Managing Networks & Telecommunications
'The objective of this course is to provide students with a basic understanding of the technical and managerial aspects of business data communications and networking. The course is divided into three parts. The first part addresses the fundamental concepts using the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) layered architecture model. The second part introduces the network technologies including, LANs, MANs, WANs, wireless technology and the Internet. The last part addresses the management aspects of networking including network design, integration and security. Hands-on labs allow students to relate fundamental concepts to practical applications by managing a network in a client/server environment while case studies and design projects provide the opportunity to apply the knowledge to practice.'
