Overview

Enterprise Networking for Information Systems Professionals provides all the material IS professionals need in order to chart the right strategic course, using the optimum data communications capabilities within the industry, for their organization's enterprise network. You will learn how to choose among the almost unlimited variety of protocols, standards, and technologies available to build a network that is economically sound and amenable to future growth. This book is both a tutorial and compendium of current and potential data communications capabilities. The scope of the topics range from a discussion of IS objectives feasible with current and past communications, to the architecture of the ISO OSI reference model. It also includes information on the capabilities of media, topologies, signaling, and access characteristics which constitute key elements of the enterprise-wide local, metropolitan, and wide area network. The author explains these functions by exploring the technologies at the heart of network elements, product capabilities, and services. Enterprise Networking for Information Systems Professionals includes details on the significance of network choices - the important options for meeting your organization's needs; coverage and analysis of the key data communications technologies and standards in today's services and products; comparison of and details on the internetworking functions of routers and bridges used in services like TCP/IP and APPN, as well as an explanation of Source Routing and Transparent Routing; explanation of the roles of analog and digital facilities and services including: modems, ATM, SONET, Frame Relay, ISDN, T1, and T3; description of media characteristics, topologies, access methods, and signaling technologies; and study of the mutual dependence of computers with communications such as IBM's SNA, APPN, Netbios, and APPC LU6.2.

Written for systems professionals, systems analysts and communications staffs, this volume will appeal to IS managers feeling a downsizing pinch. It is a "big picture" book filled with enough details to satisfy the needs of any IS professional, and presents most of the communication choices an IS manager may have to make.
