Overview

Providing up-to-date information on practical methods that improve network efficiency, this book covers how to estimate network traffic, determine availability and reliability of different network configurations, and ascertain the number of ports required on access controllers. It also tackles the line speed of WAN connections linking routes and how to work with images and techniques used to optimize online traffic. The fourth edition covers the economics of Web-hosting and the impact of images on monthly server costs. The author discusses how to make cost-efficient decisions, how to develop models in order to predict LAN performance, and how to adjust LANs for improved performance.

Until I read this book I had no idea of how to determine the correct operating speed to interconnect two geographically separated LANs, compute the availability level of different network configurations and determine which type of Ethernet was most appropriate to install. This book answered these questions and much more.
