Network and IT infrastructure

About the course

Network devices including firewalls and routers are the gatekeepers to “endpoint” resources and are increasingly using complex software components. These devices are often remotely accessible and whose configuration changes regularly, making them susceptible to vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. To add to this, network and security teams are often separate parts of an organization often leading to incomplete understanding of vulnerable infrastructure.

This training will be an intensive 40 hours course that will involve the design and implementation of various aspects of Network and IT infrastructure. This course will teach the learners simulation and hardware concepts of designing Network and IT infrastructure. This course will involve mini-project and one main course project.

Course Outcomes

  1. Ability to describe and analyze the hardware, software, components of a network and the interrelations.
  2. Ability to implement Local Area Networks using both static and dynamic addressing techniques including subnetting.
  3. Ability to use networking tool to observe and analyze behaviors of networking protocols
