CINT 260 Cisco Exploration: LAN Switching and Wireless
Prerequisite:CINT 161 or CINT Program Advisor Approval.The pri- mary focus of this course is on LAN switching and wireless LANs.The goal is to develop an understanding of how a switch communicates with other switches and routers in a small- or medium-sized busi- ness network to implement VLAN segmentation.This course focuses on Layer 2 switching protocols and concepts used to improve redun- dancy, propagate VLAN information,and secure the portion of the network where most users access network services.This course goes to great lengths to explain the underlying processes of the common Layer 2 switching technologies.
CINT 261 Cisco Exploration:Accessing the WAN
Prerequisite:CINT 260 or CINT Program Advisor Approval.The pri- mary focus of this course is on accessing wide area networks (WAN).
The goal is to develop an understanding of various WAN technolo- gies to connect small- to medium-sized business networks.The course introduces WAN converged applications and quality of serv- ice (QoS).It focuses on WAN technologies including PP ,Frame Relay,and broadband links.WAN security concepts are discussed in
detail,including types of threats,how to analyze network vulnera- bilities, general methods for mitigating common security threats and types of security appliances and applications. The course then explains the principles of traffic control and access control lists (ACLs) and describes how to implement IP addressing services for an Enterprise network,including how to configure NAT and DHCP. IPv6 addressing concepts are also discussed.During the course,stu- dents will learn how to use Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) to secure a router and implement IP addressing services.Finally,students learn how to detect,troubleshoot and cor- rect common Enterprise network implementation issues.
