This textbook is adapted from the second edition of Networking. This third volume has been revised and reorganized around the needs of advanced networking students. This book assumes that the students have been introduced to the basics of computer networking. Throughout the text, the students are introduced to more advanced computer networking concepts. This involves network infrastructure design, advanced router configuration, network security, analyzing data traffic, Internet routing, and Voice over IP.
