Networking Bitesize Bundle (Parts 1 & 2 and Network Infrastructure)

Course Overview

The complete bundle bringing together all of our Local Area Networks and Network Infrastructure bitesize courses. These courses are perfect for those integrators, installers, specifiers and end users looking to find out how these fascinating technologies work, and with an interest in IP addressing in general.

Over twelve modules, we look to develop your knowledge and skills, beginning with a fascinating look at LANS ( Local Area Networks). We move on to the relationship between bit rate and bandwidth, and how cabled networks and broadband supports high data rates, together with their impact on CCTV quality.  We show you the most popular types of UTP cable and their connectors, and explore the range of simple tools and utilities which are available to trace faults, determine end-to-end delay, and pinpoint problems in IP networks.

Virtual local area networks (VLANs)  why they are needed, how they are set up and used, and how Quality of Service over Ethernet became a reality. We explain how the Domain Name Service (or DNS) swaps web and email addresses into the correct IP addresses and also the principles behind providing Quality of Service, with explanations of delay, jitter and loss, presented in an easily digestible and jargon-free manner. Lastly In the courses covering networking we examine the development of the router, from a simple packet switch, to the highly intelligent device we have today and the fundamentals of a routing protocol, queuing & priority and autonomous systems.

With the Network Infrastructure focused bitesize courses we look at IPv4 (still in widespread use today in private networks, including CCTV) and how IPv4 works before moving onto the better known IPv6 as used in public networks such as those provided by ISPs and carriers such as BT, perfect for those with an interest in IP addressing in general. We take a look at how the current 4th and 5th generation mobile networks have evolved, and how faster speeds have been achieved before moving on to Light Fidelity (Li Fi) communication technology (using light to transmit data) Li-Fi – is the latest and possibly the most exciting – and definitely the most interesting – alternative to Wi-Fi and Mobile networks.
