In Detail

Do you want to build powerful real-world networks? Do you want to pass the CompTIA Network+ Certification (N10-007) exam? This course will help you to reach your goals.

The course starts with an introduction to network models, explaining different types of models available. Next, you will get to grips with the concepts of cabling, topology, and ethernet, and get a detailed understanding of installing a physical network. Moving along, you will work with Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and routing applications and explore advanced networking devices, such as Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) and Virtual Private network (VPN). You will then shift your focus towards Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), remote connectivity, wireless and mobile networking, virtualization, and cloud computing. Next, you will learn to apply all the knowledge that you have learned in the previous section to build a real-world network. Towards the end, you will learn how to monitor, protect, and troubleshoot your network and networking devices.

By the end of this course, you will have gained all the knowledge to pass the CompTIA Network+ Certification (N10-007) exam and will have developed the skills to build a real-world network.

Who this book is for

This course is intended for anyone who is preparing for a network technician position or looking to improve their skills and become CompTIA Network+ certified. This course will also provide you with the skills needed to become a better networking professional.
