Networking: We are in the midst of a boom in the field of IT networking. Netowrking and IT administration jobs were identified by the Bureau of Labor Statistics as tops growth jobs within the IT sector, with a job growth expectation of 35% for the span of years 2010-2014. In the first section networking technologies are arranged by chapter in logical groups. For example, there are chapters on the physical aspect of networking (wiring models, cable types, topologies, support hardware), low-level network protocols (TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, NetBEUI, etc.), higher level protocols (SAP, RIP, NCP), data communication technologies (Frame Relay, DS-0/1/3, ATM, xDSL), security models and technologies (Public/Private Key systems, Kerberos, RSA, DES, etc.), directory services (NDS and Active Directory, X.400, LDAP), network infrastructure hardware (hubs, routers, switches, CSU/DSUs) and so forth. These chapters will explain these technologies with sufficient depth so that the reader will find it a useful reference to refer to in the future, but will also make sure that they are easily understandable. Following the success of his 5th edition, published in late 2009 and with Windows Server 2012 in the pre-release stage, Hallberg is eager to make this important update. Networking A Beginner's Guide, Sixth Edition,will be brought fully and throughly up-to-date to provide critical, fundamental knowledge about the latest networking technologies. This will include all-new details on mobile, cloud, radical cost-savings strategies including best-in-class procure,emt and global networking/telecom, as well as updates to chapters on virtualization, wired and wireless network design, configuration, hardware, protocols, security and backup and recovery.
