Network Architecture and Design takes readers through every phase of a new project from client meetings, site surveys, data collection and interpretation, documentation to actually designing and implementing the network according to spec. The discussion includes:

  • An overview of LAN and WAN topologies
  • Coverage of NOS (Novell Operating System)
  • Integration of the client operating system (this 50% of network architecture is often overlooked in similar titles)
  • Protocols
  • Connectivity Devices
  • Implementing Remote Access
  • Security
  • Internet connectivity
  • Network Monitoring

In addition, the author has prepared a sample of client documentation, a glossary of terms and a trouble shooting quick reference guide.

Review:

A treatment of data networking concepts, implementations, and history, Network Architecture and Design will prove interesting to readers who are just beginning to explore data networking and would like to make a living in the field. In this book, J.F. DiMarzio reveals technologies--including everything from simple single-segment Ethernet local area networks (LANs) to Frame Relay wide area networks (WANs) and virtual private networks (VPNs)--with an emphasis on working with them on customers' sites as a consultant. There's really no cutting-edge stuff here, and indeed anyone with even a little network administration experience will find a lot of DiMarzio's material old hat. But he covers the consultant's bread-and-butter jobs well.

The author's writing style may disagree with some readers. He has a habit of opening paragraphs with questions, and using an extremely casual, conversational style that sometimes makes it hard to determine his meaning. He's also put a lot of emphasis on Microsoft Windows NT, a technology that most organizations are phasing out. Further, he tends to introduce very big concepts--such as the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing protocol--and then provide an awkward smattering of technical details about them (it would have been better if he'd left all details to specialized texts). Despite these shortcomings, DiMarzio's book will help a rookie network consultant shepherd a project through to completion. --David Wall

Topics covered: Fundamentals of data networking, oriented toward analyzing customer requirements, designing a network to suit them, and managing a project that implements the plan.

About the Author:

J. F. DiMarzio is a network engineer with 10 years of experience in system design and administration. He has worked as a consultant since 1991 for organizations such as the Walt Disney Company and the United States Department of Defense. Currently, J. F.

I would also like to thank, in no particular order, Joe Carchedi, Paul Desmond, Don Parkhurst, and Steven Brown.

On a personal note, I thank my parents Jerome and Agnes, my amazing wife Suzannah (for being more patient with me than I ever hoped), and finally my wonderful children Christian and Sophia.

I thank everyone who helped to make this book happen and my sincere apologies go to anybody I forgot or left out.
