CIS 233 : Routing and Router Configuration
This course provides an in-depth examination of routing and router configuration as used on WANs and, specifically, the Internet. The course covers layers 2, 3, and 4 of the OSI Model. Students gain the basic knowledge to plan, implement, and control routers connecting several networks using a variety of protocols. TCP/IP and the protocols used to run and manage today's routers is covered in depth as well as commands used to implement, configure, and manage these protocols. Prerequisite: CIS 134 with a C or better or permission of the instructor. Four hours of lecture per week. Instructional Support Fee applies. Gen. Ed. Competencies Met: Information Literacy. 4 credits Fall

- Describe the relationship between router interfaces, directly connected networks, and the routing table.
- Describe the role of dynamic routing protocols metrics and which metric types are used by several dynamic routing protocols.
- Devise, compute and apply subnetting schemes using CIDR and VLSM standard in making efficient use of scarce IPv4 addresses.
