The primary objective of this book is to teach the architectures, design principles, and troubleshooting techniques of a LAN. This will be imparted through the presentation of a broad scope of data and computer communication standards, real-world inter-networking techniques, architectures, hardware, software, protocols, technologies and services as they relate to the design, implementation and troubleshooting of a LAN. The logical and physical design of hardware and software is not the only process involved in the design and implementation of a LAN. The latter also encompasses many other aspects including making the business case, compiling the requirements, choosing the technology, planning for capacity, selecting the vendor, and weighing all the issues before the actual design begins.
Unified IP Internetworking is the best resource for building intranet and enterprise networks today. Using the newly revived Internet Protocol (IP) design, dynamic bandwidth allocation, traffic class identification, service level agreement, multiservice transport and quality of service are now all possible. This book examines the power and flexibility of the IP in meeting these and future challenges while providing step by step explanations and testing techniques for building a network.
