Book Preface

Knowing how to install, configure, and troubleshoot a computer network is a highly marketable and exciting skill. This book first introduces the fundamental building blocks that form a modern network, such as protocols, media, topologies, and hardware. It then provides in-depth coverage of the most important concepts in contemporary networking, such as TCP/IP, Ethernet, wireless transmission, virtual networks, and security. After reading the book and completing the end-of-chapter exercises, you will be prepared to select the best network design, hardware, and software for your environment. You will also have the skills to build a network from scratch and maintain, upgrade, troubleshoot, and manage an existing network. Finally, you will be well prepared to pass CompTIA’s Network+ certification exam.

Because some technical topics can be difficult to grasp, this book explains concepts logically and in a clear, approachable style. In addition, concepts are reinforced by real-world examples of networking issues from a professional’s standpoint. Each chapter opens with an On the Job story from a network engineer. These real-world examples, along with Hands-On Projects and Case Projects in each chapter, make this book a practical learning tool. The numerous tables and illustrations, along with
the glossaries, appendices, and study questions, make the book a valuable reference for any networking professional.

Intended Audience

No previous networking experience is necessary to begin learning from this book, although knowledge of basic computer principles is helpful.
