TCP / IP Fundamentals

Multi-coloured ethernet cables connected to router

The standards that allow different networks and communications equipment to talk to one another are formalized in digital rules known as communications protocols. The two most important are the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), and the Internet Protocol (IP). They are also mandatory in almost all fields related to Telecom and IT, including Wireless Communications Systems, Satellite Communications, Submarine Cable, Optical Fiber Systems, Data Centers, Big Data, etc.

This course introduces participants to the concepts of TCP/IP and 7-Layer architecture. The protocols associated with each layer will be discussed and participants will be provided with a broad overview of data communication fundamentals. The different networking devices will also be discussed, along with the role of MAC addresses and IP addresses.

At the end of this course, participants will understand how services are provided over the Internet using the TCP/IP protocol suite with due consideration given for security.
