Are you planning to install your first local area network, or to upgrade and expand an existing one? If so, this book will help you choose LAN systems that are compatible with your business objectives and that best exploit the current technological opportunities. In an understandable and non-technical style, this book helps you avoid potential pitfalls by identifying key factors to consider in the selection of each LAN component. A concluding case study draws together all the issues discussed to provide an overall perspective. This book will help you answer the following questions: What are the components of a LAN and where can I buy them? Should I go for Ethenet or Token Ring? How do I choose the best supplier? Should I go for a structured cabling system? What is a network operating system and do I need one? What other devices can I put on my network apart from PCs? How can I connect my networks even if they are different? How do I choose my own LAN? How do I design my network so that it will last and can be easily extended? What is an open system and is it important to me and my network? How do I manage and maintain my network?
