"This [book's] main strengths are addressing a revolutionary subject in networking, handling a principal change in the network infrastructure, emphasizing the need of open standards, evaluating strategies and solutions from leading suppliers, and preparing enterprises for more efficient ways of networking. ... The approach is good, and the selection of topics is good as well. ... This book will help enterprise CIOs and CTOs redesign their networks. Furthermore, it will help them sit down to serious talks with suppliers. This book also will help graduate and Ph.D students get the basics for future network infrastructure design, help suppliers select the right standards and architectures for their future switch and router products, and help solution providers select and implement the right standards and architectures combined with the best of suites of products."
