CYBR 6160 - Datacenter Networks
Covers design and configuration principles required to build highly scalable and highly redundant network solutions used by datacenters. Class makes use of commercial grade equipment to build network toplogies and services. Students will work in teams to build a virtualized cluster, load balance application traffic between multiple server blades, assure high availability in Ethernet and IP layers, and able to prioritize important services using QoS. Lab sessions require additional 8-12 hours of work per week. Formerly TLEN 5462.
TLEN 5460 - Introduction to Enterprise Networks
Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
Provides direct experience with networking functions and equipment through experiments and demonstrations. Students work individually to learn the fundamental principles and techniques of voice and data switching and routing within an enterprise environment. Procedures require the use of actual commercial equipment (including Cisco, Juniper, and Arista) plus network services and observation using packet analyzers. Weekly experiments and exams are designed to reflect real-world networking scenarios and require an additional eight hours of work. Recommended prerequisite: CYBR 5010 or CSCI 4273. Formerly TLEN 5460.
