Essential information on the successful troubleshooting of complexcampus networks

Just as a used car can seem to be in good condition to aninexperienced consumer, a network can also feign an appearance thatall is running smoothly to the unskilled user.

Network engineers, administrators, and technicians whomanage Cisco and multivendor campus networks know how crucial it isto determine when a network has serious problems and what to doabout them, particularly when that network spans buildings andconsists of wired and wireless technologies. Known as campusnetworks, these networks connect tens, hundreds, or even thousandsof users at businesses, universities, nonprofit organizations, andgovernment agencies. This informative book teaches the use of Ciscoand industry-standard trouble-shooting tools to analyze, diagnose,and fix problems on modern switched and routed networks withinformation that is based on many years of analyzing real-world,diverse, and complex networks.
