1.0.1 Chapter Introduction
Page 1:
We now stand at a critical turning point in the use of technology to extend and empower our humannetwork . The globalization of theInternethas succeeded faster than anyone could have imagined. The manner in which social, commercial, political and personalinteractions occur is rapidly changing to keep up with the evolution of this globalnetwork. In the next stage of our development, innovators will use the Internet as astarting point for their efforts - creating new products and services specifically designedto take advantage of the network capabilities. As developers push the limits of what is possible, the capabilities of the interconnected networks that form the Internet will playan increasing role in the success of these projects.This chapter introduces the platform of  data networksupon which our social and business relationships increasingly depend. The material lays the groundwork for exploring theservices, technologies, and issues encountered by network professionals as they design, build, and maintain the modern network.In this chapter, you will learn to:
Describe how networks impact our daily lives.
Describe the role of data networking in the human network.
Identify the key components of any data network.
Identify the opportunities and challenges posed by converged networks.
Describe the characteristics of network architectures: fault tolerance, scalability,quality of service and security.

1.1 Communicating in a Network-Centric World
1.1.1 Networks Supporting the Way We Live
Page 1:
Among all of the essentials for human existence, the need to interact with others ranks just below our need to sustain life. Communication is almost as important to us as our reliance on air, water, food, and shelter.The methods that we use to share ideas and information are constantly changing andevolving. Whereas the human network was once limited to face-to-face conversations,media  breakthroughs continue to extend the reach of our communications. From the printing press to television, each new development has improved and enhanced our communication.
As with every advance in communication technology, the creation and interconnection of robust data networks is having a profound effect.Early data networks were limited to exchanging character-based information betweenconnected computer systems. Current networks have evolved to carry voice, videostreams, text, and graphics between many different types of devices. Previously separateand distinct communication forms have converged onto a common platform. This platform provides access to a wide range of alternative and new communication methodsthat enable people to interact directly with each other almost instantaneously.The immediate nature of communications over the Internet encourages the formation of global communities. These communities foster social interaction that is independent of location or time zone.Display Visual Media 
Page 2:The Global Community
Technology is perhaps the most significant change agent in the world today, as it helps tocreate a world in which national borders, geographic distances, and physical limitations become less relevant, and present ever-diminishing obstacles. The creation of onlinecommunities for the exchange of ideas and information has the potential to increase productivity opportunities across the globe. As the Internet connects people and promotesunfettered communication, it presents the platform on which to run businesses, to addressemergencies, to inform individuals, and to support education, science, and government.
