A comprehensive introduction to the theory and practical applications of content networking
Content networking is the most popular technology used to enhance network and application performance. The growth of content networking has been driven by end-user demands for richer content and lowered response times. These demands have caused the field of content networking to flourish with technological advances. Today many companies use content networking to add a layer of intelligence to their systems, scaling server availability and optimizing content delivery.
Content Networking Fundamentals introduces you to content networking solutions and the underlying networking technologies that content networking uses to accelerate your applications in new and unique ways. You’ll discover various algorithms behind content networking and learn how the Cisco Systems® product suite implements them.
In this comprehensive guide, you start with a review of the protocols required for content networking, building your knowledge of introductory concepts and applications. From there, you delve into the components specific to content networking, with a focus on the content-aware Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) Layers 4 through 7. Numerous deployment examples help you understand the more advanced topics. You can use the configuration snapshots in this book as skeletal configurations for your production network.
Following the valuable lessons taught in Content Networking Fundamentals, you’ll be able to effectively design, deploy, maintain, and troubleshoot content networks.

Everything Between the Author and the User's Eyeballs,
This review is from: Content Networking Fundamentals (Paperback)Content Networking is a kind of loosely defined term to describe an overall network that can contain just about everything: mail, web, file transfer, video conferencing, VoIP. It is generally broken down into three segments: Originators, Network Infrastructure, Recipients.
This book covers the gamut of all of these subjects, a la Cisco. It is intended for the people who must design, purchase, implement, and maintain such networks. Of course if you are interested in the Cisco CCNP content networking exam this is the book.
Many of the subjects in this book, in fact probably all of them, have dedicated books oriented to that single subject. But in this book it is all tied together to give an overall grasp of everything that is involved in such networks. It covers everything about getting the information from its source to the end user. And it does this in a highly readable manner.
