Welcome everyone!

In this course you will be learning the basics of Data Encapsulation so you can understand how our data learns the information it needs to be transmitted across the network, using various ports, protocols, addressing, and standards.

I will present this information to you in three formats so you do not get bored and you are engaged in the material I am presenting to you

  • PowerPoint Slides
  • Whiteboard drawings
  • Virtual Labs

Course Information:

For this course you will need to have a basic understanding of networking fundamentals. If you don't, you can always take my "Cisco Networking Introduction" course available here on Udemy. This course has over 9.5 hours of video lectures and is made up of about 2/3 of labs so you become fluent on configuring Cisco routers and switches.

You will need to download:

  • Cisco Packet Tracer - A virtual network simulator, available for FREE download
  • Wireshark - A packet capture application, available for FREE download
  • Data Encapsulation 101 eBook - Available in Lecture 2 "Overview & Requirements"  for  FREE download

Students can expect:

  • To have a full understanding of Data Encapsulation which is directly related to Cisco's CCNA Certification Exam objectives. 
  • Students will be given a review on some key network fundamental topics directly related to data encapsulation and for this course.
  • Students will have the necessary knowledge needed to discuss data encapsulation with peers, and provide informative information regarding details pertaining to the data being sent across networks. 

In addition, Students will learn:

  • How to use Cisco Packet Tracer to capture virtual lab network traffic
  • The basics of Wireshark so they are familiar with navigating the application, and know how to capture traffic.
  • Students will learn how to capture Switch and Router passwords using Wireshark.

Hello everyone, Im Keith and I have been working in the IT industry for a little over 10 years now, working for both small companies and large fortune 500 companies. Working for a variety of companies in different industries has allowed me to gain a great insight on the important roles and responsibilities in the networking industry. Being in IT is a fun, but at times, challenging career. Technology is always evolving so it is important to stay well educated in many domains so you can grow with the technology and keep a strong, secure, and healthy network. 

I began teaching in 2015 in small classroom environments, for different consulting jobs I had. That has lead me to dive into the world of online education which I only hope grows so I can help educate those who are eager to learn the material to be successful in today's technologically advanced industries.
