Learning and teaching
A problem / laboratory based learning approach will be adopted to satisfy the aims and objectives and hence the learning outcomes. Formal lectures will be further strengthened via hands-on individual case studies. First part of the module concentrates on troubleshooting methods and techniques. Students are introduced to detection and remediation of faults that can occur on OSI Layers 1 to 4. Second part deals with Network Management protocols and FCAPS model.
On successfully completing the work covered in this module, the student should be able to:
LO1. Identify and correct common network problems at OSI layes 1,2,3 and 7.
LO2. Explain various techniques used for troubleshooting.
LO3. Identify and select correct tools for Network Management.
LO4. Demonstrate an understanding of Simple Network Management Protocol.
In-class Progress Test and Case Study plus Practical Examination based on the laboratory work.
Progress test assess theoretical knowledge of Network Troubleshooting (LO 1&2), Practical – hands-on troubleshooting skills (LO 1&2) and Case Study involves a topic on Network Management (LO 3&4).
