MTA or Microsoft Technology Associate is an entry-level certification that provides the fundamentals of a certain technology based on Microsoft products. The MTA: Networking fundamentals (exam 98-366) is one of these certifications that will provide essential networking knowledge and skills to you. This certification can be your first step in networking and towards other advanced Microsoft certifications such as MCSA and MCSE. It can be considered as the Microsoft version of Network+ or Cisco ICND1/CCENT. In this course, you will start the first steps of learning about networking. You will learn about what is a computer network, and what are local area networks or LANs since those are the most basic form of a network you will encounter in the real world. After that, we have to understand network addresses in order to assign them to devices in our network, and thus enable communication between those devices. Now as you have understood the concepts of network address, it is time to practice with them, and we will use Cisco packet Tracer for that purpose. And again will we practice both ARP and ICMP using Packet Tracer in order to understand the concepts, and start establishing our hands-on expertise. Finally, Network Media Types will be explained, starting with wired network media and its different types, followed by a brief but focused explanation of the wireless network media. I hope that you will join me in this course and start your journey of learning computer networking. Happy learning!
