This foundational Cisco training prepares learners to think within the OSI model and layers, recognize well-known ports, and understand different network and device protocols.
Most people close to the IT world are familiar with the OSI model. Many know what a port is and recognize many of the well-known ports. And plenty of IT professionals can recognize a protocol or two.
Once you're done with this OSI Layers, Ports, and Protocols training, you'll know how to think with the OSI model and layers, recognize well-known ports, and understand different network and device protocols.
For anyone who manages network training, this training can be used to onboard new network administrators.
OSI Layers, Ports, and Protocols: What You Need to Know
This OSI Layers, Ports, and Protocols training has videos that cover network basics including:
- Understanding abstraction and the OSI model
- The seven layers of the OSI model
- The interaction of ports with layer 3 and 4
- Correlating different layers with protocols, and understanding their interactions
Who Should Take OSI Layers, Ports, and Protocols Training?
This OSI Layers, Ports, and Protocols training is considered foundational-level training, which means it was designed for network administrators with 1 to 3 years of experience — or no experience at all. This OSI Layers, Ports, and Protocols course is valuable for new or aspiring IT professionals, experienced network administrators looking to validate foundational skills, and non-technical professionals.
Network basics user training. If you don't work with networks or computers, there might not be any better example of how esoteric the IT community can be than when talking about the OSI model, ports or protocols. For people who don't work with computers, it can be challenging to think in digital terms. This training will help you to understand why digital networks and devices rely on abstraction, what the different layers of network interaction are, and what "languages" or protocols they speak to one another, and what ports they speak to each other on to do so.
New or aspiring IT professionals. If you're a brand new network administrator and you're struggling with the OSI model, ports or protocols, this training can make sure you have a firm grasp on the topic before you move on with your career. There aren't many topics that are more fundamental to a good career in networking than layers, ports and protocols, so set yourself up for success by ensuring you have a total understanding of these strange and abstract concepts with this training.
