Distinguished Engineer Brian Petersen reveals patterns in networking protocols that have emerged over the past decades. It’s fascinating reading about networking theories, operations, protocols, and practices from the perspective of the hardware that does the work of actually forwarding all of those packets. Publication Praise “Today, massive compute problems such as machine learning are being tackled by specialized chips (GPUs, TPUs). So, how will specialized hardware handle the massive bandwidths from IoT devices to Mega-Scale Data Centers and equally massive bandwidths from those MSDCs to hand-helds? Here is just the book to find out: every time I open it I learn something new, something I didn’t know. Brian Petersen has taken a thoroughly modern snapshot of how it all comes together.” - Dr. Kireeti Kompella, SVP and CTO Engineering, Juniper Networks “Brian Petersen has accomplished something quite remarkable with this book he has distilled complex and seemingly disparate networking protocols and concepts into an eminently understandable framework. This book serves as both an excellent reference and as a learning tool for individuals from a broad range of networking disciplines.” - Jean-Marc Frailong, Chief Architect, Juniper Networks
