CNT 220 CCNA: Networking IV
The last in a series of four courses designed to help prepare students for CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) certification. Discusses the wide area network (WAN) technologies and network services required by converged applications in a complex network. Covers the selection criteria of network devices and WAN technologies to meet network requirements, how to configure and troubleshoot network devices and resolve issues with data link protocols, and explores how to implement Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) and virtual private network (VPN) operations in a complex network through laboratory exercises and detailed lectures. NOTE: Course topics help students prepare for the CCNA Routing and Switching certification exam, but the exam is not included in this course. Industry certification exams are administered by an independent testing agency.
CNT 220 is offered the second 8 weeks of both the Fall and Winter semesters.
