In this chapter, we have
at a number of network technologies that are becoming more and more common in the corporate network infrastructure. Most of these technologies are used in long-haul data communications: everything from WAN solutions, to Fibre Channel, and finally two technologies to offer traditional IP solutions but
virtual technologies ”VLAN and VPN. We have not gone into great depth with any of these subjects because each commands an entire book of its own. What we have done is to highlight their key features, benefits, and costs! Being a CSE, you may come across these technologies, and it is an
of these technologies that we are aiming for in this chapter. Further study will be necessary should additional hands-on information be required. During our discussions, I have tried to point you to additional sources of information as well as to http://docs.hp.com. This concludes our discussion on Other Network Technologies.
