CompTIA Network+ N10-006: Network Architecture Part 2

Network administrators, network technicians, network installers, helpdesk technicians, IT cable installers and any other professional working with computer networks

Prerequisite
None

Expected Duration
170 minutes

Description
With all the things that need to function correctly and together in networks, there are an equal number of things that can go wrong. In this course, you’ll learn about more advanced network architecture concepts including network infrastructure implementation, addressing schemas, routing, unified communications, and cloud computing and virtualization. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for certification exam CompTIA Network+ N10-006.

Objective

Network Infrastructure Implementations

  • start the course
  • differentiate between local area networks, metropolitan area networks, and wide area networks
  • describe wireless LANs, their use, and topology
  • describe common personal area network technologies
  • describe the networking requirements for industrial control systems, such as SCADA
  • describe the concept of medianets and the enabling technologies

Addressing Schemas

  • construct an IPv4 address and describe the structure and usage
  • create logical subnets from an IPv4 address
  • construct an IPv6 address, describe the structure and usage, and describe technologies to transition from IPv4 to IPv6
  • describe the use of private IP addresses in IPv4 and their use in NAT systems
  • describe how and where media access control (MAC) addresses are used in network interface hardware
  • describe the main address scopes and how and where they are used

Routing

  • describe the basic concepts of routing in a layer 3 network
  • describe dynamic routing and the characteristics of routing protocols used
  • describe an autonomous system (AS) and contrast interior gateway protocols (IGP) and exterior gateway protocols (EGP)
  • describe high availability technologies in use in routers
  • describe the metrics used by routers to make routing decisions

Unified Communications

  • describe VoIP and video network technologies
  • describe real-time network communication services and the supporting concepts and technologies
  • describe how QoS measures are implemented and their effect on network traffic
  • describe the function of network devices and servers used to enable unified communications

Cloud Computing and Virtualization

  • describe the function of virtualized network devices, the technologies used, and the differences with their non-virtual counterparts
  • describe common storage networking technologies and protocols, such as FC SAN, NAS, and iSCSI
  • describe the common service models used in cloud computing
  • describe the common cloud deployment models

Basic Network Implementation

  • describe the common hardware requirements encountered when implementing networks
  • describe the common compatibility requirements encountered when implementing networks
  • describe the common environmental requirements encountered when implementing networks
  • describe the common security requirements encountered when implementing networks

Practice: Advanced Concepts of CompTIA Network+

  • understand advanced network architecture concepts including network implementation, addressing schemas, routing, unified communications, and cloud computing and virtualization
