DescriptionFrom University Video Communications' catalog:
"James Forster explores the problems of multiprotocol routing in large networks. He reviews the basics of routing protocols, including switching vs. routing (packet forwarding vs. path determination), attributes of routing protocols, metrics for routing, and classes of routing algorithms (distance vector and link state). Next he presents real world issues, including the need for advanced protocol features, such as dynamic load adaption, asymmetric load sharing, and administrative trust models. Finally, he comments on the engineering process in a rapidly changing field."
