Overview Overview

The Data Communications Course presents the basic theory of operation os data communications networks, starting from the OSI-RM, LANs, WANs, TCP/IP and basic network security and network applications. The course provides the student with general knowledge of the architecture, hardware components, software configuration, and structure of data communications networks.
