TECU 0097: Data Communications
The Data Communications course provides a survey of the fundamentals of data communications and networks.
The course looks at important aspects of data communications, data networks, and the Internet along with key facets of protocol architectures, TCP/IP, and Internet-Based applications. The concepts and terminology centered on data transmission, transmission media, signaling encoding techniques, and error detection/correction are also covered.
The course will explore binary numbering systems and IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes. Switching and routing techniques are presented as well as how networks are segmented for security and efficiency purposes. The course wraps-up with a look at the value of data link control protocols and multiplexing in data communications and networks today.
