Your First Step into the World of Network Routing Gain an understanding of network routing basics with this reader-friendly guideNo previous knowledge required to learn the basics of network routingLearn about routing, routing protocols, and the challenges of network operationLearn from a leading networking expert, author, and college instructor, William Parkhurst

Routing First-Step is an accessible, easy-to-understand introduction to the world of network routing. The book introduces you to the concepts of IP routing and IP routing protocols by first comparing them to everyday systems you're familiar with, such as the postal system, the telephone system, airports, and the interstate highway system. The review of the components from these familiar systems is then used to introduce the concepts and terminology used in IP routing. Comparing everyday systems that everyone uses to the world of network routing will give you a comprehensive and clear understanding of what IP routing truly means.

Routing First-Step assumes that readers have no previous experience with IP routing, or the related protocols. It is the perfect companion for non-technical users, whether they plan to continue with their study of internetworking or simply need a foundation understanding of the concepts to help them at home or on the job. Each chapter introduces a topic, defines terms and functions, and puts those functions in the context of a typical network operation. Explanations are clear and concise, and figures and analogies are used liberally to convey and illustrate concepts. Each chapter opens with a specific set of learning objectives and concludes with a chapter summary and review.
