Networking devices are instrumental to the delivery of data over a network. In this course, you'll learn about comparing and contrasting various networking devices to determine when and where to use them on a network. You'll also explore common networking devices such as hubs, switches, and routers in addition to network appliances used for more specialized tasks such as the Intrusion prevention system, intrusion detection system, proxy servers, and supervisory control and data acquisition systems. You'll also examine different routing technologies, including dynamic routing concepts and protocols. And you'll explore how to recognize the key differences between the Routing Information Protocol and Open Shortest Path First routing protocols, and recognize how to differentiate between link state, distance vector, and hybrid routing protocols. Lastly, you'll learn about bandwidth management concepts including traffic shaping and quality of service. This course is one of a collection of courses that prepares learners for the N10-008: CompTIA Network+ certification exam
