This course will provide senior networking support professionals the information and skills required to design a networking services infrastructure for large enterprise networks.
The focus of this course will be less on mouse clicking, and more on network design concepts and parameters vital to the successful network architect.
Your prior knowledge about basic networking services such as WINS, DNS, RRAS, RADIUS, Proxy Server, and network hardware will serve as the foundation for the solutions you will design.
The network architect's job is like that of the building architect. He/she maps out the requirements for the organization, and with these requirements in mind, puts together a design plan.
You will discover how TCP/IP and DHCP factor into design solutions, optimizing your solutions for maximum performance and security.
After completing the course, you will be able to:
Describe the attributes of a Windows 2000 networking services infrastructure design.
Translate organizational goals into a design
Define the design requirements for a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) solution.
Design a functional TCP/IP solution
Secure a TCP/IP solution
Enhance a TCP/IP design for availability
Optimize a TCP/IP design for performance
Design a DHCP solution for automating IP configuration.
Design a functional DHCP solution
Secure a DHCP solution
Enhance a DHCP design for availability

To better prepare you to pass the MCSE exam and to provide you an opportunity to practice what you learn within a context,
we have created exercises throughout the series in which you apply your knowledge about Windows 2000 to various scenarios.
You will submit your solutions to the Problem Solver exercises
for scoring, but you should also consider using the discussion groups as a forum for sharing responses.
