Course Overview

Credit Hours
Required Courses (16 hours)
Prerequisite: Program admission. This course provides students with classroom and laboratory experience in current and emerging network technology. Topics include basic network concepts, basic network device configuration, network protocols and models, network access, Ethernet and access control, end to end communications, IPv4 and IPv6 addressing and subnetting, fundamental application services, security, and network performance.

This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to

configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. Topics include switched networks, routing concepts, routing in a switched network,

static and dynamic routing, Single-Area OSPF, Access Control Lists, and IP Services (DHCP and NAT).

This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in larger and more complex networks. Students

learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. Students will configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and

resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, and STP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students will also learn how to implement a WLAN in a

small-to-medium network.
