Managers and network personnel who are currently using FDDI, planning on using FDDI, or just want to keep up to date in this rapidly changing field will find, in this text, detailed coverage of the practical aspects of planning, installing, and managing a metropolitan area network (MAN) and local area network (LAN) using FDDI technology. FDDI networks are based on the token-ring protocol and transmit data 6 to 10 times faster than any other LAN standard. Emphasizing practicality, the author uses case studies to illustrate important management and implementation techniques and troubleshooting methods. The book details connection methodologies for high-story office buildings, multiple building campuses and distributed computing environments; as well as network operations requiring the 100 Mbits/s bandwidth, security features, and interoperability provided by FDDI. Readers will also find complete installation procedures for the mechanical components of FDDI networks; and complete troubleshooting techniques for isolating hardware, software, and network operating system problems.
