    COURSE DESCRIPTION: With the effect of globalizations and outsourcing for efficient operations, Industry has evolved rapidly in using Wide Area network during the last decade. Many organizations are now national and multinational in scope and require networks that span globally. Employees require reliable secure remote access when traveling or working from home. It is necessary to provide cost efficient, secure access on a global scale. In this course, students will learn data communications technology used by telecommunications carriers, various protocols, technologies and service offerings required to design, implement and maintain these enterprise networks. WAN network technologies such as ATM, Frame Relays will be discussed. A Wide Area Network design project will be used to reinforce the networking knowledge that the students have learned to date

    COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES: Describe data communications technologies used in carrier facilities for Wide Area Network transmission

    Compare and contrast the various protocols and technologies used in wide-area network (WAN) environments and Local Area Network that are connected over WAN.

    Evaluate PPP encapsulation and authentication techniques using this technology to control access on WAN interfaces

    Explain the uses, services, standards, components, and operation, of Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) communications and Frame Relay

    Evaluate common carriers and service providers with respect to their wide area networking product offerings including services such as: Frame Relay, ATM, SONET

    Design reliable, secure and scalable WANs utilizing proven methodologies.

    Design, manage, maintain and troubleshoot remote access networks

    Optimize traffic and enhance remote connectivity on dedicated WAN connections using DDR and traffic shaping techniques

    The following statements are selected from Centennial College policies approved by the Board of Governors.

    Student Responsibilities Students are expected to know the contents of the course outline and to discuss with the professor any areas

    where clarification is required.

    Students should keep all course outlines for each course taken at Centennial College. These may be used to apply for transfer of credit to other educational institutions. A fee may be charged for additional or replacement copies.

    Other Policies Students should familiarize themselves with all College Policies that cover students rights, responsibilities, and the Academic Appeal process. For further information, consult the Academic Matters Section in the full-time and Continuing Education calendars. The Academic Appeal Application form is available from any Enrolment Services Office.

    Proof of Student Status Students must produce official photo identification at any time during the semester when requested to do so by any professor. (The official piece is the Centennial Student Card.) Continuing Education students do not have Centennial Student Cards, and so they may use other forms of photo identification, such as a drivers license, health card, or other government-issued photo identification.

    Final Examinations When writing a test or examination, students must put their official photo-ID cards in full view for review by the invigilator. Students who do not have official photo-ID will be permitted to write the examination with a substitute photo-ID, but they will be required to produce photo-ID at the program or department office within 24 hours or the next business day following the examination, or else the examination results will be void.
