Introduction to computer networks
Two or more devices are connected together using networks.Files are sent from one device to another in the form of data packets. A file sent over a network is broken into small chunks of data known as data packets. These data packets are transmitted by the sender.
At the receiver end, the file is re-built by arranging data packets in order.
Protocols define the set of rules that control the way the data is sent over the network.
This A Level Computer Science module introduces computer networks to your students, explaining:
- A network and its types
- Wired and wireless networks
- Hardware components required for networking
- Different types of routing
