In this learning activity you'll explore how VPN is used to create a secure connection between two networks.
In this learning activity you'll identify various types of unshielded twisted pair cables and their networking connectors.
You'll explore the three main services of cloud computing: Software as a service, Platform as a Service, and Infrastructure as a Service.
In this learning activity you'll explore how to reduce electromagnetic interference (EMI) and crosstalk between adjacent wires.
In this learning activity you'll examine the format of an IP address and interpret the octet by converting between decimal and binary numbers.
Learners view the seven segments of an Ethernet frame and the types of information each represents.
Learners view animations showing how hubs and switches work in local area network configurations.
In this learning activity you'll solve three binary subtraction problems using the 2's complement method.
In this learning activity you'll use the Spanning Tree Protocol to correctly set up a loop-free Ethernet local area network.
In this activity you will learn the benefits of SSH, Secure shell, versus plain FTP.
