Living in a Network Centric World. Key components of any data network. Opportunities and challenges posed by converged networks. Characteristics of network architectures: fault tolerance, scalability, quality of service and security. Communicating over the Network. The structure of a network, including the devices and media that are necessary for successful communications. The function of protocols in network communications. The advantages of using a layered model to describe network functionality. The role of each layer in two recognized network models: The TCP/IP model and the OSI model. The importance of addressing and naming schemes in network communications. Application Layer Functionality and Protocols. OSI Transport Layer. The role of Transport Layer protocols and services in supporting communications across data networks. OSI Network Layer. The principles used to guide the division or grouping of devices into networks. The hierarchical addressing of devices. The fundamentals of routes, next hop addresses and packet forwarding to a destination network. Addressing the Network - IPv4. The role of Data Link layer protocols in data transmission. The role of Physical layer protocols and services in supporting communication across data networks. The basic characteristics of network media used in Ethernet. Planning and cabling networks. Configuring and testing network.
