5 Simplified Communications Model - Diagram Chapter 1 Introduction
6 Communications Tasks Transmission system utilization Addressing InterfacingRouting Signal generationRecovery SynchronizationMessage formatting Exchange managementSecurity Error detection and correction Network management Flow control
7 Networking Business Applications Home Applications Mobile Users Social Issues Point to point communication not usually practical —Devices are too far apart —Large set of devices would need impractical number of connections Solution is a communications network —Wide Area Network (WAN) —Local Area Network (LAN)
8 Classification of interconnected processors by scale Classification of interconnected processors by scale.
9 Protocols zUsed for communications between entities in a system zMust speak the same language
10 Design Issues for the Layers Addressing Error Control Flow Control Multiplexing Routing
11 Reference Models The TCP/IP reference model.
12 Hybrid Model The hybrid reference model to be used in this unit.
13 Example Networks The Internet Connection-Oriented Networks: X.25, Frame Relay, and ATM Ethernet: 802.3 Wireless LANs: 802:11 Other networks PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) GSM and UMTS
14 IEEE 802 Standards The 802 working groups. The important ones are marked with *. The ones marked with are hibernating. The one marked with † gave up.
