Microsoft Introduction to Network Design and Management w/Carol Whitson
Course number: 085979
Course length: 1.0 day(s)
You are familiar with telecommunications networks. For a network to function effectively, sound planning, design, and management are required. In this course, you will examine the design considerations and management aspects of a telecommunications network.
Course Objective: You will examine network design and management.
Target Student: This course is for beginners, IT managers, or other professionals who would like to have a deeper understanding of network design, management, and associated technologies. Specifically, it is intended for individuals who are preparing for entry-level careers in the telecommunications network management field, who do not have prior academic backgrounds in telecommunications studies or technical work experience in the telecommunications field, but who do have some basic knowledge of telecommunications. The basic information presented in this course will enable those individuals to pursue further specialized training in specific technology areas with the eventual goal of qualifying for work as a network management professional.
Prerequisites: Students preparing to take this course should have completed the following Element K courses or their equivalents: Introduction to Telecommunication and Fundamentals of Data Communication: Level 2
Delivery Method: Instructor led, group-paced, classroom-delivery learning model with structured hands-on activities.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- explain the basic concepts of network design and management.
- examine the basics of network design.
- explain the basic concepts of network security.
- describe the basics of enterprise networks.
- explain the basic concepts of network management.
- describe the telecommunications management network.
- examine SNMP and CMIP.
- describe the management of broadband networks.
- describe the tools and applications used for network management.
