Description

Different sized networks require different types and sizes of networking hardware. Your home network has only a few connected devices, and usually only one or two physical network devices. In this course, Introduction to Enterprise Network Infrastructure, we will use the concepts of a home network as a starting point to describe how big businesses deliver data network connections to thousands of devices. First, you will learn about the variety of network hardware options you have at your disposal to meet your specific needs. Next, you will learn about the different cabling types and how fiber optics are categorized for data network use. Finally, you will learn about the different types of 802.11 wireless networks and where they are used. By the end of this course, you will be able to identify the most important networking hardware and explain its purpose in the data network.
