Learn practical guidelines for designing and deploying a scalable BGP routing architecture * Up-to-date coverage of BGP features like performance tuning, multiprotocol BGP, MPLS VPN, and multicast BGP * In-depth coverage of advanced BGP topics to help design a complex BGP routing architecture * Practical design tips that have been proven in the field * Extensive configuration examples and case studies BGP Design and Implementation focuses on real-world problems and provides not only design solutions, but also the background on why they are appropriate and a practical overview of how they apply into a top-down design. The BGP protocol is being used in both service provider and enterprise networks. The design goals of these two groups are different, leading to different architectures being used in each environment. The title breaks out the separate goals, and resulting solutions for each group to assist the reader in further understanding different solution strategies. This book starts by identifying key features and functionality in BGP. It then delves into the topics of performance tuning, routing policy development, and architectural scalability. It progresses by examining the challenges for both the service provider and enterprise customers, and provides practical guidelines and a design framework for each. BGP Design and Implementation finishes up by closely looking at the more recent extensions to BGP through Multi-Protocol BGP for MPLS-VPN, IP Multicast, IPv6, and CLNS. Each chapter is generally organized into the following sections: Introduction, Design and Implementation Guidelines, Case Studies, and Summary.

Dov Seidman joins us on Edgewise to discuss his book How: Why How We Do Anything Means Everything. Dov states that "we live in a world where what we do matters, but it doesn't matter as much as how we do what we do"; we are in a new era of behavior where our actions can affect so much more in ways they never could in the past. This is especially important to acknowledge as behavior has become the greatest source of our competitive advantage.

CEO of Parkwood Corp, chairman and CEO of the Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel Foundation, Morton Mandel has reached great success in both his financial and personal life. In his book It's All About Who... Morton talks about his humble beginnings from working a summer job for his uncle in the wholesale auto parts business, to owning that same business with his brothers in July 1940. Though Morton joined the Army in World War II and left the business world behind him, it wasn't until after the war Morton and his brothers took a hard look at why their business was struggling to turn a major profit. Morton and his brothers realized that in an over-saturated market you have to come up with a different solution to attract customers; that sometimes business owners need to take a step back to see what their customers really need. What they learned propelled them into the future to live richer lives both monetarily and in the quality of life. Now Morton shares what he has learned about what a CEO is worth and how to hire and maintain "A employees". AMA is a world-class leadership development provider in more than 40 countries worldwide.

Technology has always been used to enhance manual system making them automated, resulting to less effort, time and cost. It is meant to automate processes in many fields. By looking at the live examples of new ways of selling, buying, banking, transportation, marketing and even news distribution, it is apparent that everything had become much easier than before by utilizing various technologies. Technology, therefore, is a key of development in many aspects. This book discusses how we can utilize mobile devices and web service technology to enhance the current queue system which will help both the service provider (e.g. business) and the customer and increase productivity, performance and reduce cost and time for both parties. It is about a mobile application that helps the users to interact with the service provider by withdrawing a queue ticket without the need to be physically present in the service providers' premises. It enables customers (users) to book a queue remotely for any services of any registered organization with this solution. It is an enhancement of the current traditional Queue System.

The company offers a wide product portfolio from personal computers (PC), notebooks, serves, storage, printers, scanners, and digital camera to IT services. The company features a phenomenal growth history and has developed from a 'garage' with a working capital of $538 in 1938 to a leading global provider with $100 billion revenue. However the global competition becomes fiercer today and HP has to face with different competitors in all business segments. Can HP continue its success story and beat the global competitors? This question will be tried to answer in the present study. In this study the internal and external environment factors effecting HP's business are analyzed. Thereby industry's economic features and competitive environment, e.g. market segments, market size and growth, trends, competition, and driving forces are studied. Moreover, the SWOT of HP and its biggest global competitors as well as financial performance of HP over the last three business years (2005 - 2007) are analyzed. The diversified business portfolio of HP is evaluated using the Nine Cell Matrix and concrete recommendations for the senior management board of HP are provided.
