About the Author
Diane Teare is a professional in the networking, training, and e-learning fields. She has more than
20 years of experience in designing, implementing, and troubleshooting network hardware and
software and has also been involved in teaching, course design, and project management. She has
extensive knowledge of network design and routing technologies and is an instructor with one of
the largest authorized Cisco Learning Partners. She was recently the Director of e-Learning for
the same company, where she was responsible for planning and supporting all the company’s
e-learning offerings in Canada, including Cisco courses. Diane has a bachelor’s degree in applied
science in electrical engineering (BASc) and a master’s degree in applied science in management
science (MASc). She is a certified Cisco instructor and currently holds her CCNP and CCDP
certifications. She coauthored the Cisco Press titles Campus Network Design Fundamentals, the
three editions of Building Scalable Cisco Internetworks (BSCI), and Building Scalable Cisco
Networks. She also edited the first edition of this book and Designing Cisco Networks.

About the Technical Reviewers
Shawn Boyd is a senior network consultant for ARP Technologies, Inc. He has worldwide
experience in consulting on many different projects, such as security/VoIP for Cisco Systems
Israel, intrusion prevention for Top Layer Networks of Boston, and DSL infrastructure rollout for
Telus Canada. Shawn is also active in course development and is a certified Cisco instructor with
ARP Technologies, Inc., responsible for teaching most of the Cisco curriculum. He has coauthored
IT security–related books for Cisco Press and has been a technical editor on a few Cisco Press
Self-Study Guides. His background is in network security and design at a service provider level.
He has worked for Canada’s largest telco providers, performing network designs and
implementations, and was lead contact on many large government contracts.
Richard Piquard is a senior network architect for Global Knowledge Network, Inc. He has more
than seven years of experience as a certified Cisco instructor, teaching introductory and advanced
routing, switching, design, and voice-related courses throughout North America and Europe.
Richard has a highly diverse skill set in design and implementation of both Cisco and multivendor
environments. His experience in the industry ranges from his military background as the network
chief of the Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico, Virginia, to a field engineer for the Xylan
Corporation (Alcatel), Calabasas, California, to a member of a four-person, worldwide network
planning and implementation team for the Household Finance Corporation, Chicago.


This book is dedicated to my wonderful husband, Allan Mertin, whose optimism inspires
me; to our captivating son, Nicholas, and his enthusiastic curiosity and quest for
knowledge; to my parents, Syd and Beryl, for their continuous love and support; and to
my friends, including “the Girls,” for continuing to help me keep my sanity!

I would like to thank the many people who helped put this book together, including the following:
The Cisco Press team—Brett Bartow, the executive editor, for driving this book through the
process, and his continued support over the years. Vanessa Evans was instrumental in organizing
the logistics and administration. Eric Stewart, the development editor, has been invaluable in
producing a high-quality manuscript. I would also like to thank Tonya Simpson for her excellent
work in shepherding this book through the editorial process. Thanks also to Richard Froom, Balaji
Sivasubramanian, and Erum Frahim, the authors of Cisco Press’s Building Cisco Multilayer
Switched Networks (BCMSN), Fourth Edition.
The Cisco Systems team—Many thanks to the members of the team who developed the latest
version of the DESGN course. The team included two people from Chesapeake Netcraftsmen:
Carole Warner Reece and Peter Welcher. Members of the team from Cisco Systems included
Dennis Masters, Dwayne Fields, Pat Lao, Bill Chadwick, Bob Eckoff, Bob Ligett, Drew Blair, and
the project manager, Dan Stern.
The technical reviewers—I would like to thank the technical reviewers of this book, Shawn Boyd
and Richard Piquard, for their comprehensive, detailed review and beneficial input.
My family—Of course, this book would not have been possible without the constant
understanding and tolerance of my family, who have lived through the many weekends and nights
it took to complete it. Special thanks to Nicholas for always making sure I got lots of hugs!
