- Fundamentals of communication networking
- Networking challenges and protocols
- Design principles of computer networks
- Identify the challenges in a network
- Evaluate and select the appropriate network technology for a given application and environment
- Configure and troubleshoot switches and routers
- Understanding the fundamental technologies of communication networks
- Understanding the theoretical and practical abilities and issues of the various layers and different protocols
Various physical- and datalink-layer protocols and mechanisms are described. In addition, network-layer functionalities and protocols, such as IP addressing, subnetting, and routing, are presented. Transport-layer protocols (e.g., TCP and UDP), services and functionalities, such as congestion control and flow control, are also discussed. The main protocols of the application layer (e.g., HTTP and DNS) will be overviewed.
The subject also discusses the structure and the configuration of routers and switches. Moreover, Access Control List (ACL), Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and Network Address Translation (NAT) are presented.
The lab activities are primarily based on Cisco's networking hardware and software solutions and corresponding to the first two modules of Cisco’s CCNA.
