Computer Networking Technology - CNT 230
CCNA Networking 3 (4-0) 4 Cr. Hrs.
This is the third of four courses designed to prepare students for the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification. In this course, network topics are expanded to include components, technologies and protocols that are used to create and manage larger and more complex networks. Students will implement and troubleshoot advanced routing configurations, technologies that improve the performance and reliability of local area networks and additional protocols needed within networks.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
- CNT 220 with a minimum grade of 2.0.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Identify protocols used within networks containing interconnected switches.
- Utilize a command line interface (CLI) to configure virtual local area networks (VLANs) spanning multiple switches.
- Summarize the operation of VLAN trunking protocol (VTP) and dynamic trunking protocol (DTP).
- Utilize a CLI to configure link aggregation.
- Utilize a CLI to configure current spanning tree or switching loop detection protocols.
- Validate switch connections and operation in networks containing interconnected switches.
- Explain the importance of first hop redundancy protocols.
- Implement first hop redundancy protocols using a CLI.
- Differentiate between distance vector and link-state routing methods.
- Explain the function and operational aspects of current dynamic routing protocols.
- Utilize a CLI to configure dynamic routing within a network.
- Validate routing functions in a complex routed network.
