Have you ever been to a business meeting where you kept hearing about TCP/IP but didn't really know what it was? More and more people are entering the field of networking every day, many of whom are sales and/or marketing professionals coming from a liberal arts background. These professionals need to know the basics of networking without wading through hundreds of pages of highly technical information found in other networking books. This guide covers the fundamentals and basic building blocks of a network, how voice and data networks are constructed and how they work, and where networking is going in the future.
