Protocols – Getting to the “meat” of networking

This week I am teaching on protocols in my networking class. I love the topic and I got excited when I noticed what this chapter was about but I am sure my students will feel differently. I was preparing and I found there to be about 25 acronyms that they will need to learn. They are not so good at memorizing acronyms so I am sure they will complain a bit.

On the bright side, this is the first chapter with real networking “meat” so I am excited. I think they will really enjoy digging down deep into how computers communicate. We also get to learn about subnetting and supernetting where I combine address spaces or break them apart to create more networks and fewer computers on each network or fewer networks with more hosts on each.
