Internet Protocol (IP) is the chosen protocol for the revolutionary convergence of telephony and data. While the initial design of IP addressing enabled the Internet to grow exponentially over the last decade, network engineers are constantly challenged to design and implement ever more efficient addressing schemes. The impact of a poorly designed addressing architecture on an enterprise wide network can be catastrophic. This book provides you with complete coverage of the latest strategies, configurations scenarios, tips, techniques and warnings to successfully deploy and IP Addressing and Subnetting scheme on your network, including coverage of IPv4, NAT, VLSM, BOOTP and DHCP, Multicast, and IPv6.
