Requisite(s): 31270 Networking Essentials OR 41092 Network Fundamentals
Anti-requisite(s): 32524 LANS and Routing
Recommended studies: open system interconnection (OSI); transmission control protocol/internet protocol (TCP/IP) and data network models; knowledge of networking terminology, data transmission media, data networking components and devices; internet protocol addressing
This subject extends the work done in the prerequisite subject. Students will have the opportunity to both develop sound knowledge and skills to pursue a networking specialisation or to develop a clear model of how networks can impact network-based applications. Students learn the role of routing protocols and how to compare them; how to design construct and implement small to medium-sized intranets; and how to perform basic management and security tasks. The role of TCP/IP, ICMP and other protocols in IP networks are evaluated. Students also learn how CISCO routers and switches are used for the practical work.
