CISS 270 Advanced Routing and Wide Area Network (WAN) Infrastructure

This course provides an in depth exploration of Wide Area Network (WAN) design through the study of the related protocols and the methods used to optimize data flow. It combines sound theoretical foundations with hands-on lab exercises to provide the students depth and experience in understanding and managing networks. Topics include hierarchal design of scalable networks, advanced features of EIGRP, OSPF and BGP routing protocols for both IPv4 and IPv6, and path control tools such as route maps, policy based routing, and route filtering. Network security concepts are integrated with nearly all topics, and students will be creating secure, authenticated designs. This course builds on the concepts taught in CISS 121 , and assumes the student has a working knowledge of standard WAN protocols and the Cisco Internetwork Operating System. This course uses the resources available at the Hudson Valley Community College CCNP networking laboratories and the Cisco Network Academy. The course content aligns with the topics covered in the Cisco routing certification exam (CCNP ROUTE 300-101) and will help prepare students for successful completion of that certification.
