Network Recovery is the first book to provide detailed information on protecting and restoring communication networks, and it sets a sky-high standard for any that may follow. Inside, youâll learn specific techniques that work at each layer of the networking hierarchyâincluding optical, SONET-SDH, IP, and MPLSâas well as multi-layer escalation strategies that offer the highest level of protection. The authors begin with an incisive introduction to the issues that define the field of network protection and restoration, and as the book progresses they explain everything you need to know about the relevant protocols, providing theoretical analyses wherever appropriate. If you work for a network-dependent organization, large or small, youâll want to keep Network Recovery within reach at all times.
