Microsoft Network Design

This course teaches students, through lectures, discussions, exercises, and projects, how to analyze the business and technical requirements of an organization and then create an appropriate Microsoft Windows 2000–based networking services design. Throughout the course, students learn how to evaluate existing designs and recommend solutions to improve the security, availability, and performance characteristics of the network. Each chapter emphasizes how to translate business goals into design requirements. The course is appropriate for students who want to become a network designer or who plan to take the Microsoft Certified Professional Exam 70-221: Designing a Microsoft Windows 2000 Network Infrastructure.

This course teaches students to optimize network designs by incorporating networking services such as Routing and Remote Access, Network Address Translation (NAT), Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), Domain Name System (DNS), Windows Internet Name Service (WINS), and Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS).

Many designs rely on multiple protocols such as Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), Internetwork Packet Exchange/Sequenced Packet Exchange (IPX/SPX), AppleTalk, and Systems Network Architecture (SNA), and students learn how the network services design must accommodate these protocols. During this course, students learn how to provide network access for remote users with dial-up, Virtual Private Network (VPN), or RADIUS solutions. Students learn how to incorporate the appropriate encryption and authentication methods for each design.

The Projects in the Project Manual and the Labs in the textbook give students the opportunity to create a complete solution for an organization. Students must apply all the design decisions discussed in a chapter of the textbook to create the design for the organization depicted in the Project Manual or textbook scenario. The Project Manual and textbook provide worksheets to assist the students during the business and technical analyses.
