Networking Tutorial

Networking Tutorial Or Networking

The network is a connection between at least two computers usually by cable, running software which allows them to communicate with one another.

Users over a network can share computer resources such as hard drives, printers, modems, CD-ROM drives, and processors.

Although most networks are more complicated than this two-computer scenario, all networks are based on the concept of sharing.

There’s actually a great work of technology involved when one computer connects to and communicates with another.

In addition, there are many types of physical connections and related software to consider.

In the following sections, we discuss some fundamental concepts behind all networks and explain what kinds of network models are appropriate for various business environments.

Networking Models

Networking Models Networking Models  In a network, we work over numbers of machines, adapters etc., that are manufactured by different- different vendors. That’s why we need some standards. Standards organization such as the International Standards Organization (ISO) the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc (IEEE) have developed models that have become globally recognized and accepted as standards for designing …

The Internet

The Internet INTERNET Networks have become a fundamental part of today’s information systems. They form the backbone for information sharing in enterprises, governmental and scientific groups. That information can be in several forms. It can be notes and documents, data to be processed by another computer, files sent to colleagues, and even more exotic forms …

Classification by connection method

Classification by connection method Computer networks may be classified according to the technology that is used to connect the individual devices in the network such as HomePNA, Power line communication, Ethernet, or Wireless LAN. HomePNA The Home Phoneline Networking Alliance seeks to establish standards for home networking over regular phone lines within the home – …

Classification by Functional Relationship

Classification by Functional Relationship Computer networks may be classified according to the functional relationships which exist between the elements of the network, for example Active Networking, Client-server and Peer-to-peer (workgroup) architectures. Also, computer networks are used to send data from one to another by the hardrive Active Networking Active networking is a communication paradigm that …

Transmission Techniques

Transmission Techniques   Baseband transmission – To transmit encoded signals over cable, we mainly use two techniques such as Baseband transmission and broadband transmission. Baseband systems use digital signaling over a single frequency. Signals flow in the form of discrete pulses of electricity or light. As the signal propagates along the cable, it gradually decreases in strength and …
