    A fenti forma a Neptun sajátja, ezen technikai okokból nem változtattunk.

    A kötelező előtanulmányi rendek grafikus formában itt láthatók.

    (SubjectResult (" BMEVITMAB01 ", "mark", _)> = 2
    OR SubjectResult (" BMEVITMA310 ", "mark", _)> = 2)

    (SubjectResult (" BMEVIMIAB00 ", "signature", _) = -1
    OR SubjectResult (" BMEVIMIA219 ", "signature", _) = -1)

    AND NO (SubjectResult (" BMEVITMA314 ", "mark", _)> = 2
    SubjectResult (" BMEVITMA314 ", "RECORD", CurrentSemester ()) > 0)

    AND (Training.Code = ("5N-A8") OR Training.Code = ("5NAA8"))
    The above form is the property of Neptun, we have not changed it for these technical reasons. 
    7. Objectives, learning outcomes and obtained knowledge The aim of the course is to introduce students to the operation and system administration tasks of computers and complex, networked information systems. The course provides a systems-based overview of the operational tasks of information systems, including the most common IT services. We present the general standards that underpin IT operations.

    7. Monitoring and reporting. Archiving. Planning of back-up, scaling tasks.
    8. Data centers. Classic, multi-tier architecture. Oversizing. Examples of two-tier and three- tier data center design. Fat tree topology. Spine and leaf architecture. Spanning tree control algorithm and its limitations. Equal-cost multi-path (ECMP). High performance clusters. Demilitarized zones. Web servers. Internal, functional architecture of data centers. Data center services.
    9. Virtualization and cloud IT. Principles of cloud IT. Iaas, PaaS, SaaS. Public, private and hybrid clouds. Migration issues. Interoperability. Standardization directions (UCI, OCCI). Benefits and risks, Monitoring. Access control.
    10. Monitoring systems. End-to-end view. QoS, QoE. Network management methods. Traffic monitoring, traffic data processing, service level analysis, error management. Telecommunications Management Network (TMN), TMN FCAPS. Using network devices. SNMP.
    11. Service Operation: general requirements and expectations. Key operating activities. Design, commissioning, development, supervision, maintenance and support of IT services. Centralization and standards. Consequences of the BYOD principle in the operation of services. Operational tasks of the e-mail service.
    12. Remote access service. Enterprise Internet access, VNC, RAS, and web-based technologies. Printing, network printing protocols, formats, common solutions. Synchronisation issues, Cloud office.
    13. WiFi operation: SOHO and enterprise WiFi operation. Indoor and outdoor infrastructure, coverage, radio parameters, number of users. Centralized enterprise WiFi infrastructure: authentication and access control, BYOD, WPA2-Enterprise configuration issues, L2 roaming technologies, and overview of configuration options.
    14. Standards for the operation of IT devices (IPMI, DMI, WBEM). A common information model of the elements of the IT infrastructure. (CIM, MOF) . Service level operation, SLA requirements. ITIL .

    Laboratory practice topics:
    · Linux practice: basics, firewall configuration, user management, MySQL administration
    · Linux practice: web server configuration (Apache), shelling (scripting), performance and bug management (monit).
    · Network device configuration: from  pure HW to subnet settings protected by security zones.
    · Network device configuration: static and dynamic routing settings, basic testing tasks.
    9. Method of instruction Lecture and laboratory practice

    10. Assessment Mid-term: at least pass (2) completion of both performance evaluations each and at least pass (2) completion of laboratory sessions.

    11. Recaps It is possible to replace one of performance evaluations once in the teaching period (repeated test). Replacement of a practical task is only possible during the teaching period. To complete the laboratories, the method of application and assignment will be described in a lecture. Deviation from this position is possible only with the prior agreement of the person in charge. In case of a failure on a laboratory, the improvement is possible at the designated dates at the end of the semester. Only one laboratory can be improved during a semester.
    12. Consultations
    According to an individual discussion, in consultation with the lecturer of the subject.

    IMSc program
    IMSc topic and method
    1. On the second test and on its replacement, additional tasks may be performed for IMSc points.
    2. On a voluntary basis, an additional advanced assignment may be chosen in a topic related to the course.
    IMSc score
    A maximum of 20 IMSc points can be reached by a student as follows:
    1. Successfully solved additional task in a test (or in its replacement): max. 9 IMSc points. Additional assignments will only be assessed if the student has earned a mark on all other assignments at that exam.
    2. Based on the evaluation of the volunteer's advanced semester assignment, max. 11 IMSc points. The advanced level assignment is assessed only if the student has earned a mark based on the semester requirements.
    IMSc points can also be awarded to students not participating in the IMSc program as described above.
