Course objectives
The main goal of the course Networks and Routing Protocols is to provide students with information on modern computer networks and allow them to acquire practical skills for building and managing computer networks. During the course students will be acquainted with the OSI reference model layers (their functionality and protocols), Ethernet network architecture, issues of static and dynamic routing (protocols RIPv1, RIPv2, EIGRP, and OSPF), and with IOS operating system.
At the end of this course, students will:
know the principles of communication in computer networks;
be familiar with the different layers of the OSI reference model, with their functionality and protocols;
have knowledge and experiences necessary to build Ethernet networks;
know the principles of static routing;
know dynamic routing protocols;
be able to configure Cisco routers.
  • Communicating over the Network.
  • OSI reference model and its layers (application, transport, network - IPv4 addressing, data link, physical).
  • Ethernet network architecture.
  • Introduction to routing and packet forwarding.
  • Static routing.
  • Introduction to dynamic routing protocols.
  • Distance vector routing protocols (RIPv1, VLSM and CIDR, RIPv2, routing tables, EIGRP).
  • Link-state routing protocols (OSPF).
