Beyond the NIC: Networking for the Mac Admin

Speakers: Phil Steen

Level: Fundamental, Lecture

Excerpt: Moving outside the Mac, we’ll discuss general networking information to better enable you as an administrator to understand and manage your network.

Description: Many admins have honed their Mac-specific skills over the years and have become highly specialized in managing Macs and iOS devices, often skipping over networking concepts and practices. This session aims to cover what you as a Mac Admin should know about basic networking, including:
– Layer 2 vs Layer 3 networking
– Switching principles
– Firewall fundamentals
– How you can apply the above to make your job easier
