• Understanding Networking Fundamentals

    Build a foundation of networking knowledge in a real-world, multi-vendor environment. Course Overview A strong foundation of basic networking concepts is fundamental to a successful career in information technology. Networking technologies underlie all IT activities and a strong comprehension of the hardware and protocols used to create networks is essential to future success. In this broad-based foundational course, you will move step-by-step through the basics of data networking, practicing with leading-edge technologies from Cisco and Microsoft. You will gain practical skills in IP address configuration of a workstation, identifying and calculating appropriate subnet masks, examining and manipulating address resolution protocol (ARP) and domain name system (DNS) caches on a workstation, using ping to verify connectivity, basic wireless router configuration, and the simple use of a protocol analyzer to examine local area network (LAN) communications. With a strong foundation and an understanding of basic network functions, standards, and protocols, you will be prepared to tackle advanced networking skills, including Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), security, wireless integration, and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
