Local Area Networking 2 Ð Server+

This course is designed to assist students in successfully obtaining the Server+ certification. This certification is meant for mid- to upper-level technicians responsible for server hardware functionality. It is a mid-level, vendor-neutral certification which is a pertinent complement to vendor-specific networking certifications. [32-48-80] Lab Fee

Implementing an Advanced Server Infrastructure

Focusing on Windows Server 2012 enterprise administration, topics include managing and maintaining a server infrastructure, planning and implementing a highly available enterprise infrastructure, planning and implementing a server virtualization infrastructure and designing and implementing identity and access solutions. This course maps to the Microsoft Certified System Expert (MCSE) examination 70-414. [24-48-72] Lab Fee

Windows Server Enterprise Administration

Focusing on Windows Server 2012 enterprise administration, topics include planning and deploying a server infrastructure, designing and implementing network infrastructure services, designing and implementing network access services, designing and implementing an Active Directory infrastructure (logical) and designing and implementing an Active Directory infrastructure (physical). This course maps to the Microsoft Certified System Expert (MCSE) examination 70-413. [24-48-72] Lab Fee

Security+

This course prepares the student for the CompTIA Security + certification examination. Students will learn about industry-wide security topics including communication security, infrastructure security, cryptography, access control, authentication, external attack and operational and organization security. Other topics included in this course are protocols used in Linux, UNIX, and Windows 2000, in addition to the TCP/IP suite component protocols and Ethernet operations. Students will gain knowledge in capturing, analyzing, and generating IP traffic; how to exploit protocol weaknesses; and examine defensive solutions. Packet filtering, password policies, and file integrity checking are also covered. [24-40-64] Lab Fee

Routing Protocols and Concepts – This course describes the architecture, components, and operation of routers, and explains the principles of routing and routing protocols. Students analyze, configure, verify, and troubleshoot the primary routing protocols RIPv1, RIPv2, EIGRP, and OSPF. By the end of this course, students will be able to recognize and correct common routing issues and problems. Students complete a basic procedural lab, followed by basic configuration, implementation, and troubleshooting labs in each chapter. Packet Tracer activities reinforce new concepts, and allow students to model and analyze routing processes that may be difficult to visualize or understand. [24-42-64] Lab Fee

Cisco Networking 1

Networking Fundamentals – This course introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. It uses the OSI and TCP layered models to examine the nature and roles of protocols and services at the application, network, data link, and physical layers. The principles and structure of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. Labs use a “model Internet” to allow students to analyze real data without affecting production networks. Packet Tracer (PT) activities help students analyze protocol and network operation and build small networks in a simulated environment. At the end of the course, students build simple LAN topologies by applying basic principles of cabling, performing basic configurations of network devices such as routers and switches, and implementing IP addressing schemes.
