Networking Fundamentals


Applying the Concepts of Networking

Well introduce you to the fundamentals of network operation, then provide an opportunity to reinforce what youve learned. Apply the concepts in a lab setting as you perform step-by-step configurations of network equipment. You learn the importance of proper network planning and deployment, how to use tools that make network management easier, as well as how to make your network more secure.

Work It Out in the Lab!

Get the most relevant information on today's newest networking technologies in just two days! Learning fundamentals is one thing, but actual application is another. With this 2-day hands-on class, you can immediately implement what you learn. Fundamentals of switches, routers, hubs and servers are laid out in lab workbooks which guide you through hands-on exercises step-by-step. Well show you how to really setup a network for the most secure, flexible and reliable operation.

IMMEDIATE benefits of attending this course:

  • Learn how Ethernet works and how the Ethernet address is built into every computer on the LAN
  • Discover LAN monitoring tools that show you the traffic on the LAN: what kind and how much
  • See the difference between an Ethernet hub and an Ethernet switch  measure collisions and performance degradation as LAN loading is increased
  • Connect switches to routers and verify that packets are sent successfully and addressing info is correct
  • Understand the subnet mask. Setup and verify IP subnets of different classes and size, and use variable length subnet masks
  • See why ARP protocol is central to operation of IP protocol on a LAN, and discover why ATP is a central concept in so many LAN operations

  • Evaluate the cost/performance benefits of using frame relay in your WAN and obtain a listing of primary frame relay applications
  • Observe a demonstration of how to configure a switched spanning tree in order to make your switch backbone totally redundant and free of single points of failure
  • Learn how DHCP reservations stabilizes your network's addressing structure, easing the burden evolving administration needs
  • Learn to operate multiple DNS servers  protect against loss of critical databases and services
  • Practice setting up multiple wireless LAN access points on separate frequencies to avoid crosstalk and interference as your wireless network grows
