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.
