FSNE: Full Stack Networking Concepts


This module is all about expanding our perspective and knowledge to a more wholistic view of full stack networking. We will cover areas such as network security, wireless networking, voice over IP, and virtualization & cloud.


  • Welcome (1 min)
    • Welcome to the Full Stack Networking Concepts Module!
Network Security - 86 minutes
  • Firewalls & VPNs (22 min)
    • The first thing people usually think about when they think about network security is a firewall. Let’s go ahead and learn what firewalls are really all about.
  • Network Segmentation (8 min)
    • The best tool for segmenting networks: VLANs. But wait, there’s more!
  • Attacks, Threats & Vulnerabilities (19 min)
    • In this interesting lesson we learn about some of the common types of network attacks and some of the ways in which our networks can be vulnerable to attack.
  • Additional Network Attacks (10 min)
    • Here we will discuss some additional types of network attacks such as ransomware, phishing, user de-authentication, insider threats, and logic bombs.
  • Network Hardening Techniques (21 min)
    • In this lesson we’ll learn about some of the common ways to increase the security of our networks.
  • IDS & IPS (6 min)
    • You shall not passssss!!! You will soon find out what we mean 🙂
Wireless LANs - 40 minutes
  • Wireless LANs 802.11 (14 min)
    • Every wondered what all those 802.11 things mean on wireless LAN devices? In this lesson you find out all about that and much more. This will be a comprehensive lesson on Wireless LANs!

    • The security of wireless networks is a really big deal. Let’s make sure we know the most common methods of security for WLANs.
UC & VoIP - 41 minutes
  • Unified Communications (16 min)
    • Let’s start discussing the worlds of Voice and Video over IP with this lesson on Unified Communications!
  • Quality of Service (11 min)
    • We really can’t have VoIP and UC without Quality of Service (QoS). Here’s why…
  • The Voice VLAN (with Lab) (14 min)
    • The Voice VLAN is a special VLAN indeed – we must prioritize it over other traffic.
Virtualization & Cloud - 41 minutes
  • Virtualization (17 min)
    • Let’s dive into the world of virtualization and get a grasp on the world of virtual computing.
  • Cloud Computing (12 min)
    • The era of the cloud would not have risen without virtualization, and here we will learn about all the different ways it now impacts the worlds of Networking and Information Technology.
  • Storage Networking (12 min)
    • We can’t have information without a place to store it. In this lesson we will learn about the methods of storing data on our networks.
