INTRODUCTION How to Use This Guide Understanding a new technology is a lot like taking a hike on an unfamiliar trail. It helps to have a guide. Well, since we can't hike along with you, we thought we'd do the next best thing: provide a trail guide that will help you chart your course. We're assuming, by the way, that you're not a completely uninitiated hiker. That is, you've got some basic familiarity with data communi- cations and basic internetworking concepts, as well as data communications devices and their functions. Like any good trail guide, we've tried to present the informa- tion in an easy-to-read format. Stop at the Base Camp in each chapter. That's where you'll find out what information is in that chapter and how it's organized. Typically, the Basic Trail will of- fer the fundamental information about the chapter topic. On the Advanced Trail , you'll get more challenging information. Here, we'll go into a little more depth on the topic and use a few more tech- nical terms. The Base camp will also list the View Points in each chapter. You guessed it. ..the things to look at. Tables, diagrams, figures. Finally, if you've only got 20 minutes or so, take the Shortcut. We believe that most network planners will benefit by reading this guide from cover to cover. But we also know that if you're involved in networking today, your hectic schedule may force you to skim through this booklet for highlights until you can find a quiet moment to read more thoroughly. The Shortcuts contain summaries of the major points you should know about frame relay networking.
