Catalog Description: This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in large and complex networks. Students learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. Students will also be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, STP, and VTP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement DHCP and DNS operations in a network. (Additional fee required)
