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
is the right book at the right time.
Upon seeing the book, friends who have recently entered the field
of network processors invariably say something like, `I wish I'd
had this book nine months ago!'
It is an excellent fusion of network processing design principles,
current architectures, and architectural directions.
It is sure to become the standard text for this field the minute
it hits the shelves.''
- 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
