This subject will cover topics from the fundamentals of networking to connecting and configuring Cisco networking devices. Students will learn about important networking fundamentals using the open systems interconnection (OSI) seven layer model concepts, terminology and technologies. They will also learn about connecting and configuring Cisco catalyst switches and routers in a local area network and wide area network situation.
No offerings have been identified for this subject in 2018.
