Because of the author's extensive research with network administrators and published data on what technologies firms actually use, "Business Data Communications and Networking," Third Edition focuses on what students really need to know in today's networking jobs, such as LAN switching, security, and quality of service (QoS). The Right Information Right When You Need It This uniquely flexible textbook has a novel design. Its twelve core chapters cover key networking concepts, with less basic material placed in boxes. To provide additional flexibility, instructors who wish to emphasize particular areas in more detail can incorporate material from the book's eight advanced modules into the course. www.prenhall.com/panko In addition to the flexibility provided by the textbook's unique design, the text is accompanies by an author-driven companion Web site that provides resources for students and instructors including PowerPoint presentations, case studies, Internet Exercises, instructor's manual download, and other important resources tightly linked to the chapters. New to this Edition "Business Data Communications and Networking," Third Edition includes twelve core chapters instead of the second edition's eight. At the request of adopters and other reviewers, the author divided several of the longer core chapters from the second edition into two chapters in the third edition. The basic flow remains the same, although there are changes in emphasis in response to market trends and adopter comments. Technologies come and go rapidly in networking, and although the book covers general networking principles, it illustrates them using the latest technologies. Updatingthese technologies results in the greatest portion of changes from the second to third edition. In addition to these updates, the author has expanded coverage of and emphasis on topics such as Quality of Service; LAN Switching; Product Selection, Procurement, and Cost Analysis; Security; Windows Networking Setup; Wireless Communication and New Access Devices; Web-Enabled Database Access; Frame Relay; and Systems Administration.

Traditionally, networking has had little or no basis in analysis or architectural development, with designers relying on technologies they are most familiar with or being influenced by vendors or consultants. However, the landscape of networking has changed so that network services have now become one of the most important factors to the success of many third generation networks. It has become an important feature of the designer's job to define the problems that exist in his network, choose and analyze several optimization parameters during the analysis process, and then prioritize and evaluate these parameters in the architecture and design of the system. Network Analysis, Architecture, and Design, Third Edition, uses a systems methodology approach to teaching these concepts, which views the network (and the environment it impacts) as part of the larger system, looking at interactions and dependencies between the network and its users, applications, and devices. This approach matches the new business climate where customers drive the development of new services and the book discusses how networks can be architected and designed to provide many different types of services to customers. With a number of examples, analogies, instructor tips, and exercises, this book works through the processes of analysis, architecture, and design step by step, giving designers a solid resource for making good design decisions. With examples, guidelines, and general principles McCabe illuminates how a network begins as a concept, is built with addressing protocol, routing, and management, and harmonizes with the interconnected technology around it. Other topics covered in the book are learning to recognize problems in initial design, analyzing optimization parameters, and then prioritizing these parameters and incorporating them into the architecture and design of the system. This is an essential book for any professional that will be designing or working with a network on a routine basis. Substantially updated design content includes ad hoc networks, GMPLS, IPv6, and mobile networking Written by an expert in the field that has designed several large-scale networks for government agencies, universities, and corporations Incorporates real-life ideas and experiences of many expert designers along with case studies and end-of-chapter exercises
