Course Description:

This course is the third in the series and is the first
advanced course. It addresses those tasks that
network managers and administrators need to
perform when managing acc
ess and controlling
overhead traffic in growing, routed, networks once
basic connectivity has been established. The course
discusses router capabilities used to control traffic
over LANs and WANs, as well as connecting
corporate networks to an Internet Se
rvice Provider
(ISP). Extensive individual and group lab work is
required.

Co
re Course Performance Objectives:


The student will be able to:


1.

Evaluate the variables of the design of a scalable network (CCC 2, 4, 5, 6,
& 7; PGC 5, 9, 11, 12, 13, & 14).


2.

Apply the three
-
layer hierarchical design model to construction of medium
to lar
ge networks (CCC 2, 4, 5, 6, & 7; PGC 5, 9, 11, 12, 13, & 14).


3.

Evaluate the selection of routing protocols toward the robustness of a
network to include both reliability and availability (CCC 2, 4, 5, 6, & 7;
PGC 5, 9, 11, 12, 13, & 14).


Measurable Per
formance Objectives
:


1.

Evaluate the variables of the design of a scalable network.


1.1

Select a Internet Operating System (IOS) feature as a solution for a
given internetwork requirement (i.e. enabling route summarization is a
way to shrink the size of an O
pen Shortest Path First (OSPF) routing
table).

1.2

Describe classful and classless routing protocols.

1.3

Describe the use of the fields in a routing table.

1.4

Given a network plan that includes IP addressing, explain if route
summarization is or is not possible.

1.5

Co
mpare, configure, and test the scalable routing protocols OSPF,
Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) and Border
Gateway Protocol (BGP).

1.6

Explain how Domain Name System (DNS) and Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) are used to manage IP
addresses.

1.7

Describe the key requirements for scalable routing protocols.


2.

Apply the three
-
layer hierarchical design model to construction of
medium to large networks.


2.1

Given an Internet Protocol (IP) address range, use Variable
-
Length
Subnet Masks (VLSM
s) to extend the use of the IP addresses.

2.2

Describe how routing updates can be optimized.

2.3

Configure an alternative to using access lists.



3.

Evaluate the selection of routing protocols toward the robustness of a
network to include both reliability and ava
ilability.



3.1

Given a pre
-
configured laboratory network, discover the topology,
analyze the routing table, and test connectivity using accepted
troubleshooting techniques.

3.2

Explain the differences between the possible types of areas, routers, and
link
-
stat
e advertisements.

3.3

Given a set of network requirements, configure an access list to limit
access to your pod and verify proper operation (within described
guidelines) of your routers.

3.4

Given a set of network requirements, configure redistribution between
dif
ferent routing domains and verify proper operation (within described
guidelines) of your routers; resolve path selection problems that result in
a redistributed network.

3.5

Given a set of network requirements, configure policy
-
based routing
within your pod an
d verify proper operation (within described guidelines)
of your routers.

3.6

Configure an IP helper address to manage broadcasts.

3.7

Explain IP private addresses and Network Address Translation (NAT).

3.8

Explain reflexive, context
-
based and dynamic access list types
.



Evaluation Criteria/Policy
:



1.

The student’s knowledge and skills will be demonstrated and assessed
through tests, exercises, and assignments covering the previous
objectives. A final grade for the course will be based on periodic quizzes,
topic tests,

projects, skills tests and a final written examination. The
instructor will determine the number and mix of these assessments and
the weight of score toward a final course grade.


2.

The letter grade will be determined using the Collge Grading System:

3.

In order to achieve the maximum benefit from this course of instruction,
the student is responsible for attending class and completing all course
work including tests, quizzes, assignments, reports, presentat
ions, etc.

Academic Standing Policy, Academic Honesty Policy, Student Rights
and Responsibilities, and other policies relevant to their academic
progress.
