Lesson 7

TCP/IP Features (Conclusion)

In this module, you learned about some of the advanced TCP/IP features available in Windows to optimize network efficiency. We started with a discussing on subnetting and supernetting, and moved on to consider routing protocols.
You learned the factors that you should consider in designing a WAN connection, and the effects of WAN connections on TCP/IP issues and application performance. Finally, we covered concepts in QoS that allow you to control how bandwidth is allocated on your network. Now that you have completed this module, you should be able to:

  1. Define the methods of optimizing the number of available IP addresses
  2. Define how to optimize IP performance on a network
  3. Determine the number of subnets and IP addresses used by remote network segments
  4. Define how QoS enhances network performance
  5. Define the process of setting up QoS connections

New terms

Here are some terms that might be new to you:
  1. Network Address Translation
  2. Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) : A routing protocol designed for use between autonomous systems. BGP is especially useful for detecting routing loops.
  3. Packet assembler-disassembler (PAD) : A network device used on X.25 internetworks.
The next module discusses designing a DHCP solution.
