Design and Security of Enterprise Networks
CCS Acad. year 2020/2021 Winter semester 5 credits
Designing network topology with security. BPG, MPLS, MPLS VPN and VxVLAN technologies. Multihoming, mobility, renumbering. IPv6 native implementation and transition techniques. Optical networks. Automated network configuration using IPAM, DevOps and NetOps.
Language of instruction
Subject specific learning outcomes and competences
Students learn concepts of network design, security and management of enterprise networks. They will understand network technologies like BPG, MPLS, VxVLAN, VPN tunneling, QoS and others.
The course is focused on advanced networking technologies employed in ISP and telcom networks. It includes interdomain routing, IPv6 transitions technologies, L2 virtual technologies and quality of services. Hands-on lab training will be provided on active network devices and Linux stations.
Why is the course taught
This course prepares students for a role of network administrators in ISP networks.
Prerequisite kwnowledge and skills
Student are expected to be familiar with configuration of active network devices and advanced configuration of Linux systems. Cisco courses CCNA Routing and Switching or CCNP Route are recommended as prerequisities.
