    • Chapter 1Network Fundamentals Networking Fundamentals and Media Services (NMS)
    • Network A system in which a number of computers are linked together to share data and peripherals Resources Hard disks, printers, internet connection, etc
    • Evolution of Networks Local Area Metropolitan Wide Area Connect 2 Sneakernet Network Area Network Network computers (LAN) (MAN) (WAN)• Hand carry thumb • Computers • Computers • Computers drive / disk interconnected interconnected interconnected within a building within several around the world buildings
    • Why network? Share information or data Share hardware or software Sharing information or data Increase security • Documents • Videos & audio files Backup files • Calendar schedule • Social media Share internet connection Play multiplayer games
    • Network security Logging out if you will be away from your workstation for more than 15 minutes Using unusual passwords (containing letters, number and special characters) and changing them regularly Using deceptive filenames for sensitive data Conducting audit trial to track network activities
    • Intranet vs InternetIntranet Network to make information available to employees on the company’s internal networkInternet World-wide network of computers accessible to anyone who knows their Internet Protocol (IP) address - the IP address is a unique set of numbers (such as that defines the computers location.
    • Backup A file server is a computer responsible for the storage and management of data in a central location.
    • Components of LAN Computers Hosts Peripherals (Shared Resources) Network Interface Card (NIC) Networking media –> how the hosts communicate Network traffic control or Network Communication devices
    • Components of LAN
    • Network Interface Card (NIC) A printed circuit board (PCB) that fits into the expansion slot or integrated into the mother board Also called network adapter Adapt the host device to the network medium Unique Media Access Control (MAC) address
    • Networking Media Coaxial cable Fiber Optic cable Free space Copper cable
    • Networking Media Coaxial cable
    • Networking Media Fiber Optical cable
    • Networking Media Copper cable    Pairs with different twist rates to reduce crosstalk RJ45 (Registered Jack )
    • Network traffic control or NetworkCommunication devices Repeater – amplifies the electrical signals and resends the data, single port “in” and single port “out” Hub – may be 4, 8, 12, 16 or 24 ports  Passive: just split the signal for multiple hosts  Active: multi-port repeater, extend a cable length Bridge – filter traffic between two LAN segment using MAC address Switch – multi-port bridge  Difference between Hub and Switch? Router – direct traffic from one network to another (path selection and switching of packets) using IP address
