Topic outline

  • Course: Introduction to IP Networks

    The 'Introduction to IP Networks' course provides 10 training modules on the most important topics related to IP Networking. Each module is less than 10 minutes duration and they will provide a basic introduction to IP Networking. You can also complete the assessment, which examines your knowledge across these 10 modules.

    We have used a whiteboard approach to delivering this online training for free. This is just one of many ways that we use to deliver e-learning training.

    • Module 1 - What is IP Networking?

      This module explains the concepts of IPv4. It covers topics such as IPv4 addressing, sending data over an IP Network, and IP Services and Applications.

    • Module 2 - Understanding IPv4 Addressing

      This module explains what is IPv4 addressing and how it is used. It explains how binary, decimal, public addressing and privdate addressing is used in an IP Network.

    • Module 3 - Understanding The Subnet Mask

      This module explain what is the subnet mask and why you need to understand how it is used in an IP Network.

    • Module 4 - Understanding Network Elements

      This module explains the purpose of the main network elements (e.g. switches, routers, servers) in an IP Network.

    • Module 5 - Understanding Network Protocol Stacks

      This module explains the why we use network protocol stacks and how they are implemented in the network.

    • Module 6 - IP Services (DNS, DHCP & NAT)

      This modules provides an overview of the most important IP Services in the network today. They are DNS, DHCP and NAT.

    • Module 7 - Understanding Ethernet

      This module introduces the key concepts related to the Ethernet Protocol. It explains layer 2 switching, MAC addressing, and the purpose of the MAC table in an Ethernet Switch.

    • Module 8 - Understanding IP Routing

      This module explains the key concepts related to IP Routing. It introduces the purpose of routing, routing protocol options and network convergence.

    • Module 9 - Understanding the Application Layer

      This module explains the purpose of the Application Layer the TCP/IP Network Protocol Stack. It introduces protocols such as HTTP, FTP, Telnet and explains their purpose.

    • Module 10 - Understanding IPv6

      This module explains what is IPv6 and why we are introducing this protocol into the IP Network.

    • Assessment - IP Networking

      This assessment will test your knowledge onthe 10 modules in the IP Networking track. There are 30 questions and you need 80% score to pass. Good Luck!
