Week 4: Traffic control: destination addresses, route tracing and collision avoidance

Introduction

In this fourth week of the course you will work through the seventh and eighth sessions of the course.

The seventh session shows you how to represent network addresses.

This session will be taught by Judith Williams, a Visiting Fellow of the Open University.

The eighth session concludes your exploration of home networks by looking at tracing packets within a network and managing Wi-Fi for multiple users.

The session finishes with a brief look at some of the ways enterprise networks differ from home and small business networks, which you will explore in more detail in the second half of this course.

This session will be taught by Allan Jones, a Senior Lecturer at the Open University.
