Curriculum > KS4 > Unit

Computer networks have become an integral part of our daily lives. This unit allows learners to explore how a computer network works from the hardware required to the protocols used for communication. It also allows them to explore simulations of networks using Packet Tracer software. Packet Tracer is free for schools to use and is used in universities to train network engineers.
