This subject extends the work done in the prerequisite subject. Students who are not interested in networking as a career develop a clear model of how networks can impact network based applications. Students who are interested in a career in networking practice or research develop sound knowledge and skills to pursue a networking specialisation. Students learn the role of routing protocols and how to compare them; how to design construct and implement small to medium-sized intranets; and how to perform basic management and security tasks. The role of TCP/IP, ICMP and other protocols in IP networks are evaluated. Students also learn how Cisco routers are used for the practical work.
