The focus of this course is the application of network design and performance concepts. The design considerations for a global network, including LANs and WANs with both wired and wireless functionality, will be applied. End-to-end performance criteria and service levels guarantees will be examined as a part of network design project. Network capabilities to handle varying types of traffic, from low speed data to large image files and streaming video and digital voice, will be explored.

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