TE 270 - Routing and Switching I

Credit Hours: 3

This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.

Course Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • understand and describe basic switching concepts and the operation of Cisco switches;
  • understand and describe enhanced switching technologies such as VLANs, VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP), Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) and 802.1q;
  • configure and troubleshoot basic operations of a small switched network;
  • understand and describe the purpose, nature, and operations of a router, routing tables, and the route lookup process;
  • configure and verify static routing and default routing;
  • understand and describe how VLANs create logically separate networks and how routing occurs between them;
  • understand and describe dynamic routing protocols, distance vector routing protocols, and link-state routing protocols;
  • configure and troubleshoot basic operations of routers in a small routed network, like:
  • a. Routing Information Protocol (RIPv1 and RIPv2)
  • b. Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol (single-area OSPF)
  • c. VLANs and inter-VLAN routing
  • configure, monitor, and troubleshoot ACLs for IPv4 and IPv6.
  • configure and troubleshoot Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Domain Name System (DNS) for IPv4 and IPv6; and
  • configure and troubleshoot Network Address Translation (NAT) operations.
