This course aims to provide understanding of the design of enterprise and telecommunications network architecture. It will bring together in-depth coverage of various networking technologies (such as TCP/IP, security, wireless LAN 802.11 etc) in order to provide practical context and integration requirements for real-world applications. It covers the methodology behind the design of building enterprise and core networks to support applications that include data, voice and video. Telecommunications architecture will cover IP Multimedia Systems (IMS) and IP Next Generation Networks (IP NGN). Enterprise architecture will review segments within corporate networks referred to as “Places in the Network” (PINs) such as Data Centres, Wide Area Networking (WANs) and remote branches. Other practical applications will include a review of the Australian National Broadband Network (NBN), Cloud Computing and mobile computing.
