CompTIA NET+ Cert, Part 01 of 17: Theory and Communications

with Patrick Loner

In this session we look at the fundamentals of networking to get you introduced to a number of important concepts. We begin with terminology so that you aren’t blindsided by the various acronyms that you are likely to hear in this field. We discuss network models such as peer-to-peer and client/server and the functionality provided by them as well as the typical networks in which you would find them. Finally you will see the topology of the network, both in the physical and logical sense. Next we’ll look at the actual signals and data transmission methods that are used on the network. This information can be very helpful if you find yourself analyzing network devices and technologies to give you a better understanding of their functionality. It can also be helpful when diagnosing network problems.
