TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is a set of computer-to-computer data communications protocols first developed in the late 1970s. TCP/IP is the basis of the Internet, and has gained ground as a replacement for proprietary networking protocols. Addressing within a TCP/IP network has become a growing concern for networking managers.
A concise handbook on how to design optimal IP addressing schemes that take into account network growth, address utilization, routing efficiency, and ease of administration. It is written for networking professionals who are responsible for designing or maintaining a TCP/IP network. The book covers such topics as host versus network addressing, special case addressing, efficiency and optimization, IP address subnetting, and Classless Interdomain Routing. It also provides tutorials to help thoroughly explain these concepts.
