The ISMT 318 Applied Network Management is designed to prepare students for career in the
exciting networking field.

Four of the CCNP curriculums are covered in our course. Through these curriculums, students
will have a foundation in and apprentice knowledge of networking for the small office/home
office (SOHO) market. Knowledge in install, configure and operate LAN, WAN and dial access
services. Including but not limited to use of these protocols: IP, IGRP, IPX, Serial, AppleTalk,
Frame Relay, IP RIP, IPX RIP, VLANs Ethernet, Access Lists etc.

The first semester covers the CCNP curriculum 1 and 2. In this semester, students will learn
about the ISO OSI Reference Model, Networking Devices, Cabling, IEEE Standards, Protocols,
WAN and WAN Devices, Cisco Router Components and Configurations, TCP/IP Protocol Stack,
Routing Protocols and Troubleshooting. This semester starts from the basic of computer network.
The next semester covers CCNP curriculum 3 and 4 will go into detail of the configuration of
Routing Protocols, Network Segmentation, Network Design and Documentation, Security/Access
Implementation and WAN Protocols.

Detail of the first semester (CCNP curriculum 1 and 2):
ISO OSI Reference Model
o Analyses network in layers, using the OSI Reference Model to explain how
different network venders and technologies increase their interoperability and
Networking Devices
o Introduce LAN devices, such as routers, switches, and hubs. Evolution of
networking devices and the basics of data flow.
o Introduce different type of networking media, such as Coaxial cable, UTP cable,
STP cable and Fiber-optic cable. Standards for technical performance such as
IEEE Standards
o Well know IEEE communication standards including IEEE 802.2, IEEE 802.3
and IEEE 802.5.
o Following the OSI Reference Model, students will understand the
communication protocols at every layer. And the importance of Internet Protocol
for routing.
WAN and WAN Devices
o Includes WAN and WAN Devices, standard and technologies. And routers’
function in a WAN.
Cisco Router Components and Configurations
o Study the router components and the essential components related to router
configurations. Use IOS commands to configure the router.
TCP/IP Protocol Stack
o Compare and contrast the TCP/IP model with the OSI Reference Model.
Routing Protocols
o IP routing protocols, such as RIP and IGRP. And different ways of routing.
o Analyses network problems into layer 1, layer 2, layer 3 or upper layers errors.
