Computer Networking provides a hands-on introduction to working with peer-to-peer, client/server, and cloud networks. The course begins with a brief history of networks. It then guides learners through all phases of implementing and troubleshooting standard TCP/IP Ethernet networks using network hardware connected with CAT5/6 cable. It covers network components, cables, and connectors. Learners go through the OSI model, protocols, and topologies and the process of implementing and troubleshooting a LAN and discussing access issues for WANs. Learners get hands-on practice with cloud computing and find out how cloud computing is different from working on a local server network. Finally, they get a chance to discover what types of network-related careers exist today.
