Proposed (new) course description:

This course provides a comprehensive, theoretical, and practical approach to learning the technologies
and protocols ne
eded to design and implement a converged switched network. The hierarchical network
design model is covered, including appropriate device selection for each layer. Basic switch
configuration, implementation of Virtual LANs, VTP, and Inter
VLAN routing, dif
ferent implementations
of the Spanning Tree Protocol, and the implementation of a WWLAN is also covered.

Rationale: This Cisco course is taught in line with worldwide standards geared
toward specific Cisco
and networking topics. A considerable amount of the course
material is online and controlled by Cisco. There are upcoming changes in the
content and description of the standardized Cisco courses. The CIS department
would like to stay current with world sta
ndards and certifications, and is
proposing this change to stay consistent with the upcoming Cisco standard.
