This unit focuses on the technologies used in constructing a modern network and the routing used within those networks to ensure that data is delivered. In this unit students will learn about the number systems and the mathematics of networks, networking media including installation and testing, cabling of LANs and WANs, operation of Ethernet/IEEE 802 networks, fundamental concepts of switching and routing, subnetting and the TCP/IP model. Students will undertake a study of static routing and dynamic routing protocols. Distance vector and link state routing protocols are considered, and the operation and configuration of RIP, EIGRP, and OSPF protocols are examined in detail. Through practical laboratories students will learn how to construct such networks using Cisco equipment; in particular students will learn how to connect Cisco routers and switchers and to configure routers to operate effectively on a TCP/IP network.


Two multiple choice tests (15% each) 30%, two practical tests (20% each) 40%, research project 30%.  To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit students must complete all CISCO unit requirements and at least 40% of the available research project marks.
