The authors of Practical Network Design Techniques, Second Edition: A Complete Guide for WANs and LANs build upon the popular first edition by combining pre-existing network design fundamentals with new material on LAN devices and topologies, wireless local networks, and LAN internetworking issues.

This new edition has two parts. The first part focuses on wide area networks; the second, which is entirely new, focuses on local area networks. Because Ethernet emerged victorious in the LAN war, the second section pays particular attention to Ethernet design and performance characteristics.

The volume retains much valuable information from the first edition, and integrates and prominently highlights WAN information that is also relevant to the LAN design process.

To maximize the book's utility, the authors include a number of practical networking problems and their solutions, along with examples of methods needed to perform economic comparisons among differing communications services and hardware configurations. The second edition provides a thorough understanding of major network design problems and is an invaluable reference for data communications professionals.

CRC Press
Focusing on the scientific aspect of network design, Practical Network Design Techniques uses mathematical models to illustrate important networking concepts and show how to solve many common design problems. Taking an inclusive approach, the author examines the cost and performance issues that can also be used by network analysts and designers as tools and techniques to optimize existing networks with respect to their cost or performance. He examines reports generated by communications equipment to obtain an understanding of how different report elements can be used to tailor the cost or performance of a network segment.

Book News
A textbook developed from lecture notes and articles by Georgia-based consultant Held. The 1991 first edition (reprinted in 1994 and 1996) focused primarily on wide-area networks. This edition incorporates most of that material into the first section, and adds a second on local-area networks. The emphasis is on practical steps and problems encountered designing a network.
