IP networking is a layer 3 technology, which is responsible for addressing hosts and routing packets to the remote network.This module will cover the IP network concepts in detail.The network fundaments are explained using examples of hub, router and switch.
IP addresses identify the location of hosts on a network, in the same way a street address identifies a house on a city street. The participant will explore IP addresses in-terms of decimal representation, binary representation, different classes.
IPv4 was not enough to address all the devices and would run out in near future. Therefore, Ipv6 was introduced. Participants will learn about IPV6 and its types in the course.
The routing and routed protocol is also part of the learning. Routed Protocols are used between the routers to direct the user traffic.Routing protocols are used only between the routing tables.
Routing can further be divided into static and dynamic routing. Static Route uses a protocol route that a network administrator enters the router.Dynamic Route Uses a route that a network protocol adjusts automatically for topology or traffic changes. These concepts are covered in the course contents.
Distance vector routing protocol finds the best path to reach a remote network by its distance, that is, number of routers in between.Link state protocol uses the entire topology database, just like a map, to select all the paths from the source to the destination. The course covers distance vector protocols and link layer protocols like RIP, IGRP, EIGRP and OSPF in great details.
Routing metrics are used by the routing algorithms to determine the desirability of a given route to a destination network. Different routing protocols implement different routing metrics. You will learn how these metrics are calculated to choose the best path between source and destination.
Apart from this, you will get to know about L2TP, IP MPLS and basic concepts related to carrier ethernet and converged networks.
