Course Description
This course extends a student’s networking knowledge from SOHO environment into a large scale enterprise level network. The student will learn network design principles and practical skill in designing and building a scalable internetworking enterprise network using Wide Area Network (WAN) technologies. Topics include advanced IP addressing, NAT, PAT, DHCP, Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), Integrated Service Digital Network (ISDN), and Frame relay configuration. It covers topics on network management, troubleshooting and network optimization. This course also covers Cisco Network Academy CCNA 4 module and a case study.
