Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes
01. Design and evaluate IP addressing scheme and subnetting, including VLSM
- Lecture from Week 2 till Week 4 focus in detail on the design and evaluation of IP addressing scheme according to the network specification.Students will demonstrate their understanding during the hands-on lab sessions.
02. Implement distance vector and link state routing protocols.
- Lectures and labs from Week 5 and 6 deals with a detailed study and implementation of distance vector and link state routing protocols.
03. Evaluate the performance distance vector and link state routing protocols.
- Teaching week 6 till 7 involves the strengths and weaknesses, various costs involved in their implementation of the routing protocols studied during Week 5 and 6. Labs will involve hands-on expericnce on implementing these protocols through Cisco gears.
04. Implement multiprotocol network.
- Labs during Week 7 and 8 focus on implementing multiple routing protocols for a complex large scale network.
05. Design and implement topologies using emerging technologies
- Through case studies, identify emerging technologies, through tutorials on how to design complex networks, subjected to financial, technical and administrative constraints. The designed network must also meet certain performance metrics.
06. Describe broadly the scope of the LANS and WANS.
- Lecture between Week 8 and 10 focus on the scope of LANS and WANs.
