COMP06234 2018 Routing and Switching Essentials
This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with virtual LANs and interVLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;
Explain, configure and troubleshoot routers to make forwarding decisions using static routing, RIP, OSPF and EIGRP
Explain, configure and troubleshoot a switched network in a small to medium sized business
Explain, configure and troubleshoot basic access control lists in a small to medium sized business
Explain, configure and troubleshoot NAT/PAT and DHCP in a small to medium business
Teaching and Learning Strategies
Simulation-based learning activities promote the exploration of networking concepts and allow students to experiment with network behaviour.
Hands-on labs help students develop critical thinking and complex problem solving skills.
Module Assessment Strategies
Formative assessment - 10 CCNA Routing and Switching quizes held on a weekely basis worth 50%. Students will be allowed to choose their best 8/10 quizes.
A summative practical exam on packet tracer to test the students ability to configure and troubleshoot routing and switching concepts to meet the CCNA Routing and Switching requirements, this will be worth 50% CA.
Repeat exam and/or practical to examine the learning outcomes that have not been achieved.
