Introduction to Networking for Cisco CCNA
This is the first in a series of courses designed to prepare you for the Cisco Certified Network Associate Exam. This course will introduce the basic components needed to understand data networks, including networking models and network addressing.
What you'll learn
In this course, Introduction to Networking for Cisco CCNA, you will examine how basic human communication, like talking in person or on the phone, contains the same fundamental concepts used in moving data across a network. First, you will learn how to examine communication, and determine how to dissect it into components so it can be individually categorized and described. Next, you will learn how to break down communication into components, which will be of great benefit when understanding data networking, as there are many simple protocols which interact in complex ways. To accomplish this you will learn the TCP/IP and OSI models of networking, encapsulation, addressing, as well as what is called "chunks of information" at different points in the communication process. Finally you'll learn about the history and the birth of high speed data communications. By the end of this course, you'll know the OSI Model, TCP/IP Model, and you'll have an understanding of what encapsulation is as it relates to data networking.

CCNA (Certificied Cisco Network Associate) is a certification received by Cisco for people who complete the CCNA exam and pass. It is very often requested by IT (Information Technology) firms for their open networking roles inside IT.
This course is for anyone who wants to learn about the Cisco CCNA certification. It's the first of a series of courses preparing you to take the CCNA Exam.
This is a beginner course therefore no prerequisites are required. Having a good understanding of Information Technology is always a plus but not required.
In this course you will learn how to examine communication, and determine how to dissect it into components to be individually categorized. You will also learn how to break down communication into components, which will be of great benefit in understanding networking, as there are many protocols.
