Description

Communications technology requires knowledge of the interaction of hardware and software in complex networks. This course covers all aspects of computer networks, from the physical transmission of signals, through the protocols required for the safe transmission of data, to the end-to-end services built on the communications backbone. Wired and wireless networks are covered, and special emphasis is placed on the transportation of real-time audio and video media. There is also a strong focus on support and services for wired and wireless communication systems.
The course will give you the understanding, experience and flexibility to work at different levels with networked communication systems, from digital modulation through network architecture, routing and management. Our graduates have gone on to work for organisations such as BT, Cisco, Claranet, Dell, Google Enterprise, Hachette, HP, Huawei Technologies, JVC Europe and Quinix, as well as for smaller private companies.
Course content.

Westminster is a Cisco Networking Academy, and the course incorporates the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Security curriculum, giving you the opportunity to complete the CCNA Security qualification while studying for your degree.
