Build and Maintain Networks

Build and
Maintain Networks

Video Training

Get a broad understanding of how networks operate and what’s required to build them and maintain them, including knowledge of specific tools used to build various topologies. Network designer Bruce Hartpence will guide you through the two steps of this Learning Path, starting with basic techniques for building networks and then moving on to advanced principles. You’ll get a solid foundation in networking and be well prepared for basic networking certifications such as CCNA, CCNP, and CWNA.

Below are the video training courses included in this Learning Path.


Network Engineering Fundamentals

Presented by Bruce Hartpence 9 hours 32 minutes

Need a basic primer on networks? In this hands-on guide to core principles, instructor Bruce Hartpence presents an introduction to networking for those who are just getting started or need a refresher. You’ll come away with a broad understanding of how networks operate and what’s required to build them, along with knowledge of how to use specific tools to build various topologies. You’ll also cover network standards and vendors, such as ITU-T, IEEE, IETF, Cisco, Juniper, and Avaya, as well as various network components including the Network Interface Card (NIC), access points, routers and switches. By the time you’ve finished, you’ll be able to build and maintain your own networks–and you’ll be ready to progress to advanced techniques.


Advanced Network Engineering

Presented by Bruce Hartpence 11 hours

It’s time to push your networking knowledge beyond the configuration of small networks. This course will give you a deeper understanding of switching, routing, management and virtual networking. You’ll concentrate on the concepts, equipment, and protocols used in the Layer 2 (data link), Layer 3 (network), and Layer 4 (transport) components of the OSI networking framework. Then you’ll pick up advanced techniques for managing and troubleshooting the infrastructure of wired and wireless networks; gain a greater understanding of the physics of wireless signals and the role of the FCC in regulating those signals; explore techniques for safeguarding your networks; and come away with hands-on skills through demonstrations and packet captures.
