Enthusiastic Comments About
``Finally, a book that helps reunite the disciplines of computer engineering
and network engineering.''
- Michael Hathaway, Austin Ventures
``A sturdy and clear explanation of the intricacies of designing and using
I expect it to become the standard textbook on the subject.''
- Craig Partridge, Chairman of ACM SIGCOMM
``Professor Comer has done it again.
This is another comprehensive book from him \*- this time on
designing network systems with a specific focus on the emerging
area of network processors.
Engineers and students will definitely find this book valuable.''
``This book is required reading for anyone who wants to understand what
goes on inside the plethora of magic boxes that make the Internet work.''
- Larry Peterson, Princeton University
``The author shows an amazing understanding of the subtle issues.''
- Paul Schmitt, Calix Incorporated
``This book is excellent: clearly written, easy to understand,
``Network Systems Design Using Network Processors has been
a boon in both my professional network processing life and my
part-time teaching career.
Colleagues, undergraduates and graduate students alike appreciate
its excellent fusion of network processing design principles,
current architectures, and architectural directions.
Dr. Comer's text worked very well the first semester I taught
from it, and I am looking forward to using it again this fall.''
- Dale Parson, Agere Systems
``Comer discusses all of the crucial architectural and economic decisions
that drive modern network systems design today.
Network Systems Design will be extremely helpful to engineers
building those systems, as well as anyone interested in understanding
how they work.''
- Paul Phillips, Nauticus Networks
