LO1: Identify the operation of the protocols that are used inside the Internet and use the seven-layer
model to classify networking topology, protocol and security needs.
LO2: Evaluate LAN technology issues, including routing and flow control. Explain the difference
between switches and routers. Build and troubleshoot Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Leased line networks.
Connect networks with routers.
LO3: Critically analyse specific processes and functions that apply to a layered network model, with
specific reference to TCP/IP; Subnet a network using multi-level subnetting and provide a subnetted IP
design based on a given topology or business profile;
LO5: Evaluate the business implications of the proposed network application through the use of a
network performance simulator or Analyzer and recommend alternates that would improve on the
