This course is a lab. The goal of the course is to reinforce some of the networking concepts that were taught in any introductory networking course. The lab is structured around exercises that highlight topics such as addressing, subnetting, bridging, ARP, routing (RIP, OSPF), TCP, ICMP, NAT, DHCP, DNS, etc. The course consists of 10 weeks of networking labs. In lab quizes are used to evaluate the students’ understanding of the material and ensure that students have attempted the lab exercises in the class handouts. Students are required to review introductory networking material for each lab.
