Course Description

In the Network Architecture Course by Michael Redman, students will get a thorough deep dive into network architecture, focusing on core concepts that will help them pass the Network+ exam. You will learn about network models, cabling, and technology.

Network architecture is defined as “the design of a communication network. It is a framework for the specification of a network’s physical components and their functional organization and configuration, its operational principles and procedures, as well as data formats use.”

The skills and knowledge measured by the Network+ examination are derived from an industry-wide job task analysis (JTA) and validated through an industry-wide survey of which over 2,500 responses were received in April 200l. The results of this survey were used in weighing the domains and ensuring that the weighting is representative of the relative importance of the content.

The Network+ certification covering the 2002 objectives, certifies that the successful candidates know the layers of the OSI model, can describe the features and functions of network components and has the skills needed to install, configure, and troubleshoot basic networking hardware peripherals and protocols.

A typical Network+ candidate should have the A+ certification or equivalent knowledge, but A+ certification is not required. In addition to A+ certification level knowledge, candidates are encouraged to have at least nine months of experience in network support or administration.

The 2002 objectives update the Network+ certification exam on new technologies such as wireless networking and gigabit Ethernet. The scope of networking systems are broadened somewhat placing an increased emphasis on Linux/Unix, Windows 9x, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and including AppleTalk as a network protocol.

There is also more of an emphasis on hands-on experience knowledge needed in the areas of network implementation and network support including troubleshooting scenarios.

This examination includes blueprint weighting, test objectives, and example content. Example concepts are included to clarify the test objectives and should not be construed as a comprehensive listing of the content of the examination.
