Description

This course explores fundamentals of business telecommunications including, transmission media, synchronous and asynchronous communication, and packet transmission concepts. Data communications protocols are introduced and local area and wide area network technology is explored. The role of telecommunications in organizations and the global impact of networking are emphasized in case studies throughout the course. Hardware topics and hands-on labs will provide a foundation for network certification.

• Understand the basic networked communications and services 
• Design/construct a network layout 
• Explain how network hardware communicates throughout the network 
• Understand the OSI reference model’s layers and their relationships to both networking hardware and software 
• Understand the different networking protocols and their functions 
• Discuss the differences between centralized and client/server computing 
• How to create a network security plan 
• Describe the basic concepts associated with a wide area network 
• Understand the necessity for networking standards, policies and procedures, and documentation
