Network Fundamentals Part 1: Introduction to Networking

Interested in learning about networking? Let Network Direction help you get started.

This video is for people that are first starting out in networking. All you need to bring is interest and enthusiasm.

My goal of the network Fundamental Series is to help anyone wanting to get into the IT field learn more about Networking.

We will introduce you to the terminology used in the field and help you understand what it means. For instance, have you heard of protocols? We’re going to see what these are, and use the #Ethernet protocol as an example.

In Part 1 we’ll also look at what a network actually is, and continue by seeing how devices are connected. Have you ever connected a device over Wi-Fi or plugged in Network Cables to a computer? Delve behind the scenes and find out how this works.

For further study, I reccommend (affiliate):

Stay tuned for part 2 where we’ll go deeper into cabling, and learn the basics of addressing.

Each section includes a quiz to get you thinking. The answers to the quizzes in this video are found at:

    The fact that you require people to click your link to view the answers is extremely negative. I probably would have subbed, but wont for that reason.

    I clicked on this video thinking it would be about networking with people (like business networking). It took me some time to figure out that this was not the topic: I thought you were making some kind of analogy with computers 🤣

  13. Network is a system of 2 or more devices that are connected to receive or send data? Just a guess hehe

    Great vid for me since I'm a software developer who just wants to know a bit more about networking but I don't want to go too deep since my speciality is software. But most of the time I have absolutely no idea what's going on with networking so I just wanted to understand it better. Thanks.

  15. Br3in Boy

    W końcu ktoś podszedł do tego łopatologicznie. Dzięki 🙂
