A detailed examination of interior routing protocols -- completely updated in a new edition A complete revision of the best-selling first edition--widely considered a premier text on TCP/IP routing protocols A core textbook for CCIE preparation and a practical reference for network designers, administrators, and engineers Includes configuration and troubleshooting lessons that would cost thousands to learn in a classroom and numerous real-world examples and case studies Praised in its first edition for its approachable style and wealth of information, this new edition provides readers a deep understanding of IP routing protocols, teaches how to implement these protocols using Cisco routers, and brings readers up to date protocol and implementation enhancements. Routing TCP/IP, Volume 1, Second Edition, includes protocol changes and Cisco features that enhance routing integrity, secure routers from attacks initiated through routing protocols, and provide greater control over the propagation of routing information for all the IP interior routing protocols. Routing TCP/IP, Volume 1, Second Edition, provides a detailed analysis of each of the IP interior gateway protocols (IGPs). Its structure remains the same as the best-selling first edition, though information within each section is enhanced and modified to include the new developments in routing protocols and Cisco implementations. What's New In This Edition? The first edition covers routing protocols as they existed in 1998. The new book updates all covered routing protocols and discusses new features integrated in the latest version of Cisco IOS Software. IPv6, its use with interior routing protocols, and its interoperability and integration with IPv4 are also integrated into this book. Approximately 200 pages of new information are added to the main text, with some old text removed. Additional exercise and solutions are also included.
The TCP/IP protocol suite underlies Internet traffic yet remains a mystery to most people. While the majority of existing guides are sorely outdated, both of these titles include discussions of the new IPv6. The thorough and platform-independent TCP/IP Guide addresses network administrators, students, and others needing a detailed reference to current protocols. Nicely organized, from an introduction to networking through administration and troubleshooting, the book clearly explains each topic with no assumption of prior knowledge or experience. Highly recommended for all larger libraries. For intermediate users, Routing TCP/IP addresses CCIEs (Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts), network administrators, and engineers needing to understand TCP/IP routing protocols; it includes case studies, review questions, and exercises to help readers prepare for the CCIE exam or otherwise use the title for self-study. While examples and discussions are Cisco-specific, content is generally applicable to any platform. A clear reference for large public libraries and academic libraries serving computer science programs. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
