Different computing and networking technologies exist; some are currently in use, some are just starting to emerge, others are tried-and-true, and some are still quite experimental.
Recognizing technologies is crucial for a deeper understanding of the computing conundrum, especially given that a single technology is rarely sufficient on its own and that numerous technologies are typically required.
This book uses an instructional style to describe a selection of several technology types. Application support, transport networks, and sub networking are the three main technology domains that are compared.
Additionally, a selection of example client scenarios is used to illustrate how these technologies might be used in a specific context.
Consultants and system designers can use this book to better comprehend the solutions available to address the networking issues of clients from a business and technical standpoint.
