Product Description

Get to know the fundamental technology and concepts that make networking systems possible, including the software and hardware supporting LANs, WANs, and Wi-Fi networks! The SOS Introduction to Network Systems is a CTE elective for students in grades 9-12 that uses vivid graphics, videos clips, audio files, animation, and learning games to present lively lessons.

This course will introduce students to key network systems concepts, including the OSI reference model and its bottom four layers, each of which is explored in a three-lesson chapter. This six-unit course explains the role of network hardware, lists at least four protocols from the TCP/IP stack, and explains how each contributes to data transmission.

In addition, this elective covers the technical differences between a LAN and a WAN, describes the importance of technical standards in networks, lists all seven layers of the OSI reference model, explains what each of the bottom four layers contributes to a network, and compares and contrasts the Windows Server and Linux operating systems.
