TCP/IP and LAN Technologies
This course has been designed to provide delegates with a basic theoretical knowledge of Internetworking and focuses on the use of the TCP/IP protocol suite. Included in the course is a breakdown of the Internet Protocol version 4 address structure and how a network is logically subdivided through the use of subnetting. There are a number of practical demonstrations during the course to backup the theoretical learning.This course can form part of the prerequisites for further advanced data networking and Internet Protocol courses.
At the end of this class, participants will be able to:
- Understand the basic history of the Internet.
- Understand the terms WAN, LAN, MAN, Internet and Intranet.
- Determine the functions of the Open Systems Interconnect 7 Layer Model.
- Determine the functions of the Internet Protocol 4 Layer Model.
- Differentiate between different standard Network Topologies.
- Understand the basic functions of a Hub, Switch and Router.
- Comprehend the difference between Distance Vector and Link State Routing Protocols.
- Determine the function of TCP/IP Protocols and at what layer of the Protocol stack they operate.
- Determine the Class of a given IP address.
- Perform subnetting of a given network address with the purpose of building an Internetwork.
- Appreciate the differences between IPv4 and IPv6.
None, although a basic understanding of Datacomms and basic PC principles would be beneficial.
