ICS 32300 Cisco I-Introduction to Networks

This course is the first of two courses which covers the knowledge and skills required to successfully install, operate, and troubleshoot a small branch office network. The course includes topics on the Operation of IP Data Networks; LAN Switching Technologies; IP Addressing (IPv4 & IPv6); IP Routing Technologies; IP Services (DHCP, NAT, ACLs); Network Device Security; Basic Troubleshooting. In addition, the student will learn the real-world implications of the technologies as they are actually used in the current technological climate. This course prepares the student to be a practitioner in the network field of Information Technology. Extra study and experience may be required outside of the course work to prepare the student to pass the Cisco examination. Taking this course alone does not guarantee the student will pass the Cisco examination. This course is part of cluster; however, it will be taught in sequence.
