Overview of Networking

Networking is the practice of connecting computing devices and systems to share resources, exchange information, and communicate with each other. It encompasses both the physical hardware infrastructure and the software protocols that enable data transfer and communication across networks.
At Bluescripts Infotech Institute in Ibadan, the main components of networking involve:
* Types of networks:
– Local Area Network (LAN):A LAN is a network that connects devices within a limited geographical area, such as a home, office, or campus.
– Wide Area Network (WAN): A WAN spans a larger geographical area and connects multiple LANs or other networks.
– Wireless Networks: Wireless networks enable devices to connect and communicate without physical cables.
* Network Components:
– Devices: Network devices include computers, servers, routers, switches, access points, modems, and other hardware components that enable communication and data transfer between devices.
– Infrastructure: Network infrastructure comprises the physical and logical components that facilitate network connectivity, such as cables, routers, switches, and wireless access points.
– Protocols: Network protocols define the rules and conventions for communication between devices on a network.
* Networking Technologies:
– Ethernet: Ethernet is a widely used networking technology for LANs, providing high-speed wired connectivity between devices.
– Wi-Fi: Wi-Fi enables wireless connectivity between devices, allowing users to connect to a network without physical cables.
– TCP/IP: TCP/IP is the foundational protocol suite for the internet and most modern computer networks.
– Virtual Private Networks (VPNs): VPNs create secure, encrypted connections over public networks, allowing users to access private networks or the internet securely from remote locations.
– Cloud Networking: Cloud networking leverages cloud computing infrastructure and services to deliver scalable, flexible, and cost-effective networking solutions, such as cloud-based storage, applications, and networking resources.
