CompTIA Network+ 2009
The physical and logical shape of a network is called the topology. Topologies have a great deal to do with how a network communicates and even what devices and media can be used on the network. As well, the scope of a network, for example, if it’s a LAN, MAN, or WAN, can have an impact on the type of topology chosen for implementation on the network. This course covers the basic devices used in a network, such as servers, workstations, and hosts, and focuses on the different logical and physical topologies that networks can be based on.

In the late 1970s, those people working in the computer networking field felt that there was a need for a set of standards that could be used by anyone designing and developing applications and services that would need to communicate across a network. The Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model was designed to meet this need. The OSI model is a set of communication standards, or protocols, that enable devices and applications to communicate with each other, regardless of their origin. These protocols are sets of formal rules that govern communication and allow developers to design applications or devices that can communicate with other designer’s products without the need for direct collaboration between them.
