Course description

Acquiring knowledge and understanding. The student must demonstrate knowledge of the characteristics and structure of a telematic network, with particular reference to active network equipment and their location within the TCP / IP standard. Making informed judgments and choices. The student must demonstrate that he has developed a critical ability to integrate knowledge and make judgments, also on the basis of limited or incomplete information, on the criteria for setting up and designing a telematic network. Communicating knowledge and understanding. The student must be able to answer the oral test questions in a clear and exhaustive way. It must be able to explain the techniques learned and used for the implementation and design of a telematic network. Capacities to continue learning. The student must be able to learn independently new knowledge in the topics covered in teaching and to integrate in them further correlated knowledge.

Prerequisites

Basic knowledge of data processing.

Learning assessment

The test is based on a practical test and an oral test. The practical test consists of two parts: a design of an intranet network with the subnetting calculation (which is assigned a maximum score of 10 points) and a software simulation of the same intranet (which is assigned a maximum score of 10 points). An oral exam on the topics (which is assigned a maximum score of 10 points)
