About this Specialization

Welcome to the Cisco Networking Basics Specialization. The five courses included in this specialization are designed for beginners in computing that want to understand the basics of how data is sent and received in a network and how small computer networks are created. People who may be in non-networking professions that want to understand how their home or small business networks actually work will enjoy this course. These courses introduce a variety of concepts, practice activities and simulations that help build the learner’s skills and understanding of computer networking. You will learn how to set up a basic home network, configure devices for connectivity, understand how communication takes place on a network, and what minimal best practices should be implemented to secure the network. Learners will also be introduced to Cisco IOS® software used to manage Cisco routers and switches. Previous networking knowledge is not required.
