The most complete guide to Cisco Catalyst(r) switch network design, operation, and configuration

  • Master key foundation topics such as high-speed LAN technologies, LAN segmentation, bridging, the Catalyst command-line environment, and VLANs
  • Improve the performance of your campus network by utilizing effective Cisco Catalyst design, configuration, and troubleshooting techniques
  • Benefit from the most comprehensive coverage of Spanning-Tree Protocol, including invaluable information on troubleshooting common Spanning Tree problems
  • Master trunking concepts and applications, including ISL, 802.1Q, LANE, and MPOA
  • Understand when and how to utilize Layer 3 switching techniques for maximum effect
  • Understand Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching configuration with the Catalyst 6000 family, including coverage of the powerful MSFC Native IOS Mode

Cisco LAN Switchingprovides the most comprehensive coverage of the best methods for designing, utilizing, and deploying LAN switching devices and technologies in a modern campus network. Divided into six parts, this book takes you beyond basic switching concepts by providing an array of proven design models, practical implementation solutions, and troubleshooting strategies. Part I discusses important foundation issues that provide a context for the rest of the book, including Fast and Gigabit Ethernet, routing versus switching, the types of Layer 2 switching, the Catalyst command-line environment, and VLANs. Part II presents the most detailed discussion of Spanning-Tree Protocol in print, including common problems, troubleshooting, and enhancements, such as PortFast, UplinkFast, BackboneFast, and PVST+. Part III examines the critical issue of trunk connections, the links used to carry multiple VLANs through campus networks. Entire chapters are dedicated to LANE and MPOA. Part IV addresses advanced features, such as Layer 3 switching, VTP, and CGMP and IGMP. Part V covers real-world campus design and implementation issues, allowing you to benefit from the collective advice of many LAN switching experts. Part VI discusses issues specific to the Catalyst 6000/6500 family of switches, including the powerful Native IOS Mode of Layer 3 switching.

Several features in Cisco LAN Switchingare designed to reinforce concepts covered in the book and to help you prepare for the CCIE exam. In addition to the practical discussion of advanced switching issues, this book also contains case studies that highlight real-world design, implementation, and management issues, as well as chapter-ending review questions and exercises.

This book is part of the Cisco CCIE Professional Development Series from Cisco Press, which offers expert-level instruction on network design, deployment, and support methodologies to help networking professionals manage complex networks and prepare for CCIE exams.

Format:Hardcover
This book is perfect for anybody wishing to attain a very detail knowledge of LAN Switching from a Cisco point of view. It covers Spanning Tree in great detail which no other book I have ever read has done and it also covers subjects in such a way that you can take this knowledge straight into the field. It also covers VLAN's, VTP, Truncking and ATM - I don't think it misses anything out. I am currently taking my CCIE and would recommend this book to anyone wishing to get the same accreditation. The best Cisco Press book I have ever worked with..

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent & easy to read 8 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Very good book you should order if you want very DETAILED information on these subjects : SPANNING TREE (150 pages!), VLan use for load balancing, trunking, layer 3 switching with catalyst (off course it is cisco :) )and application to real world design campus (and this is only the principals...). If you only wants a simple quick overview on these subject, search another book! There is nice review and exercice at the end of chapters and tips for configuring material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outdated but brilliantly written 6 April 2013
By JT
Format:Hardcover
This book is in need for an update to cover the new switching platforms, one might argue that Cisco LAN Switching Fundamentals (ISBN-10: 1587050897 | ISBN-13: 978-1587050893) offers that kind of update since it takes in consideration the newer Catalyst platforms. The book is brilliantly written, I can go as far as saying that they don't write books like this anymore, the technical details are top notch as you would expect, but you feel that the authors are talking to you and sharing their experience. This is a fun read and no matter what level you are at in your career, this book will cement your switching knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars If it is not in this book you do not need it! 24 Feb 2005
By bernie TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
I usually say that no one book can be the end-all be-all. Well I am never wrong; but I in this case might not be all that right. This book covers questions that I did not know I had. And if you say this is not for beginners, then where would you begin? The diagrams are clear and plentiful. Every acronym is defined. In the end this book is a more of not how to kick it, but where to kick. The section that I used to apply is on "Campus Design Implementation."

Sections:
Foundational Issues - basics of switched networking
Spanning Tree - advanced spanning tree configurations
Trunking - LANE, and ATM
Advanced Features - Layer 3 switching, VTP and multicast services
Real-World Campus Design and Implementation - variety of network designs
Catalyst 6000 Technology - coverage of Catalyst 6500's
Appendix - Answers to end of chapterexercises

If you would like a preview before buying the real thing there is an excerpts book ISBN 1-58720-008-2 that lets you see more of the content.Enterprise campus design folio: Excerpts from the Cisco Press Book, Cisco LAN switching
