Networking basics is about understanding the components that connect devices to the network. This connection is enabled by Routers and Router configuration. This course provides information on the fundamentals of Communication, Networking and Ethernet Systems. The relationship between OSI and TCP/IP models has been discussed by comparing their functions and features. Advanced topics in Virtual LAN, the underlying protocol technologies, their functions and the different types of protocol have also been dealt with.
This course helps the learner to gain very good knowledge on the basics of networking concepts, enabling them to apply their skills in a real working environment.
