This course offers an overview of the primary concepts of TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol). The class begins with a general introduction to networking, which is discussed in terms of both computers and the Internet. Next, the course progresses through TCP/IP protocols, implementation and management. Hands-on labs with hosts, switches, routers, cabling, and network diagnostic network equipment are used extensively in this course. Finally, TCP/IP internetworking security issues and IPv6 migration will be discussed during the class.
The student should have a basic operational knowledge of computers.
