Learning outcomes:
Subject represents close interconnection of the study programme with the industrial experience where the goal is to prepare students for industrial certification of CCNP Switch (642-813 Switch – Implementing Cisco IP Switched Networks). Student will get essential information on how the large scale networks are designed with the emphasis placed on switching on different layers of the OSI model. Student will learn how to build and maintain virtual local area networks, how to route between the VLANs and how to manage large scale wireless infrastructures.
