This course helps learners explore the common network and Internet connection types available to connect devices and businesses. First, you will take a look at the basic characteristics of a local area network, or LAN, a network of computers and other components such as printers located relatively closely together. Then explore the wide area network (WAN), effectively the complete opposite of the LAN. Learn about the personal area network, PAN, which refers to an interconnection of personal devices all within the range of an individual. Examine the features of the Metropolitan Area Network, MAN, larger than the LAN but not as large as the WAN. Next, the Wireless Mesh Network and the high-speed Internet service known as Cable Internet. Further tutorials look at the digital subscriber line or DSL Internet service; the benefits of using Fiber Optic connections; dial-up and satellite Internet access, and the Integrated Services Digital Network, or ISDN. You will learn about the Line-of-Sight, or LOS Internet service and look at Cellular Networks. Close out with an exercise on configuring Internet connections. This course can be used to help prepare for the 220-1001: CompTIA A+ certification exam
