Tutorial Highlights

  • Networking is the foundation of designing IT technologies infrastructure and a critical aspect of IT services delivery.
  • Networking is the linking of two or more computers by cables (wired connections) or wifi( wireless connections ) for transmission, exchange, and sharing of resources and data. Commonly shared resources include exchanging files, electronic communications, or printing.
  • Our Beginners Networking tutorial will introduce you to the basics of networking. You will learn about two exclusive topics in networking - Using Hamming Code to detect and correct data errors; and secondly, learn about building different types of networks.

Skills Covered

  • Basic communication model
  • uses of networks, types of network topologies

Topics Covered

  1. Understand the hamming code
  2. Study the Importance of Types of Networks: LAN, MAN, and WAN

Lesson 1: What Is Hamming Code, the Network Technique to Detect Errors and Correct Data

A very specialized networking technique for detection of error and damage in the data transmission between network channels, is called Hamming Code method. This is a very popular method for error detection in single-data bit errors at the receiver’s end in the original data. This Is a very important learning factor in Networking as it helps in the capture or errors in DRAM  memory chips and hardware used in communication technology.  You will learn to detect on-bit and two-bit errors as well as correct one-bit errors. The use of redundancy bits and parity bits are covered in this chapter.

Lesson 2: Study the Importance of Types of Networks: LAN, MAN, and WAN

Every network is built according to the communication needs and may be wired or wireless networks. In this learn about the different types of networking options and which topography is to be used in which situation. You will also explore the limitations and challenges of the network types and the utility of these networks in the lesson. These basics will help you to understand the basic design of a network and how to generate the connections.


Networking concepts are the building blocks of digital connectivity. Being skilled in hamming code and using networking techniques to correct data errors gives you an edge over regular networking students.
