Course Description

Networking Laboratory is a course where you actively learn by doing. You will learn network concepts and protocols by configuring a network using routers and PCs, observing the actual behavior of these machines and the overall network, and analyzing and evaluating the results. This is a learning experience different from other networking courses where you read and think in an abstract level. We have a laboratory that only enrolled students can enter and use just for that purpose. Topics covered include IP, ARP, ICMP, RIP, OSPF, BGP, TCP, UDP, STP, DNS, NAT, DHCP, SNMP, IGMP and PIM-DM/SM. 

After taking this course, you will have a better understanding of the network behavior of individual machines and the whole network in general.
