In the phenomena where we all use the Internet, it becomes abstract of how exactly what happens once we feed in queries on our browsers in search of response from google. How is our query traveling to Google computers? What type of hardware is involved in this process? How data packets move from point A to point B. How do they know which way to go? Who takes care of the process of data delivery?
So through this course, we provide a gentle start on our journey of discovering how data networks, which are responsible for the delivery of information across the Internet, work in today’s world. We start by discussing the various transmission media used and show that optical fiber is a much better medium than copper wire or coaxial cable. This is followed by a description …
Grasping the principles of networking infrastructure has proven to an important attribute for any IT professional to work with data communications and troubleshoot networking issues in the business environment.
In this course, we explore the key architectural principles and implementation of computer networks, specifically, protocol layering and service models, IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes, IP addressing resolution techniques, and commonly used network devices, such as NICs, hubs, switches, and routers.
What you’ll learn
- Analyze data communications and networking issues in business environments
- Describe the principles of distributed data processing and the effect of application system design decisions on the supporting telecommunication systems
