Architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and computer networks is the foundation of Cisco Networking Fundamentals.
Students learn IP addressing, Ethernet concepts, media, and operations to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes.
This course is the first of four networking courses to prepare students for the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification exam.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Compare and contrast OSI, TCP/IP models, and TCP and UDP protocols
- Describe firewalls, access points, wireless controllers, and network topologies such as star, mesh, and hybrid
- Select the appropriate cabling type based on implementation requirements
- Configure, verify, and troubleshoot IPv4 addressing and subnetting and compare IPv4 address types such as unicast, broadcast, and multicast
- Identify the appropriate IPv6 addressing scheme to satisfy addressing requirements in a LAN/WAN environment
