This study guide covers the underlying technology principles of internetworking, and how specialized devices can work together to create a nearly endless variety of internetworking solutions. From this course, you will be able to identify and describe the components of repeaters, hubs, bridges, switches, routers, and gateways. You will also learn about network management, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), routing methodologies, and routing protocols.
This study guide has been updated to reflect all the changes that have taken place with switches and routers in order to support advancing technology. We discuss the use of private networks, such as PNNI and VLANs, and we demonstrate the use of network address translation (NAT) as a method of limiting the number of IP addresses needed for systems to address the Internet. Another update is information on SNMP community strings as a new identifier used among integrated network components to allow for universal communication.
