Computer Networking Breakthroughs You've Always Wanted

by Russ Gundrum View author's profile page

Unlike any other book in the world, this book discloses important, new information in the computer networking field that has never been brought to your attention! The technical facts of many problems affecting telecommunication and computer networks haven't changed since the author wrote his first book on the subject in 1982, but the equipment and network applications sure have, along with their solutions. And there's a whole new generation of engineers, managers, and technicians who aren't familiar with the past development and history of these networks, but who could benefit greatly from that knowledge. This is especially the case in the local area networking (LAN) environment and the backhaul networks that are being used to provide Wi-Fi and 5G wireless access. It's the author's sincere hope and desire that what the reader discovers in this book will be very helpful in designing, installing, and maintaining very cost-effective, reliable, and high-performance computer and telecom networks. This kind of information is especially needed in the age of the Internet of Things, as well as understanding that you don't have to use fiber optic cables in order to achieve these successful results!

• Understanding all the issues affecting the performance and reliability of high-speed computer and telecom wireline networks

• Being able to quickly identify potential service-affecting problems and correct them before the customer or user experiences them

• Explaining in simple terms to your boss, customer, or other technical personnel why certain "mysterious" and strange things can occur in the operation of a network application and how equipment can also be damaged as a result

• Being aware of what can cause an unhappy customer experience that could lead to them lodging a complaint or even seeking another service provider out of frustration

• Learning how to prevent lost revenue, wasted work hours spent on unproductive efforts, and other ineffective measures from occurring

• Realizing that the solutions to these problems aren't rocket science and aren't being taught anymore, which is why you need to read this book since there's not another one like it on the subject!
