This course teaches students how to build a remote access network to interconnect central sites to branch office and home office/telecommuters. Students learn to configure modems and asynchronous dialup connections, Point to Point protocol (PPP), Integrated Digital Services Network (ISDN) including Basic Rate Interface (BRI) and Primary Rate Interface (PRI), and Frame Relay. Topics also include broadband and virtual private networks (VPNs). Once the network is built, students learn to control access to the central site, as well as to maximize bandwidth utilization over the remote links. Course fee. Prerequisite: NET 202.
