A hands-on training course introducing the concepts of data communications, moving on to covering both LAN and WAN technology. Quizzes are used extensively to ensure material has sunk in and to maximize learning time. Hands-on sessions ensure that by the end of the course delegates have made cables, built LANS and WANS, configured TCP/IP, switches, and routers.
• Use the seven layer model to classify networking buzzwords. • Build and troubleshoot Ethernet, WiFi and Leased line networks. • Evaluate LAN and WAN technologies. • Explain the difference between switches and routers. • Connect networks with routers.
