FND101: Fundamentals of Network Design
Network users generally do not think in terms of the complexity of the underlying network. They think of the network as a means of accessing the applications they need, when they need them. For ICT professionals, however, it is critical to know how a network is built and how to meet the end users’ needs.
In this course, you will learn how a network’s design can affect accessibility and reliability for the end user. In addition, you will learn about network requirements in a data center as well as the design considerations for a wireless network.
This is the fourth course in the Introduction to ICT Series. BICSI recommends that students complete this course, along with the other courses in the series, before they take the Introduction to ICT exam.
