SYNOPSIS

SWITCHING AND ROUTING course introduces students to the equipment, applications, and protocols in a small network. The course provides knowledge on routing protocols such as Routing Information Protocol (RIP) and single-area Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol which includes VLSM, VLANs and Dynamic Trunking Protocol (DTP). Students also learn about the routing tables and Access Control Lists (ACLs). Students’ skills are developed through hands-on exercises in the laboratory on configuration, installation and troubleshooting of a switched network.

 

COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES

 

Upon completion of this course, students should be able to :

 

1. discover the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. (C3, PLO1)

 

2. perform the configuration of routers and switches for basic functionality. (P#, C3, PLO2, PLO1)

 

3. demonstrate a proper troubleshooting procedure for routers and switches to resolve common routing issues in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. (A3, P4,

 
 

PLO4,PLO2)
