Introduction to Networks

CCNA 1:  Networking Fundamentals is the first of 4 courses leading to the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) designation.  This course introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components and models of the internet and other computer networks.  It uses the OSI and TCP layered models to examine the nature and roles of protocols and services at the applicaton, network, data link and physical layers.  The principles and structures of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum.  Labs use a "model internet" to allow students to analyze real data without affecting production networks.  Packet Tracer (PT) activities help students analyze protocol and network operations and build small networks in a simulated environment.  At the end of the course students build simple LAN topologies by applying basic principles of cabling, performing basic configurations of network devices such as routers and switches, and implementing IP addressing schemes.
