COM 361 - Introduction to Cisco Networking

This course uses a top-down approach to introduce network applications and application services. The layers of communication in data networks will be explained using network protocol models. Students will design and implement a classless IP addressing scheme for a network. Routers and switches will be used to design and configure a basic Ethernet network, and students will analyze the transport and network layer protocols. Routing protocols, such as RIPv1, RIPv2 and distance vector routing, will be examined and configured. Advanced technologies (voice, video, wireless and security) will also be introduced.
