Train for the workplace: Job-ready detail. In the past, interviewers often asked students to name the OSI layers and stopped at that. Today, however, even interviewers for non-networking jobs require applicants to understand the details of networking. To help students prepare, this text goes beyond the basic topology and switch operation, covering topics like:


  * VLANs.


  * Link aggregation.


  * The Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol.


  * Overprovisioning versus priority.


  * Switch purchasing considerations.


  * And more!
