CNIT202E – Routing Protocols and Concepts - Fall 2009 - Tuesday and Thursday 6-9pm Cloud 218 Instructors –Sam Bowne & Sufyaan Mateen

This course describes the architecture, components, and operation of routers, and explains the principles of routing and routing protocols. Students analyze, configure, verify, and troubleshoot the primary routing protocols RIPv1, RIPv2, EIGRP, and OSPF. By the end of this course, students will be able to recognize and correct common routing issues and problems. Each chapter walks the student through a basic procedural lab, and then presents basic configuration, implementation, and troubleshooting labs. Packet Tracer (PT) activities reinforce new concepts, and allow students to model and analyze routing processes that may be difficult to visualize or understand.
