Course Description

In this course, you will learn the basics of designing a network with the help of a simulator called Cisco Packet Tracer. We will make use of certain components for the proper implementation of the network. I'll be explaining how to include routers, switches, computers, and transmission media, and how to bind them together with the help of protocols to enable successful communication between them.

This course will introduce the students to the basic handling and functioning of Cisco networking components and their simulated behaviour in a real network. At the end of every module, the students will encounter a quiz to brush up on what they have learnt throughout the module. So, see you in class then!
