Topics include OSI 7-layer architectures, cabling, Ethernet, routing, TCP / IP protocols, IP addressing, routing protocols, WANs, network troubleshooting, and access control lists.
This course will help the students learn how to design and implement computer networks, and their protocols, services, and applications.

Most of the topics will be connected to the Internet, i.e., how the Internet works.
