CompTIA Mobility+ MB0-001: Network Infrastructure

IT support personnel, mobility architects, network and security administrators, and anyone looking to gain technical skills for managing mobile devices


Expected Duration
141 minutes

Networking is a core capability of a modern mobile device. Network considerations are different to traditional desktop PCs, as connectivity is not just to a traditional LAN, but must be accommodated from anywhere and over multiple network types. Additionally, wireless access to the LAN must be accommodated, along with attendant security considerations. This course covers networking from a mobile device perspective. It includes topologies and infrastructures, security, and integrating wired, and wireless networks. It also covers disaster recovery, and backup, and the use of high availability, and replicated network sites for disaster recovery. This course is one of a series of courses that cover the objectives for CompTIA Mobility+ (MB0-001).
