Introduction to Networking (Module 1)

By the end of the course, students can build simple local area networks (LANs) that integrate IP addressing schemes, foundational network security, and perform basic configurations for routers and switches.

Reservar Cupo

• Configure switches and end devices to provide access to local and remote network resources.

• Explain how physical and data link layer protocols support the operation of Ethernet in a switched network.

• Configure routers to enable end-to-end connectivity between remote devices.

• Create IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes and verify network connectivity between devices.

• Explain how the upper layers of the OSI model support network applications.

• Use security best practices to configure a small network.

• Troubleshoot connectivity in a small network.
