The course will cover computer topologies (both physical and logical), media types, the OSI model, and local area networking. It will cover some legacy material but is primarily about Ethernet, TCP/IP and other current computer networking protocols. Hardware such as switches and routers will be covered and software such as VLAN, VPN, and NAT as well. Some basic troubleshooting, security, and administrative procedures will also be reviewed. The course is meant as an introduction, covering many subjects at a high level in order to assist the broadcaster in passing the Certified Broadcast Networking Technologist exam. There are several quiz questions at the end of each chapter to help the student ensure he/she understands the material.
