CIS 320 - Secure Routers and Switches Architecture

5 Credits
This course is a hands-on and career-oriented learning solution with an emphasis on designing and securing routed and switched network. CIS320 lays the foundation for the next two classes in the certificate program. Students in class will gain practical experience about Cisco router and switch basics and IOS configuration. The curriculum helps them develop specialized security skills to advance their careers and academic achievement. In addition, this course helps prepare Cisco certification exams such as CCNA and CCNA Security. The main focus on this course is to deliver 21st century learning experience to help students develop the foundational information and communication technology skills needed to design, configure, build, troubleshoot and secure the network architecture.
