Networking 101

Networking March 8th, 2007

A couple of years ago I hosted a training session for our field IT personnel that had varying degrees of experience in networking.  I set aside a day and put together a presentation I called ‘Networking 101’.  I wanted to get them thinking of the overall corporate wide-area-network instead of just their local piece of the puzzle.  I received a lot of positive feedback within the company on the presentation, so I wondered if anyone else might find it useful.  It’s basically a mini Network+ course that followed the OSI model and added some Windows based network stuff.  Some of it may be out-dated for you (yes, we still had coax segments in our older facilties), so you can use what you find relevant.

Take a look and hopefully you’ll find it useful.

    Keith, I remember this presentation. After reviewing it agian I see there are still items that I missed at the time and other items I learned from this presentation that I use on a regular basis. I can’t wait to see other readers comments and what they might add to a presentation like this.
