A network consists of a larger number of the communication devices like Routers, Repeaters, Hubs and Switches. A router works like a traffic light between the networks. Without routers there would be no Internet.
Today, IP is the main protocol in use on the Internet, as it is a routed protocol. A routing protocol specifies how routers communicate with one another. The routing protocol also specifies how routers in a network share information with each other and report changes. Some of the common routing protocols include IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, IS-IS and BGP.
This course covers some basic topics in networking like routers, hubs, bridges, repeaters, routing concepts and protocols.
After completion of this course, students will get a clear view on Basics of switches, Hubs and Bridges, routing basic concepts, hierarchical routing and about some advanced routing concepts.

Brian has 20 plus years of engineering experience. He thinks in systems and the connections between them as a result of his time as a Naval Weapons Electrical Engineering Officer.
As a design, commissioning and project engineer with Rio Tinto Alcan he oversaw the first application of devicenet in an aluminium smelting environment and assisted with piloting fully automated anode changing.
More recently he has been involved with collecting data from process using the OSISoft historian and using their toolset for analysis. His experience with networking goes back to becoming the accidental sysadmin for a Novell Netware system in the early 1990’s and has been a part of his roles ever since.
He is now ISA99 qualified and currently works for Griffith University as a Technical Lead (IT and Engineering) where he is assisting in collecting and analysing data in support of their sustainability initiatives.
