The module will permit the student to plan, configure, maintain, and scale a routed network in a medium-to-large network.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;


Plan, implement and troubleshoot a network using EIGRP and OSPF


Manipulate routing updates and implement path control


Implement BGP for ISP connectivity


Evaluate IPv6 addressing for successfull implementation in an Enterpriese Network

Module Assessment Strategies

Continuous assessment will take place in a laboratory environment employing simulation techniques as well as hands on testing using approved industry standard equipment
