This study guide is an in-depth guide to the methods used for analyzing, designing, and managing LANs and point-to-point networks. We examine a business situation and design a new network or network upgrade by completing the following five major phases: Discovery (or Requirements Gathering), Analysis, Logical Design, Physical Design, and Installation and Maintenance.
This study guide has been revised to reflect the most current LAN and WAN technologies. Included is new content discussing contemporary PC and server components, including memory, disk drives, and Input/Output buses. Expanded and updated are its discussions covering NOSs, midrange computer systems, and QoS techniques and protocols. Finally, the network design case studies reflect the expanding use of gigabit Ethernet technology in bandwidth intensive network designs
