COURSES INCLUDED

CompTIA Network+: OSI Model Layers & Data Encapsulation
The Open Systems Interconnection, or OSI, model is used to describe how computer systems communicate with each other. Frequently used for troubleshooting network problems, the seven layers of the OSI model are concepts with which all networking professionals should be familiar. In this course, you’ll learn about each layer of the OSI model. You’ll outline how human-readable information, such as emails and chat messages, are transferred over a network, as well as the path this information takes along the OSI model. You’ll also examine data encapsulation and decapsulation within the context of the OSI model. You’ll outline characteristics for Ethernet headers, IP headers, and TCP/UDP headers, and learn to differentiate between synchronization (SYN) and acknowledgement (ACK) flags. Lastly, you’ll recognize the primary differences between maximum transmission unit, or MTU, and maximum segment size, or MSS, and how these concepts relate to data being transmitted over a network.

CompTIA Network+: Network Types
Network topologies represent how computers are interconnected to form a network. There are five main network topology types - mesh, star, bus, ring, and hybrid - and each offers unique advantages and disadvantages that technicians need to be aware of. In this course, you'll explore the five topologies in detail and learn when to implement each. You’ll learn about computer networks such as local area networks, metropolitan area networks, and wide area networks. Next, you explore other computer network types including peer-to-peer, client/server, wireless local area network, personal area network, and campus area network. You'll examine Multiprotocol Label Switching and how it can be used as an efficient alternative to traditional Internet Protocol routing. Lastly, you'll learn about common service related entry points, virtual networking concepts, and the common network provider links such as satellite, digital subscriber line, cable, leased line, and metro-optical.

CompTIA Network+: Cables & Connectors
Networking cables and connectors are network hardware components that allow devices to connect and communicate with each other. Different types of network cables exist, each offering different standards, limitations, and speeds. In addition to connecting devices, network cables and connectors are essential for transferring data and information between computers, routers, switches, and storage area networks. In this course, you’ll examine common network cabling implementations such as copper and fiber. You'll discover how to differentiate between the different cable types, including twisted pair, coaxial, and twinaxial. You'll also explore the many different connector and transceiver types and learn common cable management responsibilities including working with patch panels and punchdown blocks. Finally, you'll learn how to differentiate between 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX, 1000BASE-T, 10GBASE-T, and 40GBASE-T copper Ethernet standards, as well as the 100BASE-FX, 100BASE-SX, 1000BASE-SX, 1000BASE-LX, 10GBASE-SR, and 10GBASE-LR fiber Ethernet standards. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the N10-008: CompTIA Network+ certification exam.

CompTIA Network+: IP Addressing Schemes and Subnetting
Computers and devices each require a unique identifier, known as an IP address, in order to participate on an IP network. Using a subnet mask, the IP address is divided into a network portion and a host portion. This practice is called subnetting and it allows for an IP network to be logically subdivided or segmented. In this course, you'll learn the fundamentals of public and private IP addresses and how to use Network Address Translation and Port Address Translation to translate addresses. Next, you'll examine the differences between IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, as well as various types of addresses including unicast, multicast, and anycast. You'll learn the basics of base-2 conversions and binary values and examine classes A, B, C, D, and E, which respectively allow you to portion a network into various different sizes. Finally, you’ll learn about supernetting, a more advanced form of subnetting, as well as IPv6 concepts, subinterfaces, and virtual IP addresses.

CompTIA Network+: Well-known Ports & Protocols
In terms of computer networks, protocols are used to provide a required set of rules that enable computers to exchange information. Well-known Internet protocols include Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, User Datagram Protocol/Internet Protocol, File Transfer Protocol, and Hypertext Transfer Protocol. Ports, by comparison, are used to identify a type of network or specific process. Port numbers, ranging from 0 to 65535, are typically divided into three categories - we
