Aims and objectives

The aims of this unit of study are to build on to the skills acquired in the fundamental routing of networks subjects. Students will gain a greater detailed knowledge of the workings of the main IGP protocols as well as learn about the main EGP protocol BGP. Student will also acquire a basic understanding of IPv6 and its workings and gain a good understanding of remote solutions for geographically separated companies.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Develop, document and deploy an implementation plan for a large scale IPv4 & IPv6 networks
2. Assess and appraise the use of interior gateway protocols, and justify their use in network design and configuration.
3. Assess and appraise the use of BGP, and understand and demonstrate the attributes used for path manipulation.
4. Plan, execute and verify route redistribution.
5. Appraise reasons for manipulating routing update traffic.
6. Plan, configure and verify internet connectivity.
7. Implement security in a routed network.
