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!
