A Brief Overview not a technical book 11 Feb 2014
By RP_TX8279 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a decent 1 day read on Switch Technology and getting you up to par what is out there. By no means is this a theoretical book to learn switches just how switches have changed and the new services they can offer. I enjoyed the quick read on some of the technology new switches offer. Don't listen to the person above. They didn't read the description. THIS IS JUST AN OVERVIEW ON SWITCH TECHNOLOGY NOT IN DEPTH ON HOW IT WORKS. If you want to catch up on what services switches can offer in the present then buy it. If you are looking for a book to explain the switching process do not buy. I enjoyed it for what it is. Thanks.

A decent short overview 10 April 2013
By Roger Marks - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Pretty good range of topics, but the coverage of each topic is at the barest minimum and includes almost no technical detail.
