This course will provide students with intermediate skill level topics for configuring network routers and switches. Students will learn network design, variable length subnets, network address translation, details on distance vector and link state routing protocols. Students will use hands-on practice and skill building exercises using physical and simulated routers and switches. Students will learn how to design and build routed networks using current various routing protocols. Upon successful course completion, students will be able to access, manage, and secure a router or switch, as well as build various sized networks and do troubleshooting to correct problems in the network.
