CSC 430 Advanced Network Architecture and Protocols (3)


Prerequisite: CSC 340  
This course offers the basic elements of network communication. This course focuses on the primary aspects of data communications networking, including a study of the Network, Network Protocols and Communication, Network Devices, Network Layer, Transport Layer, Application Layer and Subletting IP Networks. Students will start at Layer 1 with the study of various Layer 1 interface and cabling configurations. They will construct and test various cables with connectors. Moving up the OSI layers, students will focus on IP network addressing, network design, and enhanced hands-on router and port configurations. They will also learn security protocols and do static routing, EIGRP, RIPv2, and OSPF configurations. Students will also develop Access Control Lists (ACLs) used in modern day networks as a prime method of controlling network security and implement the ACLs on laboratory networks. Concentration on layers 4 through 7 include studying TCP, UDP, data reliability, and error correction methods, on the ladder to the FTP, HTTP, SMTP, DNS, and TFTP protocols of Layer
