This course covers the TCP/IP Internet Protocol Suite. It compares the suite to the OSI reference model, and describes the workings of a number of applications such as FTP, Telnet, TFTP, DNS, and DHCP, HTTP and IP Security (IPSec), and Voice over IP (VOIP). Concepts addressed include IP addressing and subnet masking; TCP operation; session-initiation, sequencing, acknowledgment, and windowing; routing including static and dynamic routing, distance-vector versus link-state, and interior versus exterior routing protocols. The course also covers the operation of the popular distance vector routing protocols, including RIP versions 1 and 2, Cisco¿s IGRP and EIGRP, and BGP; the link state protocol standard, OSPF; the management operation SNMP; the next version of IP header called IP version 6; IP-VPN; and Voice over IP, also known as IP.
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
Explain and configure IP address and masking.
Demonstrate the setup of a TCP session and the acknowledgement scheme.
Discuss the router operation, defaults, and options applied to all IP routing protocols, and the priority that the market leader Cisco places on each.
Describe the various standard IP applications such as file transfer, web browsing, remote login, email and Domain Name Server.
Recognize the differences between link state and distance vector protocols.
Compare and configure routing procedures with regard to metrics, decision algorithms, multi-path, summarization, addressing, reliability and updating procedures.
Show how IP provides security across the Internet with IPSec tunneling and Virtual Private Networking.
Be able to explain the operation of the most common routing protocols: RIP, OSPF, BGP, IGRP, and EIGRP.
Explain the concept of MPLS, and its usage in IP-VPN as a carrier offering.
Show the format of SNMP tree structure to get and set MIB attributes.
Discuss OSPF shortest path calculations, adjacencies and link advertisements, various stub areas and virtual links.
Explain the difference between Classful and Classful Domain Routing and how it affects Internet operations.
Show how multicast works at layers 2 and 3.
Show how Network Address Translation helps reduce the IP address space.
Explain the methods for carrying voice over IP networks.
Compare headers for IPv4 and IPv6.
