This course provides insight into the architecture, components, and operations of routers, switches and wireless devices in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot networks with technologies such as static routing, virtual LANs (VLANs), inter-VLAN routing, Dot1q trunking, , Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Stateless Address Auto Configuration (SLAAC), Spanning-Tree Protocol (STP), port security, standard access control lists, and device discovery protocols. Students work with both IPv4 and IPv6 addressing and subnetting. First hop redundancy and basic Wireless LAN (WLAN) configuration are also covered Students must have access to a Windows based multi-media computer.
