This undergraduate text in data communications approaches problem solving with a practical, business perspective. With case studies and process modeling, the author introduces data/voice communication concepts, issues and technologies. He then focuses on three major networking areas: LANs, enterprise networking and network administration. In a top down approach, he first introduces concepts and then details hardware, architectures, operating systems, technologies and applications. Chapters include 'Managerial Perspective' sections that use a "bottom-line" approach to network analysis and design. This is especially valid within the context of network administration and the network development live cycle. The associated Web site contains additional information, references and links. An instructor's resource guide is also available.
