II. OBJECTIVES:


This course does not teach network design in such a way that you could put the words Network Designer on your resume. This course teaches you the thought process and the way to look at a requirements document to design a WAN. Ninety-nine percent of the time, this class creates a network technician or engineer that has some early knowledge of LAN design on a local level and how to interface to an already existing WAN. Very seldom are WANS designed at this level anymore.
