The Introduction to Networking study guide provides an introductory overview of the fundamental concepts of networking and data communications. This book is designed for those who have basic experience using a computer, and would like a better understanding of how networks move information between computers. This book brings together the acronyms, protocols, and components that are essential to understanding how networks operate. You will learn how signals travel across different types of physical network structures, and how those signals carry useful data from one device to another. As you will see, the same key principles and components form the foundation of all networks, from the smallest peer-to-peer systems to the worldwide Internet. The knowledge gained in this course will serve as a firm foundation for a continued course of study in networking.
