This course is the first in a three-part series on Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). In this course, participants will learn about the basic concepts and architecture of TCP/IP. Topics covered will include an overview of TCP/IP, wide area point-to-point protocols, LAN technologies, packet networks, and IP addressing.
