Broadcasting on network:


Network broadcasting in its basic form can be seen as a yell on a network. Devices on a network trying to discover an IP address based upon a name will generally get this information from a name server such as DNS or WINS. In the case that the name cannot be resolved to an IP address, one of the final things that will happen is a broadcast. It is often best to try and limit the amount of broadcasting that is occurring on a network. One of the best ways to make that happen is to subnet your network by using a router.

IT Professionals looking to learn more about some of the other items listed such as DNS and WINS can do so by looking into MCITP or MCSE training. To learn more about network routing, check out the CCNA course!
