About this course:

Learn network communications--from the basics of network topologies, OSI layering, and Ethernet to networking hardware and packet-switching fundamentals. The course focuses on TCP/IP and its plethora of protocols and services. Topics also include IP addressing, routing, switching, reliable data transfer, and congestion management. Students study many TCP/IP services, including DNS, DHCP, and VPN. Instruction also reviews network security, as well as application layer protocols (such as HTTP, FTP, and email) and client/server network applications. The course provides hands-on examples using Windows, Linux, and Solaris. Students also learn how networks and TCP/IP work and how to work TCP/IP.
Prerequisites
While no experience in data communications is needed, students should have a good background in computing with experience installing and operating Microsoft Windows or Unix (such as Solaris or Linux).
