With the vast majority of subsystems now having the ability to be converged over an IP network, this is arguably the most important topic for smart home technicians.

CEDIA’s Residential Networking course will provide attendees with the foundation for understanding IP (the Internet Protocol). Starting from the ground up, the course will increase attendees IP networking knowledge, and clarify the common network protocols such as TCP, UDP, IP, DHCP, DNS, and NAT. Attendees will also understand the functions of a consumer router in a wired environment and begin basic troubleshooting in a consumer level IP network.

During this course students will carry out hands-on exercises to both test and expand on what the have learned. This course will cover the basic IP Networking knowledge of the curriculum required for the ESC-N certification exam.

Key skills you will learn:

  • Understanding the 7 layer OSI Model and how it relates to networking (essential learning).
  • Applying the OSI model to residential network setup and testing.
  • Recognising and choosing basic network hardware.
  • Assigning and documenting IP Addresses - using the right addresses for the right job.
  • Basic network troubleshooting.

Learning outcomes:

  • Describe the layout of a basic network.
  • Explain the difference between network and point-to-point communications.
  • Identify typical network hardware.
  • Connect & configure a home router, switch, wireless access point & client device.
  • Test basic Internet and local network connectivity at OSI layer 3.
