6 Hours of Video Instruction
Learn essential computing networking in 6 hours.
Network Fundamentals LiveLessons teaches you everything you need to get started with computer networking in 6 hours. Taught by best-selling author Kevin Wallace, this course introduces you to core networking essentials so you can get started in your career as a network engineer.
Networking Fundamentals LiveLessons begins with an explanation of protocol reference models so you can fully understand the OSI model. You will then dive into an explanation of network devices and theory including broadcast and collision domains, wireless access points and fiewalls followed by a walkthrough of the many network topologies from full and partial mesh, ring, bus, LAN, WAN, PAN and more. After that the author will clearly explain network services, WAN technologies and network cables and connectors. We will end with a discussion of network design.
