Elements and Performance Criteria

  1. Prepare for implementation of network routers and switches
  2. Implement network switches and routers
  3. Troubleshoot network switches and routers
  4. Document configuration and troubleshooting records

Performance Evidence

Evidence of ability to:

determine customer networking requirements
