As networking technologies are at the core of all IT activities, a sound knowledge of the hardware and protocols used to create networks is essential for their efficient management.
This course introduces students to the fundamentals of networking and networking models, including how components of a network are connected to each other, which layout should be followed, and which devices can be used to enable a robust connection.
Students are given extensive knowledge of Windows Server and learn to design, implement, maintain and troubleshoot core network services and roles using the Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Active Directory Domain Services environment.
Students are provided hands-on experience with the hardware of the world’s largest networking company – a definite highlight on their resume.
Students also learn to install, operate and troubleshoot a network based on Cisco components. Finally, they are introduced to LAN Switching Technologies, IP Addressing, and IP Routing Technologies.
Windows still holds the distinction of being the most widely used operating system in the consumer market. But this hasn’t diminished the popularity of Linux, the operating system of choice for a majority of websites online, primarily because it is free to use and extremely secure.
As we delve more into the discipline of system administration we will learn about the Linux OS, the basics of the kernel, and working with disks and file systems. Students will also gain experience in process management, security and authentication.
Knowing how to manage a data center is a skill that will put you in high demand, as data centers enable any organization to store data within its local network.
Students gain in-depth knowledge of the cloud architecture design and infrastructure and learn about installation, configuration and management of VMware vSphere. Additional topics covered are VMware ESXi and VMware vCenter Server.
Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of computing power, database storage, applications, and other IT resources through a cloud services platform via the internet. As the whole IT industry prepares to make a shift from physical storage to cloud storage, a comprehensive understanding of cloud technologies and their architecture helps in preparing students to be ready and adapt easily to the changes the future holds.
Students are exposed to the concepts of cloud computing and its infrastructure. They also learn to set up a cloud environment and get hands-on experience with Amazon Web Services (AWS), which have been adopted by thousands of businesses globally.
This course serves as an introduction to network security and overall security processes as the threats to networks increase. Students analyze a simulated organization’s security needs based on known security threats and select appropriate security hardware, software, policies and configurations based on that analysis.
Computer networking is at the heart of every business, home, and life. As technologies advance, so does the field of networking, as evidenced by the demand in network virtualization, network security, 5G, and ultra-broadband solutions. Speak to an advisor to determine eligibility.
