Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.


TCP/IP Primer Plus offers its readers an in-depth examination of one of the core networking technologies in a widely accepted format.

It covers BGP in sufficient depth to equip the reader with knowledge they can translate into improved network management, and shows clearly how the standard OSI model is linked to the TCP/IP suite.
