The first step into the world of computer networking from the only Cisco Systems authorized publisher.
Computer Networking First Step is an accessible, easy to understand introduction to the language of the Internet. Students of internetworking technology and aspiring network administrators need a starting point to gain a handle on the often-cryptic acronyms and terminology of the Internet. This book is the perfect companion for these non-technical users, whether they plan to continue on with their study of internetworking or simply need a foundation understanding of the concepts to help them at home or on the job. Computer Networking First-Step assumes no previous knowledge of networking whatsoever. Divided into six parts, the book provides an overview of each of the major components of modern networks, including networking basics, Local Area Networks (LANs), routing, addressing, Wide Area Networks (WANs) and remote access, and finally, security. Each chapter introduces a topic, defines terms and functions, and puts those functions in the context of a typical network operation. Explanations are clear and concise, and figures and analogies are used liberally to convey and illustrate concepts. Each chapter opens with a specific set of learning objectives and concludes with a chapter summary and chapter review.
