Objectives 1. Differentiate between LANs, MANs, and WANs. 2. List and describe the components that make up a network. 3. Given a network problem scenario, select an appropriate course of action based on a general troubleshooting strategy. 4. Describe the importance and use of documentation. 5. Identify the purpose, features, and functions of Hubs, Switches, Bridges, Routers, Gateways, and NICs. 6. Describe the OSI Model and how it relates to networks. 7. Recognize the different logical or physical network topologies given a diagram. 8. Specify the main features of the 802.2 LLC and MAC Layers. 9. Given an example, identify a MAC address. 10. Identify the seven layers of the OSI model. 11. Identify which layers of the OSI model different network devices operate. 12. Explain the need for network standardization. 13. Define a Virtual Circuit. 14. Define sessions, explaining how they relate to networks. 15. List and define the 802 Project Standards. 16. Define signaling, modulation, and encoding. 17. Define bandwidth and compare broadband with baseband. 18. List and describe the different connection services.
