Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
IP Services (40%):
Configure and verify IP addresses using address assignment technologies (e.g. DHCP), Analysis, specify and apply Access Control Lists (ACLs)(e.g. named ACLs, numbered ACLs, standard ACLs, extended ACLs), Design, configure and verify Network Address Translation (NAT) for a given network (e.g. Static NAT, Dynamic NAT, PAT)
WAN technologies and protocols (30%):
Examine access network and core network function and technologies (e.g. DSL, PON, HFC, Ethernet and MPLS)
Virtual Private Networks (20%):
VPNs, site-to-site GRE tunnels, IPsec, remote access VPNs.
Emerging Technologies (10%):
Consider the direction of wireless, access and core networks (e.g. Future internet and Software Defined Networks (SDN))
