Title: Fundamentals of Networking Course Introduction

Fundamentals of NetworkingCourse Introduction
Objective for this lecture
  • Introduce ourselves
  • to the course
  • To the e-learning technology
  • The resources available to you
  • The course level and Detail
  • Covered in detail CH 0 on-line curriculum
  • Introduce you to my Site
  • Introduce you to Packet Tracer
  • Identify what is expect of me as an instructor-
    (What do you require)
  • Identify what is expected of you as a student

Course Description
  • Concepts, Terminology, OSI Model, IP Addressing,
    Subnetting, Ethernet, LANs, Protocols, Packets,
    Frames, Data Communications
  • It introduces networking standards, concepts,
    topology, media and terminology including LANs,
    WANs, the OSI model, cabling, IP addressing,
    subnetting, network hardware and various
  • This course also provides additional information
    on networking theory and protocols beyond that of
    the basic Cisco Networking Academy Semester 1
    course, leading to a more detailed understanding
    of networking.

Introduction Cont.
  • I Rely Greatly On
  • Routing Protocols and Concepts by Rick Graziani
    and Allan Johnson (Cisco Press) Cisco on line
    Course Material
  • I will use the above material and the
    supplemental material form the above without
    referencing the same
  • You may use this Material but please do not
    distribute the same
  • The material is probably the property of Cisco or
    the above references

Course Information
  • Introduction to networking protocols.
  • Training is for a job HOW
  • Education is for a career " WHY
  • Those who know HOW will always have a job
  • Those who know WHY will always be their Bosses
  • The focus should be on Whys education and to
    help the you develop a real understanding of
    networking, not merely memorizing facts and
  • Focus on
  • Protocols
  • Algorithms
  • Processes

What about Certifications?
  • Degrees
  • Certifications
  • Courses
  • Experience
  • For those students interested in certifications,
    our goal is not only to help you obtain your
    CCNA, CCNP and other certifications, but to help
    you develop the knowledge and skills to live up
    to that certification title.
  • We want to help develop networking professionals,
    CCNAs, CCNPs, etc., not just people who can pass
    the exams.

CCNA CCNP CCIE Levels (Very General)
CCIE PHD in networking --? ??? Well not really
but you get the point
Discovery High School/Tech School
Exploration College/University
The CCNA Exploration Routing Course
  • CCNA and CCNP went through major revisions
  • CCNA
  • Separate courses for Basic Education - Discovery
  • Advanced Education - Exploration
  • Updating all curriculum including text and labs
  • CCNP
  • Still four courses
  • CCNP is undergoing another review apart from the
    changes below
  • Change 25
  • CCNP 1 Advanced Routing (BSCI)
  • CCNP 3 Multilayer Switched Networks (BCMSN)
  • New Courses (Replacements)
  • CCNP 2 Implementing Secure Cisco WANs (ISCW)
  • CCNP 4 Optimizing Network Technologies (ONT)

CCNA Curriculum
  • Exploration Advanced Education
  • Discovery Introductory Level
  • Refer to my Site for Details More on this later

What about Cisco Systems?
  • Question Does this and some of the other
    courses focus only on Cisco Systems networking?
    Does it apply to using non-Cisco equipment?
  • Answer All of the information and more than 95
    of the courses that use Cisco equipment applies
    to general networking knowledge.
  • Cisco, Nortel, Lucent, Alcatel, Foundry, Juniper,
    and others, all apply industry standards
    protocols from IETF, IEEE, and others.
  • Typing the commands on the equipment is very
    easy. Understanding what is happening how to
    design, implement, and troubleshoot networks is
    the difficult part.

Default GW or Local Host Algorithm
Introduction to Routing Protocols
IP Addressing and Subnetting
Ethernet Switch Flood or Filter Algorithm
IP Protocol
Ethernet Protocol
TCP and UDP Protocols
ARP Protocol and ARP Cache Process
Learning Bridge Algorithm and Table Operations
Course Information
Some of the fundamental networking topics covered
  • Ethernet frames
  • MAC addresses
  • Layer 2 communications
  • IP Addressing and Subnetting
  • Classful and Classless addressing
  • Introduction to Routers and Routing Protocols
  • ARP
  • ICMP
  • DHCP and DNS
  • TCP and UDP
  • Network Topologies
  • Transmission media
  • Coax, twisted pair, fiber
  • Modulation
  • NICs
  • Hubs and Repeaters,
  • Switches and Bridges
  • ISO and the OSI Model
  • Cabling, UTP
  • Collisions domains
  • Broadcast domains
  • Binary and Hexadecimal number systems

This will not be the last time you learn about
these topics in your networking education and
Understanding not Memorizing
  • Example Duplex mismatches on a switch
  • Memorization Two connected switches must be
    configured with the same duplex setting.
  • Understanding Understand the difference between
    full-duplex and half-duplex, along with Ethernet
    operations and slot time, TCP retransmission, and
  • Understand why this is happening and why the
    switches duplex settings must match.
  • (I do not like auto settings you can challenge me
    on this or anything else PLEASE)

Self Evaluation
  • What should I already know? I dont know any of
  • Great, you are in the right class, but you should
    already have basic computer literacy knowledge
    and skills.
  • Hardware, software, CPU, RAM, ROM, disk drives,
    interface cards, bits, bytes, software
  • WWW, email, word processing, windows, file
  • I think I know most, if not all of this
    fundamental networking information.
  • See me off-line and we can discuss options.

Approach Will Adjust To The Class
  • Repetition
  • Documentation (PowerPoints, Reader, Books,
  • Tools
  • Ethereal Protocol Analyzer
  • Packet Tracer
  • Dont expect you to know something I dont cover
    in class.
  • Do expect you to be able to extend your knowledge
    on your own.
  • Encourage courteous participation but will not
    force it.
  • No surprise tests.
  • Suggestions Welcomed

My BackGround Your BackGround
  • Computer Science/Networking Instructor, McGill,
    JAC, Dawson, ,etc
  • All CCNA and CCNP courses, Data Communications,
    Programming, Operating systems, Security etc..
  • Previous Work Experience
  • Bell Canada
  • Consulting for a Number of Smaller Companies

Herding Cats
  • In some ways, the hardest networking course you
    will ever take.
  • Not because it is difficult, but because
  • A lot of new concepts
  • These concepts become more clear in later
    courses, after you have seen them multiple times.
  • Learning networking is like trying to herd cats.
    No one great place to start.
  • The material this semester will make much more
    sense in later semesters. The more you learn
    about other areas, the more a certain topic makes
  • A lot of, You will learn more about that later.
  • A lot of, Good question, but there is no short
    answer right now.
  • Sometimes, See me off-line and I can explain

Usernames and Passwords
  • Materials on my web site
  • Username cisco
  • Password ccna
  • ON line Exams. ??
  • I recommend that you do end of Module exams
  • I will get back on this issue
