Looking to learn basic networking skills? CompTIA's vendor-neutral Network+ is the best bet for beginners or those looking to refresh already existing knowledge. This path follows the certification's objectives in order to help you get ready for the exam. We highly suggest that you pair hands-on learning with our training. This curriculum is CompTIA approved quality content and counts towards continuing educational units (CEU).... Read moreRead less
This course covers every objective in CompTIA Network+ (N10-006) domain 1.0, Network Architecture. The student learns the basic building blocks of Ethernet networks and emerges with an excellent, well-rounded understanding of computer networking fundamentals.
Table of contents
Introducing Network Devices
Understanding Network Services and Applications
Configuring Network Services and Applications
Understanding WAN Technologies
Installing and Terminating Network Cables and Connectors
Differentiating Between Common Network Topologies
Differentiating Between Common Network Infrastructures
This course is the third in a Learning Path of six that covers the CompTIA Network+ certification exam. Network operations are literally the infrastructure that makes the Internet, or any network function. This infrastructure can come in the form of hardware, like PCs, tablets, and mobile phones, as well as switches, routers, and wireless access points, or servers and data centers. In addition to this hardware, there are also protocols and services used to allow users to retrieve information. This course will walk the viewer through the basic concepts of network operations, then examine Ethernet, both wired, and wireless, including VLANs, trunking, and routing. The course will wrap up with one of the most critical parts of network operations: network monitoring.
This course covers every objective in CompTIA Network+ (N10-006) domain 3.0, Network Security. The student learns the basics of information security and picks up industry best practices that he or she can apply immediately on the job.
In this course, we will dive into using standard utilities to troubleshoot problems at all layers of the OSI model. We will walk through some of the potential issues with the physical layer (copper and fiber optics,) data link layer (Ethernet and wireless,) network layer (IP addressing and routing,) transport layer (port numbers and services,) and the application layer (protocols like HTTP and DNS.) I will also provide some tips on how to approach problem solving with the real world experience from my networking career.
