Session 7: Networks of computers


In this session, you will explore how we can progress beyond individual computers and join them together to form networks of computers. You will look at some of the technologies that make this possible, how computers have been linked together to form the internet, and how the internet itself is developing especially through wireless technology to become the ‘internet of things’.
