Descrizione prodotto


In his Preface, John Drummond Montgomery says: “Rock Solid Ethernet
is actually a great read. Intuitively, a textbook on Ethernet should not be a great read and I pondered this seeming anomaly for the five days it took me to read this book. One reason Rock Solid Ethernet is a great read is precisely because it is not a ‘textbook on Ethernet’, it is the ‘Bible on Ethernet’, written in the form of a discussion between colleages about really interesting and relevant concepts concerning the place and use of Ethernet in the entertainment and industrial setting.”
The book is intended for all those involved in the use of Ethernet in a harsh environment, and the bulk of it is aimed at Entertainment Technology – one of the harshest environments available. It will be useful for both the experienced network engineer and the DMX512 tech making a first exploration into networks, and it is intended to address this new subject at a number of levels.
It is relevant to end users and system specifiers, system installers, manufacturers and developers, and has been organised in such as way that each group of users has a specific chapter but can dip into other sections for additional reference.
Wayne Howell studied physics at Birmingham University, specialising in nuclear structure. It was there that he discovered a passion for the industry; working with live sound, show lighting and a TV studio. It was an exciting time, offering opportunities such as lighting new bands as UB40. Having gained a degree, he then freelanced with companies such as LSD, gaining experience in the rock & roll world. He then joined Avolites as a wireman and the next five years saw a progression from wireman to production manager to service manager and then to product design.
In 1988 he started Artistic Licence as a projects design house. Success came quickly, with end clients ranging from Pink Floyd to The Rolling Stones, and from this early project work a product range evolved. The company is now considered a leader in many technology areas, not least the use of Ethernet in Entertainment Technology, and is an active participant in the ESTA DMX512-A, RDM and ACN programmes.

After completing his degree, he freelanced in the Rock & Roll world before joining stage lighting specialists Avolites, where he remained for five years. In 1988, Wayne founded Artistic Licence as a projects design house. Success came quickly, with end clients including Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones. From such project work a product range evolved. In the 1990s, Wayne was a major contributor to the development of DMX512-A and Remote Device Management (RDM) via the ESTA (now PLASA) technical standards programme. But he is perhaps best known as the inventor of Art-Net, the free, public domain Ethernet protocol now supported by 200-plus manufacturers worldwide. Artistic Licence has expanded and diversified into the architectural lighting and buildings management sectors. As a result, Wayne s accumulated knowledge of control protocols is second to none. It gives him great satisfaction to be able to share this expertise through his books, articles and seminars.

I hate to harp on Wayne Howell, a longtime presence in the entertainment industry and the founder of Artistic Licence.

But unfortunately, this book was a major disappointment. While I expected it to be outdated, with a publication date of 2004, the problems go far beyond that.

As an experienced network administrator, I already know Ethernet well. So I was able to pick up on the many technical errors, omissions, and non-standard language used. I didn't make a list of issues, but if I had it would have been several pages long. A particularly glaring example I recall is when he discusses "Managed" versus "Unmanaged" networks. What he described is nothing even remotely close to how those terms are used in the IT networking world. Elsewhere, he talks briefly about Power over Ethernet, but never references how it's commonly labeled or pronounced - PoE.

Most shockingly, he manages to go through the entire "end user" section of the book without ever showing an IP address, nevermind explaining IP addressing. He has the book split into User, Installer, and Manufacturer sections. Other sections talk more about IP, but... really, installers and manufacturers should already know this stuff, end users are the ones that need to be taught about TCP/IP. (After reading the user section, I basically gave up on the book and only scanned the other two sections, so I can't say much for those parts).

He also never shows an example of a MAC address (and possibly never even explains what it is, though he references it). Ethernet without MAC addresses don't exist.

In fact, there are many things that are referenced to but never explained. There are however a number of sidebars that explain other facts and stories that, frankly, have no value. The weirdest was the one on baud rates, which simply doesn't apply to Ethernet.

Technical content aside, the writing itself is painful to read. It's obvious a competent editor has never touched this, nor even a basic proofreader.

For a far better explanation of both Ethernet and TCP/IP in the entertainment industry, I would suggest Show Networks and Control Systems: Formerly "Control Systems for Live Entertainment", by John Huntington. (Make sure to order the 2012 book, not older editions). The book is focused on show control, but talks a great deal about networks and properly explains TCP/IP and Ethernet. Unfortunately even that book only covers the basics. I'm still looking for the book that really talks in depth about how networks are used in real shows.

I really find this book useful, I`m not an experienced IT but it has given me many answers about Ethernet and it use in the entertainment industry and the tables for me are very useful because I can compare. to me it has been useful.
I recommend it

Downloaded this book without being able to review it. The information in it can be searched for free. I am really disappointed in the lack of useful content.

This book is useless if you want concrete detail and understanding of Ethernet. Advise you to buy something else.

This is not a book on the subject, rather its a cut and paste of free content into a pdf.

Dont waste your money.
