ITT 1032 - Routing and Switching Essentials (CCNA-2)

Credits: 3
Hours/Week: Lecture 2 Lab 2
Course Description: This course is the second of four courses designed to prepare students for Cisco CCNA certification, and the second of two courses required for Cisco CCENT Certification. This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. This course is designed for students in the Information and Telecommunications Technology (ITT), Enterprise Computing Technology (ECT), and Cybersecurity Virtualization and Forensics (CVF) programs.
MnTC Goals

Prerequisite(s): ITT 1000  and ITT 1031  with grades of C or higher or instructor consent.
Corequisite(s): None
Recommendation: None

Major Content
  1. Introduction to Switched Networks
  2. Basic Switching Concepts and Configuration
  3. VLANs (Virtual Local Area Networks)
  4. Routing Concepts
  5. Inter-VLAN Routing
  6. Static Routing
  7. Routing Dynamically
  8. Single Area OSPF
  9. ACLs (Access Controls Lists)
  10. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
  11. Network Address Translation (IPv4)

Learning Outcomes
At the end of this course students will be able to:

  1. configure Network Address Translation (NAT) operations for IPv4 networks.
  2. configure access control lists (ACLs) for IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
  3. configure static routing and default routing (RIP and RIPng).
  4. construct an Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) network.
  5. demonstrate how VLANs create logically separate networks and how routing occurs between them.
  6. describe basic switching concepts and the operation of Cisco switches.
  7. explain Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) for IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
  8. explain the purpose, nature, and operations of a router, routing tables, and the route lookup process.
  9. identify dynamic routing protocols, distance vector routing protocols, and link-state routing protocols.
