Learn the essential skills needed to set up, configure, support, and troubleshoot your TCP/IP-based network.
TCP/IP is the globally accepted group of protocols at the core of the Internet and organizational intranets. A solid understanding of each of these protocols and how they work will give you the ability to deploy the most effective network for your organization. In this course, you will gain the essential knowledge and skills required to set up, configure, support, and troubleshoot your TCP/IP-based network.
Our expert instructors and extensive hands-on labs will prepare you to face and overcome the challenges of today's complex networks. This course-the longest running of its kind in the industry-also prepares you for more specialized courses in network security, wireless integration, and Voice over IP, as well as for product-specific training such as Cisco, Nortel, and Microsoft.
