Have you ever wondered how you are able to open a web page from a server that is located in another country or how you are able to send documents and videos to the intended recipient without it going to the wrong device? In this course, you will be introduced to the fundamentals concepts of computer networking. More importantly, by the end of this course, you will understand how data travels in your home network.
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
1. Explain how data networks work.
2. Define basic data networking terms.
3. Explain what is needed for devices to have network connectivity or Internet access.
4. Use the Cisco Packet Tracer simulation and modeling tool to build and test a small data network.
5. Identify the devices and component on your home network.
6. Build a simple peer-to-peer network.
Who is this class for: This class is designed for beginners in computing that want to understand the basics of how data is sent and received in a network and how small computer networks are created. People who may be in non-networking professions that would like to understand how their home or small business network works will enjoy this course. Previous networking knowledge is not required. This course is designed to provide an introduction to the basics of networking and will cover only a very small portion of the necessary knowledge and skills needed to achieve an entry-level Cisco networking certification. Access to a Windows 10 machine and a simulation tool called Cisco Packet Tracer is required to get the full benefit of the course.
