Cisco DQOS Exam Certification Guide (IP Telephony by Wendell Odom

By Wendell Odom

CiscoPress's "Cisco DQOS examination Certification advisor" via Odom is a best-of-class ebook. The ebook isn't really for the meek - weighing in at over 850 pages, the ebook is a large funding of time and effort to correctly savour. whereas the ebook used to be often written to be applied for a couple of QoS checks, i might count on to work out this publication at the bookshelf of many CCIEs or CCIE wannabes (including myself).

The fantastic thing about this publication is that it covers QoS in a intensity that isn't equaled somewhere else. for instance, the book's first bankruptcy, easily an outline of QoS, is sort of eighty pages (some overview)! the 1st bankruptcy succinctly describes the diversities and nuances of the enemies of QoS - hold up, jitter, bandwidth and packet loss. the second one and 3rd chapters do a good justice at attempting to clarify the dizzying array of instruments to be had to regulate QoS - the several periods of instruments and the variations among type and staining. And so forth..., each one bankruptcy does an exceptional activity at explaining the mysteries of QoS.

Of direction, with any publication of such complexity, typos needs to be anticipated. typos that i spotted are:
-on web page 333, i think the right kind Bc may be 93.75ms.
-on web page 456, FRED can fit on layer four, now not layer three protocols

If I had a `Top 10' for books that i think will be worthy for the CCIE, i might position this publication at the record. i have never been capable of finding an identical factors for QoS on Cisco's site or in different networking books.

I supply this publication five pings out of five:
