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 Creating an RFP and selecting a vendor

Ethernet has been the core networking technology since the early 1980s, and is used by every high-tech business. While the basic protocols have changed little, new options such as Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet have increased the complexity of the topic. Ethernet: The Definitive Guide provides everything you need to know to set up and manage an Ethernet network. Ethernet: The Definitive Guide includes details about the IEEE 802.3 standard and its protocols, and is separated into five parts: Introduction to Ethernet provides a tour of basic Ethernet theory and operation, including a description of Ethernet frames, operation of the Media Access Control (MAC) protocol, full-duplex mode, and Auto-Negotiation. Ethernet Media Systems is the heart of the book. This section shows you how to build media-specific Ethernet networks, from a basic 10BASE-T Ethernet offering 10 Mbps over twisted-pair cables, to an advanced 1000BASE-X Gigabit Ethernet system, providing up to 1 Gbps of data transfer over fiber optic cables. Building Your Ethernet System teaches you how to build twisted-pair and fiber optic media segments, as well as how to expand the reach of your local area network using repeaters and switching hubs. Performance and Troubleshooting is divided into two chapters. The first describes the performance of a given Ethernet channel, as well as the performance of the entire network system. The second chapter includes a tutorial on troubleshooting techniques and describes the kinds of problems; network administrators are likely to encounter. The last part of the book, Appendixes, includes a complete glossary of terms used throughout the book, a resource list, descriptions of thick and thin coax-based Ethernet systems, and a guide to AUI equipment installation and configuration. Ethernet: The Definitive Guide is the one essential source of information for network administrators who need to build and manage scalable local area networks.
