Abstract

In this chapter, we examine the communications software needed to interconnect computers, workstations, servers, and other devices across networks. Then, we look at some of the networks in contemporary use. This chapter focuses exclusively on wired networks. Wireless networks are examined elsewhere, such as in the chapter “Mobile Operating Systems,” which has an extensive discussion on wireless networks.
