About this Unit
This unit covers router hardware, routed and routing
protocols and the mechanisms by which routing information is propagated around the network. The inner workings of the TCP/IP protocol are examined. Access Control Lists, used to manage network
security and traffic are also introduced.
You will learn how to configure routers in multi-protocol environments in order to
interconnect Local Area Networks (LANs) and to connect Local Area Networks to Wide Area
Networks (WANs). These topics are studies within the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI)
This unit is mapped to the
Cisco Networking Academy, Semester 2 .
To achieve this unit you must:
- Understand and configure routers and routing protocols for LANs and WANs
- Carry out router operating system management
- Maintain and troubleshoot networks using the TCP/IP suite and diagnostics
- Configure security using Access Control Lists
