Course Description

Networking Bootcamp In a world where everything is connected to each other forming a big network, it is necessary for a person to know the basics of networking to know how to administer a network. A successful network administration is the key to a successful business, and to attain this success, you ought to know the intricacies of networks. A network comprises all the hardware and software components involved in connecting computers across small and large distances. An internetwork is a collection of independent networks connected by different networking devices. A computer network refers to a set of different computers connected using networking devices like routers, switches, or hubs. Each computer in the network is configured using a protocol for communication. The computers can be connected by LAN, WAN, token ring, or FDDI. This course explains the basic principles of network related to architecture, operations and security.
