I bought this book as I was deploying additional switches in our business network and wanted to get a heads-up in network designing, security and correct configuration of switch fabrics.
This book has every little detail you need to understand everything network switching. It explains the history of where the switch came from, and how the industry standards have shaped the network hardware that we see today.
It then goes on to give you valuable information about switching methods, design and application usage, network security, and much more! It is the ultimate book on network switching, and it has helped me progress through our business rapid-growth period.
