Network Architecture

In this section, you’ll learn networking basics, including explaining various network devices and comparing network services and applications. We’ll cover how to install and configure DHCP, DNS, and NAT, as well as WAN technologies, cabling and connectors, network topologies, and network infrastructure implementation. Then we’ll focus on some TCP/IP concepts and routing concepts and protocols. We’ll also explore unified communication technologies and the cloud and virtualization. Finally, we’ll learn how to establish a basic network.

Network Operations

The lessons in Section 2 start with exploring network monitoring tools, and we cover how to analyze metrics and reports from monitoring and tracking. Then we’ll focus on configuration management, network segmentation, and how to apply patches and updates. The last lessons will teach you how to configure switches and wireless LANs. 

Network Security

In this section you’ll learn networking basics that relate to security and risk management. We’ll talk about network vulnerabilities and threats, as well as network hardening techniques and physical security controls. Then you’ll learn how to configure a firewall, and all about network access control models and network forensics.

Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting will be a big part of what you do as a certified network technician. Once you’ve completed this section, you’ll be able to troubleshoot all the most common problems. These lessons start with an overview of network troubleshooting and the tools you have at your disposal. Then we’ll dive into various troubleshooting scenarios: wireless, copper cable issues, fiber cable issues, network concerns, security concerns, and WAN issues.

Industry Standards, Practices, and Network Theory

This section will discuss broader industry concepts that any professional technician needs to know. These lessons will teach you about the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model and various network theories and concepts. You’ll learn how to deploy wireless standards and also ensure wired connectivity. We’ll review network policies and procedures and learn to configure equipment and locations. Finally, you’ll learn about change management and ports and protocols. After this last section is complete, you will truly have a full knowledge of networking and be ready to take your CompTIA™ Network+ Certification exam with confidence.
