Data Communication and Networking

An Introduction to Data Communication and Data Networks

Data communication has become an integral part of our daily lives. Communication between various computer systems is vital for every business and organization, whether for-profit or nonprofit. Data networks form the foundation of this communication and must meet increasingly stringent requirements, particularly in terms of speed (bandwidth) and availability. A broad foundational knowledge of data communication and data cabling is essential for this.

A Competent Conversation Partner

During the two-day Basic Data Networking course, we are delighted to introduce you to the world of data communication and network cabling. Discover how a data network is structured, which components are used, and which cabling standards, norms, and terminologies apply. What is the structure of a cabling system? What are Multi-Mode (MM) and Single-Mode (SM)? What cable constructions are used for fiber optics and twisted-pair? What is the OSI model? What are routers and switches, and where do these components fit within the network? What do terms like Virtual LAN, Quality of Service (QoS), and Power over Ethernet (PoE) mean? We’re here to explain it all to you so that you can engage in meaningful discussions, ask the right (critical) questions, and contribute to optimal connectivity.

Part of Onboarding for New Employees

The Basic Data Networking course is suitable for both technical and non-technical employees seeking to develop a broad knowledge of data networks. This includes recent graduates, career changers, re-entrants, and other new employees who can take the course as part of their onboarding process.

By the end of the Basic Data Networking course, you will be able to:

  • Identify international standards and norms for data networks.
  • Explain the European regulation for cabling materials (CPR).
  • Identify and recognize the structure and functional elements of a network cabling system.
  • Recognize different types of connectors and cables used in twisted-pair cabling and describe their applications.
