It then provides in-depth coverage of the most important concepts in contemporary networking, such as TCP/IP, Ethernet, wireless transmission, and security. After attending this coruse and completing the hands-on exercises, you will be prepared to select the best network design, hardware, and software for your environment. You will also have the skills to build a network from scratch and maintain, upgrade, and troubleshoot an existing network. Finally, you will be well prepared to pass CompTIA’s (the Computing Technology Industry Association’s) Network+ certification exam. This course explains concepts logically and in a clear, approachable style. In addition, concepts are reinforced by real-world examples of networking issues from a professional’s standpoint. Each lesson opens with an On the Job story from a network engineer. These real-world examples, along with Hands-on Projects and Case Projects in each lesson, make this course a practical learning tool.
