Introduction to computer networking

Gigabit Ethernet? That’s the same as fast Ethernet, with faster clock speeds, isn’t it? Actually it’s not; depending on the physical media, there may be differences in encoding schemes and signaling logic levels. This book is full of interesting information like that, with concise details about each variant of the technology...
