Module Title:Networking II
Language of Instruction:English
Credits: 10
NFQ Level:6
Module Delivered In 5 programme(s)
Teaching & Learning Strategies: A mix of traditional lectures, laboratory work and take-home projects will enable the learner to fully understand and practice the various networking concepts presented.
Module Aim: To provide learners with an appreciation of the function and characteristics of protocols and services at various layers of established networking models.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner should be able to:
LO1 Analysis both IPv4 and IPv6 address allocations and formulate appropriate addressing schemes for an internetwork.
LO2 Divide a network using IPv4 and IPv6 subnetting techniques to optimise network performance and meet user requirements.
LO3 Distinguish between static, default and dynamic routing.
LO4 Develop and verify basic router and switch configurations in accordance with requirements
LO5 Plan and deploy Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs)
