CIS 272 Syllabus
Course CIS 272 - Cisco III
LAN Switching and Wireless is the third of four courses leading to the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification. The primary focus of this course is on LAN switching and wireless LANs. The goal is to develop an understanding of how a switch communicates with other switches and routers in a small- or medium-sized business network to implement VLAN segmentation.
This course focuses on Layer 2 switching protocols and concepts used to improve redundancy, propagate VLAN information, and secure the portion of the network where most users access network services. This course will go to great lengths to explain the underlying processes of the common Layer 2 switching technologies. The better the underlying concepts are understood, the easier it is to implement, verify, and troubleshoot the switching technologies. Each switching concept will be introduced within the context of a single topology for each chapter. The individual chapter topologies will be used to explain protocol operations as well as providing a setting for the implementation of the various switching technologies.
The labs and Packet Tracer activities used in this course are designed to help you develop an understanding of how to configure switching operations while reinforcing the concepts learned in each chapter.
Course Learning Outcomes:
The intention is for the student to be able to explain basic
switching concepts, configure VLANS on Cisco switches, and
identify and describe the components in a small wireless
