networks” by Mischa Schwartz. ¾ “Data Networks” by D. Bertsekas and R. Gallagher ¾ Both books are quite old and do not treat the latest developments in networking. ¾ We will use the book by Schwartz as the main textbook and the book by Leon Garcia and Widjija as a secondary text. However, the course notes (created from various books and papers) and handouts will probably be the most important. ¾ Goal: Stress principles and follow them up with examples from current networking solutions.
