WEBVTT (upbeat music) - Welcome in, I'm your host Lauren Deal and I'll be your learner advocate as we go along, asking all the questions that you may have at home. And in this section, we're gonna be talking about network operations and we have the best person here to talk about it. Welcome to the show, Anthony. - Thank you so much. Yeah, my name's Anthony Sequeira and I'm super excited for this section of content and we are gonna make it fun for you. Lauren and I are gonna do that. This is an area where we start talking about things like organizational procedures and documents and a lot of times this can be very dry. We're gonna make it fun, so we're glad you're here. And also I don't want you to be thinking that this domain will just be that kind of content. We will talk about really cool technologies like network monitoring, like operating the network with tools like DHCP and DNS and using a great time protocol. So there will be pragmatic stuff we'll be hitting. - We're gonna be digging into it and the neat thing about understanding this from Anthony's perspective, Anthony, you have quite the background in this, don't you? - Yeah, yeah, I've really been focused in on networking since 1996. And it's so funny to say that now because time's been racing for me so quickly that I feel like I've been in this industry for four years and then someone will point out to me, no dummy, you're coming up on 30 years. So it's just amazing to think time has really flown. And I guess the fact that I'm so old is gonna benefit us because with a lot of these technologies, I'm gonna be able to tell you kind of the history and the generations and different iterations we've had of tech. - One of the things I'd like to draw your attention to, we'll be talking about in this section is IPv4 versus IPv6 in some areas. So we're really gonna be able to see how things have evolved when it comes to network operations. - That's exactly what I was gonna say, the evolution of how tech has changed. And you're gonna kind of hold on as we drive through the history of that. But also, Anthony, I'm kind of new to networking. And so I might not be the ideal candidate. Who would be the ideal candidate for this? - Yeah, you know, really, ideally, it is someone with their A plus certification that would be right at home here. But let me make this clear, a lot of students that are watching this have really the A plus equivalent knowledge. So if you know your way around PCs and servers and kind of, you know, cabling media and have a good sense for wireless, and you're competent when it comes to basic technology, well, welcome. That means you essentially have the A plus level of knowledge and that will serve you well here. Notice there are no massive like requirements of some big vendor certification or something like that. Network plus type of content, networking, general networking type of content. One of the things we love about it is once you're proficient with a PC, you're ready to jump right in. - Okay, well, I'm feeling excited about jumping right in. So why don't you say we jump right into our first episode for network operations. Click next.
