TECU 8003: Scaling Networks
Learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues.
The Scaling Networks course teaches the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in larger and more complex networks. Students learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, and STP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement a WLAN in a small-to-medium network. This course can be followed by the Connecting Networks course, which covers these topics in more depth and teaches learners about WAN technologies and network services.
