CISS 272 Advanced Networking Topics- VoIP And Wireless Technologies

This course will present evolving and emerging topics in networking to advanced networking students. The two main focal points of this course will be VoIP (Voice over IP), 802.11n and 802.11a/c wireless implementation and advanced troubleshooting methods as presented in the Cisco Certified Network Associate and Professional (CCNA and CCNP) exam curriculums. These components will necessarily be presented with an integrated approach citing their interdependence in accord with the Enterprise Composite Network Model (ECNM). The VoIP component will present implementation QoS (Quality of Service) concepts, deployment best practices and challenges in both small and large business environments. The wireless component will focus on the 802.11n wireless technology while introducing the new 802.11a/c standard and will give students the knowledge base to survey, analyze, design, implement, configure and deploy a secure wireless infrastructure with an in-depth understanding of today’s BYOD practices. The course will also include a substantial troubleshooting component to provide students with advanced experience in correcting errors and solving complex routing and switching issues in a deployed production setting.
