Subject outline

LAN Switching and IP routingare the two key enablers of internetworking. This subject mainly focuses on how the switching technologies areimplemented in a network and how we can secure access to a network in switch levelusing port-security and enhance performance of a network by using VLANs. Other main aspect covers in this subject is IP routing. Key concepts of IP routing together with different types of routing and routing protocols are carefully analyzed to make critical decisions on which routing type or protocol is most suitable for a given scenario. Also, practical implementation of each of these key features are covered in a simulated environment.
