In the Introduction to Wide Area Networks book, students learn the concepts, technologies, components, and protocols used to move voice and data across long distances, and discover important technologies that integrate voice, data, and video communications. Also reviewed are basic concepts of how information is transported over a wide area network (WAN), from the physical layer bits and bytes to the applications that WANs support. This book is intended for individuals who desire a better understanding of the global telecommunications infrastructure and how it supports long-distance voice and data communications. When students complete this course, they will have a solid understanding of the fundamental concepts of WAN operations. Students develop a strong foundation in networking and communications systems and technologies, so that as they further target their studies toward administering specific network operating systems, they will carry with them a clear advantage over their peers.
