CMPTR 273 Syllabus
Course CIS 273 - Cisco IV
Accessing the WAN is the last of the four courses leading to the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Certification. The primary focus of this course is on accessing wide area networks (WAN). The goal is to develop an understanding of various WAN technologies to connect small- to medium-sized business networks.
The course introduces WAN converged applications and quality of service (QoS). It focuses on WAN technologies including PPP, Frame Relay, and broadband links. WAN security concepts are discussed in detail, including types of threats, how to analyze network vulnerabilities, general methods for mitigating common security threats and types of security appliances and applications. The course then explains the principles of traffic control and access control lists (ACLs) and describes how to implement IP addressing services for an Enterprise network, including how to configure NAT and DHCP. IPv6 addressing concepts are also discussed. During the course, you will learn how to use Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) to secure a router and implement IP addressing services. Finally, students learn how to detect, troubleshoot and correct common Enterprise network implementation issues.
The labs and Packet Tracer activities used in this course are designed to help you develop an understanding of how to configure routing operations while reinforcing the concepts learned in each chapter. In addition, the student will prepare for the CCNA Exam.
Upon Completion of this course you
will be able to:
Course Learning Outcomes:
The student will develop
knowledge and skill in implementing point-to-point and
point-to-multipoint wide area network protocols. The student will be
able to implement, maintain and troubleshoot either NAT or IPv6 as a
method of extending the currently depleted address space of IPv4.
The student will be able to secure network communications using
multiple methods such as access control lists, authentication
protocols, cryptography, and will be able to automate the management
of IP addresses using the dynamic host configuration protocol.
