Radia Perlman’s Interconnections is recognized as a leading text on networking theory and practice. It provides authoritative and comprehensive information on general networking concepts, routing algorithms and protocols, addressing, and the mechanics of bridges, routers, switches, and hubs.

Interconnections: Bridges, Routers, Switches, and Internetworking Protocols, 2nd Edition

You will gain a deeper understanding of the range of solutions possible and find valuable information on protocols for which documentation is not readily available elsewhere. Written by the inventor of many of the algorithms that make switching and routing robust and efficient, Interconnections, Second Edition offers an expert’s insight into how and why networks operate as they do. Perlman describes all of the major networking algorithms and protocols in use today in clear and concise terms, while exploring the engineering trade-offs that the different approaches represent.

The book contains extensive coverage of such topics as: This book is, well, alright. This book was written in and anyone in networking very well knows networking technology today is incredibly different. Heck, in it was once thought possible you couldn’t saturate a T-1 line; thus, times have changed and this book just never kept up. However, it is still on the INE recommended reading list so I believe this is why the book continuously is sold but I think its fair to say the book has some excellent foundational knowledge for those who need it and for the rest of us, its kind of a distraction.

While this book was originally published when the general public often hadn’t heard of it, never mind had access to it, the concepts in this book are – if anything – painfully overlooked by many network administrators and managers. My first reading of this was difficult – as someone who was new to the protocols and mechanism it discusses, it was “one page forward, three pages back”, for many pages – but each page builds only upon information that’s been provided earlier, so it’s just a matter of re-reading that earlier part until the concept makes sense.

If you are responsible for designing or maintaining large, complex data networks, I assure you that the mental effort required to grasp the concepts in here will give you the ability to spot and prevent issues that can manifest themselves ways that are almost impossible to isolate, because the problem is at the very basic fabric of the network, which is rarely given the consideration it requires.

This book provides a thorough, easy-to-read introduction to the fundamentals of networking. The text starts with the simplest possible network and builds upon it until all the basic features of modern networks have been introduced. This book won’t tell you which buttons to push to set up a particular switch or router, but it will help you understand how any piece of networking equipment or software actually works, which is a huge help with troubleshooting. It also includes material on the more theoretical aspects of networking, such as a derivation of the spanning-tree algorithm.

I skipped those chapters, since I am content to use the algorithms built into modern networking equipment. My only critique of “Interconnections” is that the terminology is outdated, which makes it hard to map some of the concepts to the networking gear that’s currently in use.

Interconnections: Bridges, Routers, Switches, and Internetworking Protocols by Radia Perlman

For example, the book spends a lot of time explaining “bridges,” but I have never seen a box called a “bridge” this functionality is incorporated into modern switches. Don’t let that discourage you from buying this book-just be aware that you will need to supplement it with more recent material.

This is a great book for those interested in the details interconnectoins networks, particularly in comparisons of different protocols, and the different approaches they take to protocolss problems. The author’s style is protocoos familiar than most technical books and she freely gives her opinions of how the protocols came about and the pros and cons of design decisions. Pesonally, I like that ecition, but not all do. Well worth reading and having in your reference library. Don’t buy this, though, unless you already know things like the difference between IP and Ethernet addresses and terms like fouters layer and link layer.


Radia Perlman, author of this book, is one of these great people who pioneered the technology which we today know as the Internet. Her book no doubt should be one of the best in the industry to understand this technology, and so it is.

She is also famous for inventing the spanning tree protocol, on which today switches work in almost all major networks. She is an authority on the Internet technology and this makes her book an all time best book, both for reference purposes and for learning purposes. Anybody who wants to learn more about how the Internet works or networks work, this book is a must have. This is one of these books which never get old.

And this book is still newer. eeition
