On completion of the course, the student knows the architecture and operations of routers and switches in a small network. The student can design and build small routed networks and connect a local area network into a larger network, configure needed IP and routing parameters and troubleshoot the network. Student knows the TCP/IP communication and TCP/IP services. The student gains an understanding of implementing address translation, access controls lists and DHCP-services.
