Learning outcomes:
Subject represents close interconnection of the study programme with the industrial expectations in preparation of students for industrial certification of CCNP TSHOOT (642-832 TSHOOT - Troubleshooting and Maintaining Cisco IP Networks). Student will learn how to troubleshoot large scale networks both for routing protocols and switched environment. Student will get experience in resolving design issues of the networks based on different dynamic routing protocols, interVLAN routing, using the wireless networks and different configuration concepts which are used during the network design process and in the troubleshooting scenarios.
