Description

Network Essentials

by Chip Reaves, Harry Brelsford, and Emily Wilson

Network Essentials is designed to give an experienced Level 1 tech a good foundation in networking technologies, both for real world benefits and to pass the newest CompTIA Network Plus certification (Exam N10-006).

For any experienced IT professional who wants to expand their skill set, Network Essentials is a great place to start.  While basic networking is something that most IT pros understand, this course will teach you about areas which may be new for you, including topics such as SCADA, routing protocols, and VLANS. 

With the new N10-006 version of Network+ CompTIA has placed new emphasis on topics with practical benefit such as network troubleshooting, and in this course we'll spend several models looking at troubleshooting tools and techniques to help diagnose any networking situation. 

We'll also explore one of my favorite topics, the OSI reference model.  Understanding the concepts behind the OSI model are absolutely critical to being able to design, support, and troubleshoot any modern network. 

The course runs a total of 7+ hours, divided into 63 lessons of approximately 10 minutes each.

Topics include:

  • Network Devices
  • The OSI Model
  • WAN Technologies
  • Wired Connections & Cable Types
  • Wireless Connections
  • DHCP & DNS
  • IP Addressing Schemas (v4 & v6)
  • Unified Communication Technologies
  • Ports and Protocols
  • Subnetting
  • VLANs and Switch Configuration
  • Network Segmentation
  • Areas of Risk & Attack Vectors
  • Firewalls
  • Troubleshooting
  • Policies and Procedures

Finally like all of our Bigger Brains courses we feature two people on camera - a Teacher, and a Learner.  This lets us make our course and the information we're presenting more interesting and more engaging, with discussions of real-world situations, dialogue, questions and answers, and humor. 

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone looking to take the Network+ Exam N10-006, or who wants to improve their knowledge of advanced computer networks
