This course provides direct experience with telecommunications functions and equipment through experiments and demonstrations. Students work individually on a set of network gear to learn the fundamental techniques of voice and data switching, and the fundamental functions of data networking and services. Topics begins from LAN Switching (VLAN, Spanning Tree, Layer 2 security, Wireless LANs), Efficient IP addressing designs (CIDR, VLSM), LAN Routing (RIP, OSPF), WAN Remote Access Technologies (Frame Relay), VPN architectures (IPSec, MPLS VPN), IP next generation (IPv6) and transition methods from IPv4 to IPv6 or coexisting network of both addressing scheme using tunneling solution such as ISATAP, 6to4, GRE, and Teredo tunnels. Students must then complete a research project on an advanced topic such as (Multicast, BGP, VoIP, QoS (DiffServ, RSVP, CoS), L2 & L3 Queuing Mechanisms, Firewall Security, and others), to complete their coursework. Each experiment is designed to focus on some particular aspect of systems management, development, maintenance, or troubleshooting for either enterprise telecommunications customers or telecommunication service providers. Procedures require the use of actual commercial equipment and services and observation using packet analyzers including Wireshark and reporting of behavior and performance compared to specified requirements. The midterms and the final exams are designed to reflect the real world networking scenarios encompassing the technologies learnt through theory and lab practical.
Please note: Student groups and laboratory periods for the remainder of the semester will be established during the first class lecture meeting.
An additional 3 hours of unscheduled lab time is required.
Distance learning class enrollment limited to 5 students.
To obtain practical experience that builds on the theoretical understanding acquired in other course and to gain hands on experience with various networking gear.
