Our CompTIA Network+ N10-007 courseware covers the concepts and skills needed to plan, install, maintain, and troubleshoot modern networks in a vendor-neutral format. This includes physical network components and technologies, logical structures, common protocols, and network security. This course maps to the CompTIA Network+ N10-007 certification exam. Exam objective coverage is marked throughout the course, and there is an extensive glossary appendix.
In this course, you will describe the major networking technologies and systems of modern networks, and be able to configure, manage, and troubleshoot modern networks.
Identify basic network theory concepts and major network communications methods.
- Describe bounded network media.
- Identify unbounded network media.
- Identify the major types of network implementations.
- Identify TCP/IP addressing and data delivery methods.
- Implement routing technologies.
- Identify the major services deployed on TCP/IP networks.
- Identify the infrastructure of a WAN implementation.
- Identify the components used in cloud computing and virtualization.
