Fundamentals of LANs

Fundamentals of LANs

  • You want to understand the features and applications of Local Area Networks?
  • You want to know what cable types and characteristics are required for LANs?
  • You need to understand Media Access Control (MAC) and higher layer protocols?
  • You want to understand typical tasks of network elements like switches, routers or firewalls?
  • You want to know how to manage Local Area Networks?
  • You need an understanding of basic security concepts and security elements?

The courseware “Fundamentals of Local Area Networks” covers the topics of our vendor-independent 2-day seminar „Local Area Networks“.

WHY you should read the books:

This seminar is intended for all interested in Local Area Networks (LAN) for office and industrial environments.

I recommend to be familiar with general IT topics and some basics of datacommunication as I cover in seminar and courseware “Basics in Datacommunication”.

The courseware in book format contains the MS Powerpoint slides in notes view and additional explanations.

Use the courseware for your self-paced learning or as handout for your presentations.
