    Network Evolution and Applications provides a comprehensive, integrative, and easy approach to understanding the technologies, concepts, and milestones in the history of networking. It provides an overview of different aspects involved in the networking arena that includes the core technologies that are essential for communication and important in our day-to-day life. It throws some light on certain past networking concepts and technologies that have been revolutionary in the history of science and technology and have been highly impactful. It expands on various concepts like Artificial Intelligence, Software Defined Networking, Cloud Computing, and Internet of Things, which are very popular at present.

    This book focuses on the evolutions made in the world of networking. One can’t imagine the world without the Internet today; with the Internet and the present- day networking, distance doesn’t matter at all. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a tough time worldwide, with global lockdown, locked homes, empty streets, stores without consumers, and offices with no or fewer staff. Thanks to the modern digital networks, the culture of work from home (WFH) or working remotely with the network/Internet connection has come to the fore, with even school and university classes going online. Although WFH is not new, the COVID-19 pandemic has given it a new look, and industries are now willfully exploring WFH to extend it in the future. The aim of this book is to present the timeline of networking to show the developments made and the milestones that were achieved due to these developments.
