Our wide area network technologies use many different media types to operate, and these media types provide advantages and limitations. In this video, you’ll learn how coax, twisted pair cabling, and fiber can be used to network over different speeds and distances.
Different Ethernet standards and media types have differences between the distance a signal will travel and the speed of the signal over the media. In this video, you’ll learn about coax, copper, and fiber media types and the Ethernet distances and speeds supported across the media.
It’s sometimes difficult to find the right copper or fiber connection for your network devices. In this video, you’ll learn the methods for converting different media types.
As network speeds and topologies have evolved, our copper cabling has evolved with them. In this video, you’ll learn about cable categories and which network topologies are supported across different categories.
Your copper network connections may be a combination of many different cable types. In this video, you’ll learn about the characteristics of UTP, STP, and coaxial cabling.
If you are extending your network over an extended range, then you’ll probably use some type of fiber technology as your network media. In this video, you’ll learn more about fiber technologies and the differences between multimode fiber and singlemode fiber.
You’d like to build a Windows XP Media Center to store video and music. What are the minimum requirements of Windows XP Media Center?
You’ve been asked to put together a hardware configuration for a Windows Media Center PC in a corporate media center. What is the maximum number of video tuners that can be used in Windows XP Media Center?
Storage technology has changed dramatically through the years, from floppy disks through solid state drives. In this video, you’ll learn about the technology behind floppy drives, hard drives, solid state technologies, and optical drives. You’ll also learn about removable storage technologies, tape drives, and external storage options.
