Large Scale Network Design Livelessons

Large Scale Network Design Livelessons

Large Scale Network Design LiveLessons takes you through the concepts behind stable, scalable, elegant network design, including modularity, resilience, layering, and security principles. This livelesson will focus on traditional distributed link state, distance vector, and path vector routing protocols, as well as the basic principles of centralized control planes (such as OpenFlow). A special point will be made of sorting out the relationship between policy and reachability, and where they can best be managed in a large scale network.

EIGRP for IP

EIGRP for IP

Cisco's EIGRP routing protocol is increasingly popular in enterprise IP networks -- but accurate, readable EIGRP documentation is scarce, so many EIGRP networks don't run nearly as well as they might. Now, a team of Cisco network engineers has distilled everything you need to know to implement, operate, and troubleshoot EIGRP successfully into one concise guide! The book begins with EIGRP theory, explaining the basic concepts, terminology, and mechanisms used by EIGRP to provide routing information

IS-IS: Deployment in IP Networks

IS-IS: Deployment in IP Networks

IS-IS or Intermediate System to Intermediate System protocol is a routing protocol which has long been used by telephone networks and has recently surged in popularity among Internet Service Providers and in other large networks. The IS-IS protocol is used in conjunction with the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and offers flexibility in configuration and scalability for large and complex networks. IS-IS is covered in the CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) exam, and those preparing for that challenging exam will be interested in learning more about this protocol. Two Cisco experts here provide a beneficial mix of operational theory of the protocol and many practical examples and case studies. This new guide provides what network professionals need most: highly valuable configuration examples, combined with expert advice on deploying IS-IS in a real network.
