CISS 216 CISCO Networking 2*

This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches, and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks

III. Catalog Course Description

This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches, and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks

IV. Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course, a student will be able to:

Understand and describe basic switching concepts and the operation of Cisco switches Understand and describe enhanced switching technologies such as VLANs, VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP), Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), Per VLAN Spanning Tree Protocol (PVSTP), and 802.1q Configure and troubleshoot basic operations of a small switched network Understand and describe the purpose, nature, and operations of a router, routing tables, and the route lookup process Configure and verify static routing and default routing Understand and describe how VLANs create logically separate networks and how routing occurs between them Understand and describe dynamic routing protocols, distance vector routing protocols, and link-state routing protocols Configure and troubleshoot basic operations of routers in a small routed network: Routing Information Protocol (RIPv1 and RIPv2) Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol (single-area OSPF) Configure and troubleshoot VLANs and inter-VLAN routing Understand and describe the purpose and types of access control lists (ACLs) Configure, monitor, and troubleshoot ACLs for IPv4 and IPv6 Understand and describe the operations and benefits of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Domain Name System (DNS) for IPv4 and IPv6 Understand and describe the operations and benefits of Network Address Translation (NAT) Configure and troubleshoot NAT operations

V. Topical Outline (Course Content)

Outcome: To master course content as defined by course objectives and presented in lectures and demonstrations to the student. Assessment: Students will attain a passing grade on assignments, quizzes, labs, and comprehensive written and production final exam. Outcome: To develop skills with the terminology, design, implementation and troubleshooting of computer networks. Assessment: Demonstrating mastery of terminology, design, and troubleshooting simple local area networks (LANs) by completing assigned activities to a passing level. Outcome: The instructor will actively involve the students in a continual evaluation of the class. Assessment: Classroom evaluations given to the students will be utilized to determine the effectiveness of the delivery method. Outcome: To manipulate and customize network device configuration. Assessment: Given a lab or written scenario, the students will complete the hands-on labs to the satisfaction of the instructor.
