Liberty CSIS 430 Advanced Networking and Communication Systems Entire Course



Liberty CSIS 430 Advanced Networking and Communication Systems Entire Course

Course Explanation:

This course focuses on routed data networks and the implementation of previously learned business data communications and switched networks concepts, principles and strategies to build a complete data communications network. This course is an in-depth study of technologies and equipment in modern communication networks. The TCP/IP stack and Cisco (or comparable) networking equipment are used to explore methodologies for designing, configuring, and maintaining communication networks. (Formerly BMIS 430). For information regarding prerequisites for this course, please refer to the Academic Course Catalog.


This course is offered to CSIS majors who seek to build advanced knowledge and skills needed in designing and deploying efficient and effective data communications and network technologies, which solve common business challenges. It culminates the networking series by picking up the switched networking taught in the CSIS 331 course and extending the student’s knowledge through routed networks and Internet technologies. By the end of the CSIS 330, CSIS 331, and CSIS 430 sequence, the student will have been exposed to most of the subject areas in a network certification exam.

Measurable Learning Conclusions:

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Discuss the relevance of course material to a biblical worldview.
  • Apply key telecommunication concepts (such as data transmission, packets, topology, the OSI model, protocols, and standards) associated with networks.
  • Apply key networking concepts to provide network services.
  • Implement network components and devices to provide a business with internetworking capabilities.
