Course Synopsis To introduce Internet Protocols, network architecture, static and dynamic routing
protocols, switching and VLANs, for IPv4 and IPv6. To enable students to handle
router and switch configuration for common routing protocols. To discuss campus
network architecture and design, network security and firewalls, as well as the use
of Access Control List (ACL) to control network access.
Learning Outcomes At the end of this course the students will be able to:
• Identify Principles of Internet Protocol Usage, Architecture and Design
(PO1, C4)
• Understand routing and security issues via hands-on switch and router
configuration to combine technical knowledge with actual practice (PO2,
• Apply knowledge and experience of Internet Protocols in network
architecture and design (PO3, A3, CTPS)
• Apply understanding of router and switch configuration, routing, and
security issues in network management (PO7, A2, LL)

Course Policy

• All assignments MUST be submitted before/on the date stated. Late submissions without prior approval from
lecturer will not be accepted. Late submissions with prior approval will be penalized; each day late will result in one
grade reduction.

• Tests MUST be taken on the specified date. No replacement tests will be given without MC or other official
approval letters.

• Plagiarism and Copying is a serious academic offence. Students found plagiarizing and/or copying will be given an
F grade whether for the given assignment/report or for the entire coursework grade, and will be barred from
sitting for the final exam.

• Please make sure that your handphone is silenced during lectures.
