A strong foundation of basic networking concepts is fundamental to a successful career in information technology. Networking technologies underlie all IT activities and a strong comprehension of the hardware and protocols used to create networks is essential to future success. In this course, you will learn how to configure a workstation to connect to a network, analyze network traffic using a protocol analyzer, examine switch and router configurations, perform basic IPv4 addressing and subnetting, and research network security solutions. You will gain an understanding of basic network functions, standards, and protocols, to prepare you to tackle advanced networking skills.

Skills Gained

  • Basics of layered network protocols and compare the two primary reference models: OSI and TCP/IP
  • Inspect a structured cabling system, including the proper use and installation of UTP and fiber optic cables
  • Configure a workstation to connect to a network
  • Ethernet operations and the use of VLANs by examining the configuration and operation of switches on a network
  • Spanning Tree operation as a method of eliminating broadcast storms on a switched network
  • Configure a Wi-Fi router for operation on a SOHO network, including security, SSID, and Wi-Fi channel
  • Various IP addressing considerations, including binary to decimal conversion, dotted decimal notation, classful vs. classless addressing, private vs. public addresses, and the use of network masking
  • Create a subnet for a small network, selecting the correct masks for various situations to accommodate the current number of hosts in each subnet and to also allow for future growth
  • Operation of various TCP/IP protocols on a network, including connectionless and connection-oriented communications using UDP and TCP, translation between private and public addresses using NAT, and support protocols such as ARP, DNS, and DHCP
  • Router configurations to determine the function of various routing protocols, including RIP, IGRP, and OSPF, within and between networks
  • Various WAN technologies, including circuit switched solutions such as leased lines and packet switched solutions such as Carrier Ethernet, and determine the best WAN connectivity solution for a given corporate network
  • Use a protocol analyzer to capture and view network traffic, including e-mail, instant message exchanges, and web transactions
  • Basic network security implementations by testing the impact a router that has been configured as a firewall has on the flow of traffic through a network
  • Research the suitability of popular anti-malware suites for mitigating network security threats
  • Research Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions to support BYOD deployments

Joel Rosenblum is an excellent instructor. Would gladly take more courses he taught. Extremely knowledgeable with the content and real world experience with the tech. Gotcha issues provided by him to look for in tech were very useful. Very friendly and available during and after class time.

Tom Peters was very helpful initially and once voucher was confirmed valid. Tom P required Kyle Banas to approve my voucher that was earned for selling certain quantity of M365 licenses. Request confirmation voucher was valid less than 3 months from notification. Tom P CC'd Kyle B on email to confirm. Kyle to several weeks and MANY email requests without ever responding to request. Tom P eventually approved the voucher.

Content was excellent. Labs and lab environment was excellent.

I am very satisfied with the course and teacher(Bill), and with the given option I will play with labs more after the class is over. Thank you

Lab infraestructure is very suitable and works pretty good help to understand better the concepts exposed during the training.

Instructor was knowledgeable and made the course fun. He knew how to convey the new material to students in simple and understandable manner. Used terminologies and apologies understood by all students in the v.classroom.
