Basic Networking Design and Configuration Hands-On Part 2 Cont. Repeat

In this 3-hour hands-on session participants will learn about and practice good network design and configuration. We will focus on local area networks (LAN), virtual LANs (VLAN), IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, switching, and routing. We will also briefly discuss wide area networks (WAN), network address translation (NAT), security, and dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP). In the lab portion of the session, participants will work in teams of two to build a campus LAN using demo equipment provided by Cisco. This session is appropriate for participants with any level of experience. No specific background knowledge is required. This session is limited to 30 participants, but may be repeated if there is sufficient interest. Participants should bring:
