    5. Required knowledge
    6. Pre-requisites

    It is recommended that Computer Network Operations in Practice I, VIHIAV39 and Computer Network Operations in Practice II, VIHIAV42 be completed in advance, or a preliminary study in accordance with the CiscoCCNAv7 ITN, SRWE and ENSA semester.

    In case of students on the Bachelor of Profession in Informatics formation it is recommended to complete the basic subject VIHIBA01, and subject VIHIBB03 from the specialization for Networking and Security.

    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge

    The basic objective of "Professional Networking - Routing and Services" is to further deepen the skills in practical in administration of computer networks. It enlarges the knowledge on technologies related to routing and network services, and provides practical experiences in configuration of network devices. The subject emphasizes the troubleshooting steps and processes to correct configuration mistakes.
    The students who successfully complete the subject acquire the knowledge and skills required for ENARSI part of the Cisco CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) certification. The certification can be obtained in authorized examination centers, independently from the University education.

    12. Summarization of knowledge, Midterm test (theory). Practicing for the practical task.


    13. Practical task.


    14. Discussion and review. Recaps.

    9. Method of instruction

    The course is realized through 4 hours of laboratory work per week, where students complete the assigned tasks using real networking devices or a simulator program. In the classes, we provide special time to review new knowledge, explain certain parts in more detail, and clarify questions that may arise.


    Acquired skills and knowledge:
    a)    Details of IGP routing protocols

    b)    Advanced troubleshooting techniques for IGP configurations

    c)    Details of the BGP protocols and its configuration

    d)    Advanced troubleshooting techniques for EGP configurations

    e)    Configuration and troubleshooting of tunnels

    f)     Troubleshooting techniques for infrastructure security and management

    10. Assessment

    a. during the semester:
    •    Participation: The participation at the laboratory classes is obligatory. They can be missed up to two times (counting 11 teaching weeks and 4x45 minute long laboratory classes a week, a minimum of 82% participation is required). The absences need to be replaced.

    • Entry tests: Preliminary preparation will be checked at the beginning of each laboratory class. The participation requires a sufficient level of knowledge. If a student fail this test, the laboratory work can not be started, and it is administrated as a missed class participation, and it has to be replaced. The preliminary preparation is checked on the 70% of the weeks (max. 10 times) in form of entry tests.
    • Practical task: At the end of the semester, a complex practical exercise has to be solved in the place and time of the class. It is required to solve this task at a sufficient level. The practical tasks can be recapped as described in the "Recaps".
    • Midterm test: During the semester the writing of a written examination is required at a sufficient level. This is done in the place and time of the class. The midterm test can be recapped as described in the "Recaps".

    The midterm test and the practical task are evaluated in percentage results. When the above conditions are satisfied, the grade is determined according to the mean value of the midterm test and the practical task results. The grade is calculated using the following ranges:

    0-49% fail (1)

    50-65% satisfactory (2)

    66-76% medium (3)

    77-87% good (4)

    88-100% excellent (5)

    b. during the exam period: -

    11. Recaps
    • Participation and entry tests: maximum two missed lessons (due to absences or insufficient preparation) can be replaced at a dedicated date (during the semester, or in the replacement week). (3 or more absences can not be replaced, thus in this case the subject can not be accomplished.)
    • Practical task: The practical task can be replaced in the designated replacement time (during the semester or the replacement week).
      Midterm test: The midterm test can be replaced in the designated replacement time (during the semester or the replacement week).
    12. Consultations If required, we provide a consultation opportunity at an agreed time.

    13. References, textbooks and resources
