Internet working, particularly the concept of routing, is a fundamental building block of networks of all scales, from the home, through the enterprise, to the internet itself. Understanding network addressing, routing and the operation of underlying network services is crucial for someone embarking on a career in network administration or network engineering. This course is foundational for more advanced network concepts. Though the industry certification is not formally part of this course, students undertaking this course will cover concepts and techniques which are consistent with the first part of the Cisco CCNA industry certification, should they wish to pursue it separately.

The course provides students with an understanding of routers and routing, the fundamental building block of enterprise networking. Practical skills introduced include designing IP addressing schemes, TCP/IP Internet working, implementing routed networks and programming and managing router infrastructure. Issues surrounding ethics for network administrators are discussed, and different roles within network operations teams are introduced.
