OK, the very next article in this column will go through the process of designing IP solutions. The how to's, the where to's and the what to's. After that, we will take one column for each process of the system and slowly, over the next few weeks, we will design a fairly in-depth IP solution. Will this make you an expert? Probably not. But it will open your eyes up and make your job easier and more profitable. See ya in a couple of weeks.
