Description

This course is the third in a Learning Path of six that covers the CompTIA Network+ certification exam. Network operations are literally the infrastructure that makes the Internet, or any network function. This infrastructure can come in the form of hardware, like PCs, tablets, and mobile phones, as well as switches, routers, and wireless access points, or servers and data centers. In addition to this hardware, there are also protocols and services used to allow users to retrieve information. This course will walk the viewer through the basic concepts of network operations, then examine Ethernet, both wired, and wireless, including VLANs, trunking, and routing. The course will wrap up with one of the most critical parts of network operations: network monitoring.

Examining Ethernet
Welcome to Pluralsight. I'm Ross Bagurdes. In this series about CompTIA Network+ certification exam, this module we're going to take a look at examining Ethernet, and Ethernet operates at the Data Link layer of the OSI model and the Network Interface layer of the TCP/IP model. This is part of a multi-video series that covers all of the content included on the CompTIA Net+ exam, the N10-006 exam. There are six videos in this series. This is part of one of these six. We have an Introduction to CompTIA Network+. After that we have my good buddy Tim Warner is doing Network Architecture. I'm covering Network Operations here, which part of that is Ethernet. We'll also cover Network Security, Troubleshooting, and Standards, Practices, and Theories. So right now we're on Network Operations, and we're going to take a look at how Ethernet operates.

Examining Wireless Ethernet
Welcome to Pluralsight. I'm Ross Bagurdes, and in this video we're going to look at wireless Ethernet. And wireless Ethernet operates at the Data Link Layer of the OSI model and the Network Interface Layer of the TCP/IP model. Now there are six videos in this series to prepare you for the CompTIA Network+ exam. This is the N10-006 exam. We have the Introduction to CompTIA video. We have Network Architecture, which Tim Warner created. We have Network Operations, which Wireless Ethernet is part of. We have Network Security, Troubleshooting, and then Standards, Practices, and Theories. Now all of these courses are going to help you prep for that exam. Let's dive into Wireless Ethernet here so we can keep moving along. So what I want to do is I want to take a look at the physics of wireless, why can we use wireless to move data? Next we're going to jump in and take a look at Ethernet operation. We're going to take a look at what we need in order to make wireless work. We're going to look at some of the protocols that we've developed for Ethernet and some of their specifications. We're going to look at wireless topologies and how we can manage those topologies. And last, we're going to look at some wireless planning concepts and tools.

Examining Wireless Ethernet Protocols
Welcome to Pluralsight. I'm Ross Bagurdes. In this video we're going to examine Wireless Ethernet Protocols, specifically the IEEE 802. 11 Protocol Suite. 802. 11 operates at the Data Link Layer of the OSI model and the Network Interface Layer of the TCP/IP model. Now there are six videos in this series to prepare you for the CompTIA Network+ exam, this is the N10-006 exam. We have the Introduction to CompTIA video. We have Network Architecture, which Tim Warner created. We have Network Operations, which Wireless Ethernet is part of. We have Network Security, Troubleshooting, and then Standards, Practices, and Theories. Now all of these courses are going to help you prep for that exam. Let's dive into wireless Ethernet here so we can keep moving along. First we're going to look at wireless Ethernet protocols, so we're going to look at the protocols from IEEE and the 802. 11 Suite. We oftentimes hear these are 802. 11 a, b, g, n, and so one, so we'll take a look at some of the details of those protocols. We're also going to look at a wireless access point configuration. One of the things you may need to do at some point is jump on an AP and change the channel or change some of the settings based on the radio type, so we're going to jump on an access point and take a look at how to do that.
