The physical linkages responsible for carrying a company's data continue to be the most neglected components of the typical network—to the extent that nearly 70% of all network-related problems result from poor cabling.

In this third edition of a widely acclaimed resource, three networking experts share their extensive experience, teaching you the cabling skills you need to build a reliable, efficient, and cost-effective network cabling infrastructure. As you master these techniques, you'll learn to avoid common pitfalls and troubleshoot problems as quickly as they arise. Coverage includes:

  • Choosing the right cables and components for your network architecture and topology
  • Avoiding unnecessary and unexpected costs
  • Understanding the current limitations of data communications and network cabling
  • Understanding how laws and building codes constrain cabling
  • Understanding the function and importance of universal cabling standards
  • Determining when you have a cabling-related network problem
  • Assembling a complete cabling toolkit
  • Integrating voice and data on the same cable system
  • Setting up an infrastructure in which desktops, printers, copiers, and other nodes share cabling
  • Understanding issues of bandwidth, impedance, resistance, attenuation, crosstalk, capacitance, propagation, delay, and delay skew
  • Working effectively with USB and Firewire
  • Knowing when to discard legacy cabling and begin anew
  • Documenting your cabling
