Students will learn to design and document networks from the ground up using industry standards. Starting with the network in our own lab, the students will learn to design a simple network and create the necessary documentation to manage a small network. The students will then develop skills to design and document a more complicated network, such as the Iowa Central campus network. They will also learn to document established networks. This will be accomplished by inspecting the campus network, using necessary tools and software to analyze the network and prepare the proper documentation.
