Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module, students should be able to:- Critically Analyze modern routing protocols (i.e. RIP, OSPF,EGIRP)- Evaluate key concepts in modern scalable networks- Select and implement the technologies necessary to redistribute between and to support multiple, advanced, IP routingprotocols, given a network specification.- Given a specification containing multiple routed and routing protocols, implement solutions in a laboratory environment- Select and configure a scalable IP address solution for a specified networkdemonstrate a comprehensive understanding of Campus Networksand Design Models;

Teaching / Learning Strategy

The course will be presented as a programme of lectures supported by tutorials and associated practical work. Students are directed to read appropriate texts and articles to consolidate their knowledge of the topics covered.
