Catalog Description:
Untitled document
This course, for the Information Technology (IT) professional,  describes the architecture, components, and operation of routers, and explains the principles of routing and routing protocols. Students analyze, configure, verify, and troubleshoot the primary routing protocols RIPv1 (Routing Information Protocol version 1), RIPv2, EIGRP (Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol), and OSPF (Open Shortest Path First). Students will recognize and correct common routing issues and problems. Material is presented through a basic procedural labs, basic configuration, implementation, and troubleshooting labs. Network simulator activities reinforce new concepts, and allow students to model and analyze routing processes that may be difficult to visualize or understand.

Prerequisites/Corequisites:
Completion of CS 82.21A (formerly CIS 55.11A)


Recommended Preparation:
Eligibility for ENGL 100 or ESL 100
