Understanding Local Area Networking Overview

Understanding Local Area Networking elaborates Local area networks (LANs) that are used by just about every organization, and today, many homes have them as well. In this first lesson, we will refer to a fictitious company named Proseware, Inc., that wants to implement a new LAN that will serve approximately 20 users in a brand-new office. The company requires an extremely quick network that can transfer many different types of data. It wants the most cost-effective layout possible without losing speed or efficiency! As in all such situations, the network engineer’s job responsibilities include selecting the right equipment, making sure this equipment is compatible, and getting everything installed on time. Also, the network engineer should have a thorough understanding of technologies such as Ethernet and switching, because they will be critical in designing and implementing the network. Therefore, in this chapter, we will cover all of the concepts necessary for confidently installing the network that Proseware desires. Then, as the book progresses, we will build on this scenario and add many more networking technologies to the company’s infrastructure
