EETS 8303 – Switching and Routing With Lab

October 31, 2022

Switching and routing architectures, protocols, and functions are explained. For switching, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), Trill, Virtual LANs (VLANs), VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP), and inter-VLAN trunking are covered. For routing, static routing and dynamic routing protocols including RIP (version 1 and 2), OSPF, IS-IS, BGP, and Cisco’s EIGRP are examined. IPv4 subnetting, with and without classes, and IPv6 are analyzed. Software tools are used to simulate the operation and performance of protocols studied. A lab using switches and routers is used to provide hands-on, real world implementation of the simulated networks.
