More than 100,000 networking professionals already depend on Cisco Press's Internetworking Technologies Handbook for authoritative introductions and practical guidance on nearly every aspect of internetworking. With this new Third Edition, the book becomes more valuable than ever.
To begin with, you'll find new and updated coverage of xDSL, cable, and wireless communications, Virtual Private Networks, RSVP, Quality of Service (QoS), directory-enabled networking, and network caching.
Those may be the sexy topics, but the book covers the waterfront. LAN protocols, from Ethernet to FDDI and Token Ring. WAN technologies, from ISDN to frame relay. Voice/data integration. Bridging and switching, including VLANs, MPLS, and tag switching. Network protocols, from IP and IPv6 to NetWare and AppleTalk. Routing protocols, from IBM's SNA and APPN to Cisco's high-performance EIGRP. Internetwork security. Even network management. And if it's not in the book proper, chances are it's in the 180-page glossary.
We've noticed only one significant omission: VoIP, a topic so complex that Cisco has set it aside for another book.
Whether you're a working networking professional who needs a rapid reference to new technologies and concepts, a CCNA candidate, or a student seeking to master internetworking from the ground up, you'll find Internetworking Technologies Handbook, Third Edition invaluable. (Bill Camarda)
