In order to work with today's networks that handle integrated text, data, and interactive voice and video, you must possess a thorough understanding of switches and the newest technologies that make sophisticated network services possible. "Building Switched Networks" provides a comprehensive, technical survey of the networking technologies that comprise the core of evolving LAN and WAN infrastructures. This book gives you essential background information, clear descriptions of relevant technologies, and an understanding of how those technologies will be employed throughout networks in the near future. In particular, the text focuses on developments that support our increasing demand for network bandwidth--multilayer switching, delivery guarantees, and multicasting--and examines performance issues, resource allocation, network policy, and network services. Using a ground-up approach, the book begins with network demands, examines various kinds of available switches, and progresses to the state-of-the-art technologies that are quickly permeating our networking infrastructure. Specifically, you will learn about: Virtual LANs and the 802.1Q and 802.1p standards Layer-2, Layer-3, and Layer-4 switching The emerging Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) standard Quality of Service (QoS), delivery guarantees based on specified parameters, and resource management Class of Service (COS) priority queuing techniques IP multicast--a key technology for enabling networks to scale Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that formalize service characteristics Network Policy, with a discussion of Directory Enabled Networking (DEN) and the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Emerging sophisticated network services made possible by the above technologies, including Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and Voice over IP (VoIP) "Building Switched Networks" then widens the scope of discussion beyond the details of these technologies to examine the demands that will be placed on networks in the future and successful management strategies for meeting those demands. 0201379538B04062001

A detailed examination of interior routing protocols -- completely updated in a new edition A complete revision of the best-selling first edition--widely considered a premier text on TCP/IP routing protocols A core textbook for CCIE preparation and a practical reference for network designers, administrators, and engineers Includes configuration and troubleshooting lessons that would cost thousands to learn in a classroom and numerous real-world examples and case studies Praised in its first edition for its approachable style and wealth of information, this new edition provides readers a deep understanding of IP routing protocols, teaches how to implement these protocols using Cisco routers, and brings readers up to date protocol and implementation enhancements. Routing TCP/IP, Volume 1, Second Edition, includes protocol changes and Cisco features that enhance routing integrity, secure routers from attacks initiated through routing protocols, and provide greater control over the propagation of routing information for all the IP interior routing protocols. Routing TCP/IP, Volume 1, Second Edition, provides a detailed analysis of each of the IP interior gateway protocols (IGPs). Its structure remains the same as the best-selling first edition, though information within each section is enhanced and modified to include the new developments in routing protocols and Cisco implementations. What's New In This Edition? The first edition covers routing protocols as they existed in 1998. The new book updates all covered routing protocols and discusses new features integrated in the latest version of Cisco IOS Software. IPv6, its use with interior routing protocols, and its interoperability and integration with IPv4 are also integrated into this book. Approximately 200 pages of new information are added to the main text, with some old text removed. Additional exercise and solutions are also included.

Focusing on backhaul from a radio network viewpoint, Mobile Backhaul presents IP/MPLS/Ethernet (Internet Protocol/Multiprotocol Label Switching) backhaul network technologies and solutions for 3GPP mobile network systems such as LTE (Long Term Evolution), 3G/HSPA (High Speed Packet Access) and 2G/GPRS (General Packet Radio Service). It combines perspectives on mobile networks and transport network technologies, focusing on mobile backhaul specific functionalities, which are essential in building modern cost efficient packet networks for mobile systems, IP, MPLS and Carrier Ethernet. The key functions required for this process, Synchronization, Resiliency, Quality of Service and Security, are also explained. The reader benefits from a view of networking technology from a radio network viewpoint, which is specific to this application, as well from a data centre and more IT–oriented perspective. This book bridges the gap between radio and backhaul viewpoints to provide a holistic understanding. Organized into two parts, the book gives an advanced introduction to the principles of the topic before moving on to more specialized areas. Part 1 gives a network level overview, with the purpose of presenting the mobile network application and its key characteristics for the backhaul. This section also presents the key networking technologies that are most relevant for the radio network, and solutions for mobile operator owned and leased service mobile backhaul cases. Part 2 offers selected case studies in Synchronization, Resiliency, QoS and Security, building on the network view given in Part 1.
