Token Ring Networks: Design, Implementation and Management is intended as a bridge between the many general purpose texts about local area networks and the detailed manuals available from suppliers of token ring network products.
In most organisations the decision on the type of network to be chosen is primarily dictated by the type of computer system being used and the challenge for analysts and managers is to do the best possible job of designing, implementing and managing a token ring network. The challenge is greater now that the data communications industry is moving rapidly into the third generation of local area networks. These are frequently enterprise-wide systems with hundreds of users and need enhanced management capabilities. John Abrahams draws on his wealth of experience and gives valuable guidance on the ways in which token ring networks can be designed, implemented and managed; concentrates on the practical aspects of mainstream solutions to network problems; draws on exclusive case studies from the UK and North America; and discusses network products where necessary to illuminate the choices necessary in the detailed specification of a particular token ring network.
This comprehensive book will be invaluable to all technical staff and managers with responsibility for introducing and implementing local area networks and will also be of great interest to prospective users of LAN technology.
