Ethernet switching enables devices such as computers and printers to communicate seamlessly with each other on the same network.In this course, you'll learn about key switching features. You’ll also explore different port configurations, how Address Resolution Protocol works, and examine key features of the Neighbor Discovery Protocol.You’ll also explore how to install and configure the appropriate wireless technologies and standards and learn how to differentiate between 802.11 standards, and recognize when to implement 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless frequencies. You’ll also learn when to deploy a service set identifier as well as basic service sets, the extended service set, independent basic service set (Ad-hoc) and roaming. Lastly, you’ll learn about wireless encryption standards, cellular technologies, and multiple-input multiple-output, and multi-user MIMO. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the N10-008: CompTIA Network+ certification exam.
