Network Warriorby Gary A Donahue
Synopses & Reviews
Written by networking veteran with 20 years of experience, Network Warrior provides a thorough and practical introduction to the entire network infrastructure, from cabling to the routers. What you need to learn to pass a Cisco certification exam such as CCNA and what you need to know to survive in the real world are two very different things. The strategies that this book offers weren 't on the exam, but they 're exactly what you need to do your job well.
Network Warrior takes you step by step through the world of hubs, switches, firewalls, and more, including ways to troubleshoot a congested network, and when to upgrade and why. Along the way, you 'll gain an historical perspective of various networking features, such as the way Ethernet evolved. Based on the author 's own experience as well as those he worked for and with, Network Warrior is a Cisco-centric book, focused primarily on the TCP/IP protocol and Ethernet networks — the realm that Cisco Systems now dominates. The book covers:
The type of networks now in use, from LANs, WANs and MANs to CANs
The book also explains how to sell your ideas to management, how networks become a mess as a company grows, and why change control is your friend. Network Warrior will help network administrators and engineers win the complex battles they face every day.
Book News Annotation:
Donahue, a computer consultant and head of GAD Technologies in New Jersey, has designed this manual to cover the same information on Cisco networks as in the CCNA certification exam, but with greater depth and more real-world applications. The authors shows programmers, administrators and network architects how to troubleshoot a Cisco network, including routers, switches and firewalls, and offers tips on how to avoid congestion within this type of network. Case studies are used to illustrate common problems in LAN, WAN, MAN and CAN networks, and plenty of diagrams are employed to provide logical strategies to solving obstacles.
