Introduction to Networks (Course ID: CNTI 1110)

The Introduction to Networks (ITN) course introduces students to networking architectures, models, protocols, and components. These components facilitate the connection of users, devices, applications and data through the internet and across modern computer networks. By the end of the course, students can perform basic configurations for routers and switches to build simple local area networks (LANs) that integrate IP addressing schemes and foundational network security.
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
• Configure switches and end devices to provide access to local and remote network resources.
• Explain how physical and data link layer protocols support the operation of Ethernet in a switched network.
• Configure routers to enable end-to-end connectivity between remote devices.
• Create IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes and verify network connectivity between devices.
• Explain how the upper layers of the OSI model support network applications.
• Use security best practices to configure a small network.
• Troubleshoot connectivity in a small network.
