module will explain internet routing protocols, Ethernet switches and
associated protocols. Addressing structures will be designed for
campus scale networks and the suitability of LAN and IP protocols
evaluated for a modern infrastructure.
The aims of this module are:
. to provide students with an understanding of Internet routing protocols, Ethernet and further IP networking;
. to cover parts 2 and 3 of the Cisco CCNA syllabus;
. to build upon material introduced in CE155.
After completing this module, students will be expected to be able to:
1. Explain and configure Internet routing protocols for interconnecting networks.
2. Explain the principles of, and configure, Ethernet switches and associated protocols.
3. Design addressing structures and interconnecting strategies for campus scale networks.
4. Assess the suitability of relevant LAN and IP protocols within a modern communications infrastructure.
