Aims and objectives

This Unit of study aims to provide you with a solid foundation in the technologies and functionality of routing within data networks. The Unit will also provide with an introduction to Wide Area Networks (WANs) and the skills to deploy common network services within a WAN infrastructure.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)

1. Describe the process of routing.(K3)
2. Analyse the operation of and differences between various dynamic routing protocols. (K3, S2, S3)
3. Construct a network with static and dynamic routes. (K3)
4. Use Access Control Lists as a security technique to control traffic flow across the network. (K2, K3, S1)
5. Describe the various WAN technology options for district-sized networks. (K2, K3)
6. Describe and implement various layer 2 protocols on WAN links and configure and describe the functionality of NAT and DHCP network services. (K3)
7. Within a team, design and construct a simulated network with components of LAN and WAN technologies and prepare a technical report and presentation. (K2, K3, S1, S2, S3, A2, A7)
