COURSE # STO-640
COMPUTER NETWORKS AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS
TECHNOLOGY AND ENGINEERING
Clear and concise overview of modern networking concepts, applications and economics of the evolving technologies.
The power of the computer has been unleashed: its nearly endless uses are bounded only by one's imagination and the technology. In recent years, the technology has been progressing rapidly towards services offering the user the ability to communicate in voice, data and video over Local Area Networks (LANs), Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs), Wide Area Networks (WANs) and Wireless Mobile Networks. This course presents the foundations along with the latest advances in engineering and management of these complex networks.
Applications and benefits:
This course will enhance your understanding of the:
