Title: Cisco LAN Switching Fundamentals (Cisco Press Fundamentals Series)
Publisher: Cisco Press
Authors: David Barnes, Basir Sakandar
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Suitable For the Almost Beginner up to Intermediate


After the dot.com bubble burst, a lot of us had serious concerns about Cisco as a company. There was so much used equipment (much of which hadn't even been taken out of the box) that new sales had to fall. But time marches on and Cisco has clearly survived and even thrived. But there have been some changes. New products and even new product directions have come about. Still, however more than half the revenue of the company comes out of ethernet switches.

This book focuses on the concepts, architecture, configuration, and troubleshooting of Cisco Ethernet switches. It is designed to fit the needs of the networking professional from the almost beginner through intermediate level. The book begins, just as it should, with a discussion of the Open System Interconnection (OSI) reference model. From here it goes on for a truly excellent first thirty pages, the thirty pages that most computer books seem to leave out. It goes on to giving some description of the older technologies (that many of use still have to maintain) and finally to the newest, latest and greatest.

This is an in depth coverage that is truly excellent.

outstanding


The major quality of this book is that provides answers for everyone. For the beginners it explains all concepts as they are used, don't have to read the book three times to have a complete understanding. For network administrators it gives lots of troubleshooting hints and ideas on how to accomplish task. For consultants and designers, it has the in-depth knowledge.The side effect of this approach is the size. At 1600 pages is difficult to read and to structure the information. A 2-page summary at the end of every chapter would help.
