Develops the skills necessary to design and support a security system for an Intranet/Internet installation. Students will secure network devices, integrate firewall technologies, implement intrusion prevention and secure network connections through virtual private networks.
Prepares learners to configure the software applications and services that are Unified Communications. Unified Communications is an emerging class of applications and services designed to improve communications within the modern organization--to keep workgroups connected, enable them to collaborate effectively and streamline business processes. Learners will configure a converged network environment to establish unified messaging and Voice over IP.
Manage a computing environment using well known enterprise level system management tools that provide a comprehensive solution for client and server management. In this class you will configure software deployment, Operating System deployment, patch management, Identity and Security management, and inventory management of the infrastructure.
Prepares learners to be thorough, consistent, and efficient in their work as a Windows System Administrator by providing them with the foundational elements of Windows PowerShell and PowerShell scripting. Learners explore the use of the essential PowerShell commands and techniques needed to be productive within Windows PowerShell.
Examines switching, routing, and wireless essentials including the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in small networks. Learners analyze wireless local area networks (WLAN) and security concepts. Learners apply configuration and troubleshooting techniques on routers and switches for advanced functionality using security best practices. Learners resolve common issues with protocols in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
Provides the student with a thorough grounding in Windows® Server®. Once the student completes the competencies for this class, they will be able to install, configure and administer a Microsoft® Windows® Server operating system. This course will place the student on the correct track in becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA).
