Subject   

This subject covers a range of networking concepts and protocols, including link aggregation, loop prevention, dynamic routing, network security, and secure communication. Students will gain a conceptual understanding of these topics and learn how to apply them in network design and configuration.

Syllabus   

  • Exploring link aggregation and loop prevention techniques.
  • Understanding the principles behind STP and its role in network stability.
  • Delving into switching techniques and VLAN configurations for efficient network management.
  • Learning the concepts of dynamic routing through protocols like EIGRP and OSPF.
  • Introducing IPv6 routing protocols and their importance in modern networks.
  • Implementing Access Control Lists (ACLs) to ensure network security and control traffic flow.
  • Understanding the setup and configuration of secure communication channels between different network sites.

Learning outcomes   

  • Understand the concept of link aggregation and its benefits in network design.
