Networking

Being one of the fast- growing fields, networking is a branch closely intertwined with information technology (IT). It incorporates the processes of building, using and maintaining computer networks – including hardware, software and protocols – so that multiple computing devices can share data (sources: Technopedia; Lifewire).

Networking can comprise home or business computer networks, and wired or wireless computer networks. On a par with their classification, computer networks can differ in their design. The 2 basic forms of network design are client/server and peer-to-peer networks.

A client/server network is maintained by a centralised server that stores things like emails, Web pages, files and applications, and is accessed by client computers or other client devices. Nevertheless, a peer-to-peer network doesn’t generally rely on a centralised server – instead, client devices connect and communicate with one another to share information and support the same functions (source: Lifewire).

While client/server networks are ubiquitous within businesses, peer-to-peer networks are more commonplace among homes. And, with networking playing a vital role for most businesses in today’s world, networking roles are in increasingly high demand.
