This unit extends the studies of the prerequisite unit by examining the concepts and technologies used in large scale computer networks.  On completion of this unit students will be able to plan, design and configure both local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs). Topics studied include applying redundancy and load balancing for improved throughput and reliability, securing network devices, wireless networking, routing using dynamic gateways, WAN construction and associated technologies, securing network devices and protocols, and troubleshooting. Students will learn how to construct such networks by undertaking a study of the Cisco Academy CCNA Routing and Switching curriculum and also explore more advanced networking concepts such as virtual private networks, hierarchical network design, and network management in the context of solving real- world problems.
