Chapter 1: Internetworking Concepts Overview

The purpose of this chapter is to review basic internetworking concepts. These concepts are used throughout this book and are fundamental in understanding the functions of Cisco network devices.

Defining Network Components

The purpose of a data network is to help an organization increase productivity by linking all the computers and computer networks so that people have access to the information regardless of differences in time, location, or type of computer equipment.

Data networks have changed how we view our companies and employees. It is no longer necessary to have everyone in the same location in order to access the information needed to do the job. Because of this, many companies have changed their business strategy to utilize these networks in the way they do business. It is now typical for a company to organize the corporate internetwork in a way that allows it to optimize its resources. Figure I-1 shows that the network is defined based on grouping employees (users) in the following ways:

Branch offices-These are remote locations where smaller groups of people work. These users connect to each other via a LAN. In order to access the main office, these users access wide-area network (WAN) services. Although some information might be stored at the branch office, it is likely that users will have to access much of the data from the main office. How often the main office network is accessed determines whether the WAN connection will be a permanent or dialup connection.

Telecommuters-These are employees who work out of their homes. These users typically require an on-demand connection to the main office and/or the branch office in order to access network resources.

Mobile users-These individuals work from various locations and rely on different services to connect to the network. While at the main or branch offices, these users connect to the LAN. When they are out of the office, these users usually rely on dialup services to connect to the corporate network.

In order to understand what types of equipment and services to deploy in your network and when, it is important to understand business and user needs. You can then subdivide the network into a hierarchical model that spans from the end user's machine to the core (backbone) of the network. Figure 1-2 shows how the different employee groups interconnect.

To subdivide an internetwork into smaller components, Cisco uses a three-layer hierarchical model, as described in the following section.

Mapping Business Needs to a Hierarchical Model

To simplify network designs, implementation, and management, Cisco uses a hierarchical model to describe the network. Although using this model is typically associated with designing a network, it is important to understand the model in order to know what equipment and features are needed in your network. Campus networks have traditionally placed basic network-level intelligence and services at the center of the network and shared bandwidth at the user level. As businesses continue to place more emphasis on the network as a productivity tool, distributed network services and switching will continue to migrate to the desktop level.

User demands and network applications have forced networking professionals to use the traffic patterns in the network as the criteria for building an internetwork. Networks cannot be divided into subnetworks based only on the number of users. The emergence of servers that run global applications also has a direct impact on the load across the network. A higher traffic load across the entire network results in the need for more efficient routing and switching techniques.

Traffic patterns now dictate the type of services needed by end users in networks. To properly build an internetwork that can effectively address a user's needs, a three-layer hierarchical model is used to organize traffic flow (see Figure 1-3).

The model consists of three layers:

  • Access
  • Distribution
  • Core
Each of these layers serves a function in delivering network services, as described in the following sections.

Access Layer

The access layer of the network is the point at which end users are connected to the network. This is why the access layer is sometimes referred to as the desktop layer. Users, and the resources they need to access most, are locally available. Traffic to and from local resources is confined between the resources, switches, and end users. Multiple groups of users and their resources exist at the access layer...

Foreword

In April 1998, Cisco Systems, Inc., announced a new professional development initiative called the Cisco Career Certifications. These certifications address the growing worldwide demand for more (and better) trained computer networking experts. Building upon our highly successful Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) programthe industry's most respected networking certification vehicle-Cisco Career Certifications enable you to be certified at various technical proficiency levels. Interconnecting Cisco Network Devices presents, in book format, all the topics covered in the challenging instructor-led and e-learning certification preparation courses of the same name. The ICND courses are the latest iteration of the CCNA recommended training material previously covered in Introduction to Cisco Router Configuration (ICRC 11.3) and Cisco Routers and LAN Switches (CRLS 3.0), as well as a portion of Cisco LAN Switch Configuration (CLSC). Whether you are studying to become CCNA certified or you just need a better understanding of the concepts, commands, and practices required to configure Cisco switches and routers in multiprotocol networks, you will benefit from the information presented in this book. Cisco and Cisco Press present this material in text-based format to provide another learning vehicle for our customers and the broader user community in general. Although a publication does not duplicate the instructor-led or e-learning environments, we acknowledge that not everyone responds in the same way to the same delivery mechanism. It is our intent that presenting this material via a Cisco Press publication will enhance the transfer of knowledge to a broad audience of networkingprofessionals. This is the seventh in a series of course supplements planned for Cisco Press, following Introduction to Cisco Router Configuration, Advanced Cisco Router Configuration, Building Cisco Remote Access Networks, Cisco Internetwork Troubleshooting, Designing Cisco Networks, and Cisco Internetwork Design. Cisco will present existing and future courses through these coursebooks to help achieve Cisco Worldwide Training's principal objectives: to educate the Cisco community of networking professionals and to enable that community to build and maintain reliable, scalable networks. The Cisco Career Certifications and classes that support these certifications are directed at meeting these objectives through a disciplined approach to progressive learning. The books Cisco creates in partnership with Cisco Press will meet the same standards for content quality demanded of our courses and certifications. It is our intent that you will find this and subsequent Cisco Press certification and training publications of value as you build your networking knowledge base.

    640-507 CCNA Exam

    This book is somewhat outdated now, since Cisco just released a new version of the CCNA exam. However, the information presented in the book is still relevant and covers most of the topics tested on the exam.

    Too many errors

    Good book on 'interconnecting Cisco network devices'. There are far too many errors however. This book provides a lightly wider coverage of Cisco internetworking than your regular CCNA books.

    An easy read.....

    This book fills in some holes that other books leave regarding, oddly enough, interconnecting Cisco equipment together. Most CCNA texts gloss over or completely ignore some basic connection info that is covered here. There are a few errors but most are corrected in the errata info at Cisco. The errata should definitely be printed out. A definite 'must read' for any CCNA candidate.

    this book is so so

    I passed the ccna exam this morning but won't give much thanks to this book. the book has too many typos and also the answers are not correct. the excecise given at the end of the chapter changes when it comes to explaning at the end of the book. For example, in the exercise, the mask is given 255.. at the end of the book it says 254.. then in bit calculation it is 252.. another problem is that, there aren't too many practice questions in this book. I borrowed lamar's book for practice which has 20 questions for each chapter and 60 for total. but the bottom line is none ofthese books are great this book will give u foundation .. ur work experience and router exp is more important in passing this test.
