Data communications technologies are evolving and expanding at an unparalleled rate. The growth in demand for Internet access and intranet services continues to fuel rapid technical adaptation by both implementers and developers. Unfortunately, creating an information resource such as the Internetworking Technology Overview requires a certain recognition by its authors that some
information is likely to be obsolete the day it appears in print.
The Internetworking Technologies Handbook approached its development with a commitment to helping readers make informed technology decisions and develop a keen awareness of this dilemma. You will be able to identify technologies that will accommodate working network solutions as your requirements change.
- Part 1, “Introduction to Internetworking” presents concepts basic to the understanding of internetworking and network management.
- Part 2, “LAN Protocols,” describes standard protocols used for accessing network physical media.
- Part 3, “WAN Technologies” describes standard protocols used to implement wide-area networking.
- Part 4, “Bridging and Switching,” describes protocols and technologies used to provide Layer 2 connectivity between subnetworks.
- Part 5, “Network Protocols,” describes standard networking protocol stacks that can be routed through an internetwork.
- Part 6, “Routing Protocols,” describes protocols used to route information through an internetwork.
- Part 7, “Internet Access Technologies” describes security network caching technologies and directory services.
- Part 8, “Network Management,” describes the architecture and operation of common network management implementations.
