Local Area Network Management, Design and Security A Practical Approach by Arne Mikalsen, Per Borgesen

Local Area Network Management, Design and Security A Practical Approach



Local Area Network Management, Design and Security A Practical Approach by Arne Mikalsen, Per Borgesen

How to use LANs to help your company grow A vital component of today's business, Local Area Networks (LANs) allow organizations to link their computers together for maximum work sharing, collaboration among geographically disparate teams, and other essential business functions. This book helps system administrators and IT professionals set up LANs and Intranets in a way that will contribute to their company's growth and success. Beginning with the theoretical foundation for LAN operation and design, it covers the applicable data communications principles, then goes on to explore both LAN hardware and infrastructure design, network operating systems, LAN management and security. The book also gives a practical introduction to the world's most popular network operating systems--Windows 2000, Novell NetWare, and Linux. Finally, the book takes an in-depth look at business and management issues, with special emphasis given to the impact of Intranets on business goals.
