Course description

In this course we’ll start out by talking about SOHO networks. SOHO is an acronym for Small Office Home Office. We’ll cover many of the considerations you must consider when setting up a SOHO network. Next we’ll cover laptops including parts, performance, and other factors to keep in mind. Then we’ll move on to mobile devices, including specific types, configuration and other items of interest. Then we’ll finish off the course with Printers, any network will need to have a print. We’ll cover MFD, Multi Function Device printers, how printers work including laser to dot matrix.
