Class Data Communication and Newtorks

  • Presentation


    This corse aims at providing the basic concepts related to data communication networks, from its basic usage to planning, design and management of computer networks, both in resources and security roles, allowing a better understanding of the emerging potentials.

    Information and communication are two of the most important strategic areas for business success. Currently almost any medium to large-sized company in areas from banks and insurance companies to entertainment and health has an IT department where network and data communication professionals have a fundamental role.
