Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
The core concepts and technologies of Windows networking
Networking can be a complex topic, especially for those new to the field of IT. This focused, full-color book takes a unique approach to teaching Windows networking to beginners by stripping down a network to its bare basics, thereby making each topic clear and easy to understand. Focusing on the new Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) program, this book pares down to just the essentials, showing beginners how to gain a solid foundation for understanding networking concepts upon which more advanced topics and technologies can be built.
This straightforward guide begins each chapter by laying out a list of topics to be discussed, followed by a concise discussion of the core networking skills you need to have to gain a strong handle on the subject matter. Chapters conclude with review questions and suggested labs so you can measure your level of understanding of the chapter's content.

It’s used to get TCP/IP traffic from one computer to another computer over a network. All computers on the Internet have unique IP addresses. As long as the IP addresses are valid,
Hazards Another potential problem with cables is the potential hazardous fumes they can release when they catch on fire. The jacket or covering of some cables can be toxic to humans, so only certain types of cable are safe to use in different areas of a building. Most buildings have spaces between the walls, below floors, and above ceilings used to circulate cooled or heated air. These spaces are called plenums. And, since it’s such an open space, it’s easy (and common) to run cables through
