LAN/WAN Integration

This course will cover vendor-independent issues relating to the integration of key networking technologies. LAN/WAN Integration is designed to explain internetworking between LANs as well as LANs with WANs. Students will learn about networking services protocols architectures and technologies and will provide new insight into the methods of integrating LANs with WANs. Additionally this course will cover connectivity hardware devices such as bridges routers and switches.
