Network Interface Layer and Ethernet Operation for Cisco CCNA 200-125/100-105

Since Ethernet is a widely used protocol in data networking, you'll spend most of the course examining Ethernet. You'll also examine physical components required for networking, as well as the layer 2 protocols used in network communication.

Get a better understanding on how Ethernet operates and how to configure a Cisco switch. In this course, Network Interface Layer and Ethernet Operation for Cisco CCNA 200-125/100-105, you'll learn some network interface layer protocols but focus your attention on Ethernet and Ethernet switching. First, you'll learn the details of the types of cabling, fiber optics, and wireless technology used in data link layer protocols to move information. Then, you'll examine a variety of data link layer protocols and where they are used. You'll also look at the long history of Ethernet, and then examine the Ethernet frame header, the Ethernet Switch, and how a layer 2 broadcast message propagates through the network. Lastly, you'll see a detailed demonstration of a switch configuration as well as an examination of the behavior of hubs and switches in the same network, and what the MAC address table looks like on a series of switches connected together. By the end of this course, you'll have an in-depth understanding of Ethernet and how to configure a Cisco switch.

Hi everyone, my name is Ross Bagurdes and welcome to my course “Network Interface Layer and Ethernet Operation I am a Network Engineer with 20 years experience managing enterprise networks and teaching people about them. In this course, we will discuss some Network Interface Layer protocols, but focus our attention on Ethernet and Ethernet Switching Some of the major topics that we will cover include Several Cabling standards, including Cat5 and Cat 6 twisted pair, and single and muti mode fiber optics. 1. What a collision domain is, and how it relates to Ethernet 2. Dissect the contents of a frame header, and examine how we check for integrity 3. Examine the operation of a switch 4. Configure a cisco 2960 switch from scratch By the end of this course you will have an in depth understanding of Ethernet and how to configure a cisco Switch.Before beginning the course you should have completed the previous 3 courses int his series.And by the end of the course you’ll have all the information you need to move onto the rest of the training course for the CCNA/CCENT certifications. I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Ethernet with the Network interface layer and Ethernet operation course, at Pluralsight.
