COMP 2629 - Enterprise Networking Fundamentals

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

Following on from COMP 1002 students are introduced to the fundamental concepts and terminology related to data communications and enterprise networks. COMP 2629 is required for Applied Network Administration and Design, ANAD and is also an elective in the CST/PTS Diploma for those who want COMP 4704 Applied Network Security. Students are introduced to the basic (design, implementation and management) concepts and terminology related to data communications and networking. The OSI model as well as the TCP/IP protocol suite at the physical, data link, network and transport layers are used throughout the course to demonstrate concepts and implementation. Topics include: network topology, protocols, transmission media, switching techniques, access control and addressing for wired and wireless networks. There is also an overview of network security and network management principles. Participants will investigate how requirements relate to network design and network administration. They will also study how computers exchange data over LANs and WANs. Labs and exercises will examine network protocol implementation as well as show how to troubleshoot and improve network design. Upon successful completion, students will be prepared to start COMP 3700 MS Windows Server Administration. They will have acquired a practical understanding of data communications, networking and design of enterprise networks.​ This course will only be offered twice per year in January and in April.
