It can be difficult to find the correct data run or server if you don’t have a good documentation strategy. In this video, you’ll learn about labeling cables, systems, circuits, and patch panels.
Short circuits and open circuits can be problematic to identify and resolve. In this video, you’ll learn about opens and shorts and how they cause problems on our networks.
The technologies behind our wide area networks are varied, but there are two major types of WANs that we use today. In this video, you’ll learn about circuit switched networks and packet switched networks and which technologies fit into each of these WAN categories.
Troubleshooting power supplies requires some specialized tools and some common troubleshooting techniques. In this video, you’ll learn about circuit testers, the value of a good multimeter, and how to use these tools to troubleshoot power outlets and power supplies.
In the first video of this two-part series on WAN technologies, we’ll examine the specifics of circuit switched WAN links. You’ll learn about POTS, T1s, and ISDN circuit switched technologies, and we’ll show you the speed differences, transmission media, and distance limitations.
