This course provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to design, build, and maintain routing and switching technologies. Students learn routing and switching operations, including implementing inter-VLANs routing, implementing and troubleshooting routing protocols and introduce IPv6 main features, addresses, and basic configuration. Advanced IP services are described, such as applying and troubleshooting Access Control Lists (ACLs), and managing IP address space using Network Address Translation (NAT), and Port Address Translation (PAT).

This undergraduate-level course is 5 To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
