Cisco Networking Fundamentals
This course introduces students to the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. The principles and structure of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced. Students will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes. Lab work is designed to simulate real-world networking. This course is the first of four networking courses to prepare students for the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification exam.
