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.
