The technology of the physical security industry is rapidly changing from one of proprietary cabling and communication protocols to IP communications. It is imperative that security company personnel, both in sales and technical areas, develop and learn the details of typical local area and wide area networks, along with the Internet. This will enable them to properly sell, install, program, and service these new-technology devices. This course is designed to provide an introduction to basic networking, explain the common types of networks, develop the students’ knowledge of industry nomenclature, and interest them in the vast possibilities of new products and services that can be provided to their end-users.
