This class is very thorough in defining network protocols and security policies. The class goes in depth in business infrastructures and what communication devices are used to implement LANs, WANs, MANs, WLANs, etc. This Instructor expects more than the minimum to get full credit. That means more than 2 replies in each discussion post, more than the minimum scholarly sources, and impeccable APA formatting. Dr. Jones is very knowledgeable and he will probe to continue the conversation with other related topics.
