Today′s aggressively competitive networking market requires offering the maximum range of services using prevailing assets, not building bigger, more complicated networks, but smarter, more scalable infrastructures. It isn′t an easy thing to do.

The challenge is to develop an existing network so as to maximise its profitability. A multi–vendor approach to the subject is necessary, since existing infrastructure is rarely homogeneous. Discussion cannot merely be rooted in theory, but has to bring to the fore actual designs and real development.

Guy Davies′s invaluable reference tool is the product of many years′ experience in designing and developing real scalable systems for both service providers and enterprise networks. It is a comprehensive demonstration of how to build scalable networks, the pitfalls to avoid, and a compilation of the most successful mechanisms available for engineers building and operating IP networks.

Designing and Developing Scalable IP Networks:

  • Documents practical scaling mechanisms for both service providers and enterprise networks using illustrative real world configuration examples.
  • Recommends policy choices and explains them in the context of the commercial environment.
  • Provides a reference for engineers building and migrating networks based on the author′s familiarity with both Juniper Networks′ components and Cisco Systems′ routers.
  • Is founded on the author s experience working with large networks in the USA and Europe, as well as Asia Pacific.
This incomparable reference to scaling networks is suitable for network designers, architects, engineers and managers. It will also be an authoritative guide for technically aware sales and marketing staff and service engineers. It is a valuable resource for graduate and final year computing and communications engineering students and for engineers studying for both the JNCIE and CCIE examinations.
