One of the industry's leading resources for Internet routing solutions and scenarios presents complex technologies and concepts in a practical, easy-to-follow style. The authors explain the contemporary Internet structure and describe how to evaluate a service provider in dealing with routing and connectivity issues.
Network routing can be broadly categorized into Internet routing, PSTN routing, and telecommunication transport network routing. This book systematically considers these routing paradigms, as well as their interoperability. The authors discuss how algorithms, protocols, analysis, and operational deployment impact these approaches. A unique feature of the book is consideration of both macro-state and micro-state in routing; that is, how routing is accomplished at the level of networks and how routers or switches are designed to enable efficient routing. In reading this book, one will learn about 1) the evolution of network routing, 2) the role of IP and E.164 addressing in routing, 3) the impact on router and switching architectures and their design, 4) deployment of network routing protocols, 5) the role of traffic engineering in routing, and 6) lessons learned from implementation and operational experience. This book explores the strengths and weaknesses that should be considered during deployment of future routing schemes as well as actual implementation of these schemes. It allows the reader to understand how different routing strategies work and are employed and the connection between them. This is accomplished in part by the authors' use of numerous real-world examples to bring the material alive. Bridges the gap between theory and practice in network routing, including the fine points of implementation and operational experience Routing in a multitude of technologies discussed in practical detail, including, IP/MPLS, PSTN, and optical networking Routing protocols such as OSPF, IS-IS, BGP presented in detail A detailed coverage of various router and switch architectures A comprehensive discussion about algorithms on IP-lookup and packet classification Accessible to a wide audience due to its vendor-neutral approach

Network Routing: Algorithms, Protocols, and Architectures, Second Edition, explores network routing and how it can be broadly categorized into Internet routing, PSTN routing, and telecommunication transport network routing. The book systematically considers these routing paradigms, as well as their interoperability, discussing how algorithms, protocols, analysis, and operational deployment impact these approaches and addressing both macro-state and micro-state in routing. Readers will learn about the evolution of network routing, the role of IP and E.164 addressing and traffic engineering in routing, the impact on router and switching architectures and their design, deployment of network routing protocols, and lessons learned from implementation and operational experience. Numerous real-world examples bring the material alive. Extensive coverage of routing in the Internet, from protocols (such as OSPF, BGP), to traffic engineering, to security issues A detailed coverage of various router and switch architectures, IP lookup and packet classification methods A comprehensive treatment of circuit-switched routing and optical network routing New topics such as software-defined networks, data center networks, multicast routing Bridges the gap between theory and practice in routing, including the fine points of implementation and operational experience Accessible to a wide audience due to its vendor-neutral approach
A systems analysis approach to enterprise network design Master techniques for checking the health of an existing network to develop a baseline for measuring performance of a new network design Explore solutions for meeting QoS requirements, including ATM traffic management, IETF controlled-load and guaranteed services, IP multicast, and advanced switching, queuing, and routing algorithms Develop network designs that provide the high bandwidth and low delay required for real-time applications such as multimedia, distance learning, and videoconferencing Identify the advantages and disadvantages of various switching and routing protocols, including transparent bridging, Inter-Switch Link (ISL), IEEE 802.1Q, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, and BGP4 Effectively incorporate new technologies into enterprise network designs, including VPNs, wireless networking, and IP Telephony Top-Down Network Design, Second Edition, is a practical and comprehensive guide to designing enterprise networks that are reliable, secure, and manageable. Using illustrations and real-world examples, it teaches a systematic method for network design that can be applied to campus LANs, remote-access networks, WAN links, and large-scale internetworks. You will learn to analyze business and technical requirements, examine traffic flow and QoS requirements, and select protocols and technologies based on performance goals. You will also develop an understanding of network performance factors such as network utilization, throughput, accuracy, efficiency, delay, and jitter. Several charts and job aids will help you apply a top-down approach to network design. This Second Edition has been revised to include new and updated material on wireless networks, virtual private networks (VPNs), network security, network redundancy, modularity in network designs, dynamic addressing for IPv4 and IPv6, new network design and management tools, Ethernet scalability options (including 10-Gbps Ethernet, Metro Ethernet, and Long-Reach Ethernet), and networks that carry voice and data traffic. Top-Down Network Design, Second Edition, has a companion website at http://www.topdownbook.com, which includes updates to the book, links to white papers, and supplemental information about design resources. This book is part of the Networking Technology Series from Cisco Press¿ which offers networking professionals valuable information for constructing efficient networks, understanding new technologies, and building successful careers.
All network designers and administrators want their campus LANs to run efficiently. This book provides tips and techniques for using protocol analyzers and other tools to recognize problems for both Cisco and multiprotocol traffic patterns. * Focuses on troubleshooting problems that arise from the Cisco routers inter-operating with many other network protocols * Covers both legacy and cutting-edge technologies * Authors are respected in the field for their teaching and training development skills in network troubleshooting

Everybody's connected. Everybody's wired. Everybody's talking. Nobody is secure. In 2001, 90 per cent of business surveyed by the FBI reported breaches of their communication systems, showing that we are only just begining to understand how porous wireless systems are. This book uncovers the threats and vunerablilities unique to wireless communication and other solutions for telecom, broadband, satellite, and other emerging markets. It also helps you plan application-aware cryptographic tactics, plot your realistic defenses, and review the commercial solutions currently on the market.
