Packet Guide to Routing and Switching

This book will cover structure, behavior and fields, all of which will be supported by packet captures and analysis. This second installment will cover layers 2 and 3 and is concerned with the key protocols and operations. It is meant to be a follow up to the first book in the sense that these are more advanced ideas that assume and/or build on the previous ideas. For example, it is difficult to understand routing without first understanding IP. This book will be written to a depth that will serve experts and those first learning about these topics.
