Like an architect Who designs the entire layout of a house that includes plumbing, electrical, wiring and so on, a network architect too considers an entire bunch of factors before designing a network. Apart from network topologies, different IEEE standards like Ethernet, Token Ring, and FDDI and so on. The IEEE standards form a basis for promoting standards related to maintaining networks with safe and standardized connections, encryption, and error checking algorithms and network media. All these standards fall under IEEE’s Project 802 that was implemented to standardize the logical and physical elements of networks.
When it comes to troubleshooting issues related to networks, the most crucial aspect is identifying the problem area and solving it. Problems may occur in connections, in topologies in devices and in many such components or services associated within networks. In this module, you will learn the procedure involved in troubleshooting topologies and their impact on networks. To troubleshoot topologies successfully, you must have a strong understanding and some basic working knowledge of the different network topologies and their influence on networks.
The IEEE networking specifications pertaining to connectivity, error checking algorithms, encryption, networking media, emerging technologies, etc come under IEEE’s Projects 802 which was implemented in order to standardize the physical and logical elements of a network. IEEE developed the 802 standards before ISO came up with the OSI model. But the IEEE 802 standards can be applied to the OSI model’s layers. The IEEE 802 standards are given in brief below:
Lets us discuss some of the IEEE standards:
