(Cisco Networking 1)
4 Units/4 hours lecture. Grade or P/NP. Recommended: Completion of CS 80.15 AND CS 81.21 AND Eligibility for ENGL 100 or ESL 100. This course introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. It uses the OSI (open systems interconnection) and TCP (transmission control protocol) 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 (internet protocol) addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. Network simulator activities help students analyze protocol and network operation and build small networks in a virtual environment. Students build simple LAN (Local Area Network) topologies by applying basic principles of cabling, performing basic con gurations of network devices, including routers and switches, and implementing IP addressing schemes.Network Fundamentals is the rst of the four courses leading to the Cisco Certi ed Network Associate (CCNA) designation. CCNA 1 introduces Cisco Networking Academy Program students to the networking eld.(CSU.)a
Essentials (Cisco Networking 2)
4 Units/4 hours lecture. Grade or P/NP. Prerequisite: Completion of CS 82.21A. Recommended: Eligibility for ENGL 100 or ESL 100. Thiscoursedescribesthearchitecture,components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to con gure a router and a switch for basic functionality and learn and the principles of routing and routing protocols. By the end of this course students will be able to con gure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with single-area OSPF (Open Shortest Path First), VLANS (Virtual Local Area Networks), and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Routing and Switching Essentials is the second of the four courses leading to the Cisco Certi ed Network Associate (CCNA) designation. CCNA 2 builds and expands on the topics learned in Networking Fundamentals (CCNA 1) and prepeares the students to take the Cisco Certi ed Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) test.(CSU.)
(Cisco Networking 3)
(Formerly CS 82.21C) 3 Units/3 hours lecture. Grade or P/NP. Prerequisite: Course Completion of CS 82.21B. Recommended: Eligibility for ENGL 100 or ESL 100.
Scaling Networks (CCNA 3) is the third of the four courses that prepares students for the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) certi cation. This course describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a large and complex network. Students learn how to con gure routers and switches for advanced functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to con gure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with single and multi-area Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) and Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP), in both Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and IPv6 networks.(CSU.)
(Cisco Networking 4)
(Formerly CS 82.21D) 3 Units/3 hours lecture. Grade or P/NP. Prerequisite: Course Completion of CS 182.21C. Recommended: Eligibility for ENGL 100 or ESL 100.
Connecting Networks (Cisco Networking 4) is the last of four courses that prepares students for the Cisco Certi ed Networking Associate (CCNA) certification. This course discusses the Wide Area Network (WAN) technologies and network services required by converged applications in a complex network. The course enables students to understand the selection criteria of network devices and WAN technologies to meet network requirements. Students learn how to configure and troubleshoot network devices and resolve common issues with data link protocols. Students also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) and Virtual Private Network (VPN) operations in a complex network.
4 Units/4 hours lecture. Grade or P/NP. Recommended: Course Completion of CS 82.21A AND Eligibility for ENGL 100 or ESL 100. An in-depth exploration of the essentials of computer network security. Students will analyze security objectives and the role of policy deployment while they practice defending against network attacks. Students will learn about attacks and malware, E-mail, web components, software development, disaster recovery, risk, change and privilege management, forensics and legal issues. Scenario-based curriculum describing a start-up company in which the students are employed with speci c roles, will also be incorporated in the class. Tasks and product deliverables, for the start-up company, which are based on industry standards, augment assignments and exams. Coverage of both CompTIA’s Security+ certi cation exam and the (ISC)2 SSCP certi cation, is integral to this course. Students should have a familiarity with network operating systems.(CSU.)
