 Strategies for Managing Large Networks

"While small companies are able to work with simple configurations using static, point-to-point network links, that solution is wholly inadequate for sites with hundreds or thousands of servers and workstations. Dynamic routing eases the pain by putting intelligence into the network infrastructure, eliminating the need for human intervention when changes happen in the network topology. However, building such large networks takes some planning and forethought. This article, the first of two features on routing, introduces you to the possibilities and issues of large-scale network design. Next month, you'll learn how to apply Linux routers in your network."
