Free sample

If your organization is gearing up for IPv6, this in-depth book provides the practical information and guidance you need to plan for, design, and implement this vastly improved protocol. Author Silvia Hagen takes system and network administrators, engineers, and network designers through the technical details of IPv6 features and functions, and provides options for those who need to integrate IPv6 with their current IPv4 infrastructure.

The flood of Internet-enabled devices has made migrating to IPv6 a paramount concern worldwide. In this updated edition, Hagen distills more than ten years of studying, working with, and consulting with enterprises on IPv6. It’s the only book of its kind.

IPv6 Essentials covers:

  • Address architecture, header structure, and the ICMPv6 message format
  • IPv6 mechanisms such as Neighbor Discovery, Stateless Address autoconfiguration, and Duplicate Address detection
  • Network-related aspects and services: Layer 2 support, Upper Layer Protocols, and Checksums
  • IPv6 security: general practices, IPSec basics, IPv6 security elements, and enterprise security models
  • Transitioning to IPv6: dual-stack operation, tunneling, and translation techniques
  • Mobile IPv6: technology for a new generation of mobile services
  • Planning options, integration scenarios, address plan, best practices, and dos and don’ts

About the author

Silvia Hagen is the author of the successful book IPv6 Essentials published by O'Reilly. She is owner and CEO of the Swiss Consulting and Education company Sunny Connection, which specializes in IPv6 and network and application performance troubleshooting. She has worked with IPv6 for more than 10 years by writing, teaching, and consulting enterprises in Europe and the United States for the integration of IPv6. She is the president of the Swiss IPv6 Council, which is a non-profit platform to support the integration of IPv6 in Switzerland. As a result of these activities, Switzerland was the first country to reach a double digit user adoption rate (10% in April 2013) and has therefore received the Jim Bound Award of the International IPv6 Forum for IPv6 World Leadership.

In her private time, Silvia likes to read, listen to music and go to concerts, meet with friends, be out in nature walking with her dog, and tend to her garden.

Cisco routers are everywhere that networks are. They come in all sizes, from inexpensive units for homes and small offices to equipment costing well over $100,000 and capable of routing at gigabit speeds. A fixture in today's networks, Cisco claims roughly 70% of the router market, producing high-end switches, hubs, and other network hardware. One unifying thread runs through the product line: virtually all of Cisco's products run the Internetwork Operating System, or IOS.

If you work with Cisco routers, it's likely that you deal with Cisco's IOS software--an extremely powerful and complex operating system, with an equally complex configuration language. With a cryptic command-line interface and thousands of commands--some of which mean different things in different situations--it doesn't have a reputation for being user-friendly.

Fortunately, there's help. This second edition of Cisco IOS in a Nutshell consolidates the most important commands and features of IOS into a single, well-organized volume that you'll find refreshingly user-friendly.

This handy, two-part reference covers IOS configuration for the TCP/IP protocol family. The first section includes chapters on the user interface, configuring lines and interfaces, access lists, routing protocols, and dial-on-demand routing and security. A brief, example-filled tutorial shows you how to accomplish common tasks.

The second part is a classic O'Reilly quick reference to all the commands for working with TCP/IP and the lower-level protocols on which it relies. Brief descriptions and lists of options help you zero in on the commands you for the task at hand. Updated to cover Cisco IOS Software Major Release 12.3, this second edition includes lots of examples of the most common configuration steps for the routers themselves. It's a timely guide that any network administrator will come to rely on.

Written by networking veteran with 20 years of experience, Network Warrior provides a thorough and practical introduction to the entire network infrastructure, from cabling to the routers. What you need to learn to pass a Cisco certification exam such as CCNA and what you need to know to survive in the real world are two very different things. The strategies that this book offers weren 't on the exam, but they 're exactly what you need to do your job well.

Network Warrior takes you step by step through the world of hubs, switches, firewalls, and more, including ways to troubleshoot a congested network, and when to upgrade and why. Along the way, you 'll gain an historical perspective of various networking features, such as the way Ethernet evolved. Based on the author 's own experience as well as those he worked for and with, Network Warrior is a Cisco-centric book, focused primarily on the TCP/IP protocol and Ethernet networks -- the realm that Cisco Systems now dominates. The book covers:

The type of networks now in use, from LANs, WANs and MANs to CANs



The OSI Model and the layers involved in sending dataHubs, repeaters, switches, and trunks in practiceAuto negotiation and why it 's a common problem in network slowdownsRoute maps, routing protocols, and switching algorithms in Cisco routersThe resilient Ethernet -- how to make things truly redundantCisco 6500 multi-layer switches and the Catalyst 3750 switchTelecom nomenclature -- why it 's different from the data worldT1 and DS3Firewall theory, designing access lists, authentication in Cisco devicesServer load balancing technologyContent switch module in actionDesigning QOS and what QOS does not doIP design and subnetting made easy



The book also explains how to sell your ideas to management, how networks become a mess as a company grows, and why change control is your friend. Network Warrior will help network administrators and engineers win the complex battles they face every day.

What once seemed nearly impossible has turned into reality. The number of available Internet addresses is now nearly exhausted, due mostly to the explosion of commercial websites and entries from an expanding number of countries. This growing shortage has effectively put the Internet community--and some of its most brilliant engineers--on alert for the last decade.Their solution was to create IPv6, a new Internet standard which will ultimately replace the current and antiquated IPv4. As the new backbone of the Internet, this new protocol would fix the most difficult problems that the Internet faces today--scalability and management. And even though IPv6's implementation has met with some resistance over the past few years, all signs are now pointing to its gradual worldwide adoption in the very near future. Sooner or later, all network administrators will need to understand IPv6, and now is a good time to get started.IPv6 Network Administration offers administrators the complete inside info on IPv6. This book reveals the many benefits as well as the potential downsides of this next-generation protocol. It also shows readers exactly how to set up and administer an IPv6 network.A must-have for network administrators everywhere, IPv6 Network Administration delivers an even-handed approach to what will be the most fundamental change to the Internet since its inception. Some of the other IPv6 assets that are covered include:routingintegrated auto-configurationquality-of-services (QoS)enhanced mobilityend-to-end securityIPv6 Network Administration explains what works, what doesn't, and most of all, what's practical when considering upgrading networks from the current protocol to IPv6.
