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.
In this Study Group; multimode vs. singlemode, OSI layers, Class D and E addresses, firewalls and DMZs, NAT, and exam structure.
Fiber technologies and connectors have changed through the years. In this video, you’ll learn about the different fiber connectors and how they are used.
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.
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.
It’s often difficult to troubleshooting fiber connections and the fiber modules in a switch or router. In this video, you’ll learn about the symptoms associated with fiber issues and ways that you can troubleshoot bad fiber modules.
There’s more to networking than just Ethernet! In this video, you’ll learn about DSL, cable, satellite, fiber, dial-up, Bluetooth, and cellular networks. << Previous Video: Network Cabling and ConnectorsNext: Wireless Networking >>
If your network isn’t wireless, then you’re using some kind of copper cable or optical fiber. In this video module, you’ll learn about twisted pair cabling, coaxial cable, plenum cable, and optical fiber.
The quality of your copper and fiber infrastructure affects everything that traverses your network. In this module, you’ll learn the importance of troubleshooting physical issues like crosstalk, attenuation, shorts, opens, and impedance mismatches.
