Kurs 13927 - Ethernet Part 1: Ethernet Fundamentals
This is the first course in a three part series that introduces Ethernet. Students will learn both Ethernet's origin and the fundamental concepts needed to understand Ethernet. It also covers Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection, Ethernet Media, encoding method and Ethernet Frame types. All of these topics are building blocks needed to understand the more advanced forms of Ethernet covered in later topics.
