Data Networking and the Internet

LIDO TELECOMMUNICATIONS ESSENTIALS®

Part 2 begins with an explanation of data communications fundamentals - establishing a framework for understanding data networking and its applications. Data network alternatives for the local and wide area are explained, demystifying protocols and architectures and their relationship to the OSI reference model. LANs (local area networks) and LAN internetworking are summarized, providing a high level overview of enterprise infrastructures today. WAN (wide area networking) alternatives are reviewed, providing descriptions of their applications, associated network elements, and general tradeoffs. Part 2 also provides an examination of the Internet and IP infrastructures, including Internet basics, Internet addressing and address resolution, the organization of the Internet, IP QoS and a look at what’s next on the Internet.
