CompTIA Network+ 2012: Network Installation and Configuration Part 1

This course is included in our On-demand training solution.


Most organizations, regardless of size, will need a network in order for its users and resources to interconnect. A LAN is the simplest and most common network type used to provide communication over a small area. Understanding how to install LANs and the technologies that make them functional will enable you to choose and implement the right type of network for your organization. This course describes how to install and configure common network devices, such as routers and switches, and how to work with wireless technologies in order to create a functional wireless network. This course prepares the learner for the CompTIA Network+ 2012 certification exam N10-005. Network+ is sometimes referred to as N+ or Net+.
