Computer Network Fundamentals
The Network Computing fundamentals course is designed to give those embarking on a career in the IT industry a basic understanding of the concept of networking. This course address Local Area Networks (LAN), network definition using OSI model, wired and wireless networks, Internet Protocol (IP), TCP/IP in command line, network services, wide area networks (WAN) and much more. You’ll gain a rudimentary knowledge of how to build Local Area Networks and Wide Area Networks and how routers & switches functions. What’s more, your learning will be helped through the use of basic and advance TCP/IP commands You will have good understanding of internet protocol, review IPv4 and IPv6 categories.
