Local Area Networks

Description

A local area network (LAN) is a high-speed data network over a small physical area (i.e. an office, a building, or a campus). LANs often connect different computers, printers, servers, and other devices to enable shared access and facilitate exchange between network users. This Saylor foundation course will introduce the student to local area networks, the protocols they use, and the various layers that constitute a network. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes.
