The goal The course aims to introduce students to the concepts of the modern internet and its architecture, as well as modern routing protocols in IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
The outcome The students will acquire basic knowledge of IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS protocol stack, as well as the ability to implement, analyze, and optimize developed solutions and routing protocols. They will acquire the skills to design modern communications networks and configure implemented solutions using a Cisco routers.
Contents of lectures IPv4, IPv6, and multicast addressing. Understanding and implementing basic interior and exterior routing protocols in IPv4 networks. Understanding and implementing basic interior and exterior routing protocols in IPv6 networks. MPLS protocol. Multicast routing.
Contents of exercises Students will familiarize with practical work with Cisco communication equipment. They should do low level network design by themselves of IP WAN network which interconnects dozens of remote location sites and propose the way of implementation major Internet services.
